So, yet again another day sitting home alone waiting for the mail to come because my phone still hasn't shown up. I filled out a few more applications, then set myself down to watch movies. I finished another 2 potholders before I got sick of them, and decided to try this pattern. Its actually an amazing pattern by Karla and it worked up a lot quicker than I thought. Only took me about 3 hours, if that. I really enjoyed working on it and look forward to making another, if not the whole gang! 

Pot Roast and a Potholder

So yesterday was eventful. I decided that I was going to cook supper, and had to make a run to Fairway to get some Onion Soup. We chopped potatoes, carrots and celery, tossed some mushroom soup on top, and threw it all in the oven for about 3 hours. Meanwhile, I made some potholders (since we didn't have any) and made these. I made the very first one out of Red Heart SS, but then after doing some reacearch I found out that some WW yarns that don't have cotton in them melt. So I went and grabbed 2 small balls of Sugar n' Cream, and set to work. I made a very small one first and the second one was a bit bigger, so we'll see how they work.

Later, when supper was finally finished, we invited the neighbors up and had that delicious looling pot roast. It turned out really well! I am so proud of myself i could just burst ^.^ Anyway, today is another slow day so I think I might work on one of my other zillion projects. Happy Hooking and Blessed Be!

Random Blarg

So today was a really loooong day. Jake had to work at 3am, and I couldn't fall back to sleep, so I ended up wandering around the apartment and I decided that we were going to have chicken tenders for supper, home made. I looked up a recipe earlier that I thought would be good. If you're brave you can try the recipe here. Overall, they were pretty good. The only thing that I could have done differently is maybe leave them in longer or add some egg to the batter to make it crunchier. Either way, Jake sure loved them!

Later on I'm hoping to make some cookies, then pop in Young Frankenstein and chill out. The neighbors are having a party downstairs, but neither one of us are really interested it, so staying in seems to be a good idea.

Also, no dice on the job frounteer yet, but hopefully I'll get something soon. I've only been here a couple of weeks, but its already feeling like home.

I've Never....

I'm stealing this idea from Jenna, whom I've just started folloing. You can find her blog here.

I'm 20 years old, and I've never...

1. Traveled outside of the country
2. Been to a art gallery
3. Seen a musical in person
4. Fully defeated Mario on the original Nintendo

 5. Hurt an animal out of anger
6. Owned a car
7. Been to a really fancy resturant
8. Been Pregnant (thank the Goddess)
9. Played in a sandbox
10. Been to a haunted house.

Some of the answers you come up with may surprise you, when you sit and think about them!

Candy Wrappers!

Lookie! My next crafty blarg bracelet. I took a picture of the pattern and then as well as the clasp. I made it from Star Burst Tropical candy wrappers, and it turned out pretty cool! the hardest part was probably the clasp, but really it wasnt THAT hard.

Anyway, right now I'm just waiting for Jake to get going so that he can run to the store to get me some cinamon as well as a few other things. I'm FINALLY tring to make that banana bread, but of course we dont have all the ingredients -.- so I got his butt out of bead to go get them. Aint I sweet? :D

Today I'm just going to clean and watch movies with the neighbor down stairs, Kylie. She's really cool and we've become fast friends. Later, I'll post my haul from Hobby Lobby (Which is a very dangerous store, never take me in there without proper supervision) and ya. Squee!

Bored Crafting

Lookie what I made! A Pop-tab bracelet! lol I was super board for the past few days and so I decided to brouse youtube. I found a tutorial to make pop tab bracelets, and so I immediatly set down to make one. I closed it with a paper clip for the clasp and its loose enough that it wont strangle my wryst but tight enough that it wont slide off my hand. I'm super proud of it :D

Anyway, not much else going on really. The neighbor and I figured that we'd go for a walk uptown, and after that I HAVE to do the dishes. Before Jake comes home. Because I've been procrastinating on doing them for 4 days and we are out of glasses. -.- sadness. But either way, today is going to be a good day even though its flipping FREZING outside. Time to pull out my awesome hat and scarf!

*knock knock* Are You Still There?

Hi hi! Yes, it is me, your lovely little pest again. So much has changed since my last blog post, and I figured it was about time to post again.

Well, first off, I'm not suicidal anymore. Yey me! Second, I don't live in Wisconsin anymore. Again with the Yey! Jake and I got an appartment togeather and we are living in Iowa now. We got here about a week ago and I am busying myself with making the appartment a home and finding a new job, as well as getting back into my crafts. Its nice, being able to wake up in the morning and see my lover off to work, then busy myself with dishes and laundry, like I was home. Like I had made myself a home, with Jake. Squee!

I don't know how often I'll be able to post, but I'll try to make it at least once a week, or maybe once a day. I'm not sure yet. For right now, True Blood calls my name. Tootles!
