Yes, I know that I've failed blogging school...

Good for me there aren't any blogging schools (that I know of), huh?

I've been a bad blogger.  I'm supposed to update you with interesting tidbits and pics of my family and me, and I've failed you.  I can't promise I'll do much better, but I will post a couple of pictures today to make up for ignoring you.

I was invited to a White Elephant "Craft" Gift party.  I needed to bring something I made with my own two hands and put it in the big pot of gifts (hoping someone would want what I made).  I decided to make a "Snood."  What is a snood?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  There are a few variations, but I bought a snood from Walmart while we were in Utah (and I was freezing).  I love it!  I wear it almost every day.

See?





Many people have complimented me on my furry scarf/hat, so I decided to make one for this party.  But, I saw a cute one on someone at Disneyland, and I thought about making a Tiger one (which was only available at Disneyland Tokyo).



That got me thinking, and I decided to make a Minnie Mouse Snood!  Here are some pics of the process and final results.






I absolutely loved it, and I almost cried giving it away. But it was popular and went to a dear friend who I know will love it as much as I do!

So cute! My favorite part was that you totally did the whole thing yourself- including making the pattern. You rock.
