230 Project - Week 13




Day 86: Monday August 8, 2011



Day 87:

Another shawl I made for my mom. :)



Day 88:

We went to visit my dream kitchen from Ikea.



Day 89:

Kayden's Bday Party!



Day 90:

Apparently, according to the guy who was going to level our
house, there is a lake under the house that is caused by our
A/C condensation. Old A/C unit = TONS of condensation (aka - water)
that has to drain and instead of it draining into the plumbing
like new houses, ours just drains to the outside then it runs underneath
the house causing a freaking lake.

SO! I had to put a bucket under the pipe and empty it every
hour or so until we could run a hose from the pipe to my front yard.

Once the lake under my house dries up I'll be able to get the
house level.

Meanwhile my floors are all jacked up and some of
the doors in my house don't close. Grr!



Day 91:

Lily!




Day 92:

Apparently (apparently I just love that word) if you search
"soap sock" on Etsy my items come up in the top results!
Yay!

230 Project - Week 12



It really does seem like I am forever a week behind
on these photos. :)



Day 79: Monday August 1, 2011

I've started selling some yarn on Etsy. I've
bought a few lot sets of yarn off of Ebay and there
always seems to be a few yarns in the lots that
I have no intention of using and so I've added
a Destash/Supplies section to my Etsy shop.



Day 80:

This is a custom order I've completed that was
an absolute nightmare. The customer requested this
set of colors, should be no problem, right?

WRONG!

Apparently, Bernat Yarns makes new colors every season...
the problem is that you cannot buy last season's colors
from them. At all. Not online, not in stores, no-wheres!!!!

Luckily I had juuuust enough yarn left over from a
previous order to make this set of washcloths.



Day 81:

Hi. My name is Maria and I'm addicted to buying
school supplies.

I've decided to go through my extensive stash and donate
all the supplies that I have yet to use. I will keep one (and
only one!) of each item and then donate the rest.

I've had these colored pencils and crayons since I was
in high school. Yeah.



Day 82:

Ee! So excited!

This is my newly designed soap satchel!

I finally learned how to crochet in the round and I've
added these nifty little cinchers that take care of
the whole knot tying fiasco.

I love these cinchers! They're fairly cheap and make it
so much easier to scrub yourself! Now you
don't have to worry about your knot coming loose while
you're scrubbing! I love it!

Day 83:

It seems like I've been working on this shawl for forever!

I love this deep plum color!



Day 84:

I went shopping with Mom and we stopped at a Ross
and I saw these lovely shoes.

It took me 24 years but I have finally discovered my
inner shoe lover. :)

They were super cheap (like $15) and they
are amazingly comfortable. I usually don't go for
peep toe heels since they tend to pinch my feet, but
that is probably because I always buy shoes with a 4+" heel.
These heels are a bit lower but that is okie-day with me!



Day 85:

Mom's birthday! I intended to get a pic of the cake
but never got to it. This ICanHasCheezeburger will have to
do. :)

230 Project - Week 11



Let's just dive right in, shall we?



Day 71: Monday July 25, 2011

Ol' dog!!! This is Lessa, daddy's little princess.

She was our first dog and she also happens to be
the best trained one. We had more time then. :)

But she is getting to be a little old, well she is more middle aged.
:) She sleeps more, it takes her a little more time to get on
and off the couches and she is packing on some serious
middle age fluff. But she is still awesome and sweet.





Day 72:

Couponing day!

First transaction was around $55 and I was able to knock
it down to $18 (that includes some of the Extra Bucks)

Second transaction was around $50 but I had EB from the
first transaction and a ton of coupons so I got it down to $14 but
then they gave me a $10 gas card and then they gave me
$2 in EB to use on my next purchase so really it was like $2.

Go me! :)




Day 73:

I heart instagram. :)

and I heart this cat.




Day 74:

We were irresponsible adults this week and went to
see three movies. We saw Captain America, Cowboys
and Aliens (Daniel Craig's ass was maaaaade for wearing
chaps) and Harry Potter in 3D.

I'd love to give you critiques on each film but I really
suck at movie critiques lol.




Day 75:

More instagram fun-ness.




Day 76:

Aaaand more couponing.

Saved around $30. The killer were the razor blades.
They're like $15!!!!! I had a coupon, but still. Final price
came out to around $19.



Day 77:

Scarlett...le poof.
