one more new thing. and a tree. March 13, 2008

Filed under: crafting,news,recap — Ren @ 11:11 pm

for those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you may have noticed that my recent posts are all new this and new that. new haircut, new car, new pajamas, etc. i have one more thing to add to that stack. see if you can guess from the picture (it’s easy, really).




yup, it was time to get new glasses. i’m really liking this pair… very sophisticated and trendy. the inside is teal, which is also pretty cool.


this week is my spring break away from school… it is almost over already. i’d love to say that my recent time off has been lovely and relaxing, but that isn’t really the case. i’ve spent waaay too much time at the doctor and having tests and junk like that. i’m not going to go into any more detail here on the blog (though i’d tell if you asked), except to say that i am finally diagnosed on the wrist issue and i’m on medication that will hopefully remedy the problem. yay!






this is treeling. he is from softies. i changed his face somewhat, which i think makes him quite a bit cuter. i justified making him by giving him away to a friend when he was finished. she liked him, too (i think!). he was my first experience with craft safety eyes and i think i really liked those, too. too bad the smallest ones i could find at the local craft stores were 10mm, which seems too big for most of the projects i do.



i have some actual knitting content, but i haven’t taken pictures of it yet. be looking for some kool-aid dyed yarn, a set of potholders, tulip toes, and my first trip to a LYS in my next post (whenever that might be). ^^

    i have sunglasess that have a red tinge on the inside of the frames – sometimes i find it a bit annoying :(

    Love the little tree – your eyes look better – his eyes on the book look like hes stoned off his brain *lol* ;)

    And big googly eyes make toys look cuter, thats why most cartoons, the evil guys have the little eyes :)

    Glad the wrist problem is sorted :)

    Thank you for the comment on my slime :)
    I answered you there as well, btw, one can never comment too much… at least not as long as it’s not spam!

    Your treeling is really cute, and I think the eyes are just the right size.
    If you’re still having trouble finding the right kind of eyes, I happened to come across this post a while ago, with various places you can buy eyes, and there’s also a link in there to another post with suggestions for other things that can also be used.
