Scarves Round 4

I'm getting super fast at making these!  I'm going to time myself start to finish and see how many hours it takes me to finish one.  I'll report the findings later, but in the meantime here are some non-timed finished products. :)

Happy Birthday...

to the "Saint" of saintolive!  I love you, mom!  Thank you for helping me become the crafty person I am today.  Also, thanks for helping me learn how to "free up" and "go with the flow."  Since this is an OLYMPIC YEAR... the only way to celebrate is with going to the London GAMES!!!  Well, maybe we'll have to save that for RUSSIA, but for this year we'll be there in spirit as stitch number 8,806 on the American Flag that will be at the Olympics!!!  
Here's a picture of my mom, Meb, medals, and me!  We. Love. the. Olympics!!!

"Like the marathon, life can sometimes be difficult, challenging and present obstacles, however if you believe in your dreams and never ever give up, things will turn out for the best.” - Meb

Exciting News!!!

We have joined our first Package Pals via C.R.A.F.T. and we are beyond excited with who we were partnered with.  Our match is Coley and she is a perfect fit for us for so many different reasons.  We are new to Package Pals, so we'll keep you updated on this fun project!  And what better way to celebrate than with frozen yogurt... love it!  This was actually consumed after the Mt. Baldy Run to the Top last year.  Due to weather conditions, I received my first DNF, but like my second graders would say, "It wasn't my fault!" ;)
To be continued...


I'm not even going to lie... blogging can be a little tedious and time consuming and if I just sat there waiting for our photos to upload I would go cRaZy (if I'm not already crazy enough).  So, to answer one of our FAQs, I will answer:
"what do you do while you are waiting for everything to upload"
Well, some of my favorites include:
1. painting my neighbor's nails
2. untangling my dog from the bushes
3. creating fun chalk art with the neighbor kids
4. CROCHETING (my current obsession)  
5. Listen to my speech class lectures... while CROCHETING!  :)



I would LOVE to be "dreaming" right about now, but... I.  can't.  sleep.  Waaaa!
