Birfday LOOOT!

Hooray for Birthdays! They seem to sneak up on you, then BAM they're gone again!

Thanks to everyone who gave me cash, as that is always greatly appreciated! Saving for various things is hard!

I recieved a dozen PINK roses, very colorful carnations, a delicious Oreo mini-cake, cookies, many knitting accessories, crocheting stuff, a handmade knitting needle holder rollup thingie, pink origami cutie animals, some in-game WoW pets (omg nerd), super-funky socks, love, and SOME AWESOME PURSES!

This one is from Shane's Mom, Jan! HOW COOL IS THAT!? The little teabag is a magnetic closure, and the top flops over to access the inside of the purse! The top is a little coin-pouch. I'm adding to my bizarre purse collection!

This one is from Eva! SHE KNIT ME A PINK PURSE!!!! I love it I love it I love it! Handmade stuff is the greatest.

As for the latest with myself, I'm sewing a purse currently (when I feel up to it!). I've also signed up for an online knit/crochet random exchange, which is neato, I plan on making an Erica Scarf (the red one I've pictured before) in a different color, since that's one of my favorite things I've ever made. Still working on Chelsea's blanket, and I'm still building a base of stuff to make an Etsy shop eventually.

As well as all of this, I was contacted by an online magazine, and asked to do an article for their Fall edition! It's a natural living / family magazine that does quarterly issues. HOORAY! Writing my Montessori blog is actually doing something!
