A (Not So Simple) Trip To The Local Craft Store

A (Not So Simple) Trip To The Local Craft Store

Betsy tried her hardest when she visited the local craft store to buy some yarn ๐Ÿงถ She wanted to make a simple scarf for her Mister but she ended up buying more than needed.

Happy Friday, friends! Took the day off from work for a medical visit. The little one needed his flu shot and a haircut just before school starts. Here’s to hoping for a smooth transition and more time for me to work on my illustrations and programming on all things Betsy related ๐Ÿฎ Did a simple prayer and tarot reading while writing down my intentions on what I would like to achieve during the New Moon in Virgo phase. My Moon in Virgo is feeling this so that explains the need for a more productive day, I guess.

Speaking of projects…I finally got back into loom knitting after putting it off for some time (i.e motherhood and job). Now that things are winding down for a bit, I figured it would be great to work on a blanket for my Pillow Pet Cow. And yes, for the kid as well ๐Ÿ˜› the cold season is approaching so might as well be prepared.

If there’s one thing I know about going to Michaels, it can be heaven to my creative soul but hell on my wallet. It’s even worse when you are a frequent customer at the establishment (as noted in my tweet below):

I bought some yarns that are from Yarinspirations Caron x Pantone brand. I’m also getting a knitting machine in the mail that I hope to use when making scarves and hats in bulk.

I used to crochet, but I find that keeping the stitches straight has been a challenge. Even in making simple dolls was hard on my coordination. The only time I would use crochet is if I’ll do some simple finishing designs at the end of my work or just bind pieces together with the leftover yarn.

Do you happen to knit / crochet? Ever felt tempted to buy almost every single product at your local craft store? Let me know in the comments below ๐Ÿ’ญ

Namaste,

Spending Black Friday

Spending Black Friday

Sorry ๐Ÿ˜ food is life. Especially when my sweet treats are on sale ๐Ÿฆ I’m not too keen in potential brawl fights over tech equipment during this time of year. Which is why I wait for Cyber Monday.

Funny story happened during Thanksgiving – I wasn’t planning to do any shopping at our local mall. Until the Google WiFi started to crap out in my home while working. Needless to say, it was an interesting drive in the middle of the night getting the network extenders for another router. The crowd wasn’t too bad at Best Buy. Still, it was nice to tune out the noise with an audiobook while I was waiting online to purchase the network devices.

Mercury Retrograde is no joke. It really messed up our tech devices. Looks like I’ll need to ask the tech gods on getting our network devices up and running smoothly.

Safe travels during this time!

Namaste,

-D.
