Where I've been for the past year....

I have been having the most wonderful, relaxing summer. Much needed after the craziest year of my life! I graduated college, moved to a new town, adopted a puppy child, and completed my first year of teaching. I haven't posted on this blog in such a long time! I just went through my old posts and I love having pictures and documentation of my adventures.

We got this evil monster last November.

And now she is huge, and more evil than ever.

She's stinkin' cute though.
More updates to come :)

Knitting Needle Organizing

Its almost the new year! Which means I am desperately attempting to organize my stuff in an attempt to make my life less chaotic...I am in need of ideas for knitting needle storage! I have so many needles and I want to organize them by size, but I can't figure out the best way to do this. Here are some ideas:

How do you keep track of your needles?!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

There is something I just LOVE about this time of year. I feel like a kid again; I'm giddy and cheerful. I love holiday decorating but have never been one to dress like its Christmas. I don't want to look like a walking Christmas tree. So I decided to try and make some subtle holiday jewelry for my shop.
I think they are cute and Christmasy, but not overwhelmingly kitschy.
This is one of my absolute favorite necklaces. It would be perfect to wear year-round, but the bright red reminds me of cranberries.

I'm thinking about doing a giveaway from my shop if I can reach 20 followers! So follow me and tell your friends :)

Fall semester is over!

I can't believe how insane college has been these past few weeks. An 80 page project was turned in on Thursday and I don't think its hit me that in 2 days I'll be leaving college and heading back home down the mountain. I'm sad, but excited to start new things!
I'm also excited to finally begin some Christmas crafting!
This is a cowl for my sister that I've been working on. It's been a good day, brunch at my favorite bagel place and then knitting and tv watching for the rest of the day!

I'm mostly ignoring the fact I need to pack up by Tuesday, but knitting is soo much better!

Etsy Loves: Prints

I constantly fantasize about my future home. I want to cover the walls in gorgeous art.
Lately I've been running across a ton of prints I am in love with on Etsy (click the photos for links).

I bet you'd never guess looking at all these quirky, childish prints that I'm an elementary education major...
