Yes, it’s true. I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I just took a detour through nomojo land. Life has gotten in the way of all things crafty for me and I’m finally back to it and have so many good ideas it’s epic!
So where have I been?
I moved in with a coworker back in March. I was looking for cheap rent and so was a lady I worked with at my previous employer. We decided to get a place together after only knowing one another for a few months. Oh what a mistake that was. You really DO NOT know a person until you live with them. I’m not going into the crazypants details but let’s just say that was an experience I never want to repeat.
During that time I found a better paying job. Yay more money! Pretty much doing what I have done all my life. I now help people with their phone issues How glamorous! Things are going OK there but I would love to get out of the call center world altogether.
I also started school! Yes I am going to get certified in medical billing and coding. I’ve always wanted to do something in the medical field but, my vision is kind of prohibitive in that field. Would you want a legally blind woman drawing your blood? Yeah probably not. So I signed up with Penn Foster and am happily on my way to making more money.
So what about my crafty life?
I really lost my mojo when I was living with crazypants. No joke. Everything I tried to knit or crochet failed miserably. Like total failsauce with extra fail. Failure to the point of losing really good yarn to knots and tangles. So I just stopped for awhile.
Since I moved out in October I have been a knitting fool. Well, yeah not a fool. I need better words.
I’ve knit a hat AND mittens! Go me. I have also managed to finish projects in 2 months of my Hrry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup classes. GO RAVENCLAW!!!
I’ll post pictures later and I’ll be back with some other epic ideas.
