welcome to our crazy world

Oh wow…

Jennifer, Hodge and Podge (From Squirrel Picnic) just made my day!  It’s all rainy so I can’t get great shots of some key chains I’m working on.

I’m the winner of the Great cookie give-away.  What a great start to a so far blah afternoon.  Means I’ll have to get a small tree, because the one we have here at nIIz Designs, never really looks full when I put it up.  I swear the artificial one is trying to do me in.

And thank you Becky (http://thecerealbaker.blogspot.com) for the other half of the prize.

how to wear an oversized scarf

Oh! I love this look, smooth the edges of the pipe a little, maybe if you’re in a crafty mood do some etchings on it to jazz it up a little more. What do you guys think?

Crafted in Carhartt

To all my those girls who are rugged at heart, there’s a great way to wear those oversized scarves. In the plumbing and pipe section of your local hardware store, grab a few copper couplings and see what you can do with them. I always have a hard time tying and wrapping scarves successfully around my neck. Try this fool-proof way to secure your scarf. It only takes a few seconds.

week in OMG Headaches

Well, okay shop talk won’t be in this week.  Only because I spent Monday with my partner’s son getting his laptop situation fixed… Seriously I think they were just telling us things in the end there to get us out of the store because yeah… I was getting growlie, enough growl there to probably impress Wolverine…

Though we did slip away for a while to see “Now You See Me”, which really if you can get around to seeing it do.  It was an enjoyable movie and impressed me greatly, which usually movies he picks don’t do that (Last one that did was Daybreakers, but I have weird tastes in movies).

When we got home I went to try to work on some stuff on my laptop, and it didn’t want to update some things I actually needed to have updated, so I had to go back to factory settings to get that fixed… Though of course I dinked around trying to fix it on my own until Wednesday before giving up and resetting.  What fun there.  Have everything back up and running and while I enjoy catching up on Castle I have a scarf in the works, only because thinking on other things right now is a ‘yeah right’ moment.  It’s not going to happen.  

Totally promise a better post next week, and maybe that pattern for the frogs if we don’t go out to Knobles.  Hm… right now I’m craving cotton candy..
