It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

My apologies for abandoning the blog this weekend, I feel like it’s been weeks since I last posted, about the kindle, but really it has only been 3 days. Well, I got my KindleFire Friday and I haven’t put it down! I’ve read one book so far and it’s superb!! The touch screen is fabulous I can’t put it down! I’ve got pandora on it, and I’ve been playing words with friends and facebook and twitter work well on it. The Comix graphic novel reader is AMAZING! you can zoom in on bubble and go block by block, it’s fantasic =) I’ve read Blackest Night so far on it. And who could not love thousands and thousands of free books and graphic novels, i haven’t even looked at the free movies or music yet, between pandora and netflix i’m covered for now.

This weekend, Saturday, was my 23rd birthday. Nothing was planned so we just hung out for most of the day. I got some knitting done and we beat Mario Kart. I got some cook birthday presents though ❤ aside from the kindle James got me a new winter coat, which was desperately needed since a hoodie apparently isn’t sufficient for winter. I got my Grams package today and she sent me some sentimental ornaments for our tree and she also made me some really cool green lantern coasters! They are so cool I’ll take pictures at some point. She also sent socks and a cute sweat shirt that says “santa’s favorite helper”.

I’ve been baking today and wrapping presents =) It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, even if we don’t have snow yet. I’m going to cut out the sugar cookies and bake them so we can frost them when James gets home and watch Christmas shows.

I have also been knitting like a madwomen, I’ve been trying to do 2 or 3 coffee cozy’s a day but still can’t seem to keep up with demand which is fantastic. I’m also working on more headbands since they seem to be selling so well. And of course scarves!

 Some scarves are ready to ship but if you don’t see the color you like I can always make one for you! I have red, purple and black ready to ship as of today, and I have the yarn on hand to make white, gray and brown.

 

And speaking of knitting I’m going to be doing a craft show in June, I know it sounds far off but I need as much time as I can get to stock up on product. I”d like to not take anything out of my etsy shop for the show.

Grab a cup of coffee and let’s catch up.

Well Thanksgiving was a BLAST! I hope everyone had a great time at their feasts!

Erin and her boyfriend left to go back to Cape Cod this morning, and James went to work so for the first time in 5 days the house was silent! It’s nice having family around but I am happy to be back to my routine. I feel very behind with my shop right now, I usually knit for hours every day and didn’t have a chance this weekend (not that i’d trade spending time with family for knitting haha!) This morning I got straight to work on a new Headband/Neckwarmer like this one

Only the new one is a light green

I was so excited when I sold the white one over the weekend. I wasn’t sure if they would sell or not.
Cyber Monday was GREAT for Etsy! and I’m happy to report my shop did well over the weekend!

Today to catch up on some of my knitting I worked on more coffee cup cozy’s, I made 2 green and a brown one today, I can’t wait to show off some of my new button finds! I have some cool metal Celtic knots and an Irish Claddagh ring button

This is an example of one of my Cozy’s. This one is just a basic red one with a white stripe around the top.

I’m also working on getting more scarves like this one listed

Well moving on from Etsy stuff

Now that I’m back to my regularly scheduled program of a life, i’m happy to report I worked out today! I am still doing the Ballet Body workout and finding it a lot of fun ( My thighs are killing me), and a total throwback to my dance classes, which is fantastic! I also did AM 20 minute yoga today as well and am planning on doing the PM 20 minute yoga with James tonight and making that a habit we get into. And along with getting back in shape now that thanksgiving is over we’ll be back to eating healthy! I can’t wait to start gardening this spring, i’m having so much fun researching the urban gardening stuff and coming up with idea’s that we can do to grow all of our own fruits and veggies next year.

I just finished the second book in the “A Modern Witch” series by Debora Geary which was AWESOME! After I finish the 3rd book, which just came out I will do a book review on it. First I have to find it for my e-reader though. Which brings me to a new topic E-READERS!
I have a Sony Pocket E-Reader and I LOVE IT! I’ve had it for 3-4 years now, not quite sure, but I’ve had it since it came out.  BUT it is getting old, and it’s just not as quick as some of the new ones. I would really like a touch screen one. Maybe I’ll write Santa and ask for one for Christmas 🙂 I’ve always disliked the E-Readers that weren’t E-Ink but the Kindle Fire might make me change my mind … who knows, maybe my Etsy shop will make enough money I can buy one for myself for my birthday! Even if I couldnt’ get the Kindle Fire, the Kindle Touch is only $99 dollars right now which is less than I spent on the one I have now

That’s all for now, I”m going to start knitting some dish cloths …
