Earring Holders and Creepy Buildings

Today I had to drop off a UPS package at a drop box I've never used before. After I finally found the building it was hidden in, I had to ride a very old elevator to the basement. I wish I had had my camera with me. The building was the Ohio Oil Company Building that houses random businesses and even storage lockers. It's obviously quite old and fairly creepy when it's empty. The elevators are especially old. Both elevators on the ground floor have spinning dials to show the floor that they're on. Very cool looking. And the elevator interiors were decked out in gold and green. I'll have to wander back in with my camera sometime soon!

Aside from the UPS drop box, and making a new earring holder, the day was fairly uneventful; just some laundry and dishes.

Jack always tries to help with the housework...

I do love my new earring holder though! It was inspired by one I saw on Kevin and Amanda. The colors not quite what I was going for but I think it turned out pretty well!

Well I think that's all for tonight! I am too stuffed from Kyle's spaghetti (yes, he cooked for me :) ) to stay up and blog so I will see you all later! Have a wonderful night!!

Oh How I Love Thunderstorms

Today started out beautiful and sunny and I was able to adventure through our new Goodwill, have lunch with the lovely Kyle and take the dog for a good hour long walk. And then a massive thunderstorm hit and I couldn't love it more! I have my bedroom window cracked so I can smell the rain and hear the thunder!!!

While I was working Saturday night I dreamed of an incredibly cute outfit I would like to make, whether entirely, or by adding some details to some pre-bought items. The outfit includes a brown knit slouchy hat like this one....(via Purl Chicks)

and a blue sweater very close in color and style this one...

but with pockets. Then I would like to add some very cute owl graphics in specific colors and locations!!! Oh how I want it now!!!!

I also feel in love with Yarn Bombing (Knit graffiti) on Saturday night. Some of my favorites are...

Just a Taste

So, just a short blog tonight because a) I'm working and b) I haven't been doing very well at this blogging again business so maybe easing into it will work out better. I've been spending all of my free time, and quite a bit of stolen time browsing craft gawker and have found so many cute projects and ideas! My summer goal for a while has been to get an Etsy store up and running. Unfortunately, every time I see a cute idea or dream up an awesome project, I only want to make one for myself and then move onto my next craft crush. Looks like there will be some much needed brainstorming and self control issues to deal with in order to balance the two! Well I suppose I better get back to work now. :) Have an awesome Sunday!!
