If you are a frequent Etsy user, you know that Treasuries can be tricky to secure. I finally played the waiting game and scored a treasury tonight, must be a Christmas miracle haha. Here are my selections, all drawn from my favorites TREASURY.

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a very Merry Christmas this year. I'm at home with the rents and so happy to have a white Christmas for the first time in years! I got to see lots of my favorite Maryland people and there are still a few days left of my vacation. Hope everyone is doing well and is looking forward to 2010!

My Etsy Store!!!!!

Well, I've finally gotten everything together and opened my own Etsy store! It's called Ten and Ten (as in fingers and toes) and it's all about little ones. A lot of the knit and handmade items you have enjoyed in my blog are now for sale in the store. Anything baby I can probably make it. I have only a few items up right now, but I'm exploring new options and when my new Singer sewing machine comes in the sky's the limit! I'm very excited and I hope you all check it out and spread the word! My store can be found here: Ten and Ten as well as on the left side of my blog where a few items are featured. Enjoy!

Super Busy Weekend!

Well this weekend was packed full of activities, so I got zero crafting completed. We had a great time at Duck's Tacky Sweater Party on Friday, Jaxon's 3rd birthday party on Saturday, and Club Haven's Christmas Jammies Party on Saturday night. Here are the highlights from each party:

Jaxon's birthday is exactly Evan's half birthday, 6 months!

Free Money!

This is totally random, but if you were thinking about getting DirecTV, call 1-866-443-8869 and tell them I referred you with this account number: 82876421 before the new year and we will both get $100 credit! Pretty sweet deal. Also, if you are looking for an apartment in the Clear Lake TX area, I recommend The Park at Waterford Harbor. They're really nice and very animal friendly and we have a view! Tell them Jaclyn Wolfe and Christine Furgione sent you!

OMG, Santa!

We took the puppies to see Santa at the Baybrook Mall last night. There were lots of puppies and even a bunny in line to see the big man. Baloo and Bernoulli were so good with kids petting them and adults talking to them and other doggies saying hello! I was very proud of how well they acted and how good they were for the picture. Here is a look at the picture they took:

And this is Baloo and I in line:

The adorable bow ties I ordered from etsy can be found here: Bowties!
Can't wait for the Christmas card!

In the 30s in Houston!?!?

I always ask my friends if they want me to knit them something. It gives me a (sort of) legitimate reason to go out and buy yarn and find a new project to tackle. This one was fairly easy, I made a beanie type hat for my friend Anders. I used 100% organic cotton yarn and a pattern by Woolly Wormhead found here: HAT!. It's actually forecasted to snow on Friday in Houston! So, maybe he'll get to use it before he goes home to Wisconsin for Christmas :) Here's a few pics:
