Hey Bloggers!

I have been working on a scarf for my sister made from this beige wool. It's turning out wonderfully and I am almost done :D

I have been reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs which is turning out to be a great read! and possibly going to be added to my collection of favorite books :0 There are 3 more books of the series, I got this one and "knit for the season" for Christmas thanks to my mom :)

I have been browsing etsy lately and there are many wonderful knitted items on the market today, I have a dream of one day selling my knitted work online, but must work harder in order for this dream to become reality!
well ta-ta for now my loves,

Fluffy mittens and cupcake pillows

Hey Bloggers!

Today (much too late I know) I am going to Michaels to pick out the wool I need to begin the fluffy cuff mittens :) I am super excited to get started on this prtoject!
I found a cupcake pillow pattern as well in this "Picture perfect knits" book (pg. 57) by Laura Birek that I'd love to take on once this one is completed. I always have so many ideas and I just need to get started to complete them all.
So I am getting really excited for the fall now, i can't wait for the leaves to fall off the trees, is that weird? should i be sad summer is leaving? truth is, I have had an awesome summer and ready for an awesome fall as well. I am such a fall person, I get creatively inspired and want to make make make in the fall, the summer not so much. The winter I knit gifts for others so it is an equally fun, creative time. :)
alright! have a great weekend! happy creating

Love Lisa

Fluffy Cuff Mittens: step one, decision to make them

Hey all !

Okay so since I HAVE NOT BEEN KNITTING at all! I will be knitting some fluffy cuff mittens I found in my stitch 'n bitch book :) [Stoller, Debbie, pg. 180]
I thought that they looked adorable and why not? just because it's summer, but soon it will be winter and who doesn't need cozy mittens ? :) I am quite excited because i've never taken on a challenge such as this, and hey if I get good, maybe I can knit them for family and friends and maybe my boyfriend? I think he'd love a pair ;)
I am listening to George Michael's "Last Christmas". I just got into the mood, which probably sparked this need to knit the mittens lol. . it makes me want it to be cold outside making it nice and cozy inside.. so romantic :)
Okay so I promise promise promise that I will be posting photos regularly of my progress and they WILL be knitted! :)

I have been feeling saddened by the fact that I am not knitting.. :( I never decided, I am not going to knit anymore. The interest just faded I guess, but there was a time I was almost obsessed with it and about becoming a better knitter and yearning to make clothing and all. I want to be that girl again and pick up those needles! It's a part of who I am now and I am not embracing this self :/
I will pick up the needles tonight and knit something/ anything then post later on.. I also would love to get this blog up and running again I hate that it's been sitting, collecting dust for awhile now...

anyways! I better begin ;)


ps. things are going great with the pof guy ;) !

I had the idea of knitting a cube with different types of stitches just for fun, maybe my toddlers can play with it when im done ;) I work with toddlers at a childcare center.. Here's some pictures of what I'm thinking.. if you're like what is she talking about???
It won't be exactly like this, but this is the kind of thing I'm thinking of making..

Monday : a couple quotes for you!

Hey Everyone,
it's that day again where all reality returns and we must go back to work lol I have had a very relaxed couple of days, didn't do much to be honest but online guy and I are doing soooo well, we are getting super excited about our date to come and future dates, [he's already thinking of future dates with me and we haven't met yet! lol] I'm excited to tell my friend at work this morning, we fill each other in on the latest guy details ;)

So some great quotes for you this morning :

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams,
live the life you have imagined"

Henry David Thoreau

I love this short quote because it gives me that boost to do something for myself without being too long to read. I feel like accomplishing my goals and dreams.

"When you are inlove you can't fall asleep because reality is better than in your dreams"
Dr. Suess

This one is adorable and although I can't say that right now I am inlove, I can say that I like someone a lot and I think for a long time about him before I fall asleep lol so I feel this adorable quote is very true, to my life anyways I am super excited! hha

Have a great day! love writing you in the morning, feels more personal than at night! :)

hey :)
I just watched Sleepless in Seattle, it was so adorable..

I just love Meg Ryan andTom Hanks together, they make such a cute pair, like in you've got mail as well. Meg Ryan is one of my favorite actresses, I just love her acting style. I also just recently watched serious moonlight that she acted in, and she's the same even 17 years later :)

have a great night, hopefully it's not sleepless ;)


This song is sooo addicting :O

I feel it in my bones.... ;)



Friday, April 30, 2010


Hey everyone! it's Friday yippee I went out for a bike ride and enjoyed the nice air against my face. I enjoyed seeing all my neighbours out and about working outside and also biking or walking. I am working on my fitness and trying to lose those last 10-15 pounds haha that hardest to lose! :( In other news.. I joined about 3 weeks ago, met someone kind of great :P but there's just some reasons that would make the relationship difficult but I might risk it? they aren't huge but just ethnicity, I was involved with an Indian guy before and he didn't want to tell his parents about me! and this guy seems wonderful, but hes 3rd generation Pakistani! what should I do??? go for it or put on the brakes because of my past experience? he seems so sweet..

My Friday favorites for this week are...

1. To read

Enjoy positive notes every morning with your cup of coffee.. mmm

2. To wear

Forever21 "Pearlescent Owl Necklace"

3. To eat

Adorably decorated cupcakes!

4. Papercranes on a clothespin, very creative!

from snorkiesnork!
well that's it for this week!! ill write to you tomorrow have a grrr-eat night!

Wednesday wonders

Hello Friends!

So since it is Wednesday it is time to post something from my room :)
This week I decided to post this picture of the Dalmation bag I tossed because it was old. I have so many things I've kept from my childhood and after looking it over decided to toss it because of it's not so clean interior...
I love this photo though and glad I found it while looking on my computer tonight :) love the 100 Dalmations :P

Maybe it's all those hoarder shows I watch..

Have a great night!!

Happy Monday & I quote

Hey !!


Men's best successes come after their disappointments.
Henry Ward Beecher.

First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do.


People with many interests live, not only longest, but happiest.
George Matthew Allen

Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.
George Santayana

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things so wrong so that you apprieciate them when they are right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
— Marilyn Monroe

It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness
- Chinese Proverb

Eighty percent of success is showing up. ~ Woody Allen

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you. ~ Dr.Seuss


Hope you enjoyed them!!
Tomorrow weheartit photos :) & progress on my goals

Wednesday and Thursday in one :D

Hello my lovely Followers :)

I got home late last night and was too tired to do anything but lie down on the couch, so I am sorry I missed out on Wednesdays theme of take a photo of my room. The good news is, that today I will post both a picture of something from my room AND the world event/ news clip to discuss!! :D

so firstly,
I think this would be my favorite post because my objects are important to me and are a huge part of who I am. I know (hoarder much?) I watch that show too too much so now I think i'll get attached to all my things and never part with them.

Today's item is...... *drum roll please*

My porcelain sock monkey!

There is a pottery painting place nearby and my friends and I went there one day and just painted! It was fun, we got to choose the pottery piece and the paint colors and then they fired it for us and out it came looking very shiny and loved it :)


For Thursday's entry....
The Volcano in Iceland named the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is still erupting!Photo source

It started March 25th,2010 and had an eruption on April 19th,2010. Pretty crazy stuff. It's delayed and canceled tons of flights because of the smoke and ash. I find volcanoes really intriguing because it is so huge and so unstoppable. I loved the movie "Dante's Peak" it was just so intense and realistic as to how one would feel in a small town near a dormant volcano that went from not harming to alarming in a week's time.

well that's it for today :)

Goodnight and sleep tight, hopefully no volcanos erupt near you tonight lol
