Dom's 1st birthday

Today is Domonics first birthday. Which means 1 month until I turn 19. He is the youngest out of all of the little cousins. If I can get some pictures I will post them. I will try to get video too.
Went to a coffee house last night with Josh & Jeff to see Meghan Tonjes. AMAZING! She is the first youtube person I have ever met. Plus, I didn't have a panic attack. At one point i did get really tired. It's not my fault I like going to bed at like 9:30... okay i guess it is.

Editing videos

I am puting together videos today while I write a final paper for my business law class. I need to edit videos not only for my blog but it is a good escape for me. School is gonna be crazy. I have to complete 22 months instead of the 14 they told me. maybe I understood them incorrectly. I may be going to hang out with Josh tonight. oh boy... long day ahead

Sorry

For the lack of blog yesterday. I was trying to figure some stuff at the house out. Also, I contemplated new crafts that I could try. I almost went to Aunt Jill's yesterday but it didn't happen. Dad wouldn't have picked me up until really late though and Aunt Jill deserves a break.
I started making knit flowers this morning. Here is how I did so:
1. picked out yellow yarn
2. used spool knitter

3. knitted 20-30 rows
4. wound it up into flower like pattern
5. stitched together with left over yarn
6. insert button in middle.

It didn't turn out too great but I found a different way to make them as well so I may do that.

First Quilt to show

Nana & Aunt Jill made me this for my high school graduation 2009

They made a few like it but they say mine was the prettiest. I have a feeling it is because of the yellow border.

Long time no blog....

Hey all!
I haven't blogged in a while. I have been super busy. The format, or subject matter actually, of my blog may be changing. I may use this just to talk about projects I do. This may include my knitting, scrap-booking, and other crafts. so I thought I would talk about how I got into crafting. I may also make a video about this on my youtube channel. I have been thinking about making a crafting channel for a while too. Let me know what you think!
I have been doing crafts for a long time. Ever since I can remember actually. I'm not just talking about crafts you make in school... My grandma and I hung out a lot together when I was a kid. We don't see each other as often as I would like anymore. I love her more than anything in the world.
Anywho, I think the first craft we did was stamping cards. My grandmother [or Nana as i like to call her] is very good at it. She hasn't stamped in a while. A lot of her stamps are from the early 90's until the early 2000's. it's fun now for me to explain clear stamps and acrylic blocks to her... oh Nana.
She has been crafty her whole life. She loves one thing the most it seems, sewing. I have quilt after quilt from her and I love them all. I tried to sew a few times and it hasn't really worked out. The machine kind of freaks me out. She bought me one when i turned 10 and I never used it. I do make pillows out of old tee shirts but she sews most of it for me. I do the whipstich part at the end, not very well I might add.
I have gotten into making ribbon flowers and I am trying to perfect that but it isn't going well. Oy!
Scrapbooking has been my focus these days. I have only made a few but they are fun. I tried to finish my first one in 9th grade and it didn't end well. I should have done a smaller one.
Anyways, I am going to go do school stuff and maybe a bit of crafting. good times.
Thanks for reading!
