"The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of art made by me. The only catch, of course: as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own blog as well."
After I see your comments email me your address and when I get a chance I'll mail your goodie off. It may be beadwork, it may be a knitted item, it may be a sewn item, it may be a rubber stamped item... I just don't know yet! If you're in the knitting group here in Manchvegas, you'll get it hand delivered next Wednesday.
SO.........who's the first 5 to comment??
I'll be posting some pictures tomorrow of my fingerless mitts and my sock blocker keychain I worked on at "knitting practice" the other night.

|You Are Pumpkin Pie|
Even when people are full - they make room for you.
Good or bad, your smell is most likely to arouse a man.
This is a picture of Jacob holding his candy ready with other tiger cubs (who I cropped out, not my kids so I don't wanna show them with out permission) to hand out the candy! He did a great job and did not complain ONCE during the long walk (for little legs).

My ratings on the day.... a 10 baby!!
We went to a fellow knitters house, Heather, and celebrated Thanksgiving with her and her husband Jim, 2 children, her mother and brother and sister! The food was very good, or as a NH person might say, "WICKED AWESOME" (I'm catching on here)
Later in the evening, her husbands family started showing up, and bless little Nathan, He just went up and hugged Jim's Father. It was the most precious thing! And it warmed my heart and made me feel good that he just picked him up and loved him back, as if he was one of his own grandchildren. I love people like that!!! But that moment also made me reaaalllllly miss my family! This is the first Thanksgiving I've ever missed with my family. But I think I did well all day and just knowing the boys had a BLAST made the day even better.
So a BIG BLOGGY THANK YOU to Heather and Jim! You guys made our Thanksgiving wonderful and made us feel so welcome!! We appreciate your hospitality! ( and the left over turkey sammich today was "wicked awesome" tee hee)

Today is the date I got laid off last year from my job of 9 years.
I am happy!
I can't believe I made it a whole year as a stay at home mom and only two emergency room visits!! OK OK one was not my kid but my nephew. He cracked his head on the boys bunk bed and had to go get stitches. And then Nathan's visit to the ER for his broken leg. So I think I'm doing pretty good! LOL
Gina's 3rd podcast is online! Check it out. She references my southern accent LOL!!
No pictures to show today.
Happy Birthday HEATHER!!! Have fun at Disneyland.

Below are a pair of slippers I knitted up. Started last night and finished today.. Nathan's little shoe is beside it so you can see how it felted. I think they are too cute! You had to use 3 strands to knit with and I didn't have enough of one color for the tops of the slippers so I used three! I love how it came out! :)

Here is my Entrelac Pillow Case....well...the top of it. I have to make the rest of the pillow sometime. I want to try the Lady Elenor out of Scarf Style. Take a look at this blog and you'll see this gal did an AMAZING JOB!!! I'm so jealous! I showed it to my mother and I may be busy making two!!! Might just have to put the socks away for awhile. :) Above are some coasters I made for some friends for their birthday. Hope they like them. I have one I keep at my computer desk and use. It's nice.
And this is a coin purse that I made. Those are my neices and nephew. It's going to be a Christmas gift for my Sister in law... Hope she doesn't read this blog entry... don't even know if she knows I blog.
I've been meaning to post this stuff since Friday, but the boys have been playing games online a lot. Nathan has even figured out how to finally use the mouse!!
