It's a wonderful life.

Just stopping in to chat about my thanksgiving break...
I named the kitten Roxanne, aka Roxy. Mostly because she loves that song...and because roxy is a cute name and she is a cute cat! Thanksgiving was fabulous, I ate too much, saw lots of friends and family, saw Megamind and Tangled. (code: loved them both. hehe)
I was at Winter Wonderland all weekend with Hello Ladies and my boyfriend :-). It wasn't the best show ever, but it wasn't the worst. We've got a year to prepare for the next one now.
I'm super excited because Christmas break is right around the corner. I'm officially finished on the 16th annnnnd Josh bought us tickets for TSO on the 18th. A great way to celebrate my break I think!

I am pretty much just happy about life in general right now. How was your holiday?

Monday Music Inspiration

Two words: Black Keys.

I am in love with them and their sound. I've been in a severely great mood lately and I'm listening to them all the time. So enjoy this song. (seriously, enjoy it...turn it up loud and dance around on your bed with a hairbrush microphone...or something fun like that haha)

Hope you enjoyed that!

Monday Music Inspiration

How about Karen O and the Kids and pretty much the entire Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack...I picked just 2 songs for this post but seriously, you should download the whole album. I can write a research paper to it or crank out about 27 headbands...whatever I need to focus on this music helps me relax and focus.

Kitten Rescue!

I rescued a kitten last night (I'm just calling her kitten for now...) She is so perfect! And she automatically knew what to do with the litter box...thank God! So, I didn't have to clean up any accidents. We're pretty much bff right now, she's been following me everywhere and she slept right up against my chest all night it was so sweet. (Of course, she woke me up at 6:53 by headbutting my face...) I will try to get some pics up tomorrow - when I'm home for Thanksgiving!!! :-)

Until then...what do you think I should name her?? Josh said "Helga" but she didn't like that one. haha

What I'm working on...

Some hats, 

some fingerless gloves, 

and a few headbands. Pics to come soon (I hope!)

Oh and another scarf like this one I made a few months back.

It's so nice to be busy in a good way. I am curious to know what projects (if any) you're working on :-)

There are times when

due to circumstances usually beyond your control, you need to drive across town to get a grande pumpkin spice latte in order to clear your head and write a paper that refuses to write itself. 
Thank you Pumpkin Spice Latte and U2: Rattle and Hum documentary for helping me drudge through that awful paper last night.

smooches: K

Monday Music Inspiration

I'm going to start a weekly spot here on Mondays called Monday Music Inspiration. Two reasons really: 1. if I ever need inspiration it's on Mondays and 2. Music is one of my biggest sources of inspiration.

Today's inspiration comes from an Australian band called temper trap. It's an amazing song called "sweet disposition" made famous by 500 Days of Summer and a diet coke commercial lol. When you can listen to the whole song it is completely inspiring!

So here it is just for you! Have a listen and be inspired.

i love alpaca...

alpaca yarn that is. I found it on sale yesterday so I got 4 skeins to make some hats and hand warmers and scarves for our last couple of craft shows. And I lllllllove the way it all feels. However, I was extremely disappointed because one skein didn't even make one complete hat. So, obviously...they were smaller than I thought when I bought them. I'm going to make it work though! We'll get lots of cute things out of all this gorgeous super soft alpaca yarn.

love krystle

So many ideas.......

If i get this picture situation worked out this weekend I'll get to show you some of the head bands I've been working on! :-) I'm going to put the breaks on the headbands for now and try to crank out some more hats before our highly anticipated show right after thanksgiving. I have so many ideas in my head right now for Hello Ladies, and my film, and next year's Variety Show... I think my head might explode soon if I don't get them out!! I'm off to organize my thoughts before class.

much love!

Costume Party Pictures :-)

the boy and i went to a costume birthday party as Danny and Sandy. It was magical. I'm not going to say anything else just share some pictures with you.

It was so much fun.
did you dress up for halloween or a costume party?? Leave a link in the comment I would love to see your pics :-)!

It's almost someone's birthday...

I just want to say I haven't been blogging much because my computer is freaking out. I think it's on its last's sad because I miss blogging but I don't want to just write with no pictures. Hopefully, Mandy and I have found a solution and I can get back to what I miss and love so much.

In other news:
Josh's birthday is on the 20th and I bought him Call of Duty Black Ops. According to him and several teenage boys that makes me the best girlfriend ever. haha
I sent him this pic this morning and he put it on FB about 2 seconds later. I think I'm an extra good girlfriend because I'm not making him wait until his actual birthday to get it haha. I still want to get him something to open on the 20th...I'm thinking:
because this is his man crush and guitar idol. haha I might throw in a homemade carrot cake too we'll see.

I love birthdays!! :-).

OOOOOH!! ANNND he bought us tickets for TSO for my Christmas present. *sigh* I'm in love.

p.s. if all goes well I will be back soon to show you how Santa Certified my house is and some pics of more projects I've been working on.
