well today there was no classes, there for it was going to be very productive. however, having a sleepover last night, which was amazing and much needed to catch up with a wonderful friend, made for a later morning. waking was a slow process so i sat in bed knitting, which was wonderful, i was able to get the majority of what i was making done. once i did get my self out of bed i had a wonderful visit with a friend over lunch, which was also much needed and long over due. after my wonderful visit over lunch i got back to my room to do some daunting homework, the day was going to be productive after all, right? however, against my better judgment left my knitting sitting beside my computer, after i had realized that i had gotten as far as i could with my homework i quickly took to my knitting. i am now able to say i completed my very first knitting project! i am pretty excited, i have many different projects on the go both with knitting and crocheting but i have actually completed one. there are a couple flaws but i try to over look those, it is my first project after all. what is my first knitting project you may ask, well it is a french press cozy! i love my coffee! as one of my friends said, " wow that thing is your baby, you are making clothes for it now!"

so to sum up! today was productive just not the way i imagined it to be. i have a new found love for knitting and crocheting. more importantly my friends are just the best! they are a huge blessing in my life and i thank God for them daily.
thanks for stopping by.
be blessed!

glad to be back

last week was just so so crazy with papers, reading and studying. i should really be working ahead now but, there is no fun in that. during class today i just wanted to get back to my room and scrap. this weekend, at my boyfriend, we set up all the Christmas decorations and tree, this got me in a Christmas mood. i have been listening to Christmas music all afternoon and going through my all my 'Christmasy' scrapping stuff. so i have been working on Christmas cards.

{oh, Christmas tree}

so as you are preparing for Christmas enjoy the season and try not to get to caught up in all the details. relax and enjoy! there also happens to be another birthday in my dorm this month, so i made up another card. i am very pleased at how it turned out.

after a very wonderful and productive scrappy day i leave you with this,
'He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts to grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.' -Ephesians 4:16

thanks for looking
be blessed this week
