Finding Things

On my weekly (but lately not-so-weekly lol) walk with my friends Erin and Tucker I picked up this lost to-do list. I guess I have it pretty easy compared to this guy - I think the hardest thing on my list right now is #4. Clean litter box!

I spent some time cleaning out the closet in my spare bedroom today. I'm kind of a packrat, but today I tossed a bunch of things I really don't need anymore. The stuff is still in my garage, so if anyone's interested in a stack of New Kids on the Block pictures ripped out of magazines and once taped to my bedroom wall let me know before Tuesday's trash pick up.

I did find a few interesting things though. Remeber when cds came in cardboard packaging? I stilll have the package from the REM album Automatic for the People. I remember it perfectly - Camille gave it to me for my 16th birthday and I unwrapped it on the bus on the way home from school. This was in December of 1992.

I also found a bunch of papers I had written in school (Mr. Keller gave me an A- on my essay comparing and contrasting two differant fiction genres!), a whole years' worth of The Pony Express, Stillwater high school's student newspaper, the essay my brother wrote for his 9th grade confirmation class (I have no idea why I have that!), and, best of all, grade school yearbooks.

I thought this was cute - here Dan has signed his name by his photo. This photo was probably taken in the fall of 1985, he was 7 years old. Note the missing teeth, the perfect currsive "D", and the not so perfect... well, check it out:

And if you think it's mean of me to post someone else's old yearbook photo, here's mine, too. I would have been 8 in this picture. A semi-related fun fact: The kid whose photo is next to mine on the page just started his first year as an elementary school principal!

Phone cozy

I always thought these bags were kind of goofy looking but the other day I realized I needed somewhere to put my phone besides my pockets. I just didn't have room in my pockets for all my stuff. So here it is - a phone cozy bag.

Knit & Crochet stuff

It's just a tiny bag with a strap. It can be hooked around a belt or the strap of the bag I carry to work every day. No more shoving in pockets or digging around in the bottom of my bag hoping to find the phone before it stops ringing!

No pattern, just made it up as I went. I used some clearance Joann Sensations yarn called Smania in the Dark Multi colorway. It's actually darker colors than the picture shows.
