Tattoos and Toes

So how far can a crochet obsession go? Well you can get ink. I got my tattoo 7 years ago, before we left Oshkosh, part crochet trade and part cash.

I like frogs and I love crochet!

Now for the toes, I should have taken a picture right after my neighbor painted Orla's toes for the first time, but we have been busy. I try to buy all natural products if I can and so I found some natural low odor nail polish, it is formaldehyde free. The polish is Go Natural. We have 4 colors and polish remover. So pedicures have become a weekly thing.

I have lots of crochet to share, I just have to take pictures.

Eco Friendly Picnic at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens

A couple of weeks or maybe a month ago, the girls and I went to the botanical gardens. We packed a lunch, in all re-usable containers, and brought our own napkins. We had a brilliant time, doing summersaults in the rose garden in the rain. We also saw the Thomas Moore sculptures which are amazing and wonderful. The botanical gardens is one of my favorite places. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

15 pairs of circles with tails for sewing, $35.00, mailing to Los Altos tomorrow. This was fun, I did not repeat a color, and now have all sorts of color ideas for ponytails.

Orla and I had a great first day of school. In my class we only had one boy cry, and in Orla's class she helped pass out tissues for all her friends missing their mommies. We made applesauce and during free play I crocheted 2 strips of bacon. Tomorrow Orla's class makes applesauce, we make it in rice cookers and my class will make bread.

I cleaned out my closet and organized my crochet office, trying to develop a rhythm to fit in more time for crochet as well as blogging and such.

I will have have to show you the bacon, eggs, bread, and pickles. Stay tuned.
