My new book

Do you ever wonder what in the world am I going to do? I have been doing that lately about going back to school. I am 31 years old and I have been a stay-at-home mom for the last 5 years. I have so enjoyed it immensely!!! Now as my kids are getting older, I didn't know if I wanted to do nursing or keep staying home. My husband is laid off and we struggle sometimes. I got so frustrated today when talking to the school counselors because I thought I could get in the Fall of 2009, but it seems every year they add on something new and I wasn't going to get in till 2010. I just can't wait that long!! Then I discovered that I already qualify for the LPN program and later on I can finish the RN program . That will only take an additional year. I know I am rambling but I just wanted to share.

Now here is the new book I bought on Japanese Amigurumi. I love this book and it is my first book on amigurumi. Now I am addicted, and can't wait to buy more. My problem is I am also learning to crochet and I can't make anything yet, until I learn the art of crocheting. I hope to get started in a week or so and I will definitely share my journey with you.

Now check out the photos from my book. They are so adorable and I plan to make one of each or even two.

Well I better go, I am suppose to be asleep and I have to get up in 1 hour to take the kids to school.

P.S. My kids really loved this book and wants one of each. They are as excited as me. This is a great book and it is written in English.

God Bless,

As Promised

Hi everyone, as promised I want to share with you a wonderful artist by the name of Hilary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls. I found her blog about a year ago and could not wait to buy something from her. Money has been tight but finally I was able to buy some really great things from her. Check her out, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Here is two pattern books I bought. Aren't they absolutely adorable.

These are the hand sewing pattern cards. You can buy one for $5.00 or the whole bunch for $15.00. So you will be getting one for free.

These are her stichettes. Each one comes with a iron on pattern and a postcard of the finished product.

I just wanted to show you guys what I got and as soon as I get done with them, I will have to show you. My kids loved everything I got and they can't wait for Mommy to make them one of each. Well I just wanted to share and hope to be back soon with more goodies to show off.

God Bless,
