Results from the Creativity Weekend

I got together with my friend Kimberly this past Saturday. We went shopping for supplies and then spent the afternoon making cards. We had a ball! Now I don't need to buy any more supplies for card making for a very long time. Well, maybe some more ink pads, but other than that...

I was just reading a blog about this girl who wasn't going to buy any art supplies this year. The exception was that she was going to budget $24 for the year just in case she ran out of something, that's $2 per month for art supplies. I know I could easily do the same thing and I probably should. Maybe I will.

NOTE: The address for the blog I refer to above is:

Flashdance style at Church

I wore my newly finished leg warmers to church this past Sunday with a dress I've had for years. The dress is long, made of rayon (I think) so it's kind of full and drapy, it has long sleeves, and it exactly matches the bright blue/purple color in these leg warmers. You could only see them at the ankles, but they kept my legs nice and warm to and from church and to the grocery store afterwards. Yeah! I love them. They were knit with Noro Kureyon yarn.

Creativity weekend!

I'm looking forward to a creative weekend starting tomorrow with my friend Kimberly. We are getting together and making cards and maybe ATCs and who knows what else. We both have huge stashes of stuff. It's going to be so much fun!!! I'm hoping to post all that we do from this weekend on Monday and maybe by then I'll have the Noro knitted leg warmers all sewn up and have them photographed and ready to post too.

Church Plant "window"

I painted this to help illustrate levels of involvement from congregation members in the new church plant.

A Hat for Bob.

This hat for Bob has been done for quite some time now, but I just got around to posting a picture of it. It turned out pretty good and best of all he loves it (even though he isn't smiling in this photo)! Says it's the only hat he has ever had that is a little loose or at least not so tight as most hats are for him. It'a lot thicker and softer than it looks too. I've got about three skeins of this yarn left. Not sure what they will become.
