Pretzels and bunny rabbits.

Another busy weekend has come and gone.

Spam-a-lot was ok. Not worth the money that we paid for the seats. Too much of it was pillaged from Life of Brian and the Holy Grail.

Saturday, we made pretzels for the next day, as it was our turn to bring snacks for curling.

Additionally, between Saturday and Sunday, I made this googly eyed bunny rabbit.

Monster long in the making....

Here's a red guy that I've had mostly done for a month or two, and just hadn't gotten around to putting eyeballs on him. They didn't work quite the way I was hoping, so onto another crazy stuffie.

Arooo!! Sock dog-arooni!

My latest completed sock dog! This one was requested from my friend Marisa.

Weekend number 2 of curling has passed, and all I can think of is how to get better. So many things to think about when I throw. Body position, balance, don't be too heavy handed. I'm going to try and squeak in some extra practice tomorrow.

This weekend is going to be a crazy weekend. Spam-a-lot Friday night, and the Hot Shot Curling event for 5 years of experience and under, and then novice league on Sunday. Have to find time to wash some laundry, clean the bathrooms, vacuum, and squeeze out a few more sock dogs or crazy stuffed animals.

Whoohoo! My glass eyes from the taxidermist store came in. More woolly beasts on the way!

And more curling tonight. Yay for Friday.

Granite Curling Club

You are looking at one of the newest additions to the Granite Curling Club.
I went to the open house tonight, and had a blast!!! All sorts of good fun. Fell on my butt trying to sweep, before I put grippers on my tennis shoes.

Finished Woolly.

I finished putting feet and a tail on my woolly monster. My hubby is going to whisk it off to his work, to watch over his cube.

Time to place an order for some eyeballs...

Woolly Beasts!!

Here is my woolly beast from my art & soul class yesterday. Mine is the one with 4 legs. I'm still finishing up his feet. The others belong to my classmates.

Finally, some projects completed!!

My friend Maya is busy off at Art & Soul in Portland. I am soooo jealous. Sounds like she is having an incredible time, especially in Nina Bagley's class. I'm very lucky to have her as my buddy. She took my charms with her, and is trading them away with the charmsters group. I will leave tomorrow after work, but as of this moment, am only taking Keely Barham's class Woolly Beasts on Monday.

Received my photos from Snapfish, and once I get a check written out, I can mail them to Catherine of the Yahoo Photo Journals Group. This months photo journal is titled Curiosities. It will be my first time participating after lurking around for the last year or two. I saw some demo'd at Artfest 2007 and they are just gorgeous.

Huzzah, our kitchen is mostly done. The counter tops have been installed. We just have a couple of little minor things left, like the trim on the window. Its been a long and arduous journey for the remodel.....

Happy Anniversary 6 years later....

My hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary a little late this year. The kitchen is unusable again, as we wait for the company to finish putting on our kitchen countertop.

We went to Stella Mia, had way too much incredible food. We started off with a bottle of red wine and polenta with gorgonzola sauce. For dinner, I had the cannelloni, and Jeremy ordered the spaghetti with meat balls. And to top it all off, we had cream caramel and spumoni for dessert. Yum yum yum.

Here's to 6 years of marriage!!
