#64- Sew little cutesyness

Ok, so I've been puttering a lot on, and I love so much of their stuff. I have ordered a purse and a couple tshirts, I have 2 bibs for my non-related neice and nephew coming to me, and I have found a ton of ideas.

Example 1 -Super cute penguins!! Which would require sewing on my part.

Example 2

I mean really. How cute is this little lamb????

And so now, since I have non-related neice and nephew, I'm even more into the idea of making cute little things for them. (the cutesyness would have a home! love! cuddles!)
(both of these above are from allthingssmall)

And then I saw this: (from asherjasper)
I don't know how well you can see it, but there's a tiny pea under all those mattresses! Now this isn't sewn. It is felted. Needle felted. Which, not that its EASY but it's a heck of a lot easier than sewing for me. So this kind of stuff will be what I'm making for them. To be clear, at their ages, i will not be making them a tiny felted pea that they could swallow. But it is an idea. So I'm working on finding the materials today (needles and maybe roving yarn- found out a college classmate sells her yarn- she dyes it but doesn't raise the little sheep the wool comes from- on etsy too!)
And so, I'll be working on these cute little things for a while. Maybe if I get good I'll post pictures. :)

#29- Get the car registered, insured, etc in PA

All I can say is done. You don't want the details. 1) they are boring and 2) doing anything that involves anything legal or requires paperwork is a huge, expensive, time consuming act of congress in this frigging state. Nuff said.

#69- Attend Ryan & MaryAnne's wedding

Yay! It was a beautiful wedding and fun reception and I am so happy MaryAnne is part of the family I call part of mine. :)

(more pictures to come once I fuss with my camera... Also should get some from my Daddy-o)

#82- Frame more photos

I'm working on this all over the house. So far the living room is looking pretty good :) We've got some pictures blown up of Ruby and Levi (Deron's neice and nephew) and one of the 3 of us (Deron, me, and Tanka Jane), and I also dug around and got pictures of each of us when we were little with the grandparent we were closest to blown up and framed too. :)

So we're nesting. Hee hee

(This one is blown up to a big 8x11)

#55 -Take yoga classes

Well I'm working on this one. I took a 'hot yoga' class a couple of weeks ago and I'm debating returning. I think it was good for me (and I didn't hurt after which is a wonderful thing) but the whole idea of being in that hot room with steam billowing out and everyone sweating all over the place and it getting on the floor and ... I don't know. Part of me is concerned that I'd end up getting something from there (a skin rash or something). The other part of me liked the sweating and hard work.

The church I'm going to now is going to start offering classes and also there's a few places really close to home I could go to. So I'm saying this one is in progress. I'll let you know.

#46- See 'Into the Wild' Movie

Finally got to see the movie. And am glad I did.

I won't lie, so maybe this will ruin it for some people (In which case if you have no idea about the story or movie of this young man, then stop reading now and go watch it. I'll be here.)


It was sad. I knew he was going to die. I knew the man who actually did all this did not survive his wilderness adventure. But for some reason I kept hoping that he did. I know, the ever optimist. His name is Chris McCandless, and this is him...

He lived for over 100 days in a broken down bus in the wilds of Alaska. And I envy him and know I am not the type of woman who could survive this. But I am in awe and thrilled to just know his story...
Not so much because I believe I have that kind of inner strength or that I could leave all else behind and live in the wild, but that there are people who can do this. People believe so much in the beauty of the earth and in its sustainability that they are able to live off the earth only.
I'm grateful for the people who can blaze a trail like he did... I hope I can follow in some very small way....

#17- Get a puppy (part 2)

This would be her- Tanka

Thursday, April 30, 2009

#85 & #17- all in one!

So #85 is Move (so I can get a puppy) and #17 is Get a puppy. It would appear as though all of that is occurring at about the same time... D and I have found a place, and currently all of his things are there. This is the place from the outside, and then a few shots from inside... Its a good size, hardwood floors, 2 bedrooms, washer and dryer hookups in the basement (which D owns both), big kitchen which is wonderful for me since my current kitchen has 6 tiny cabinets for all the stuff I have in there, storage space in the basement, and a garage- because as you have seen, somebody owns motorcycles. :)

And we can get a puppy.
