Lili's Quilt

I finished my quilt barely in time for the baby shower. It's the most fun quilt I've ever made. Little girl things are just awesome!

Building things

My dad has been working hard building a shelf for the junk room in my house. I'm very excited about getting things all organized. There'll be so much space everywhere else once I get things put away in here. I really wanted to find crown molding trim to put around the top half. They don't have any the right size though. We'll make 4 doors for the bottom half using wainscoat. It's gonna be perfect!

Other than that I went to the museum this weekend and I got to hang out with my dear friend Becky after church. We cooked a great lunch at my folks' house and then we watched Eragon.

My dad went to church with me this weekend and I think he liked it. I'm excited about going to church as a family again.

Trip is all planned!

I can't wait to go and visit my mom in New York. The tickets are bought, now I just have to pay for them and save every penny until the trip. It'll be fun!

I ordered my watercolor palette that I've been wanting. I can't wait to get it and fill it up! Then, maybe create some masterpeices. Or unmasterpieces. We'll see.

A New Year

Well, here we are in the beginning of 2009. I've never realy done the whole resolution thing. I don't like to fail. Therefore, I don't make some random vague promise to myself that I I know I won't keep. There are things I would like to concentrate on. Save more, get out of debt, make more friends, find more ways to be involved in my church, etc. I just don't like the idea that people think they're going to completely change their lives in one fell swoop. It just doesn't generally work like that. I suppose it could. Well, we'll see what happens. Have a great year!
