Now I am on the lookout for the perfect picture frames.
I think I really try to figure out triggers, and maybe electrical storms make him more likely to have one. I might be reaching. He definitely has to remain calm, because stress is one of those triggers.
I will remain positive that this is not the beginning of...well...I don't want to talk about that. I will just give him extra love and hope Murph doesn't get too jealous.

what a mess. my hands were cramping from this foreign way I had to hold the yarn. the stitches are uneven. the yarn is tangled. the book does not explain what a turning stitch really is and it keeps saying to turn my work! what does it all mean? all I want in life is to make a granny square and/or pretty flower like all my fellow crafty friends. why does this elude me? how will I ever make RVA Summer Camp's cute little rug if I can't accomplish crochet?

Angie made the cutest hangers.
I was just thinking of this hanger project my grandma and I used to do in the '70's (yup, that is not a typo...yikes) we used three strands of this polyester type wool, I have not seen this stuff forever, and kind of braided it on to the hanger. I spent a lot of time doing this to every hanger I could find in the house!
This project is exactly what we used to do, but uses old plastic bags instead...AWESOME!!

I am vegetarian mostly, but do still eat some fish and seafood, eggs, milk, cheese. But after reading this book, I'm pretty sure my only option is to become vegan. The chapter where they have quotes and stories from slaughterhouse workers is enough to give me nightmares for eternity. I won't even repeat them because I feel everyone should choose on their own to read about such horrors.

I have been eying these on etsy and in certain stores...yay I'm going to make my own with some of the t-shirts I have grown out of since not smoking. I'm not giving up on the fact that I'll never fit into them again I'm just saying I will want to buy new ones when I reach that goal, so until then I can hide some rolls with this gorgeous scarf! LMAO

I feel like I want to add more to it...ribbon, buttons, sparkle...lol. I wonder why I have such a hard time with simplicity? I want my little journal to be done...but I cannot stop thinking of things to add to it. Good grief.
I ran out of tape runner glue half way thru my project so I switched to ModgePodge...my fabric is a little lumpy. Maybe some ribbon will squish the bubbles out! lol
Today some embroidery! YAY!!!

Oh, oh I just love these pots!!! How great and gorgeous and my mind is flying...I wonder if anyone else in this house hold will agree that we have to turn all our existing pots into these gorgeous polka dot cuties! I'll just do it and see if anyone notices...;) Pink and green???? YES

Oh, this might be the answer to my non-crochet ways!! AWESOME PRETTY!!
This is so cute! Using a shower curtain...such an awesome idea.
Niverville Fair is over for another year...whew! I find it so tiring with all the kids...hats off to all with children. They all had fun but it wasn't for as long as I would have liked due to some kids needed a nap, etc. (this is me and our friend Jack)
G and I managed to give one of the town counsellors a hard time at the concert about how our town needs to be more business friendly, blah, blah, on and on. I think at the end of the chat he might of suggested we run for office...a polite way to tell us to shut up I think! LOL
I have a wee headache from the festivities but all and all had a great time this year.

I seriously need to learn how to crochet! I see blankets like this and I just HAVE to make...except for the fact that I don't crochet. How is it that I learned how to knit, embroider, sew, crosstitch, etc but didn't ever learn to crochet? My grandma brown taught me all the above but was unable to teach me to use that pesky hook because she is ambidextrous...and she crochets as a lefty and we could never translate it to right handedness for me...perhaps we should have used a mirror??? I think I will suggest that next time I see grandma, it could work right??

So super excited! Got my supply list for RVA Summer Camp !!!http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/05/summer-camp-registration-rva-update.html
I cannot stop thinking of all the cute projects and how some of them would be so super cute for Summer Solstice party!! Especially the pup tent! I think the kids (and sheepies) would get a kick out of it! Ok, I would like the tent too! It reminds me of backyard summer sleepovers when I was little with my girlfriends! AHHHHH memories!

Holy Cupcake!!! This is the best idea EVER!!! I could eat these driving the car, walking the dogs, reading in bed...the possibilities are endless! Oh, I guess I could make them for other people too...LOL!

Wow, I was really disappointed. I loved all the outfits and luxury but I cannot get over the fit Samantha has in a market. All I could think of was how horribly disrespectful to be in another country and blatantly disregard their laws and customs. This scene has clouded all the others and really made me dislike the movie. *sigh*

This DIY is for little girls...hmmmm I think that they would look AWESOME in my 40 year old hair! Besides, I love ribbon and I have a whack of it and now I know what to do with it!

This is BEAUTIFUL. It is interesting that I imagine everyone, all the women in my life wearing this, except me. Why is it I find such beauty in everyone else EXCEPT me? It is frustrating. I'm sure that no one else looks at me and judges like I do to myself. I would like to someday get to the point where I could get this for myself and wear it proudly!
It would help if I hadn't gone out on Saturday night and drank too much! I am still feeling the effects of the alcohol and the over-eating this morning...it's Monday! I am afraid to get on the scale for my WII fitness and see exactly what damage has been done.
Well...I will soldier on...

What a super fun idea...and a GREAT way to do something about the piles of magazines I have going on!
So, I will keep up my relationship with my mat. And force a smile in the morning and keep at it. I have to gain strength in both body and mind. I want to feel beautiful again.
