Learning New Things

When I learn something new I feel so giddy. Today after picking Seth up from work we stopped at the thrift store. It was a great trip. I found some butterfly wall decoration I want to paint and put up as a little cluster on the wall, a little wall shelf for tiny treasures I find, and I FINALLY found a clock I can use for a style school project! Then I picked up a few shirts to try out t-shirt yarn. This is my first ball of t-shirt yarn. I can't wait to crochet something with it!

I also found a roll of green fabric for $2 so I decided to try making a rag rug with it. I think it is turning out cute already. Can't wait to use it in my kitchen!



And when I got home my business cards that I ordered from Moo.com came in! I LOVE how they turned out! I uploaded a picture of Erin Sunday's gloves that I made her for her birthday & one of my granny square necklaces to be printed on the front. I really love them!
