Moving to wordpress


I have decided to move to wordpress, as I think I'll be able to create the site I envision, at least until I spring for a real website ;)

You can find me at: http://absolutejeanius.wordpress.com

I'll leave my ravelry blog link up for a couple of weeks, to give the few of you who read me regularly time to change your RSS feeds. I am not deleting my blogger blog, just moving :)

Thanks for coming along for the ride!

Happy Birthday, Baby!

.
My Peanut turns 3 today. I can't believe it's been that long, and how much we've all grown since then.

She loves to sing, and read. Drawing on her chalk board or paper is always a fun activity, with happy faces and trees featuring prominently lately.


She has become a little more opinionated about what clothing and shoes she wears (her 'princess' shoes and her 'cool' shoes being favorites), and is pretty adamant about not wanting her hair cut. When asked, she usually pulls it close to her head, sometimes like a chin strap, and tells us that no thank you, she likes it long. ;)


She wanted a princess cake for her party, which was the 11th. I managed to make a castle cake (despite having to bake the cakes a second time and being up until 4:30 am that morning) and we had good friends, good food and good fun.


Happy Birthday, baby, keep being amazing!

The Sucky, the Bad, the Sad...

Just found out tonight that Jasons' boss is 'closing' the business and the guys are out of jobs as of June 30th.

Apparently his boss didn't want to meet the demands of the air freight company to get better, more reliable trucks for the drivers, so instead let the contract get sold off to the other contract company. The owner of that outfit is giving interviews to Jason and his coworkers next week. The good part is he is offering insurance, savings/retirement plans, and generally better benefits. The downside is that they will more than likely take a pay cut. That is something we can't afford to do, unless we sell our home, which would probably not sell for what we owe + closing costs anyhow. Also, he would still have his 45 mile commute. I am hoping he finds a job much closer to home.

I will probably let the etsy shop fade out as I won't be able to justify restocking when we might not even be able to stay in our home. I'm going to try not to stress about this, Jason will do enough of that on his own. I need to just be here for him.. and try to keep our spending to a minimum. Hopfully it won't come to me having to destash my knitting/spinning suplies to pay bills. God, how selfish of me!

Etsy Treasury!

What is an etsy Treasury??
The Treasury is a member-curated gallery of short-lived lists of 12 hand-picked items each (plus four alternates). It functions as a high-demand (and pretty!) promotional tool that many devoted Etsians fight to get.
One of my handdyed Falkland Top braids (Mango!) was handpicked to be apart of an etsy Treasury. First time, and such a pretty treasury! Thanks fluff4ewe for including me :)

Etsy Shop Update

This is my biggest update... Lots of pretty hand dyed Falkland Top. This fiber is so soft and fluffy! I dyed up a braid in pretty purples, lavenders and pinks for me.. I can't wait to get to it!

This wool is soft enough to wear next to you skin, and will also felt great too! Falkland is very similar to Merino, with a staple length of 2.75-4.5 inches (70-90mm), and is a fiber count 56s (26 micron).
