I've also relisted two items today, trying to keep the place stocked up for the sale.
Is anyone else having a black Friday sale? Comment and tell me about it!

Saturday, our internet went out so I had to wait until Monday to get it going again. I hate not having internet! I even put my shop on vacation mode because I hated the idea of someone buying something and me not being able to get it shipped in time. Also, I didn't know when we'd get it hooked back up. There was a chance we'd have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving. But now my store is up and running again, just waiting for swarms of holiday shoppers.
I'm getting everything ready for Thanksgiving. The family is coming to my house again this year, which means a whole lot of work! Today I'm focusing on getting my carpet shampooed. But I also need to make sure both bathrooms are cleaned, and the bedrooms are presentable...it's coming together slowly, and looking nice around here! I borrowed a big table from our church as well as some chairs. I also have a Thanksgiving tablecloth and really nice centerpiece. It's looking quite festive around here!
This week, I managed to view these movies:
--Star Wars: The Clone Wars
--Here Come The Littles
I'm also nearly finished reading:
That's it for this week, God bless!!

I'm very pleased with my three latest items! I have two crocheted Christmas cowls in my new "Winter Wonderland" series and also a crocheted hooded scarf. All three items can be found at www.jenniferwhitedesigns.etsy.com. Check them out!

This week has been pretty crazy, with crocheting Christmas gifts and getting a few items done for my shop. I also found out this week that my mom has breast cancer and is having a mastectomy this Friday. Because of that, I don't have much else to talk about...because anything else that happened this week seems small and not worth mentioning.
I have a couple new items to list in my store...I'll probably get that done tomorrow, as long as I have time to get the photos taken. Anyway, looks like that's it for this week...sorry for such a short post. Here's the short list of movies I watched this week:
--G.I. Joe--The Rise of Cobra
God bless, everyone!!

Finally, something new in my shop!! This cute crocheted bear started out as a Christmas gift...but then I realized I really didn't need it. I had enough gifts for everyone. So after debating whether to keep it for myself or not, I decided to list it in my store. Make sure to check it out at www.jenniferwhitedesigns.etsy.com

Lately I haven't been posting much besides my Tuesday ramble...but I'm taking a little break from my store so I can make things for Christmas. I'm hoping to get something made to list in the shop, but for now I'm just relisting what's already there. This week I relisted six items and I'm hoping someone buys them!
I had some knitting trouble a couple days ago and it resulted in saying bye-bye to a perfectly good poncho that was half-done. It was a nice poncho too, it had a cabled piece that went around the neck and the poncho part flared out from there. The problem was two pairs of circular needles broke in the process and I didn't have another pair of needles to put it on...plus I dropped a ton of stitches in the process. I think I managed to get the stitches picked up, but without another pair of needles, I just gave up. (I realize I could have just placed all the stitches on scrap yarn...but for some reason, I'm just now considering that option...now that it's too late.)
So, I swore off knitting for the week and I'm focusing on crochet. I've made a couple of neat scarves, one of them with a hood. Not sure what I'll be making next, but guaranteed I'll be hooking it!
Hmmm, what else happened this week? I found out my sister-in-law is pregnant, so now I'm expecting three new nieces or nephews! Both my sisters are pregnant too, so the family is definitely growing!
I also had the flu this week...for about three hours. Anyone ever have the three hour flu? Me neither. This was the real deal though. Headache, chills, nausea...the whole bit. Then my hubby prayed over me and I took a nap. When I woke up I was all better. Praise God!
Well, I think that's it for this week. As usual, here's my list of movies (which will be getting smaller from here on out because we switched to a smaller NetFlix package)
--Paul Blart: Mall Cop
--Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
God bless everyone! Have a great week!

Halloween was a lot of fun. We took Chloe trick-or-treating and then headed over to the church for a Harvest party. We played games and did a lot of laughing. Chloe won third place for her costume--Princess Leia, and her dad came dressed up as Darth Vader. It was fantastic.
This week I've relisted a couple items in my store, but have made nothing new...I'm really trying to get some stuff made for Christmas and I've been spending some of my time focused on getting my novel rewritten. Last year I participated in the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which takes place every November and challenges you to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. I finished the novel and am just now getting around to the rewrites. So, that's taken a little bit of my time. I will try to get something new for the shop soon.
This week, I watched these movies:
Faith Like Potatoes
Little Miss Sunshine
Have a good week everyone!!

Here's my daughter as Princess Leia. Like her "buns?" They were made with two crocheted bowls with a strip of knitted cable sewn around each, with a crocheted chain holding them in place, and tied under her chin. I thought it worked out pretty well, but I have no idea what we'll do with them now that Halloween is over. So, it's into the costume box they go! I just thought I would share them, because I was pretty proud of them!
