if you have nothing nice to say.. come over here.

Scandal is gossip made tedious by morality.
-Oscar Wilde

Reply with you or me, if you say you, I'll tell you a secret about myself that may or may not be true but I'll try to make it scandalous enough for gossip, if you say me, I'll make up some lies about you tell you what people say about you. Really. Honestly. Would I lie?

Well.. yeah, of course. The best gossip always has nothing to do with verifiable fact.

Oh shopping hurts..

I'm an all over ache, which clearly says I shopped too much yesterday. When Mike got off work he called and asked if I wanted to go out for comic books, I said okay and so we did, our local comic shop was giving out boxes of candy to people who spent more then 50 dollars yesterday only. We spent that easily. So now we have a box of Scooby Doo chocolate bars, I'm saving the wrappers. I could make a purse of them for someone who really loved Scooby Doo.
I did pick up ecru colored cotton yarn for a shawl for myself, it's not exactly what I want, but the cotton is inexpensive enough to practice with and fine tune my design before spending the money on what I *want* it made out of. Ecru because I thought about it, and I can wear ecru with black, but white on grey doesn't look right. So now the question, which do you think looks better? Long rectagular wraps or triangle shawls? Mike had no opinion. One of my major issues with most knitters and crocheters is that they don't take advantage of the fact that since they are making it for themselves, they can make them to fit properly. I find that two small shawls on some women make me *flinch* Mine will be big enough. The yarn cost about 15 dollars for enough for one shawl plus some left over. Amazingly, the cotton Peaches and Cream cones at Wal*Mart are made in America!
Mike spent the money on a new surround sound system since we've killed 2 in the last few years, 1000 watts of screaming dolby sound he'll hook up tonight. It means I need to do home cooked meals for the next couple of weeks, but that's easy enough. He also LOVED the pencils.
On a just because I can note, my new camera records audio and video in MPG format, so I will post short Emily and William videos to ysi for Bex and R if you two are interested. The files are a bit large so they will be very short, but you'll get to see them.

I was thinking I need to start posting some of my PSP tutorials and methods in here, I was looking at glittery text tutorials earlier today, and thought "I really prefer my method". I have several PSP tutorials at my website if people are interested, plus maybe some templates and brushes.

beads!

Collapse )

There are a couple online sources for these wonderful beads, but honestly, most of them cost a bit more then locally, I need to check with the online stores I have the most business with to see who carries them so I can link to them after the bracelet is done and I post it.
