the economy sucks!!!!!!

i have been trying to find a job since christmas, and nothing yet!!!! why!!!!????? everytime i go for a job, i'm told that at least 25 other people applied too, and they all say that i'm well qualified for the job, but i never get a call back. why!?!?!?!!!!!! i'm a good person dammit!!!

on a lighter note, i have been working on a hexagon afghan with all the tons of yarn i have in my stash. i got the pattern from attic 24's blog page
her blog is so colorful and well written. i just want to go over her house, have hot cocoa, and crochet all day!!!
here is the page that has the instructions for her hexagons

i'm back muhaaaaaaaa!!!!

hey everyone!!! sorry i have been busy!! i have been on a crochet kick lately and i have been in and out of doctor offices (fun times :( ) and on top of all that my pc got some trojan viruses which stopped me from going online. my hard drive died on me and i lost all of my pictures and other stuff. after crying on the inside, my wonderful hubby went to best buy and fixed my baby up like new. he put in windows vista and that enables you to have all kinds of sidebar gadgets including a blogger one, and most of them are free!!! if it's free, it's for me!! (quote by my grandma)

ok people i'm back

i've been pretty busy lately. i got a job at netflix, i opened an etsy store . and i finally caught up on my tivo!!!! me and the hubby have also been working on fixing up the house to get ready to sell. we are looking for a new start, so if anyone wants to live on Long Island, NY let me know. i also updated my myspace page, but i haven't put any of my work there because the only people who want to friend me are sex crazed fools. i'm not saying i'm drop dead gorgeous or something, but if you are looking for a good time, there is a section in craigslist for that.

my sis finally moved out on her own, so my mom calls me all the time because she has no one to talk to at home.

this summer i hope to get to adventureland with my son, and make a 2.5 million etsy sales!! anyway onto the crafty stuff i've been doing

i was commissioned to make 2 6 month sweaters for twins to be born in June, a boy and a girl

this is the girl's sweater. i didn't get to the boy's sweater at the time i took the pictures. that's supposed to be a goat, but he's blind and deaf in this picture. i used the loop stitch for the hair. i did that so the goat would have "hair" and it's saved me time during the finishing because you're doing the loop stitch while you knitting. so i had to knit a raglan pullover in fair isle (for the words on the bottom), intarsia and loop stitch for the goat! i almost lost me mind! not to mention i had to chart the whole thing before i started
oh and just so you guys know, the cost of a flat rate post office box went up (yea, sucks i know)
and the ball in the background of the second picture is for sale at my etsy shop (sorry, shameless promo)

bye :)

i came home to a great suprise!!!

I have the best husband ever!!! look what was at home waiting for me? i've wanted a dressform for the longest time, and when i came home and i opened the door and there it was. it took me about 5 minutes to set it up. so i got a new toy and so did the little one. and on top of all that, my wonderful husband also picked up my machines for me!!! so now i can get working. next week, i'm supposed to be off of work, so i will be able to get a lot of knitting and sewing work done.
my hubby is so cute, he called after i got home after work and he says "did i do good?" of course he did. he did great!!

you know you have a soulmate when you have been with someone for a number of years, and he still has the ability to suprise you (in a good way)

cute pictures of the day

yes folks, i realize the date, but can you say no to a little boy who wants to dress up as superman? and yes, i do clean his room and make his bed everyday. he's 5 and he has 2.5 million toys that always end up either in his bed or all over the floor. they do stay in his room, so i really can't be too mad about it.

for all the people who don't have little boys, that is a spongebob chair, the new hess monster truck, a hess spaceship, 2 library books, a wagon, and his floor are those foam puzzle pieces that i picked up at BJs. the are pirmary colors and on the other side that are grey. this floor is super easy to clean and take care of. i use clorox anywhere spray to spot clean, and regular floor cleaner when i mop the floor. in my opinion, better than carpet in a kid's room

ok nothing that great really happened, and that's why i haven't written anything in a little while

so since my machines are still in the shop. they are ready, but i can't get them out yet, i figured, hey i'll do some knitting. i'm working on my top down brown raglan, and what of all things happen? the damn join broke on my denise interchangeable needle. after giving it the look of death and not cursing because i'll get a "stop yelling, mommy!" or a "don't say that!" so i just connecteed another join, picked up all the dropped stitches (all 22 of them), put the broken join in an envelope, with a dollar and mailed it off to the company. they have this lifetime warrenty that if the joins break, you can send them back, and they will send you back a brand spanking new one with a little apology note (can you tell this has happened before). i'm kinda scared to do anything else because it might break too. o well, i really should catch up on the tivo.
hopefully you guys are craftier than i am right now
