Oh Regretsy I love how you make my days less crappy with your random post of what people call handmade when they try to sell it on etsy.
Something caught my eye while I was looking and I had to post it here to have everyone else enjoy it.

If you can't tell by the bad screen printed job its Edward from Twlight.
I don't know about you but the person that would spend $45 plus s/h to have this creepy looking CPR dummy lay next to them in bed would have to be a very lonely women. If they really want to make some money they could attach a sex toy to the dummy and then they would be worth the $45.

The battle of the Social Networks.

So I caved in and got back into Twitter. I thought to myself "why am I still logging into myspace when all I get are friend request from people I don't know who don't have anything in common with me or bands I wouldn't listen to even if you gave me a million bucks to. So I became the social whore and linked my facebook and Twitter page. I can annoy and update people on all the crap I make for the shop along with table events and show listings. So for now please enjoy my boring life as you can follow me on Twatter or sit on my facebook.

Ravelympics 2010

For those who don't know what the Ravelympics are. Allow me to school you in a knitting/crocheting version of the Olympics.www.ravelry.com is a beta community for fiber artists(aka knitters and crocheters)if you are interested in joining keep in mind there is a waiting list but the good part is its not a long wait.Lot of groups are on Ravelry and sometimes they compete in many categories from Mittens,Socks and WIPS(works in progress).
This year I was too late to start my own team and sad to only find out that the only Texas team is a spinning team. Sucks to be me for now but next time I will be ready.

So the event I picked is Mitten Moguls and the pattern I am doing is knockout handwarmers. I haven't made them before so I would like to give it a try.

We don't cast on until the ceremony begins which is 6:30pm in my neck of the woods.Our deadline or finishing line isn't until the 28th of this month.
So with that I leave you root for me!
I can hear the "eye of the tiger song" playing in the background.
