When I catch up


This weekend in Tempe was the Festival of Arts or a huge art fair that had our little shoe store so busy and me still aching from helping all the costumers. Anyways here is me catching up on reverb promps.

December 6th- Make
December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

The last thing I made (and finished) was a hat for my friend Ashlee. I used yarn and a crochet hook from my ever growing collection to make her this hat in navy. I hope she loves it and it keeps her hairs warm. I would love to be able to sit and crochet some more and that is what I will be doing once school is over and I can do it free of guilt. I cannot wait to wrap up presents and make Christmastime beautiful and I would love to sew up some projects and craft some decorations. Also Ross' mom is the most expert decorator and crafter I know and I would be sooo happy if I could spend some craft time with her too. She knows how to KNIT!

December 5th- Let Go
Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

I feel so bad about this one But I feel like I let go of friends and in particular a friend f mine named Liz. Once I switched jobs and moved to Tempe I didn't see her. It may have been because I couldn't drive or because I didn't try enough but I haven't seen her since March and she was the girl I told everything to. I hope she can come to my birthday party and we can figure out a way to work our lives back together so we can still live our lives but see each other.

December 4th- Wonder
How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)

This may sound silly but I guess I wondered with the kitties. I have school and I have work and I spend a lot of my time on that and in those aspects I am very cynical or responsible and I can't wonder but I pick up the kittie here and they are my kitty babies and I play wit them and ponder what they think. I pretend when school gets really stressful how they would handle it if we switched places. I make up lives for them in my head when they sit and rest with me. I know that they can't really understand who I am but I know they love me now too and I'm mommy for them now.

I am still so jealous of girls who can knit, I need to learn how to do that!!! And I'm sorry about your friend, that's hard, at least there's no bad blood you have to deal with first...email? facebook? gotta be a way to keep your LDR with her fresh! :) And so cute about the kittens, I often think what animals think too so no shame in you writing it down, it's adorable!
