Late-in-the-week update

No pictures this week for crafting. Just a quick update of the knitting, as it is really the only craft I have worked on this week!

I restarted the Adult Tomten, and I have 4 inches completed.

The first sock needs another inch or so before I begin the inch of ribbing. I know I'm a dork, but I love turning heels. I worry and worry about the process and then I am so thrilled to watch it actually work!

The Peter Easy sweater vest is 8.5 inches long, and it gained an inch and a half. I am feeling more and more confident in knitting several different ways. I can throw right and left handed, and scoop with my left hand. I want to be knitting until the day I die, and not worry about repetitive stress injury or arthritis.

What I HAVEbeen working on is a crafting love from the past, my digital scrapbooking. I was truly obsessed with digital scrapbooking, was even a part owner in a digital scrapbooking website. But the stress of juggling a forty hour work week in stressful pediatric home care and a busy homelife and then spending forty or more hours a week at the computer designing and helping to build the website grew to be too much for me. And when I quit the website, I pretty much quit my scrapbooking.
Then I bought a laptop, and due to software issues, I just couldn't work up the energy required to set up all my scrapbooking stuff. I tried to build a website myself, but it seemed like every time I worked on the website, I would take one step forward and three steps back. Eventually I just pretty much gave up, but every once in a while I would take a stab at the website or try to make a layout on the old laptop.
For whatever reason, I decided to give the software issues a go and lo and behold, I had SUCCESS!
Which just affirms my belief that there is a time for everything, and everything in its own time.

So, without further ado, I'd like to re-introduce my website, It's very plain at this stage, and not all of the links are functional, but it is pretty much "there" for now. Just please enjoy!
