I have some exciting news to share.  It is official!  I have been asked to be on the Design Team for Cardabilities Sketch blog.  I am SUPER excited.  I applied a while ago by submitting a few pictures of some cards I have made as well as some other information they asked for. you know life got in the way and I forgot about it.  At some point it entered my mind again and I figured I didn't make the cut.  Then...about a week later I got an email from Karan, the owner of Cardabilities Blog asking for some more info.  Of course I sent it.  Last week I got the official email asking me to be on this quarters Design Team. I will be on the Design Team for December, January and February!   I have always loved the sketches I have found on Cardabilities and can't wait to start my term as a DT member. Make sure to head over to THIS post on the blog to see the official announcement.  There you will see KRISTIN KOTTWITZ~USA as a new Design Team member!  YEAH!

Now...on to a little other news.  I have been busy organizing my craft space and getting my work area cleaned up.  I am also working on another of my new found hobbies which is knitting.  I have to have my the project I am working on finished by Friday as it is going to someone that we are going to see this weekend.   With that being said...I will also be heading out of town Friday for a little more than a week.  I am going to see friends in Harrisburg, PA then heading farther North....a lot farther north to my big ol' hometown of Coudersport to see my family and my hubby's family.  The kids and I are hitting the road Friday and will have a fun filled week. I probably won't be posting much during this time.  But once I am back...I will be starting up again.

Hope everyone has a great week!  And see  you back here soon!

My first Scarf

Hello!  Hope everyone is doing well.  I am doing great!  I am sorry I haven't posted anything lately, but I have been working.   I decided to learn how to knit.  I scrapbook, stamp and even counted cross stitch.  But I was at my friend Erin's house one day and she was showing me a cute project she was working on so I decided it was something I wanted to try.  Thanks to her, my friend Jen and a knitting club another friend Caitlin told me about I have completed my first project.

My friends told me the easiest thing to practice was a scarf so that was my first project.  Madison decided she was going to take over as the first recipient of my new found hobby.  I asked Carli if she wanted and and she laughed and said no. I am guessing it was because there was some pink it it. it is!

Of course it is not perfect and if you look really close you can see some of the mistakes but...Madison loves it and I think it turned out good for my first time.  It didn't take me long either.  I started it this past Wednesday, Nov. 7th and finished it this afternoon!  Now I am ready to start on my next one!

Anyway...hope you are all having a great weekend and hopefully will see you here with a few new cards soon!

Birthday Wishes

Hi All!  Hope you are doing great.  Today I set up a table at the craft fair.  It was okay.  Not a lot of people but I did sell quite a bit for the number of people that came through.

Hubby has been gone on his hunting trip for almost 10 days.  He is driving back now.  He has a 16 hour drive from Michigan so he won't be getting in until the morning hours.  I can't wait to see him!  The girls are ready for him to get home too.

Since my hubby has been gone I have done some card making.  I made my card today for two challenges.  The first is the challenge sketch for this week over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The other was for last week's challenge at the dynamic due challenge blog.  However I didn't get my card posted in time to get it on their challenge blog.

Have a great night!
