YARN!!!

That’s right, there is a new tab at the right end of the menu up there under my blog title. It says “Yarn”. From there you can find lots of great yarn from Ice Yarn, at great prices. I had the option of increasing the prices, and most resellers do. They double or triple the price and then don’t charge shipping. The problem with that is anyone can go to Ice Yarn directly and get a better price. So, I have chosen to simply leave the price alone (I still get a very small percent) and still charge shipping. So you pay exactly the same as if you went straight to Ice Yarn. The best part is, even after you add the shipping cost back into the yarn, it is cheaper then going to the craft store.

Every Tuesday there are unbelievable sales, so don’t miss out!

Moving on I will show you some great projects made with some of these yarns, and I will even offer kits of my patterns with the yarn needed to make the items. These kits will be available at InsaniTea, and through my Etsy store.

Stay tuned for more fun yanie info. In the meantime, don’t forget today’s sale!

Yes, it’s 5am. We are about to leave for my first street fair as a vendor. Wish me luck! Hopefully I will be a little more sane after today, as I have been going non stop to get ready. The next fair isn’t for 6 weeks, so I shouldn’t get so crazy next time. Unless I do really well this time and have to make all new stock. Here’s to crazy!!

I’ll let you know tonight or tomorrow how it went.

In the meantime, here is a cute snap from yesterday morning to hold you over.

Periwinkle! Pumpernickel! Pickles!

So why is it that P words work so nicely in place of other…um…colorful…words?

I went to Home Depot, and bought the shut off valve I wanted for the basement. I was all ready for  quick, easy job. I collected all the things I needed, shut off the water, and grabbed the cutter from the bucket of plumbing tools I had. Or so I thought I would. Maybe I should have checked to make sure it really was there before I went to the store. Uggg! I looked all over the back room of the basement, and the garage. No pipe cutter.

So totally not in the mood to go back to the store, and really wanting to get my Tim Taylor on (did I just date myself?) I decided I would go back to the store tomorrow, and fix something else today.

Another round of collecting supplies, and it was time to get started. First I set up my nifty little flood light, and turned off the circuit to the basement ceiling (which controls all the basement lights.)

Then it was time to remove one of the florescent lights I’ve been wanting to replace.

light-removed

Even though I knew the power was out, I still checked the wires with the circuit tester before I touched them. Always a good plan.

ready-for-a-new-light

Time to put up one of the light fixtures I had laying around waiting for a new home. Somehow, they got packed without their mounting plates. Ugg again. This time I had no patients for a never ending search, and considering this was just for the basement for a “for now” kind of fix, I just cut a scrap of wood to use in it’s place.

measuring-the-light-base

See…works just fine. Now it’s time to connect black to black and white to white.

hanging-the-new-light

Ta~da!! And just like my daddy taught me, if you use the right wire~cap~thingies (OK, he taught me the proper name for them, but I forgot,) there is no electrical tape needed. Now just tuck the wires in and flip the circuit back on!

all-wired-up

Let there be light! I can actually see at my cutting table now. Very exciting!

new-light-installed

As you can see, I have been working on organizing in the basement. There’s still a lot to go, but it’s nice to see some progress.

Wish me luck with the shut off valve tomorrow!

New Home To Be

Well, it looks as thought this is really happening. We have gotten through all the parts that could make buying this house not happen, and are pretty much at the point of just waiting for the closing date. Closing will be sometime in the first half of June (one of the last things we need to nail down.)
So here are a few snaps of the Cape house that will soon become our home.

new-home-to-be

The house was built in 1900, Cape style, so the flew is smack in the middle of the house. Slighty annoying there, but oh well. The garage/stable was build in 1920, and the addition to the back (basement and first floor) was built in 1958. The front porch was enclosed and heat added 20ish years ago. There will be many changes over the next 10~15 years, but the basics are there, and it is in great shape. I won’t mind having company over with the house as it is right now. Big relief there.

new-home-to-be-driveway

That structure in the back? It’s our garage (not the part that sticks up, that’s the house behind this one.) I love the stable doors. However, I have a feeling there will be much restoration involved with this structure. It will be a labor of love. Once the sellers are out and we can get in, I will post some pictures of the uber~cool built~in work table with antique vice in the garage. Love at first site.

new-home-to-be-side-door

Another shot up the driveway (garage sale this weekend, I kinda wanted to go but thought it might be bad form, besides we have great out of town plans this weekend.)

new-home-to-be-garage

And another shot of the right side of the house. The “back” door is actually off the side of the kitchen ~ which is part of the ’58 addition. We will either make a new deck that wraps the back of the house, or move the back door to the back and still make a back deck. There is a very nice size (for this area) back yard. Enough for a good size deck, a play~set, and still room to run around.

new-home-to-be-front

Left side of the house. Once we are in I am going to have to hire a landscaper to come in and tell me what all the plants are and how to care for them. The sellers have some really nice things going on outside and I may as well go with it, at least for now. I’m pretty sure there are some rose bushes up this side.

new-home-to-be-left-side

Closer view of the left side of the house. That side door goes down to the basement.

Well, there you have it. I’ll  post interior shots once it is ours.

Have a nice weekend!

Oh No!!

I have used all my picture storage!! 1023MB (1024MB = 1GB) of pictures on this blog. Wow, that’s a lot. I just paid $5.00 (per year) to get an additional 20GB per year. So that should last for a few years ;^)

Anyway, it may take up to 24 hours for the storage to show, so I guess I’ll try back later to post the snaps I wanted to share.
