attention all yarn addicts! SUPER AWESOME DEAL!
it's insane... seriously. i just got back from lucy of attic24's blog, where she discusses the BEST part of her crochet world: HER COLORS! She also gave detailed color lists and selections and in THIS post she gives a link to buy Rico Creative Cotton & the website has made a SPECIAL order pack just for Lucy's Blog, the exact colors she picked out! It's lovely! And seriously cheap too. Just don't forget to convert the Euros into American dollars if you're in the USA. I can't wait till my next paycheck comes in because I AM SO BUYING ME SOME! I feel loads of inspiration coming from this yarn and I feel like the possibilites are ENDLESS. A feeling that I NEED to feel.

so, go check it out!!!



ok, listen. now, don't go getting any ideas. i'm not promising anything. but, TWO posts in ONE week? i really feel on fire. there are flames at the computer chair. no lie. so, becky tagged me in a cute little photo-dare and being the twelve-year-old i think I am, i HAD to do it!
so CUTE!!! haha! my name written in cursive in YARN! I thought it was going to be hard, but it was easy-peasy. Can you guys see Harleykins (kitty paws in the left top corner)? He got super happy about yarn coming out and decided to get all nosey on me. He told me that yarn lights up his life.

and the GRANNY SQUARE SWAP finally got here! Everyone did such an amazing job! I will admit I have some favorites. :) but, thats normal right? I really didn't want to open some of these because they were packaged so pretty! I still don't really know what to do with them. I'd like to frame them and stick them together sort of like a gallery view. Making a blankie out of them would be neat too. I really had fun doing this swap... and getting the package that day in the mail was just like christmas when i was a kid! I was so giddy and snatched it out of the hubby's hands and ripped it open!
well, other than reading.. (i finshed wintergirls last night. AMAZING book. Totally moving and captivating. A little dark, and scary, but real. Very real things. becky, i would say read it. it's going to rattle your brain cage, thats for sure. and i've already started another book 'evermore'. Can I just say that the name Ever is really pretty! It's another fantasy teenager book, pish i don't care that i'm in my twenties and still ready YA novels. ok this has gotten out of hand! END))
... i've been doing some graphic design again. It's been a LONG time since I've used Adobe 7.0 and it's so out dated now it's insane, but I've had some cool things come out of it. For some odd reason the colors aren't showing right when I changed the file to jpeg, but these are some t-shirt designs I've made for our church youth group.
^this is the design they like! grafiti font, paint splatters, wings... i don't blame them. it's awesome. they picked out yellow as the tshirt color. it's going to be bright and AWESOME.

(again.. colors aren't right.) this is another one I made. I LOVE this one. They told me it looked like it was from the EIGHTIES. I thought that was in right now? Am I wrong? But, it doesn't look like the eighties to me. i think it would have been a cool deisgn on a white shirt.
I've still got to make the back logo for the shirt. It's going to be this HUGE paint glob with the verse Colossians 2:2-4 which says "I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident, and at rest focused on Christ, God's great mystery. All the richest treasures of wisdom and knowledge are embedded in that mystery and no where else. And we've been shown the mystery! I'm telling you this because I don't want anyone leading you off on some wild-goose chase, after other so called mysteries, or the "secrect." '
Robin shared a really cool message the other night centered around that verse that simply and plainly laid out what being a christian means, and what a tapestry of love is.
I can't wait to get finished with the shirts and get them made. I am so excited about it... and it's cool to think I will be wearing my own design!
well, I hope everyone has a LOVELY weekend. :)
