Cold, Comfty and Creative...

Pretty snazzy title for this post, eh?!It's been SO cold the past couple of days!! We've been getting freezing weather and snow too!! I'm ready for the summer..keep looking at the pics of Hawaii and I SO wish I was there right now. We had our last dump of snow today, of course according to the weatherman and that it should be getting warmer the next couple of days. Which is good because I'm ready for it to go away!! It does look SO pretty with all the white on the ground but I'm ready for it to go!!

Well because it has been so cold all I've been really doing is staying home and keeping warm inside. Watching some tv and doing tons of scrapping. Which is always fun!! I'm loving it, have my iPod on in my ears and sitting on the floor and just playing with all my scrappy stuff. Especially now that it is all nice and organized!! Have been wanting to shar some of my latest pages, which I am lovin' have been doing quite a bit of wedding pages especially with some of my fave pics..like the kissing one...tell me what you think...









Jared teased me for doing a page about the puppy we almost got. I had to, he's too cute and I was wanting to use the new KI pet line..love it!! Besides scrapping I've been doing some knitting. Getting back into it again. I first learned how to crochet and now I'm doing some more knitting now. It's fun!! I usually do it infront of the tv while watching something!! I started making a scarf over the winter break, this chunky and really pretty one I saw in Martha Stewart's Holiday magazine, and I wanted to make one so, my mom helped me. I'm good with the kknitting part but, starting off and ending, still not so much. So my mom helped me to finish it off on Sunday and I really love how it turned out, and it's so warm too.




Not the greatest pic of me but, we're focusing on the scarf!! Now I'm working on a tuque to go with the scarf. It's a litle bit harder 'cause you have to count and follow instructions at least with the scarf you just go!! But so far not too bad!! And when I'm done I will do a fashion shoot and model them for you!!

In the pic you can see a little bit of my organized bookshelf with all my scrappy stuff!! I'm just lovin' all the organization!! Anyways countdown to the weekend..we're getting there..I know it's only Tuesday but a least tomorrow is Wednesday!! Have a super week everybody!!

I love your pages. The kiss one is my favorite. I've always wanted to learn to knit. Someone tried to teach me once results were not so great. I think I'll stick to scrapping.

Love all of your pages, but the Kiss and puppy ones are my faves! That scarf looks so cozy and warm! Great job! I knit too... but nothing too complicated. I still have no idea how to crochet though.

I'm so jazzed for the journal!! And thanks for all of your sweet posts on my blog :)
