Everything that has been happening the last few months while I was away volunteering...

Knitting:

Scarf. I also got to teach a few other girl's to knit, which was really fun!! Cherish, one of the girls and also a really good friend, took on real quick and made a bunch of things.

Crocheting:
The first thing I crocheted: a scarf for Keziah. Thanks to a wonderful girl named Cheyenne, I learned to crotchet while I was away.

I hope you enjoy all of these pictures!!!! Some new things I learned while gone was arm knitting, crocheting, office work [of course], computer work, dancing, basketball [and I went to my first basketball game which I would never have thought to be fun. I became a fan of sorts - at least for the kids I knew ;)], and other misc things and ideas.

I leaned to write a lot more, and I feel my writing has grown even more over the last few months. I'm actually finishing stuff I like!!

I discovered some new music. Pentatonix, Owl City, and a couple singles, You are Loved by Josh Groban and A Thousand Years by Christina Perry.

And I read some great books. A couple that especially stand out to me are Science Explained and Calico Captive (By Elizabeth George Speare).


I did a couple of interviews through my blog. I really enjoyed doing these and want to do way more in the future!!

The Blessed Tees shirt blog post here.

A guest post / interview with a great friend that sings. She writes her own songs and plays the guitar!!!! Last I heard she was number 5 on ITunes in the singer / songwriter category.

And an interview /review with some friends about a survival movie they made. This post has become my most popular post receiving over 500 views (10- 20 times more than my other posts) and sold at least 15 DVD's.


And, so, that is a bit of my three months while gone!!! I learned a lot of new things, met a lot of new people - and made tons of new friends, and did a lot of new things, besides staying really busy :).
