I hope you have had a good Valentine’s Day and that you were able to share it with your loved one. If you are single, I hope you were able to do something special for yourself this holiday.
I like all holidays and love baking, decorating for holidays, and doing fun and thoughtful things but my holiday celebrating does not usually revolve around spending large sums of money. I like to do little things that come from the heart. I do get annoyed with all the pressure to buy/spend money. I do not need diamonds, jewelry, or anything expensive to make me feel loved during Valentine’s Day or other holidays. Pull me some flowers from the yard or just spend time with me. I will be happy. : )
I did not sleep at all last night. I spent most of the night downloading/trying software and trying to find a workable solution to save and keep my important reference materials from class.
I tried many free pdf programs before settling on Cute PDF writer because of its ease of use.
Here are a few of the programs/services that I tried and my ratings of either “Way Cool” or “Not So Much”.
Google notebook – Not So Much
It messed up the formatting on the information I was trying to save.
Microsoft Office One Note – Way Cool!
Great System for organizing notes!
Google Documents – Way Cool!
Nice solution for saving documents (supports several different formats) and sharing as well as backing up your documents online.
Windows Live SkyDrive – Waaaaaaaaay Cool!
25 GB of storage space with the capability to share using the Public Folder option.
The Granny Square blanket:
I have three colors on the granny square afghan so far. The center square is red, then orange and yellow around that. I changed my plan and have now decided to use many different colors on this afghan instead of just going with red, yellow and orange. I will try and get some pictures later of my progress to show you.
Project 2: Amigurumi "Cookie" Creation
This is going to sound funny but anyhow...
I am using features from two different amigurumi patterns and taking different things from each. The patterns are from the book called "Tiny Yarn Animals - Amigurumi Friends to Make and Enjoy by Tamie Snow". I am trying to make a cat Amigurumi stuffed animal that looks like our cat Cookie. (or at least I hope it resembles her in some tiny way when I am finished. Time will tell LOL) So far I have half of the head made.
That is all I can think of to say right now so I will be back later. ;)
