Looooong Day

A toddler and chocolate soy pudding should not be left unattended. Oops. Let me just say that I am glad our new couches are dark brown. I am still finding globs of pudding in the craziest places. And I only left him for maybe a few minutes in the kitchen while I threw in a load of laundry...

I got some promising books at the library like New Knits On The Block and Speed Knitting to give me some good ideas for a possible home-made Christmas this year. Even if I don't go 100% homemade, I am having fun toying with the idea. I am wondering how I can get everyone in blogland involved to compile the fabulous tips you all probably have. But right now, me so sleepy.

And if you're thinking what is up with all the giveaways and reviews and such this week, it's wrap up time for my summer of giveaways and I've got a few more fun surprises ahead.

First, I am going to hit the hay. Night!

  8. My favorite gifts are homemade ones. Unfortunately, the only crafty thing I can do is crochet doilies, which is only good for about one holiday, so I'd love to see what you come up with!

  10. What a great idea for a homemade Christmas! I actually want to learn to knit. My Nana knits and it is one of those things I want her to pass down to me. I love the bkankets she has made me... and the scarves. I have saved everything to pass down. It is so special! Good for you... keep us updated on your progress!!
