INSPIRED TO ABUNDANCE 2019 – SUM 6

I suppose I really should get serious about getting my driver’s license.

The sum to spend is $5,000:

$3,600 – Driver’s Training Courses for 4 People

$400 – Learner’s License Exams & Cards for 4 People

$600 – Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum

$200 – KitchenAid® 4.5-Quart Bowls x 4

$80 – KitchenAid® Wire Whip Attachment x 4

$60 – KitchenAid® 6-Speed Hand Mixer

$60 – KitchenAid® Stainless Steel Turbo Beaters

$5,000

∴ With an extra $5,000 laying around, I would first take myself and three of my most important family members for Driver’s Training courses, then cover the costs of the written exams and the Learner’s Licenses. With what was left, I would replace my Dyson vacuum with an updated model, then invest in a few more pieces of KitchenAid® equipment to make baking and business production more efficient.

Knitting Bug

I have been knitting up a storm lately, and I really like it! Mostly baby things, but that’s because they’re cute and quick to knit.

My mister is so silly, because he said it makes him nervous when I knit  baby things. LOL!

Seriously, I have no less than 6 friends who have either just had babies, or they’re newly pregnant.

I also have heaps of gorgeous colorways by Mosaic Moon in my stash, so having lovely reasons to knit garments from neglected skeins suits me just fine.

I’m so happy to have this recent knitting bug!

I Love Sewing and Knitting! ❤

These past few weeks, in addition to working way too many shifts (at my “part-time” job… grrrrr!), I have been madly crafting some organic, bamboo velour cloth diapers for a dear friend of my eldest Elfling. It’s been awesome! :0)

I made 14 diapers for her with some of my hand-dyed organic, bamboo velour; organic, cotton velour; and two different weights of fleece (200wt Wind-Pro and fuzzy). Each diaper has an inner of luxuriously-soft, organic, bamboo velour. Yum! 

This one is my absolute favourite diaper. Squish!

I’ve also been knitting like crazy! My Elflings insist I’m a robot, because they’re certain no real human could knit as fast. I assure them I’ve seen people knit much faster than I. ;0)

This is so exciting! I have a crazy-large stash of wool that I’m finally making time to work through.

Here’s a pic of some of the set I put together.

I just adore the colorway (Deep Space by Mosaic Moon) of this set. It’s bright but gender neutral, and so cozy!

Here’s a pic of the sweet, baby boy wearing the sweater. I have permission to share this photo, and I am super-excited to show how much cuter the sweater actually looks when worn by such an adorable, little person as this wee Elfling. Awwwwwe! ❤

Samhain 2013 Pics

We had an awesome Samhain this year! My Elflings and I designed and carved the pumpkin, and made 40 wicked treat bags for the kids. Sadly, we only had 33 beggars at our door, but I guess that’s up from the 10-15 this area had last year. Woot!

My middle Elfling, Metatron, set her alarm for 04:00 to start her make-up for… the Terminator! She totally rocked this, and I’m thinking she has a definite future in FX! :0)

Another, closer view of Metatron’s incredible Terminator make-up art.

My youngest, Bean, loves the Khaleesi from Game of Thrones, so she decided that’s what her costume would be. She’s lucky I can sew! We hit Value Village,  where I found an old, tweed blazer and some brown, faux suede curtains. Voilà! She is the Mother of Dragons!

My next little Elfling, Momo, wanted to be Skelita Calaveras from Monster High, and although it was easy to find the costume, the wig was a greater challenge, In the end we did find it, which made her day, as well as mine. I’m not super-skilled in the make-up department, but we pulled off the sugar skull look reasonably well. ;0)

Here they are in a nearby mall, where we went to trick or treat.
