I've Traveled Half the World to Say "I Belong to You"

ART CON went really well. It was cold, but a good 20 degrees warmer than it had been all week, plus there were heaters. I was a cashier, and the job itself is pretty stressful, so I was and am still, totally exhausted. But it was worth it, and I will be back next year. Next year, I think I might even apply to be an artist.

I kept my head warm though, with this hat Nathan crocheted for me! My husband has many talents. This is his newest. He taught himself by watching videos online.

Nathan made me this hat

We are having a warm day today!~ Yay! Its supposed to get cold again tomorrow but I am enjoying it while it lasts.

It was strange getting dressed today because I kept wanting to add a layer!~ I am down two from the past couple weeks... A cardigan/hoodie and tights under my leggings. It feels nice!

I have got a super busy week this week. I am even double booked some nights. But I’m kind of looking forward to it. I have not been so busy in a while and it really does make the weeks go faster.

I love these earrings.

Pilar brought them back for me from Mexico. A couple months ago, I lost one of my big sterling silver hoops at work one day. I searched and searched, but didn’t find it. I even held on to the one I had left for a couple weeks, but I eventually gave up and threw it out. And don’t you know, the very next day the on e I lost showed up behind a box under my desk. I was so sad. But Pilar is such a good friend she thought of me a got me not just a replacement pair, but an even BIGGER pair. I love me some giant hoops.

This necklace is a gift as well!~ Wendy over at Prairie Oats (prairieoats to search) sent it to me. I just love it. I had actually been really wanting one, and when it arrived it made my week. Thank you Wendy!

What an adorable hat! I have been trying to learn to crochet from a book, but it's not working well. (The drawings they include are more confusing than helpful.) Would you mind passing on a few links to some of the videos Nathan used? That sounds like a great way to learn! Thank you!

So envious that you can wear a dropwaist. And it looks amazing with the military blazer.

That hat looks fantastic on you! That's so cooled that he learned to do that.

Great job Nathan! I plan on learning as well, but more for stress relief..I need something calming to do. Knitting sounds calming. But, I'll probably get frustrated and give myself a coronary, but I'll have a pretty scarf to show for it!

Still loving the socks-over-tights-under-boots!

You look great, but what I really need to say is...
"Your husband crochets?" that is remarkable, where can I get one?? (A hubbie that crochets that is! How awesome)
