Friday fun!

Hello everyone! Did you all have a great week? How are you all doing on your resolutions??? Still hanging in there? I am proud to say that I have 2 bags of clothing going to Goodwill – 1 bag in the “garage sale” section – and – drum roll please – I have 4 bags of things that went in the TRASH!! My closets are cleaner, more streamlined, organized AND – I love it! I also worked on my “stash” closet – I now have my yarn on the shelves – organized – I know, be still my heart!! I also have my sewing machine and sewing related items in there as well. AND – I have some paper craft things in a clear plastic box – all ready for me when I need to make a card quickly!! How about that ladies!! It felt so good – this weekend I am going to tackle my kitchen cupboards and the pantry!

I also brought some magazines I wanted to save for various reason downstairs and put them in a book shelf I was not using – decluttering is happening at the Christensen Huis!

I even worked on my half pi shawl this week a bit. I am almost done with section 2! And!! I went to SNB last night and had fun laughing with the ladies at Friends of Wool. It was Sue’s birthday and she brought goodies to eat!! A fun evening was had by all. The Afgan Class of 2006 was there with all their squares to work on assembly – I have to tell you, I was amazed with how beautiful their squares were. This caused me much excitement, because the Afgan Class of 2007 will meet in 2 weeks to start on their afgan journey – and I have a ticket for that trip!! There are several techniques that I do not know how to do that I will be learning this year! So, this class will continue to help me with my resolution of learning!

I did have a small breakdown on the yarn front. My daughter wants me to make a “shawl” for her birthday – I truly tried and swatched some yarn from my stash, but I did not have anything that I could get the perfect gauge with. I had to buy 2 skeins of yarn – but – I found it on sale at Friends of Wool – so I only paid $8 for it!! This did not break my budget at all!! I will be so excited to see my daughter’s face when she opens her gift! I shall try and post a photo of said shawl and daughter #1 after the 6th of February – which is her birthdate. Hold the phone – she will be 18 years old!!! I cannot believe this, because I swear she was just learning to walk yesterday!!! Where does the time go??

We are getting close to “reveal” time in SP9 – I have been having so much fun with my spoilee – I have been dropping hints the past couple of weeks – and we have been laughing and having so much fun together. She is an awesome pal! I am working on the finishing touches for her last package – she is a SAHM and she home schools her children! AND, her husband is in the Army. As the end of the month gets closer, I will post the link to her blog and ask you all to pop over and say hello to her!

Have an awesome weekend everyone!
