New Year's Eve

I haven't really been up to much..just hanging with my boys.  I finished the first two buntings a couple of weeks ago.  The last lady gave birth to a daughter right as school was finishing up, so that one will have to wait.  I went to the December Coffee and we had an ornament exchange.  I made two heart ornaments as thank yous (in the smaller boxes and forgot to take a photo).  I've watched "Despicable Me 2" more times than a Mother should have to....I'll live.  I've read a little, baked a shit ton (and gave most of it away), and started re-organizing the stash.  I have a lot of trim...sickening amounts.  I need to use that in 2014.  :)  2013 was a good year for us...we got to move back to Germany.  And I got to take pictures of mushrooms.  I'm good.  :)  Happy New Year!

Just a Few Things Around Here

I finally attended a 3/2 Coffee.  They had invited me to the October Coffee and I was too chicken shit to drive in a new place.  November's was easier to find, but at night...it was dark.  But I had a good time and this was my "Welcome to the Group" gift.  It came with a 2CR pin as well....which I put on right away.
I've been trying to get caught up on crafty kits.  I finished my projects from the Little Pink Studio Boxes from August and October.  I need to find my husband's Dremel to finish September's box.  I made the necklace I bought from Andrea Singarella.  She offered up some kits from the "Sweethearts on the Home Front" Art Retreat and I bought one.  That is the first time I wire-wrapped.
I had some wreath forms that I needed to wrap. I was wrapping one of them and it had a bad spot on the yarn and I had to cut it  off and start over.  I made a pom pom with that yarn and couldn't stop.  I went a little nuts...I would still be making them if my oldest hadn't made a snide remark.   I'll make more and use up all my yarn when he's in school.  :) 
We woke up to snow on Thanksgiving.  It wasn't much, but it stayed the whole day.  It was gone by Friday.  Oh well.  We stayed home and got a crap load of Christmas shopping done online. :)
