I got a job!!!! I'm so excited. I will be working for a volunteer organization which I have been involved with for quite some time. I am still going to take the teaching exam but thank goodness only as a back up! In this crazy economy, I've learned it's great to have a back up plan.

Pincushion Challenge-Sea

So I needed some direction in my crafting and so I decided to join the Pincushion Challenge. Basically every month or two you get a new theme around which to create a pincushion. There are so many amazing, talented crafters on the site so I hope I do it justice! Here's my first submission.

The March/April theme is "the sea". I thought of a desert island immediately. My shells turned out okay, they need a little work but I wanted to try and be somewhat to scale with the palm tree.

I love Hotlanta in the springtime

Okay, that's really all I have to say. I love and long for those wonderful spring days. Saturday it snowed and I mean REALLY snowed. I set out for my Saturday morning run and ran in to a face full of snow. I had never really been out in the snow when it came down that fast before. No sunglasses so the flakes fell into my eyes and felt like melting bugs. (You know what I mean, when a bug gets in your eye, but imagine that bug melting...weird I know).

Anyway on Sunday my beau and I headed out to enjoy the still a bit cold but beautiful day. I love the colors of ATL in the spring. Here are a couple pics of our beautiful Atlanta day. Oh and one pic of his converse sneaks that I just love!

This week's updates

I've had a really good week! Made some really fun crafts. The first was is a camera case for my oldie but goodie digital camera. I'm a huge fan of gnomes so I made a little green pouch and put a gnome on it along with a little mushroom home. The mushroom turned out better than the gnome but not bad for a first attempt. I love the way the bright white button looks against the green and yellow.

The second thing I made is a little felt Fender for my boyfriend. He's been seeing me making all these softies lately and has teased about wanting one of his own. So I made him a felt guitar. He cracked up when I showed him but absolutely LOVED it! The detail needs some work but again it's a first attempt.
