My package to J-Kieviet is on its way!  Hope to have Lo{ve}'s out the door by the weekend. 

I have the same problem, underthemountain!  I start prepping for Bdays and special occasions way early and then I can hardly contain myself and keep things stashed away for their intended purpose! 

gavagai - I will never put a hole through a penny again without giggling about that inquisition comment!   Grin

Don't feel too stupid Monica. I once stuck my hand in the oven and pulled a cast iron pan out... bare handed!  It took several weeks for it to completely heal and it hurt like the devil the whole time.  Also in kitchen injuries, my husband stuck a butter knife through his palm making a peanut butter sandwich once.  We've never figured that one out.

Ah, butter knife?  I wish it was that for my husband.  We have a sword collection.  And a couple years back one falls on his foot and thus he has to go to the emergency room for a stab wound to the foot.  Ah.....after that we decided we didnt want swords in the house-to dangerous.  Well, we couldnt find anyone to buy them from us, so we still have them now-but they arent hung or displayed-just shoved in the back of the closet where they cant fall on anyone.  Well, I guess having them still-we're ready for the zombie apocalypse

And, to stay on topic-I never did get to claim babalina for amigurumi.  With home school and an in-law visiting I didnt have time to pop online much, let alone make any more claims.  I might make a claim still-if its a supplies claim.  Does anyone want some random crochet/knit books?  Random fabric for quilting?  Hmmm...I will just keep an eye on the thread.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

So excited and I just had to share...........just snuck in a little "I really should be working, but I'd rather be in the garage time" and made the first of Lo{ve}'s fork wall hooks!  Way cool, so much fun to make and I made friends with the bench grinder.  I'm hoping to gather up some more forks and send a bunch her way by the weekend!

Neato!  It's fun to make new friends, esp when they are tools.  LOL.

I think I'm going to be able to send tomorrow to Katpac and GlassKicker!  Smiley

BTW, how did you come up with your name GK?  You don't kick glass do you?

Well...........this is probably a terrible parenting story....but here goes Roll Eyes  We are HUGE hockey fans - the lockout was very frustrating for us.  Big Boston Bruins fans and my boys love the Sully's brand shirts out of Boston - only mom always insisted that they only wear the 'nice' t-shirts.  My boys are now 19 and 20 and off to college.  We work from home and the high school is just down the road from our place, so we always had a huge crew here for lunch.  One day I came home from a meeting and the gang was already here and hanging around the kitchen island.  As I'm headed into the office, out of the corner of my eye I see one kid from the backside wearing a Milan Lucic Boston Bruins T-Shirt, but instead of Lucic, the name plate said "___-Kicker".  Being the mama-type that I am, I used my mama-bear tone and asked "Does your mama know you're wearing that on your back?"  The kid turns around and says "She does now!"  and I'm horrified to realize it's my own child!  It's been a source of constant ribbing - being the only girl in the house, I tend to get a lot of that.  As I've gotten more involved in art glass and considered branching out to making a hobby-business out of it, lots of laughter and dinner-table conversations have led to the name GlassKicker Designs.  

Oops, just realized I'm off topic here:  so.........second fork wall hook done!  These are actually kind of fun.
