I've put aside my crochet hook & knitting needles (yes, I have projects on both right now) for a glue gun. This is a VERY special project that I've been working on since mid-October and I'm just about done. Good thing, too, because it will be the first Christmas present given this year... and it will be given on Sunday!

So... I hope you all are having a good Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for working from home (even a double shift on a holiday) because it means I can craft it up while getting paid double time. :)

The Catholic Pick-Up Line Song

I've been totally addicted to this song for several days now. If you're not Catholic you probably won't get many of the references, but suffice to say it's all about letting God be at the center of your relationship... and still being cute & flirty.

Seriously... if a man ever used one of these lines on me I'd marry him on the spot.

Ok, maybe not the rosary line. That one was lame. But "I'd be a second class relic if you'd give me a kiss"? Oh yeah. "My guardian angel said he thinks yours is kind of cute"? Yes please. And "You remind me of Mary"? Oh my goodness. And ESPECIALLY "I'll be the answer to your novena if you'll answer mine too". You have to be a crazy Catholic single girl to really appreciate that one... and I happen to be one. :)

Yarn over yarn over chain one two three!

I'll be at LAHC tomorrow teachin' folks how to crochet in-the-round to make some fun coffee cup sleeves just in time to stuff some stockings. I'm super excited.

Package Update

So I've done a fairly good job keeping up with at least one of this year's goals. I've sent one package a month to the soldier for the months that he has been deployed. Mind you, November marks only the 4th month.

The first package made it into his hands in just one week! I was totally excited about this, especially looking forward to baking season. Except the 2nd package went out on September 30th (I was running late) and the 3rd package went out on October 18th and he STILL hasn't received EITHER ONE! I can't even begin to tell you how annoyed I am by this. I had planned to start baking this month since it's colder but I can't have cookies and brownies sitting in some mail storage container for over a month! I'm going to have to skip Thanksgiving and send a Christmas package out next month in hopes it gets there in time.

Blankie love

18 different vibrant colors of the softest cottons I could find all wrapped up in white.

I love this blanket so much, I'm seriously considering keeping it for my own non-existent child.

I'm so in love and it's not even anywhere near done yet!
