Happy Sunday everyone! Haven’t blogged in a while, but I have LOTS to blog about in the coming weeks (yay)! Today, however was VERY exciting and VERY special since I met, in person, Abby from Back at Square Zero! She was in town visiting her Oma for a few days, so we decided to meet at Peet’s Coffee!
On the way back home after the meet and greet, I stopped by Michaels and Target to spend some holiday gift card money! Yay for free things! At Michaels I got a loom set, so I could start making lots of cool new things, like hats, ear warmers and shawls, without needles or crochet hooks! I also got a crochet hook organizer (hot pink), since I find mine shoved in balls of yarn or unable to find the size I need since it is lost somewhere in the yarn bag…Simplifies life! I have SO MUCH yarn to choose from, I might end up making multiple hats and ear warmers (like ones I have below), yikes! I have a tendency to go a bit overboard with new things since they are so exciting!
And since Target was in the same shopping center (convenient right?) I bought some new slippers (with bling!) on sale for $10 and the Nieman Marcus gloves for only $25! ALL Nieman Marcus items are 50% off at Target! The black leather gloves were the LAST pair in my size (Small/Medium), I have small hands, short fingers and small wrists, so these fit perfectly! Funny how I tweeted about these gloves a month ago thinking they were SO adorable and that I’d only pine after them. LOVE AFTER CHRISTMAS SALES, all I can say!
How was everyone’s weekend?
