voom voom shebang

so here's the thing, today is supposed to be all about my healthy lifestyle,
and what I did since last Wednesday to be a healthier thinner person.
yet I have done nothing. I feel like complete crap and have been so lazy.
it feels like something is squeezing my head and it's about to pop.

did you know that it is the first day of Spring?
yeah I didn't realize either, given it is 23 degrees outside.
whatthefuckkkkkkk!!! please warm up already.
honestly, I will take a high 30 degree day just so I can run.

I think I am going to go shopping for shorts and a bathing suit.
that should warm up my mind right?
JCP has the cutest patterned shorts right now.
like absolutely to die for and only $25? I am on it.

anyhoo, since I'm lazy I am going to introduce you to one of my sponsors, Sue.
you can find her button over there ->  enjoy yourselves!!

Hi I’m Sue known as the Crochet Addict

I would like to say a huge thank you to Amanda for letting me post on her beautiful blog!

I have been crocheting since Feb 2011. I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome among other things. One of the symptoms I suffer from is pins and needles in my hands.  Doctors wanted to increase my medication but I decided to do a bit of research first. That’s when I found out about crocheting. Crocheting helps me in so many ways. The pins and needles are reduced as the nerves are being stimulated. You get such a buzz when you finish a project and when someone compliments you it makes your day 100% better.

I learned to crochet from a video on You Tube. I decided to make my son a teddy bear:

Now he isn’t perfect but my son loves him lots!

I bounced about a bit and made lots of different things but nothing really fixated me. Then my son saw a picture of a dinosaur hat and asked if I could make him one. I decided to jump in feet first and design my first hat and scarf set.  Now this is when I became an addict.

Since then I have designed lots of patterns and love coming up with new ideas.

I don’t just crochet and try and share my journey, crafting, reading, family, loves and life as well as any giveaways I find.  I also try and promote handmade things as much as possible.

On Thursdays I show off different items and patterns that follow a theme and have an open thump linky for other people to share

On Wednesday’s I show you what I am making, reading and what is going on in my life. On Friday I show you what I’ve finished and on both days people can link what they are doing.  I don’t restrict any of my linkies to crochet.

On Saturdays I open my blog to guest bloggers. This is a special day that is purely about the guest blogger.

On Sundays I search the web and find giveaways for you to enter. This is the day I try to host my giveaways and give you the opportunity to link to your giveaways.

The other days of the week I give myself some flexibility. I often post my free patterns on these days and any updates with anything that’s different from the norm.

I hope you’ll come & visit:
