New Etsy Shop

Okay! I have been super busy this year. Not olnly have I moved, started my senior year of college and taken a few Spanish courses. But I have finally gotten into the world of online selling. I know right! It first started with selling a few thigns on But now Ill be adding to an etsy shop. Right now I don't have any pictures but Ill be updating here a lot more frequently. My lovely blog readers will be the first to know if I have a sale, or special right here in this space.

In other news, I searched 'one crafty army bride' in google and my site was the first to pop up (besides the US army site, but does that really count?). These are exciting times.

More photos and goodness later :)

My next big project.

So I spent most of my Tuesday evening dying this yarn. I have work this weekend but hopefully sometime this weekend I might rinse out the yarn and let it dry. I am a little nervous as to how well the colors will come out. this is the first time I have dyed yarn. So I am letting the dye set (translation: I got distracted and haven't had a chance to actually see what happened) I have done tie-dye and I used the same method of mixing for the dye. This is all 100% cotton yarn and it was all white when I started. So here is hoping :)

Transfering Power

This is a test post to make sure that I have done everything right. I needed to change my email and this sure is a lot more work than I thought it would be. But enjoy this photo ;)

Yay! It snowed here yesterday and I went out for a tiny bit to shoot pictures. But the cold chased me back inside. That is OK though, I got some funny pictures of my mom cleaning off her car. And this one. I really liked this one so I thought I should share :)

Projects and Other Things

If only I could be back here right now. I took this while on my road trip and wonderful vacation in Georgia. I have decided to attempt Project 365 which is explained better on Becky Higgins' Blog. I saw the project in the Creating Keepsakes magazine January 2009 issue and really liked the way they scrapbooked the photo for each day.

I don't have any completed layouts as of yet. And I defiantly couldn't afford the kit which had problems anyway. So I have decided to make my own method. I will use the layout/sketch that the project's page protectors make but on my own 12 x 12 paper. This a great first project to break into 12 x 12 scrapbooking as I have only done 8 x 8 so far. I will use the top four photos in 3.5 x 5 size with the journaling blocks along the bottom probably 3.5 X 2 in size.

I haven't completely made up my mind as not every page is going to be the same along the bottom. I have some great premade tag pads made by K&Company and ColorBok that I will be using as well. All in all my pages will be unique for each weeks photos. I also have decided to start with January 1st, I will just go from Thursday to Wednesday on each two page layout. Overall I will not push too hard for this challenge, and I find myself with to many things to take photos of each day. I may get around to posting them here along with the completed layouts, I might not. Right now I have other things to focus on. Like school and my living area :) I will make a new post for the photos I have so far.

So I finally made it home after the long ten hour drive from Georgia. Good thing I am tired it means I will sleep well tonight. I am sad to leave Hector and not be on vacation anymore. But I am very excited to start the new semester on January 19. Until then it is cleaning, laundry and more preparation for this new year.
