Adventures in 2012!

Well, it's here and one of my resolutions is to keep up with my blog better. Now, that may be difficult because one of the BIG changes for 2012 is that I will now be home schooling my 9 year old daughter! My hope is to get a little blog post in here and there while she is working on school work.

This is going to be a big change for me. I've gotten pretty used to have my days free to do as I want. Now I'll have a kiddo to worry about and take everywhere with me. I'm actually really looking forward to it! I think we are going to have so much fun! The first thing I did was to print out a list of "holidays" for every day this month and I hope to do something fun to correspond to each day. So, today is Soup Day!! Guess what we'll be having for dinner? LOL!! Other fun days this month include Jan8 - Elvis' Birthday, Jan12 - Little Red Riding Hood Day, Jan16 - Nothing Day, and Jan21 - Hat Dy.

As for my crochet designing, well, it looks like 2012 is going to be a good year for publication. My first two designs just came out in the new Crochet W
orld Magazine and I have many, many more to come! I am finishing up another design this week and will be starting yet another one due at the end of the month! I'm really excited about these. This year I hope to submit (and have accepted) a lot more designs and I hope to self-publish at least 3 new patterns to sell online.

Other than that, I am currently working on my knitting skills. Who knows....maybe some knit designs will be showing up soon from Jaybird Designs?? On my needles right now is the Waffle Stitch Scarf from Bernat. Since I only had one ske
in of Mosaic, I am making the scarf skinnier and in the beautiful shade of Spectrum.

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful 2012 and I am looking
forward to staying in touch with you more! Have a great day!
