new friends, blogs, and the bug.

This weekend was a busy, but good one. Family from Escondido were staying with me because they were playing in the football tournament. Saturday night I went to a Halloween party and had a blast! It was fun to reconnect with old friends. Hopefully I will be a better friend and keep the connection. Sunday was a full day - 8 hours of childcare, but it was good. I made a new friend! There is this really neat lady who works for me, and we became friends this weekend. I am really excited about this friendship, I have always wanted to be friends with people outside of my generation, but not because they are a friend's parent or parent's friend....but I connection all my own, and now I have it! A cousin of mine met an elderly man at a bookstore and they became friends. I always thought that was really cool.

I am addicted to blogs - friend's blogs, design blogs, home blogs, craft blogs, and cooking blogs.

Today's challenge was to do something creative and I couldn't think of anything, so I started searching craft blogs. I think I found my Christmas gift for this year...It looked pretty cute on one of the blogs, but I will have to play around with it and see if I like it. I also went to Hancock Fabrics to look around and get inspired....I am definitely inspired, I just don't know exactly how to do everything I want to.

If my mom doesn't come home soon, I am turning her office into a craft room....I've already designed it. When I have my own place, and not just renting with friends, I am totally going to have another room for crafting, and it will also have a little reading nook too. School is just getting in the way...I wish I could just spend the days reading, gardening, crafting, and cooking :)

I thought this was so neat. I love mixed media art. Ah, there is so much I want to play with. Happy November!
