Yes -- I know it is not really a word.
I've been a little busy this week at work (and at home) on my crafts.
At work this week:
I finished the snowman for the Winter Amigurumi swap that will be assigned partners next week.
I made the bunny for the swap I am angeling.
I started some strawberries for the private food swap I am doing. I need to do more than just the strawberries, so I am searching for other food items that I have the correct colors for - I might end up with an eggplant, because I DO have purple.
At home:
I finally made the crochet hook roll I have been thinking about for over a few weeks. I made room for all the hooks I have, the 1" x 6" ruler and all of my hook markers as well as SEVERAL stitch markers. - I will post some picks to flickr as soon as I actually TAKE the pictures of it.

On a side note at home:
We have put the tree up - FINALLY - this week. With the baby running around, any ornament not up at least three feet on the tree gets taken off on a regular basis. I am hoping that we are able to FIND all of the ornaments that we hung on the lower part of the tree when it is time take down the tree and out the ornaments away. Luckily it was only the M&M ornaments that came on M&M tubes in years past.

I am currently looking to complete the set of fisher price & milton bradly ornaments that I found over the past few years. These are the ones where the raindeer play twister & operation. There are the monopoly train pieces. The little people have a santa's workshop & a nativity scene. As well as the "old school style" little people on a sled.

I believe there were a few different sets, and I did photo the back of the boxes that I have, where is says "collect them all" so that I can mark the ones I DO HAVE. Hopefully I will be able to locate the rest at some point. These are the main ornaments we put on the tree this year.

another crappy swap coordinator

I had joined this swap. Signup deadline was November 30th. Partners had not been assigned yet today & the coordinator has not been on swap-bot since November 25th.
The swap was based on the Six Word Memoirs at Smith Magazine.

Since I have dropped the swap due to lack of coordinator participation... I am just going to post them here. The swap guidelines were to "write ten six-word memoirs pertaining to yourself, your life, fears, lost loves, whatever you want and feel like."

So here are my 10x6:
1. Texas born and raised. Colorado confined.
2. Only child. Married third of six.
3. Insomnia. Sleep is an elusive thing.
4. Two beautiful girls. want a boy....
5. Family of nuts. We don't mind.
6. Craft! Craft! I like to craft!
7. Yarn and hook, I crochet away.
8. Thanksgiving dinner cook. Dish washer too.
9. Ramen Noodles.... Hamburger Helper.... Cheap food.
10. Don't blame me. I voted McCain.
