A place for my knitting ramblings ...


A few of my favorite things

I'm no Oprah, but I thought I'd pass along a few of my favorite things this holiday season ...

You are probably getting sick of hearing about Detroit, but I just wanted to share a photo of the gigantic Christmas ornament outside of the new casino. I am NOT into casinos at all, but I am enjoying this holiday display. Pretty, no?

Matt & I found these fun (and potentially offensive) Christmas cards at the local Etsy craft show. They will be in the mail for special friends for Christmas 2008, since we had already sent out this year's cards.

I LOVE this paper garland from Kiddley. I won't get around to making it this year, but maybe in time for next Christmas. It is so simple, yet so charming! Love, love, love it!

YarnaholicTracyB brought some hilarious gift tags to my attention, but I also discovered some really cute ones today that are perfect for knitters. I, of course, did not complete any hand knit gifts this year. But these lovely gift tags will adorn my packages when I do get around to completing some hand knit gifts.

i made it for you

I love taking pictures when it is snowing outside. It just looks so fun & magical.

Last Saturday, we got a ton of snow here and it was to my great delight. I really think it is possible - we may have a White Christmas. YAY!
