Sorry about being gone for what is it now...TWO I didn't realize it was that long. But what can I do when life is throwing me curve balls when I'm up to bat. In other words, there was a lot of stuff going on that caused me to give up the non-essentials in life. However, we won't dawn on the negatives and move on to some good things that have been happening.

I am back at college for the third year living in an on-campus apartment with three friends. Here is a peak at what my room looks like this year.

As you can see it is pretty plain but I hope to add some Camco 42655 RV Retro Travel Trailer Party Lights around the room and crochet some star bunting as well to spice it up a little bit.

Since I've been away I have turned the big 2-0 and as a surprise to make me feel better my mom got me some of the yarn I need for the ripple blanket which I have since started. I am really proud of it and can't wait for it to be done.

If time allows I would love to snuggle up with that this winter, but something tells me I won't be able to get it done. This year I have a ton of course work plus I have taken on two teaching assistant jobs which also has a lot of work to do as well. Don't get me wrong I am enjoying every minute of it, ok maybe not every minute but at the end of the day I usually feel like I've accomplished something.

So anyway, that is what has been going on and why I've been missing for awhile. Now on to some things that are changing, especially around here. At the top of the page you may have noticed the new title. I'm super proud of it and made it myself. It has a bit of a pin-up/vintage flair to it and she is wearing an apron so this blog is going to be in for a little bit of a make-over. Since I don't always have time to work on crafty things, I'm going to be adding in some family recipes or other recipes that I love. Along with cooking, I will also be talking about some classic movies that I enjoy and probably be talking about my favorite time period: the 30's and 40's. Besides those I will probably be talking more about what is going on in my life.

Another thing that has also tickled my fancy is photography. Sadly there won't be too much on that subject since I am quite the novis and my personal camera is, well in nice terms, sub-subpar. Santa has been hinting that I may find a new camera in my stocking this year. Until then I will be borrowing a camera from the college every now and then to take some pictures (mostly of my dogs, you have been warned). Above is a picture I took over Labor Day weekend when I went to visit the family.

Well I think I am done with this post before I make your eyes go mad from all the reading. Plus I have some notes that I need to type and other homework to get done (time to be a good little student). Until next time, stay crafty!
