Legos, Legos, Legos

New legos in the shop!

Boyfriend is coming back from Pennsylvania tonight. I can't wait to go see him. I don't imagine I'll get any work done tonight, etsy or otherwise. It was only a few days but I super-missed him.

New Snowman Upcycled Crayons!

These will be making their way into my shop over the next day, along with more trees, Legos, Candy Canes and Gingerbread men. How exciting!

What I did today

15 snowflakes packaged and ready to be shipped off for a birthday party. So exciting! The tags are from PrettyGirlSupplies.

Black Friday

I don't know if it's because of Black Friday or because people are finding me more via my blog, flickr, twitter, Facebook, etc, but I've gotten a LOT of email today about my shop. I think that is so cool and each time I go "Squee!" on the inside. I was also featured in my first ever treasury HERE. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has e-mailed me/commented/etc. It's awesome to be noticed!

The Fudge and The Fire

Happy Thanksgiving! I don't have much to say today. I'm stuffed to the gills with turkey but I wanted to post some photos.

The cookies 'n cream fudge I made yesterday

Christmas Upcycled Crayons

Made these today, after I made my fudge. Will start posting to Etsy tomorrow. Happy T-Day Eve!

New Glasses and New Calendar

Picked up my new glasses at the doctor's office today. Don't think I'll ever wear them. Maybe occassionally. I much prefer my contacts.

I've got some cookies 'n cream fudge in the refrigerator firming up right now. I'm taking it to game night at Starbucks tonight. Also, check out this awesome Calendar that my favorite Chinese place gave me yesterday when I got lo mein for lunch. I love the owners.

My First Treasury

I made a treasury of Upcycled/Recycled things yesterday since that's something I'm actually quite passionate about. Low views/click so check it out HERE.

I'm tempted to buy the Mt. Dew puzzle myself. I'm a Mt. Dew addict and we've been working on a puzzle for about a month. On and off, but working on it nonetheless. It's a kitten but we think there's something wrong with it because the top border ends up being longer than the bottom border? It's kind of frustrating.

Phoebe in Wonderland

Netflix recommended the movie Phoebe in Wonderland for me a week or so ago. I added it to the instant queue without reading the synopsis, just because I liked the cover. Am I the only person who does this? Today I opened up the IMDB and saw the name "Elle Fanning". While I have an aversion to Dakota Fanning, I've found that her little sister, Elle, is less shrill and annoying than she is. This was a good movie to sit back and crochet to. Really mellow. I liked it.

Bravo, Netflix. You've actually recommended something I liked, unlike the time you recommended the snooze-fest movie about the Muslim who discovers he's really a Jewish man. Next on my list is Babies. I watched the first five minutes or so of it with the boyfriend, whilst making our own commentary, but it ended up being too much infant, not enough explosions, bacon and manstuff for him.

In bed today. I've got a wicked cold. At first I thought it was just allergies but I've got a pretty horrendous fever too. There's only so much Nyquil I can take, though, so I'm doing a little baking to keep myself awake.

A'Thriftin We Went

This morning I called my boyfriend at 8 am. Yes, on a Saturday. Let's go thrifting, I declared. "No, sleepy" No, thrifting! Back and forth, back and forth. Eventually, I won because I'm awesome and he loves me. And it's a good thing too, because we got three games in new condition for $8. Apples to Apples and In a Pickle still have the plastic wrap around the cards. Who buys games to never play them??? I also got a really ugly snowman.

We started the day with some Mc D's because I had buy one get one free coupons. I also had a coupon for a free caramel mocha drink, which I got just because I wanted to test out my new cozy pattern.

I should have bought this.

Boyfriend thinks it's cool to act like a stalker sometimes. I laugh in the face of impending abduction.
