Today is my birthday! I am turning 24! It is so weird to me. Kevin made me a sign out of post its and put ribbons on the door and gave me my gift and a muffin. All of it was very sweet.
We're gonna have cake tonight but other than that I don't really have a plan. Keeping it low-key. Plus we don't know anyone down here so it makes it pretty easy to be low key. haha.
Anyway I crafted this week. I made a bunch of little soaps. Now I am shipping them off to some lucky people. I went to JoAnns and bought little cardboard boxes and decided to decorate them.
Toffer my model.
It was a fun little craft to do. I also bought this nice blue yarn and am currently knitting a scarf! It's a good activity to do at night. I've already gone through one ball of yarn already! I am looking forward to how it comes out.
So as you all know, I did not bring my press down to Tennessee. So that's why I'm focusing on just stamps because I obviously don't need a press for that. But I'm working on a couple different projects that I need to proof to see what I'm doing. I have my handy dandy barren, and it's awful!
I've been spoiled with my press. All I had to do was spin a wheel 5 times? And now it takes me about 8 minutes to get a decent proof? I had two workouts that day. My upper body was so sore. I'm not sure what that says about me? aha.
I LOVE THIS STAMP. It's so pretty. I ordered it in wrapping paper on Spoonflower, I should be getting it soon. So I am just going to wrap things that are completely unnecessary to wrap. Hopefully it turns out okay!
Also printed this pumpkin, which I think is adorable.
I've been working on one of my bigger projects, and it's going well so far. Haven't stabbed myself with the tool yet.
I've started watching The Good Wife on Amazon Prime, while working. I'm still on season 1. I like it, but I'm not obsessed with it.
I really need to find the perfect table and chair. I am always hunched over and my lower back and neck ends up hurting by the end of the day. I'm curious about the tables that go at a angle, I know there's a term for it, it's just not coming to me at the moment.
I just love this photo, cause Toffer looks like a yellow slug that's squinting at me and I am doing the side eye with my potato salad.
Moochie is doing well so far! She's been on the pills prescribed to her for about five days now. I have to get her blood work next Sunday. She's been taking the pills easily, I read that the side effects could show up the second week so I'll just be keeping an eye on her.
If anyone could donate for her that would be great!
