Life and... stuff

Big news and little news of all sorts for this post. First off I started teaching the flute to a girl and her mom in my church, and I may take on another student. Another thing is Joel and I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! And I will not be posting pictures. Yet. I'm so swamped right now I can barely crochet in my very few minutes that are free... Jason's nap times are devoted to cleaning what packing clutter I can without waking him up because evenings are spent at the new house. You'll see why in my future post.... And in the meantime I need to think of a catchy title for that post haha! for now here's a cute picture of my son when we met Tim Duncan (after he left Ernie Hasse and Signature Sound :)

Pinterest Project #4: Granny Squares

I'm not entirely finished with this one, but I'm pretty proud of myself for picking up crocheting again. I followed this tutorial on how to make an easy granny square. I wanted to make a blanket for Jason, so I'm doing it so it will match his future room when we move :) I made the squares in two different sizes to add some interest to the little blanket, and when I finish it I will definitely post pictures of the finished project.
Here's my larger square with my cutie in the background eating breakfast

and the smaller square, he looks unimpressed lol

Pinterest Project #3: Magnets

I don't know where time went, but January slipped away from me. I had made this project in the beginning of the month, and it was so easy and only took a few minutes. I can't find the link, but it is on pinterest... probably on my diy board...  All I did was buy some scrapbook paper, the round magnets, (one of the stronger ones, I hate when a magnet can't hold what I what them to) and the round glass pebble things and I had some modpodge. I brushed the modpodge directly on the scrapbook paper, and put the pebbles on the modpodged paper. Then waited for that to dry and then cut around the pebbles with scissors. Then I hot glued the magnets to the back. In all it only took minutes to complete.
all the beautiful magnets 

If I could change one thing, I would have used a brighter paper

the view of the paper is blurry

My camera is terrible.
