Yarn Along 1/18/2012

Unfortunately my blanket hasn't been touched much since last week but I will be getting back to it soon. 
Right now I'm working on baby gifts for 2 of my cousins, one who is being induced today.

Baby boy set

Hat for baby girl

Matching shoe for baby girl
I need to finish up the second shoe and then get back to my afghan.
Right now I'm also reading Organized Simplicity on kindle, plus I'm a few pages into One True Love .

Yarn Along 1/11/2012

Remembered last minute to take a picture of the day and remembered it's yarn along day. Spring semester started for the hubs and I this week so my nose has been in school books and websites. I still try to fit in at least 30 mins to work on my afghan.

Tonight I also started a book series that I saw one of the coupon deal websites, Samantha Moon series for kindle, only $.99. It's a vampire for hire mystery series, I'm only on Chap 5 of the first book right now. So far it isn't a bad read.

Yarn Along

This is my first time joining Ginny's Yarn Along 
Perfect since I love to read and crochet! Since the holidays I haven't stopped by the library to pick up any new books that aren't food or crochet/knit related but I have been crocheting here and there.

I showed my afhgan yesterday but here it is again. It's a simple feather and fan ripple from my The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet and is very similar to Attic 24's ripple that she is making but I am not sure if she is putting 3 dc or 4 dc inbetween, mine is 3. I did get the inspiration to to single single double and I'm loving it!
I also have been working on a this market bag on and off for the past few months. It's very repetitive and I get bored with it but I hope to have it finished by the end of the month.
I have a few projects I need to start for 2 of my cousins who are due in the next month. One boy and one girl. So I'll definitely be making a set of shoes and a hat, very similar to this.

So that is what I'm working on and hopefully will be much further along on all of them by next week!

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

Which include Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years! Wow I never realized that it's been 2 full months without a post!
I started several post over the past few months and got sidetracked each time.
It's a new year and time management is a major thing I'm working on this year. I have several things going on right now and I seriously need to budget my time better to accomplish my goals. It's a good thing I don't have a job outside the house!
Tally goes back to school tomorrow and spring semester starts on the 9th for the hubs and I. I am looking into opening an etsy shop for my crochet projects. I took a break after doing some hat/scarf orders right before Christmas for some local people who saw some hats my mom requested for gifts. It was nice to have a little extra income right before Christmas. I put the etsy shop as a goal by the end of February. I'm hoping to be finished with a very large afghan I'm working on by then, I measure it to be about 7 ft wide when I first started and I'm not totally sure how long I'm wanting it yet.

17 rows in Afghan
I am doing the digital version of Project Life, hoping it will kick me into gear with taking more pictures and getting back into scrapbooking on a regular basis.

So on Monday I will start posting my menu plan and posting a few more blog post in between of my crocheting, scrapbooking, or just life in general to be a little more blog active! As of right now I'm thinking that Sunday will be my project life update, I should have my double pagers done by then if life lets me!

That's my plan at least and we'll see if I need to change it!
