Getting this thing Up to Date

In trying to bring over all my images from my MySpace Blog, I've decided to try and post a couple of slideshows as a quick way to catch up, and have all the images of the projects I have created right here, so people aren't missing any of the good things I made this year before I made this blog. If you move your mouse over the pictures, and click on one, you will see it a bit bigger, and see the title of the picture.....

Thanks for looking, kind of image intensive I know, hope you liked what you saw!

Pedicure for daddy

Well, today was so cute, I was working on assembling Amber's yo-yo ghan, and Kenzie and Dawn wanted to play with the make-up my mother got them for their birthdays. So, here are the pictures. Kenzie is giving daddy a manicure.... with PURPLE nail polish. See how much her daddy loves her. I mean really how many men would use the pink toe separators and let their daughters paint their toe nails purple?? lol

And here are my toes getting the dawny treatment, in a subtle pearly color. Very nice!!

Fun was had by all! The girls were so happy, and we had a good chuckle.

Moving Day

I have tried and tried to find the right home for my blog. The poor thing never has enough time to get settled and really grow. I like the ease of change here on blogger, and the fact that I can have side links. so this should now be my permanent home. We'll see how it goes. Now for the next few days, I will be moving everything from my myspace blog to here, becuase I want all my projects from 2007 to be over here. So this will take some time, but I am confident that I can do it. I've already moved my WIP and Completed Projects lists here, so that is half the battle. Soon to come will be pictures and what not. Should be interesting to say the least.

Hope you come back often and see what is new. I have a couple of patterns that will be put on here in the next week. And I'm hoping to do more designing in the weeks and months to come. I have some great sketches that need to be converted to yarn speak, and can't wait to share them with everyone.

So here is to a new beginning and finding the right layout!! More coming soon, so stop back by in a few days, and this place should be cleaned up a bit!
