in my garage in the storage containers

THAT'S IT!!!  For some reason, we have a 1000 sq ft house, but a 700 sq ft garage.  I have NO idea why a house of this size (or a family with one car) needs a three car detached garage, but there you have it.  That's perfect! 

The kids don't go out there, and hubby doesn't mess around with any of my stuff in there.  I'm sure a tote or three could easily be hidden with gardening stuff, and seasonal items.  The pets won't be able to get into them, and if I bag things properly, I can easily keep any kind of dust or garage creepy crawlies off of my gifts.

I also occasionally go out there when it's just too chaotic or noisy for me in the house, to "organize my stuff"... which is a total lie, as anyone who has seen my garage could tell you in about three seconds. Still, it's widely accepted that I do lurk in there by myself from time to time, and no one thinks much of it at all.  I'd be able to store WIPs and maybe even do some work out there for short periods of time... like Silvermoon said, rows do add up when you start early enough!

 I just facepalmed for real.  You guys are great, and while I SHOULD have thought of that before, I completely didn't.   Here I was, planning a craft ninja year full of deception, secrecy and stealth, when all I really had to do was look at the structure that I can literally see as I'm typing, and put two and two together. Thank you thank you thank you!

Cadaver - I just thought of something else, when we were kids mum used to hide our presents in the roof, just inside the manhole cover.

Lafemme - love the lightning bolt earings!

So, I got up around 10am and got NO crafting done at all today.  I'm still playing catch-up from our trip with laundry, putting away of items.  I also had to get several items up on eBay to sell, as my girl and I are shrinking out of our clothes and so we have quite a few nice items that are too big for us now Smiley 

I'm watching The Two Towers with our roommate right now, and hopefully when it's over I will have a few minutes to grab some supplies and take to work and TRY to get some crafting worked on!

Thank you for your help w/copyright stuff.  I had to learn a bit in library training classes.  I know that I would not copy and use peoples materials as my own.  I know that just cause I have a copy don't make it mine...but the workers there shouldn't just write them all off, either!  The front of MaryJanesFarm has 5 FREE Apron Patterns on the front cover and the instructions to "Make a copy of this page, then enlarge it 400% for your life-size MaryJanesFarm pattern."  I'll find some way to get-r-done!

On the garage, make sure you pack them well. We had some clothes stored in my in-laws garage, and when I got them back they smelled like gasoline.

Love love love the "Painting the Roses Red" necklace.

On the apron issue, my husband is in law school specializing in copyrights and he said the instructions that say to copy and enlarge the page is the magazine giving you a license to copy it.  So maybe try a different copy place and make sure to show them the instructions.

I have taken the entire magazine or book to our local copy shop to show them...some have even made copies and highlighted to protect themselves...I do small enlargements at home, but the big ones need professional copiers!  I agree--try a different place!

love the roses necklace and the lightning bolt earrings--well done!

I made three hats this weekend (yeah--pretty boring weekend!)...


This one is my favorite:

Also, got some cool yarn in a swap so I had to use some of it:

Got tired of air going down my shortie boots so I whipped up these boot inserts--simple crochet--the part under the bulky yarn is a regular worsted weight yarn--the bulky yarn folds over the boot top!

Finally, the terrific Luna Scarf designed by pinkleo and shown in this gallery by luckdragon!

Lot's of pretty things, Always~! I really like the first hat, since that blue is one of my faves. I bet my friend Stacy would like those boot inserts too.

alwaysinmyroom - those are all beautiful! I love the colors in the blue hat and the textures of the yarn in the black and red hat! The boot inserts are genius! Please tell me that you didn't also do the scarf this weekend (which is gorgeous by the way) or I will be even more convinced that I craft/knit at a snails pace...  Grin
