|A blog to post my craft projects and to blab about what's going on in my life...|
arg, i wanted to go to joann's to pick up some stuff, but i guess im going to have to do it tomorrow. I didn't have time, i had to pick up my brother from school. ill go tomorrow in the weeeeee morning if i can get up!
here it is! my second beanie ive ever made, i had no pattern to follow, made it up myself from information that i gathered. its a little tight, i could've casted on about 10 - 15 more stitches to be more comfortable, and have made fewer rows. not bad i guess. what do ya think? the next one for sure will be much better, now that i know what to improve on.

wow, time just fly doesn't it? Even if you aren't having fun. Haven't been doing much, just looking at my major and such, im still very interested in dentistry, so I need to finish up the classes at my current school and then transfer. Maybe another two semesters. God, im slow, I just seems like im taking my time, haha.
here are some of the embroidery designs i have done in the past couple days since Ive been sick, and then there are a few that are older, i just wanted to show them off. im very proud of myself,
my body hurts SO much, i feel like i have that bodyache when you have the flu, and im not even sick, but i didn't get much sleep, i kept waking up... maybe im pms-ing...hmmm
did a little fixer upper on this blog page, notice anything different? i changed the title design, thought it was a little too kooky for me, this is much better. didn't do any craft project today, tomorrow ill have the whole morning to myself, my bf is going with his dad somewhere. so im taking advantage of the time since i USUALLY spend 99.9% of my spare time with my bf, its really sad that im happy about spending the time alone, im pathetic... anyways i will probably continue working on making a journal, ive already took an old book and cut out the bookcover front and back and started gluing pink fabric to the front. I need to let it dry, in the morning i finish decorating the cover. i hope it turns out good.
so yeah, i had to go to jury duty today at 11am, i got to the courthouse and waited outside the courtROOM with my group. I was really nervous about what kind of questions they were going to ask when we sit down in the jury box. 20-25 mintues went by and we still weren't inside the courtroom, then a lady came out and announced they weren't going to have a courtroom session so we were dismissed to go home, i was SO relieved and at the same time happy we didn't have to do anything! i was stressing out a little bit the night before because i knew they wanted to ask us questions aloud and im not a very good public speaker even if IS in a courtroom with totally strangers. i totally get nervous, usually when its my turn to talk in front of people, i think to myself before i begin speaking, "im going to f*** up". i pretty much try my best to avoid speaking aloud, i freak out too much even if its the smallest thing that has to do with speaking up. but i wish with ALL Of my heart that i was good at that. i envy all people who can talk in front of people without getting nervous but at the same time think how lucky they are to have such talent. i wish...
Yesterday(01-04-05) i found out i had jury duty, and i REALLY thought I was going to get off the hook! nope....i had to go, they put about 100 people in an assembly room and called out names in groups. I was in the last group they called to go to a courtroom not to mention the last person on that group list. My group didnt get assigned until about 3pm, and i was summoned to go to the assembly room at 7:45am! NOW that was a LOOOONNNGGG and boring wait. I should've brought a book to read, but I didn't. I remember that night before about bringing some stuff to knit, but when i read there "what to bring and what NOT to bring" on there list of "what not bring" i couldn't bring knitting needles. it sucked a buttload. ....actually it was TOO boring because they let us watch some DVD on there big screen tv. as long as i waited, i watched THREE: Pirates of the Caribbean, Liar Liar (of course), and Con-Air. I had a field day with those... time went by faster with them, thank god. well i better get to bed becaue I and the other people in my group have to be back at the courthouse at 11am sharp, but I am bringing a book for sure this time, cuz i know there is going to be a LOT of waiting around.
It sucks I didn't post the last couple of days, i've been real lazy, ive been lazy about everything and I think i know why...junk food, i really hate myself for it. why cant i just say no, and i think im never going back to KFC to eat their chicken, I felt sick once I found out by watching a video online what they do to these chickens when they are alive, people slam the chicken againist walls and they crush them with there feet, I felt totally sick. Other videos I check out where Chinese cook cats as food. I almost had a heartattack from watching it. Yesterday i was browsing the web and came across a personal blog, I saw a button link that read: Iams Cruelty (a PETA supported site). I click on it and it was so sad what Iams Laboratories do to the dogs there, neglected isolated animals, there muscles on there thighs have been removed in chunks for studying purposes with no veterinary care, just so they can test there food products. Check out this site, don't forget to donate: http://www.iamscruelty.com/
Well last night(now that its consider morning) my bf got me this he ordered it from online...
-Lose 20 pounds (I'm 5'3 and presently weight 135.5) already dropped 2 pounds (happy).
starting tomorrow I am going to eat better, me and my bf just eat out WAY TOO MUCH. I discussed it with him and we both agree. So I guess this blog will be a very cool recorder in addition to everything else that is good and bad in my life. anyways, today to kick off our new eating habit we went to get subway(which i REALLY wanted), deeeeeeeeeeeelicious, but i know my bf with not be too keen in adding subway to our "new" menu, he doesn't like it very much.... oh well! too bad for HIM! lol
well, i just started knitting about a month ago. the first thing I knitted was a scarf, but I never finished it, i thought the colors were so ugly and i did a TON of mistakes in it ( that one was a practice one), so i decided, now that i learned to do a garter stitch, how about making a scarf for my friend michelle? I went to joanns and bought two skiens of (the LAST TWO in STOCK!) i think it was baby worsted yarn, i would know, but i lost the tag. the colors are so pretty, they're mixed with light pink, light purple and white. she LOVED the scarf i was SO happy. :) anyways with the leftover yarn, im making a thin scarf for myself, can't hurt... ya know? tee hee... and then im making a red wine color scarf for my older brother (which is on hold for now). here they are:
Okay, I got this all set now, layout almost fixed the way I wanted it. I need to tweek it a bit and thats it. Well Im totally excited about tonight, my BF is coming over for a christmas dinner and he got a present for me! I told him not to because I know he doesnt have a lot of money right now. I wonder what he got me?!? oooohhh, i can't wait....
whoo HOO! i can't wait, my mom is taking me and my sis out to get our hair done. i wonder what my boyfriend will think when he sees me. im definetly gonna get my hair straighten, ive never done that before, so its going to be rad. Im looking forward to it! ha HA!
Yep...my first one. I thought it was kinda cool to call my blog "craftopia" because l couldn't really call my blog "knittin'..." or "scrapin'...." or "jewelry makin'..." cuz i just dont do one craft, I like experimenting different crafts and trying them out. so "craftopia" seemed like the perfect name...LOL! god, i am so happy no one had that name!!!! i feel like a lucky girl today!!!! :)
