Wow! North Carolina was awesome. So I buy a new camera with all of the intentions of taking tons of pictures, but what do I do? I take only 3 the whole time I'm there. This is a view from the living room... I should have taken a picture of Cole with his pirate T-shirt on, but I think he might have gotten half of his dinner on it in 5 minutes, so at least it served its purpose.

Way fun.

But also I wanted to say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! to my momo and I can show you what I made for her. Subversive Cross Stitch is a book by Julie Jackson and my mom and sister picked it out for me because they know how much I enjoy swearing and crafting and this book lets you do both. Check out her website, It's guaranteed to crack you up. But back to the point, I really wanted to get a "Mom" tattoo for the one who brought me into this earth, but it kills her a little with each one I get. This is just as permanent and now she can enjoy it every day.


And now for a Beauty original. Between the sunburn that I got on vacation and all of the drinking (My liver HATES me) I get home and I think I want to make something fast and useful. How about a camera cozy!! With a skull on it of course. I want to felt it but it is just 50 rows of stockinette stitch in some leftover yarn I had. I pulled the button off of an old shirt and now my new camera is nice and safe.

It's a good little credit card/smokes holder too, I just have to add a strap.

But I think that will be it for this post. The one thing I wanted to get done while on vacation was my other knitted sock. Good thing I will have more time off coming up!!!!
Oh wait, you have to watch this....
I need to get my drink on. More to come!

First time

Ok here goes, my debut on the world wide web. Not only do I have a blog now, I also have a digital camera. I'm pretty crafty and for my first post I have pictures to add too!! So what could possibly be good about my best friend having a kid? I get to be an AWESOME aunt!!! This can get you in trouble, but also it poses plenty of opportunities to crack yourself up! So for my first crafty idea, homemade T-Shirts! Just premade shirts and Iron-On letters. There are tons of colors and styles of letters to choose from. I have given Cole plenty of T-Shirts, all funny, some "inappropriate" but these are the first ones I have made.

Hysterical huh? "IM A PIRATE" is just funny. Now imagine a 1 year old just wearing it for the heck of it! And "DUNDER MIFFLIN"? Well if you have to ask, it's from the greatest show on television The Office.

This one is for Veggie Liz. I'm not going to even explain it, long story,but it might just be an inspiration for you to get crafty or just crack up you and your friends.

And now for vacation!! With Erin Bearin and Cole and a bunch of partiers in NC! More crafty posts to come!!
