Red and White

I used my holiday baking twine to
wrap up a package
and left it sitting on my printer
so naturally I grabbed my crochet hook
and made a flower…naturally!

It's sorta a thing I do


OH and the other silly thing I did
was sit in the sun/pool for two hours
and I BURNED
OUCH
Now I'm pleased that I was able to go in pool
for the first time since surgery
but I'm not pleased about the painful
sunburn

Target Aloe Vera Gel
cooled in the refrigerator
to the rescue!

Mandala Inspired

After drawing a few mandalas yesterday
I'm looking at this crochet triangle a little bit differently now

I have a few new ideas
for new designs in crochet.
This triangle has inspired me!

Doodled A Mandala

Doodled a mandala today
while listening to music

I use to make these all the time
when I was younger!

I can't imagine why I stopped making them?

Do You Know The Muffin woMan?


I made
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Fresh out of the oven


I love it when I have bruised bananas 
perfect for baking yummy goods



So I guess
someone should try them...


I'll be the first one
YUM!

Art Bin container full

 in their own three draw system
too

When Supplies Run Out


Unfinished projects

I need to complete these two
crochet projects soon

However, I always seem to start new projects
especially when the materials I was using
in the previous project run out
such is the case with these two crochet cosies.

Dog Days of Summer

My dog is not amused with me
taking pictures!

They would rather nap happily despite
the hot temperatures outside!


So I decided to have a virtual
dress up party with them...

My dogs are still not amused with me!
LOL

Happy Sale

I received a gift coupon in the mail in May
for a local craft store, for $10.
I have wanted these brushes for so long since
my other ones were nicked some time back!
Upon arriving at craft store
I discovered artist supplies (brushes) were 50%
so...

between the sale and my gift coupon
plus the in store 20% off one item
no matter on sale or not
I walked away paying under $9 for the pair of these!
Amazing savings considering each is nearly $20 each
at normal retail!
Super happy!!!

Electric Cutie!

This electric cutie was
added to my family of typewriter
before my surgery...

along with this vintage metal typewriter table!

It was a gift from another typewriter enthusiast!

While on a salvage excursion
my friend and his son
happened upon many items
this cutie would not fit in their van
so...

I got a little call
and before I knew it they were at my door
delivering this!!!

I was in so much pain
(pre-surgery)
that I was overwhelmed by their kindness
for the gift and for brining it up our stairs
and setting it up!

I love this little metal table with
the folding side tray!

So now I have a little typewriter centre!

Two generations of typewriters
and
typewriter tables!

I look forward to being able to sit up for longer
periods of time
so I can get to typing here!

Five Days Later

Feeling good today!
It's been five days since my surgery
and today I feel better!
I've been off pain meds for two days
and though I 'feel' the aftermath
of surgery
I'm feeling better!

Yay!

Eight 8 oz Glasses A Day


When I was little my parents
would tell me to make sure
to drink enough water
daily

To date, I'm pretty good at keeping up with it
however
when challenged with other things I forget to
SO
I put together this little glass votive
with a newly crocheted skirt
to help me...

every morning I start anew!
I use a 6 oz glass
so I put in 11 glass stones

For every glass of water I drink
I add a glass stone to the dish...



I have this little
water station right next to the bottled water
and...

right on my tea table
so I walk by it daily




At the end of the day
I remove all the stones from the dish
and put them back in the glass votive
I also mentally make a tally
of how much water I drank that day.
The goal is to drink 11 glasses a day
but I'm pleased when I reach 8 or 9 on forgetful days!
