Yarn and Caffeine

It doesn't get better than this. We got home from taking my son to the doctor and this wonderful package was sitting on my doorstep. My Caffeine Addict Swap partner on Ravelry really spoiled me. I love Lorna's Laces and I don't have either of these colorways. Yarny Goodness. And the coffee - can you read the label? It is Knitch coffee. The package says "Our friends at Java Vino created this special roast to support our desire to STAY UP LATE AND KNIT! Whatever you're working on, Knitch roast will help you finish that last row". How cool is this? you know, as a scrapbooker - I will be scrapping that label. I love the pattern, the dark chocolate (my downfall) and the note cards. I also have to say thanks from my Tattoo - he loves his chew toy. My son was so excited that my swap partner thought of our pouch. And the candy I will share with my guys. The mug is beautiful! It will probably stay in my scrapbook/knitting room. Thanks so much partner - this was wonderful. Oh, and the ecard sent last week was too funny.

ScrapPink Week

Hi there. The LSS here in town, Memories a la Mode, is hosting a ScrapPink week in conjunction with Scrapbooks ETC. I was asked to organize this week long event. We are selling pink ribbons for $1 in honor of or in memory of someone who has been touched by cancer. We are having a class every night during the week, a portion of each participants class fee will be donated to the Susan G. Kormen foundation. All of this ends with an all day crop on September 29, again, a donation is being made for each participant. I am teaching a Basic Grey layout class. One of the layouts is here for you to look at. Thanks for looking.

Bad Blogger

I know, I know, it has been awhile since I have posted on my blog. The only excuse I have - Life. We are in full swing of school and all the activities that this entails. S has piano lessons, band, Men's Ensemble, play practice, and the gazillion clubs he belongs to. M has soccer and guitar lessons and his garage band practices. These sometimes require ear plugs. LOL. I have been knitting and scrapping as much as I can. You can tell by the date on this layout that I am behind on my scrapping. Tonight M got popped in the eye with a baseball when he and some neighbor boys were playing. He is going to have a real shiner. (Note to self: Take a picture). He is so upset that he is going to have a black eye on Saturday when we host the U of K vs U of L football game party. Go University of Louisville!

My caffeine lover's swap package will be in the mail in the morning. Hope my swap partner enjoys it - yummy bourbon flavored coffee.
