it's Tuesday you say? Really? Oops!

This week was a crazy one, and as you can tell I missed my weekly update. Sorry about that folks, I'm not even sure what I did that made the week just fly on by, but whooosh, there it went.
I was supply shopping for an order of covered keepsake tins my stepmother asked for, and finishing two of the ten of them.

Of course while I was at Michaels I had to buy another skein or three of yarn. I knit my first little stuffed friend. A tiny turtle, green with purple stripes. I found this pattern free online!
Sunday the man and I went to the mall to try to find a video game we've been wanting for a while and finally decided our budget would allow us to grab it. Well they didn't have it, so we went out to eat instead, but tiny turtle had a great time out, we chronicled his adventures with our cell cameras and I made a lil collage....

Yesterday I knit up all the pieces needed to make him a lil sister, today I need to finish stitching and stuffing her.
I also spent a lot of time with the man's mom this weekend. We went to their church tricky tray Friday night, I won a watch and a dozen roses and got to meet a few more neighbors, we grabbed a few slices first, it was a general good time had by all.
Then Saturday was the next town over from ours' garage sale day. Bright and early we went out looking for some furniture for my hopefully will become my craft room one day/spare room. I got a nice solid wood table and two huge solid wood cabinets on the cheap. And I got myself some sunburn for free, since I forgot to cover my lily white arms with the spf50 sunscreen that was on the coffee table!

I'm also very excited to have met Tracy aka Popcornfeet on etsy, aka the crazy suburban mom on blogger. She had posted in the etsy forums, a call for fun items under $10 and a feature on her blog for the one she bought. Lucky for me she loved my retro green flower barrette! Which she photographed and mentioned on her blog with linky's and all the fun stuff! I'm the jerk who didn't post here right away directing some traffic her way, so go over there now and check out her awesome blog!
Speaking of Tracy and her awesome blog... she was awarded a pretty nifty award, which *jumping with glee* she has passed along my way!
Thank you so much Tracy for my very first blog award!
