I received my package from Lisa yesterday, and it was chock full of fabulous goodies! She must have read my mind to know that I have been craving some new, pretty yarn- look at the 3 skeins of awesome Noro! I think they are destined to become a springtime shawl for me 🙂 She also include an awesome teacup candle that she made herself! I have this burning on my counter right now, I love it! There is also yummy handmade lip balm, a package of Miss Saigon iris bulbs (so pretty!), a Knit Simple magazine, glass magnets, a pretty pink shade of nail polish, 3 Luna bars and a bag of jellybeans! The jellybeans have been poured into one of my little vintage pyrex bowls here on my desk, for snacking 🙂 Thanks for such a great swap Lisa! Click here to check out everyone elses goodies!

Wow, I haven’t used my personal blog in quite a while! I usually do family updates and whatnot on Facebook now, and I blog about my coupon deals at my other blog (singlemamasavings.blogspot.com). I’m hoping this still allows me to participate in this cool swap hosted by Shortmama! The basis is I put together a box full of my favorite things and send it to my partner, and she does the same! Sounds like a great time to me 🙂
Cute Halloween/Harvest cake the wee people and I made yesterday:
Cute Dream banner I made for my living room (my living room is painted gray with lots of red and black, and the kitchen on the other side of this banner is painted red, so it goes really well!). It looks a little wonky, I need to straighten and rehang it:
And my cute Jack! Can’t believe my monkey is 3 years old!
Ran to Target with Mom today and picked up a few great deals! There is a $4.00 coupon available online for any Hungry Hungry Hippos game (also lists a few other games), you can use it on the travel size version which only costs $4.99 at Target! Also, Glade Scented Oil candles in the pretty tins are on sale for $1.66, and many of them have $1.50 off coupons right inside! Can’t beat $0.16 for a great smelling candle! My total for this purchase was only $2.24, and $0.77 of that was tax!! Nice 🙂 The HHH game will be put aside for a Christmas present for one of the kiddos, and the candles are burning as we speak….ahh, I love the smell of clean linen candles!
Today, I got the best surprise in the mail. My leaflet has been published!!! It may have taken two years, but it feels so good to finally see it!! **Happy dance**

I participated in a swap on Craftster recently, making Dotee Dolls! Little dolls between 4-6″ tall, made from whatever materials your creativity desires! I forgot to take a picture of the ones I made before I sent them, so I can’t share those yet, but here are the ones I received from my group. I can’t wait to find a cool spot to hang them!!
I’m knitting again! It’s not much, just a dishcloth/towel (not sure which one it will be yet!) but it’s something. After this is done, I want to knit a top for Natalie. I’ve been drooling over some of the newer patterns on Ravelry, and I want to make about a dozen things all at the same time! But first things first…my dishcloth 🙂
