Going to try more...

I'm going to try more posts.  Maybe a weekly post?  I'm not sure if anyone reads this or not, but hey.  Is what it is.

I've got several things going craft wise.  I'm starting a surprise for someone...and that's about all I can say about that.  Crud...that's anticlimactic.

I was asked by not 1, but 2 people at work to make something for them!  I'm so honored!  I am making a Minion for Christine's son and I'm making a 3 eyed monster for Lili's nephew who is suffering from cancer right now.  Lili just did a fundraiser and is going to see him over Easter weekend and loved the one I already made, so I'm so excited to make one for her to give to him!

Speaking of Easter weekend, I can't wait because Alex is coming to town from Germany!  I really hope she can just stay with us, but we'll see.  But she'll be here on Good Friday, just a little over a week to go!  I'm so excited to see her, she's someone I met and volunteered with at LeakyCon in 2012 and I've kept up with her...and she gets me and the nerdy Harry loving person that I am!  We can talk nerdy stuff like that, she's the same age as me....and it's so awesome to learn about the different stuff from across the pond and all.

Anywho, I have to get going on swatching that, uh, special gift....and I have to get going on that monster for next weekend.  Hmm....too much going on at home, painting, straightening, cleaning, unpacking (still).....and getting a garden started.  We're going a little huge with our first garden...way I look at it, even if it all doesn't take, in the long run, if only some of it takes, we'll still be saving money with buying some less produce....but here's to hoping that more will take than less!
