Complete Overload!

That is exactly how I feel today! Blogger isn't working all that great today, and nothing else seems to be going well either. I'm trying to get some work done for my new boss, and I keep getting distracted (as you can tell). I have so much running around to do today it isn't funny. Now that I am working for hubby's friend, I think that hubby is getting a little jealous. Now he is overloading me with things to do for him! Ugh!!! All of the running around is for the hubby, meanwhile I am trying to create spreadsheets for boss #2 (I'll call him). Well I gotta go wake up the kid, and get in the shower to the running process... Wish me luck! Lots of it~

Gobble! Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

If anyone has been looking for me, I am sorry that I haven't been around. I have been running a Valentines square swap that has been keeping me pretty busy. Lots of emails to keep up with. All the same it is a lot of fun meeting lots of crocheters, and knitters. Its nice to share something in common with others.

I am sure that Kari is still screaming from the rooftops that Bush is safely back in his office! I for one didn't think he was going anywhere. I am also a Republican so I am very happy as well. Yes I did go out and vote~ it really does matter! I think it would be a grave injustice to show other countries that we have no trust in our leader by kicking him out of office.

I haven't been getting any of my swaps done lately. I am currently in wayyyy to many! Its not laziness, just no time. I have been making some Christmas presents for family. Squeezing out some winter accessories here, and there. I'm also concentrating on my secret pals (2 different swaps). All the presents are here, now I have to get them out.

My one secret pal from Crochetville sent me a nice card the other day. It was so sweet. I didn't realize that they had a site dedicated to Teddybear cards. I guess she noticed the teddy wearing the scarf in my picture. I must have about 100 bears. Currently they are in boxes in my basement. We were in the middle of re-painting the living room, and boxed them up. Well it has been a while, because we already need to re-paint, and my bears are still in them boxes in the basement. I guess I am lazy when it comes to certain things huh?

Well I hope to get some pictures taken soon. I know that I am always promising. The computer has been on the fritz, and I just got a new part time job at home. Why does everything happen around the holidays??? Can someone answer that???

Well I have been really busy making lots of goodies for all of the good girls, and boys on my list. Mainly the easy scarf & hat Christmas gift, but I am planning others. I really should get a WIP bar up on my site. That might make me a little more motivated, and let you all know what I am working on.

I want to make some baby booties for a favorite nephew, who's very new to the family! I also want to make my daughter some shawls, as well as ponchos. Everybody has them, and she wants them too. Besides that she is always cold!

On another note ~ I received my scarf the other day from Kristina (LadyK) over at Crochetville. It is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much! I have to take a picture of it to share. It is pink to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness! It is so soft, and warm I've been wearing it when I crochet to keep the chill away. Geez... kid's cold, I'm cold! Sounds like I am cheap with the heat doesn't it? LOL Actually I like being a little on the chilly side. It keeps me awake.

I also sent out the one that I made for Jayme. Jayme has posted a picture of it on her site. She is so sweet! I hope she doesn't mind that someone else was caught wearing it first! Here I have a photo of the perpetrator!

Good thing she was caught Jayme or you might not have gotten the scarf!!! Look at those beady eyes!!! Whew... lol

I so love these swaps at Crochetville they really are the best group around!
