Busy, Busy

I'm still around trying to get anything and everything done. Right now everyone has been sick and hopefully on the mend. I also started a College Algebra class so I have a couple less nights than usual. Okay, I know everyone is asking "Why". It's because I want to get a Master's and I will probably need to take the GRE and it's been a long, long time since I've done that kind of math. It's only been 2 weeks but it hasn't been horrible. Really, it hasn't but I'm not going to say too much because I don't want to jinx it. I will wait to tell you either the jubilation I feel at the end or give you a good old-fashioned math horror story when I'm through.

Oh, the other reason I wanted to make sure I posted was I almost forgot to tell you all about the book review I did over at Craft Critique. It is about the Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girl's Guide to Handmade Jewelry. It is one of the most fun craft books I've seen come out in a long time. I even made some things from it (gasp) and finished them and worn them. See the photo to the left. Next time your at the bookstore just take a look. I'm sure you will be reading some of the anecdotes included.

Talking About Punch Needle Tools

I know there are a few punch needle or needlepunch enthusiasts out there so I wanted to let you know about my latest trials. I recently used one of those cheaper needle tools when I misplaced (notice I did not admit to the word lost) my really nice one. Based on my use, I wrote an article comparing the 2 different needles over at Craft Critique. I finally used different sized loops to make a nice little flower. Check it out!
