I Love Photoshop

Okay, seriously, I love Photoshop Elements. I love it. Such a great Christmas present, thanks Nate. By the way if you are wanting Photoshop Elements (and you know that I recommend it), I know that Costco has a $30 off coupon for it right now. I am still working on our wedding album, it is totally making me miss my long hair though, and here are a few more of the pages that I've made:

I Married a Winner!

So apparently each year Nate's company has a bowling party, they take part of the day and go see who is the best bowler. They also gave out miscellaneous awards. At one point they announced that the next two people to get a strike got a free day off. Well, my handsome husband got one of the next strikes! Now we get the opportunity to have a three day weekend together sometime. Way to go Nate. I always love hanging out with you.

My First Sewing Project

So I finally busted out the sewing machine and made something. I made Nate a Jazz pillowcase and am going to make him a Jazz blanket. The pillowcase I actually finished last week so this post is a little behind. Hopefully this is the first of many crafty posts to come.

Congratulations to my brother Josh (aka Osh Kosh B'Gosh Josh). This week he received a mission call to serve in Lansing, Michigan. He leaves in 2 months and he couldn't be more excited. We are excited for him too, and so proud. Nate has been especially supportive, he offered to care for all of Josh's X-Box games while he was gone. Congrats Josh!

Domestic Skills Needed

So I got a sewing machine for Christmas and it is still in the box. I know, shame on me. I am determined to use it and I need a few ideas for some simple projects. I was thinking about curtains, but if there is an easier beginner project let me know, or even some links to some websites with patterns or ideas. Keep in mind, I am a novice sewer, I will be proud of myself if I get the sewing machine set up correctly by myself.

Now Hiring

I need your assistance. Have you ever done several loads of laundry only to find a sock or two that somehow got left behind? Only to do more laundry later and then the original mates to the socks go missing? Well this happens to me every single time I do laundry. I promise I know how to take all the contents of the laundry basket and put them in the washer. There is nothing left in the basket, but somehow during the course of the day I find random socks. When I find them I always think, "Sucks to be you socks, because you are stuck being lonely until there is enough dirty clothes to justify doing another load of laundry." Yep, apparently I talk to socks. Maybe I am going batty in my advanced age, but I prefer to be positive and think that I must have had an awesome imagination as a child. Either way, I am tired of my assortment of single socks. So here is my offer, come to my house and be a sock hunter. The job requirements are simple, you need to be available each time I do a load of laundry, must have excellent vision and stealth like maneuvers, no minimum age requirement. I would prefer some experience in the domestic arts. The hours are variable and the pay will consist of whatever treats I happen to have on hand and a possible hug filled with gratitude. If you're interested, you can submit your resume in the comment section.
