Color me..MINE!

INSPIRATION...comes from everyplace, but I have been going to a place called PINTEREST!  I <3 pinterest!  It has a plethora of ideas that you can put together and make something happen!

So, tonight we went to COLOR ME MINE!
We had fun choosing out our bowls.  Tori was set on doing a pho bowl, but I wanted to do something smaller (and less expensive)..I chose this ramen bowl with a hole for the chopsticks!  Tori suggested I use it for a YARN bowl which is what I have been wanting to have her make one for me.....
What a good idea!!!

I can't wait to see what it will look like when it's done!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Secret Santa and Christmas!

Today is Christmas in California, and on Ravelry, I signed up to be in the Secret Santa Group....I was blessed with a friend, Annie, who lives in Visalia, Ca...funny thing, my mom grew up in Visalia!

I love all the things I got for Christmas.  I was Annie's secret Santa, and I wish I would've been able to do more, but this bag was so cute! I love love love it!  HOW cute is this???

Let's Knit Yarn Shop

OOOH I found another great yarn shop! I have been wanting to go to this store, but never get a chance..and so today, I "stole" a few minutes to check it out!
16126 S Western Ave
Gardena, CA 90247
Ok, so you sort of need to know Japanese, or at least appreciate Japanese, but it really has some great yarns. I saw this shrug, and it is very easy that they don't even have a pattern. I'm going to make it using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I love that yarn...and of course the sales girl showed me some of the yummy colors....DON'T be intimidated by the Japanese ladies there..they are all very nice and sweet! (and know enough english too).
so I bought some, and then to find out at home my computer crashed...not a good thing.. To spend money on yarn and the find out I have to spend more on a computer...when will I learn?????

Favorites on Etsy - not made by me, but you gotta check it out!!!
