Gilmore Girls Episode: "Knit, People, Knit!"

Tonights Gilmore Girls Episode was titled "Knit, People, Knit!" ...Lorelai was knitting for the knit-a-thon! I thought that was so awesome. It reminds the world that KNITTING IS NOT JUST FOR OLD LADIES! Hahaha! Her creation was a beautiful blue variation of color. She commented about her slippery needles-- that she kept dropping stitches because of them. THEN, the knit-a-thon knitters met a Luke's diner. Way cool. I wish I could have went. There were people everywhere knitting in Luke's diner!!! :)))) UNTIL, Luke declared his diner a "knit free zone" and demanded that his customers "stop knitting or get out". Well then! I think he was just mad, because seconds before his blow up and rant about knitting, he saw Lorelai with Christopher.........ugh. I probably would have yelled, too. He didn't mean to take it out on the knitters... He is just hurt. Deep down he knows he'd love to have a woman (Lorelai!) to knit for him. I think he would look great if he replaced the backwards baseball cap with a knitted beanie. :) Later, the knitting moved to the Stars Hollow "green" -- middle of the town near the gazebo where the knitathon was to take place. There, they had a big festival where everyone was knitting to raise money to save the bridge... a very cool idea. Everyone sported their fine handknitted wear... Taylor in his matching azure sweater, scarf and hat, Kirk in his maroon hat, scarf and gloves, and everyone in so many colorful and beautiful knitted garments. Then... to add to my hatred for Christopher, he ended the knitathon by donating the money that they were looking to earn, thus ending the knitathon. Lorelai was mad... she said "where is the love of knitting just for knittings sake"... awesome quote... I loved how she tried to explain to Christopher that the point was to "save the bridge with knitting". She got onto him for flashing his money around. It took away from the small town charm. Other cool things at the knitathon included a "hand massage" booth, two gigantic balls of yarn, and two gigantic knitting needles which marked the entrance to the "knitathon". (I LOVED Lorelai's baby blue knitted scarf by the way!)

Christmas Card Creation

I have created three Christmas Cards.. and I now have decided that I need to create a fourth... a variation of one, Amy's recommendation. I created them digitally but plan to use them as a photo insert into our cards. This project needs to be wrapped up QUICKLY! :) I plan to get them printed soon... cards need to go out ASAP after December 1st.

I just loved the creation of this scrapbook page... so even though it is on Camden's website I had to put it here, too. The contrast of the black and white picture with the two colored pictures and the colorful scrapbooking scheme just really sets it off. I look forward to getting this one printed... soon. I've been scrapbooking so much lately I have had little time for sketching or much else. I'm still working on different levels of creativity. :)

I created this postcard as one of the prompts from the Creative Mom Podcast. The prompt was to create a series of postcards, but with my busy schedule I only produced one. Instead of sending it, I ended up gluing it into my moleskine... as my first page. To remind me to be a creative mom... and to remind me of my main focus... my son.

I really love doing these pages and they print beautifully. I will post a few of my favorites here...

I'm posting this one because I love that it incorporates a haiku. :)
