Crochet bouquet

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I am loving pinterest right now. I am learning so many little tricks and DIY ideas and I am enjoying every second of it! My latest conquest has been little crochet roses.

It was super easy! I just chained 20-30 stitches (depending on how big the flower would be) and then double crocheted all the way across and then squished it all together. Slapped the rose onto some green pipe cleaners and voila! To add a little more whimsy I grabbed a blue knitted block I'd done a while back and added it to the inside of the vase for the water!

I gave these to ricky's sisters for their birthday. Unlike real flowers these never have to be watered and will never die!

Sometimes I have to pause and remember to appreciate the beauty in my life. All the little things that weigh me down during the day are just that...... Little things.

As you can see, Bruce's favorite place to lay is in a pile of (previously) folded clean laundry...... Good thing he is squeaky clean otherwise he'd be in big trouble right now!!

Take Flight!

A couple days ago my company took us all to an undisclosed location for a re-branding presentation/celebration. Turns out the location was the Museum of Flight. I've never been but always wanted to and I got to go for free while I was being paid to "work" !! The only down side is we had guided tours around the main building and unfortunately our elderly tour guide wanted to share an hour of personal stories and why certain planes were her favorites. So I think I'll want to go back and actually explore.... But I got some really cool photos with my trusty iPhone!

This year, Ricky and I went to a Halloween party as Lucy & Ricky Ricardo! For limited resources I think we did really good! We also dressed Bruce Wayne up as a hot dog ..... Which he did NOT appreciate!!
