Random Stuff.

Since I've been a naughty blogger, I've already ruined my goal of posting everyday in 2010.  So, I'm going to double up on a few days.  Just until we're all caught up.  How does that sound?  Like cheating.  Yeah, I know but you guys win out in the end.  So we'll just overlook the cheating part, ok?

I wanted to share with you a few things I found in the crafting closet clean-up.  Truly random.

Coin from Ecuador.

A pretty mess.  This must have been stashed away by one of the kitties.  Surprisingly, I had the patience to untangle it and re-wind it onto bobbins.  Did I swear a lot while doing it?  You betcha!  It should be safe now, unless a little terrorist named Boris decides to run off with the whole ring of metallic floss bobbins.

Awesome chipboard sign, leftover from my days of working at the local store in high school. 
Before California had "The happiest cows on earth!", it was the cheese that made our fine state so spectacular.  My Californian friends reading this will know what I'm talking about.
I used it to cut a template, which will be used to size my fabric pieces for the "I've Been Thinking Of You" Sewing Circle.  (I'll tell you more about that tomorrow!)  I hate measuring stuff, so this way I only had to measure once.  Well, and double check it several times to make sure I didn't measure wrong.

And last but certainly not least.  A jar o' pirates.

Aaarrrgggggghhh, thanks for lookin'!
Now go craft something, mate.

The jar o' pirates makes me giggle! You'd probably find something like that in my crafty space too!

Now I wish that I had bought more when I had the chance. I got them for a buck from Target! I wanted to make one of the melted bowls(like the army men kind) but now there's not enough as some have been lost over time :(
