Jamberry are they for me

You might be wondering what are these things, are they really for me. Well are you a fun and flirty kind of girl; or maybe you like things a little more elegant and understated; or are you all about being bright and beautiful? Well with over 300 designs to choose from you are sure to find something that matches your signature style. Using everyday tools like a blow dryer and nail file, you can apply, shape, and bond the nail wraps directly to your nails in just minutes, all from the comfort of your home. Nail wraps not your thing, then how about some professional nail lacquer. Of course it isn't all about your nails why not pamper your hands as well with a variety of nail and hand care options.

Starting a brand new adventure

I can't get over how long ago I last posted on this blog.  Well it is time to bring it back to life, and what better way then with the new adventure I have just recently undertaken.

What is this new adventure you might be asking yourself?  Well I am now an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails,

I fell in love with these after the first time I used them.  It was late February, and I was invited to a party on Facebook, where I was given a chance to try a sample.  Would you like a sample?
Well after that one little sample I was hooked.  The following month I threw a Facebook party and then kept thinking is this something I should do?  Well Fast Forward to July and I decided YES, why not give it ago.

So here I am setting course for a new adventure, and would love to share my journey with you.  I am hopeful that by putting this up here, I will be able to reach out to more of you; since a bulk of my announcements have been on Facebook.  That will even be the location of my launch party.  But, I decided that what is posted there will be posted here as well.  

Of course if you already are aware of this wonderful product you can just go to my website and place your order at any time.  Oh, and if you are on Facebook; give my page a like and you will always get the information straight away.

Wow, I haven't bogged in a long while. I think I'll share my trip, of course pictures will come later. This being my first trip to Maui, I want to remember everything. The flight over the Pacific in first class was wonderful. That quote from the "Seinfeld" episode of "I've flown first class, I can't go back, I won't" makes even more sense. Let me just say very attentive service, a real meal, real glasses, and silverware. Plus a warm cookie. When we landed the sun was getting ready to set. Boy, it gets dark fast. Couldn't see much on the way to the hotel but I will see it soon. Walked just around the hotel grounds a little last night; they look beautiful. Tons of Fiji Torches, two nice looking pools, and right on Kaanapalli Beach, can it get any better. Looking forward to seeing what today will bring.

A recent FO and some WIPs

I recently finished a set of sweater ornaments that my Aunt asked for and decided to use that to get back into posting about my knitting. I followed two patterns to make them up. I used the Minutia and Minutia '08 patterns from berroco. I love any project that allows you to use bits of yarn left over from other projects. All that is left for these is for me to make the hangers that go with them.

On too the WIPs I recently purchased the Tidings of Joy Kit

from for the sole purpose to really make the Popcorn and cranberry garland. It is slow tedious work... anything that is knit in the round on Size 2 needles and starts with 4 stitches I guess would be.... slow going but I'm loving how it looks. Another knitpicks kit I recently purchased was the Design your first sweater I went with the red and white, I really like this pattern kit because it allows you the option to choose the bottom, the cuffs, the sleeve style and collar style. Plus it is knitted in the round and that means no Seaming!!! I am making pretty good progress on this one and hope to have it finished in the next couple of weeks.

You can get all the details at: So go ahead and why not give it a try.

My First Drop Spindle Experience

I have taken the next step. I have now spun some yarn. I have always been amazed at people that make their own yarn and I am even more amazed now that I have tried the whole drop spindle thing. I recently purchased a drop spindle and some roving and figured I would be able to figure out how to do this craft.

So here are photos of the experience:

Here is the roving all laid out. I wonderered how much yarn I would get. I guess it depends on how thick you make the yarn.

Well I removed a part of the roving attached it to the spindle and started spinning.... and spinning..... and spinning.

After some trial and error I actually started to see progress. Yeah I was making yarn! Well as time passed the spindle began to get fuller and fuller. So I knew it was time to set the twist and hang to dry.

And after this I got a finished product.... a small ball of yarn. The thickness varies throughout the ball. But I've purchased yarn like that so I know it is okay.

Now onto what is left of the roving. This time the

process went much easier. Yes it still has its variations; but, I'm happy with what I've made. On this go around I put the yarn I made into a hank!
I guess know I'll have to think of something to make to work this into.

Knit Knack Blanket Squares!

Yeah! They are officially done. After much procrastination on my part; the squares are finished.

When I first signed up for this in May 2008. I thought no problem I'll be able to get 24 squares done in plenty of time for the deadline. But as the deadline approached I knew I wasn't going to make it. Luckily, it was extended till the end of January. Well here we are in February and I haven't mailed them out. But they will be all on their way to their new homes by the end of the week.

I hope everyone will enjoy the square I made. As you can see in the picture they are various patterns. I just couldn't decide on just one, and I didn't really want to get bored by doing just one design.

Now the next step will be waiting for all the squares to arrive. I have already received some... which makes me feel even worse that I haven't mailed any out. Once they arrive it will be interesting to see how long it takes me to put it all together.


Welcome to all who have come to read my blog. Please understand that this is a total Work in Progress. I vow to get better as time goes on.
