A Successful Chibication

28 Mar

Well friends, another successful Chibication has come to a close.  I had a lovely visit with Chibi and moM (they came to visit me this time), and as per last year’s Chibication, I thought I’d make a list of the things I learned…

1. My darling Chibi is a talented little thing!  Look what she made for me!

 

pretty!

She didn’t want to have to travel with the frame, so we ironed it all out & framed it once she got here.  She says the wings were the hardest – full of sparkly back stitches – so I took an extra shot of that.  Thanks for the faerie, Chibi!  I love her!

2. Taking a break from the interwebs wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be.  My virtual fish went belly up.  My virtual crops died. My virtual Smurfs had nothing to eat for a week.

 

Hungry Smurf is... still hungry, actually.

My inbox piled up.  And you know what?  NOTHING BAD HAPPENED. None of my Facebook friends noticed that I didn’t “like” anything they’d said for a week.  No one sent me a scathing “how could you not have written back to me?” e-mail. The Smurfs didn’t make a peep.  Actually, now I think about it, Farmville sent me 10 free farmcash to get me to keep playing.  Hmm… I should take a break from the interwebs more often, I think.

3. I have absolutely no will power.  (Translation: I now own ALL the Sookie Stackhouse novels, which I bought to put on my new Nook, which I bought because moM and Chibi said I should, which I believed because I’m a total wimp when it comes to peer pressure).  I also rearranged my Netflix queue and am now expecting season 1 of TrueBlood to arrive any time.

 

YUM.

Yes, I realize this is mindless vampire fantasy romance drivel. Yes, I did read all ten novels in a week. Yes, the HBO series is basically…um… well, it’s HBO. You know what it is. And worst of all, YES, I really enjoyed it.  (Somewhere my literature profs are all cursing me and spitting, I’m pretty sure). At any rate, Nooks are good for the environment. It was a green thing to do; at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

 

Reading NookBooks = Good for the Environment. ...right?...

4. I can get my Chibi to agree to pretty much anything if I ply her with Indian food first.

Nomalicious!

 

Needless to say I didn’t get much hookery accomplished, but I did have a fabulous visit!  Hooray, Chibication!

Free Pattern Friday: Granny Star Ornament + Netflix Freebie

15 Oct

Hi friends!  Sorry I missed yesterday… I had a big post all set to go about my first ever visit to a Hobby Lobby, but then Husband called, and then I got to visit an adorable little baby, and then I got distracted, and then Zoltar overheated (again) and had to be put to bed for the day.  Please forgive me.  In the meanwhile, here’s the pattern for the granny star ornaments I made while in transit for Chibication.   Enjoy! })i({

 

super cute granny star!
