Getting Owly

Amongst other crafty endeavors, I enjoy crocheting. I don't know why, but I almost always seem to get the urge to crochet during the fall/winter more so than the other warmer months. A couple of years ago I made this cute owl contraption.

I use it mostly to hold my cotton rounds but it can hold all types of smaller items.

Friday Favs

Well, today is officially the last weekday of my two week vacation. I had a blast; wish I could do it all over again. I was able to take my oldest daughter to school ( I normally can't do that when I have to work) and pick her up, I got to stay home with the baby and watch all the cartoon and puppet shows that she likes to watch. I got to cook, and relax and just be me.

I also got to shop online which is a favorite past time of mine. I think I kind of overdid it but I figure I deserved it.

I ordered the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV. I like to wear makeup, but I usually don't wear it very often due to the fact that I have to be at work for 5:00am in the morning and I am usually too tired and moody to apply it that early but hopefully this will motivate me to want to put on a little something.
I also ordered these BCBG ballet flats. I'm kinda obsessed with the leopard print these days. Next I need a leopard print cardigan, and I also need to get a pair of leopard print wedges.  I can't wait for these shoes to be delivered to my door.

Spiked Beauty

I sooo want these. These are the Jeffrey Campbell Spiked Lita's. My sister has two pairs of these style of shoes and I've never really been interested in them..... until now.

Etsy Take 2!!

I'm currently on vacation from work for two weeks and have been having a great time just laying around and doing the things that I want to do. I actually feel like a parent because I get to stay home with the baby and take my oldest daughter to school in the morning.

I was able to take a quick weekend trip to California again. I love it out there so much. It was just me from early Friday morning, to late Sunday night. I had a great time. I went to Santa Monica Beach, the 3rd Street Promenade, and did some shopping. Hopefully, I'll be able to take another trip out there before the year is out.

Anyhoo, I decided to open up another Etsy shop. I've been sewing a lot since I've been on vacation and I decided to open up a little shop to showcase and to get rid of some of them.

My new shop is called...... Material Gurl, just like my blog!!!!!

These are just a couple of the pouches that I have listed right now. I will also be adding some small sewing notions and such.

New Camera

I purchased a new camera last week and I am super excited. It's the Canon Rebel EOS T3. I haven't used it to take any pictures yet because I want to thoroughly read the manual first so that I can get full use out of it. I'll have time to do that next week when I'm on vacation, but until then, I'll just keep staring at it!
