I absolutely luv this pattern. It worked up easily. I used the Sweet Roll instead of the Caron Cakes. It took 2 and 1/2 skeins of thid yarn instead of the 2 for the Caron Cakes. I took 3 days (1 more then I wanted to) to finish this. I can’t wait to get this posted to my Etsy. These colors truly popped too (it is called Pixie Pop). #kathiscreations
The Zulu tribe used strips of beads to send messages. Different color beads symbolized various emotions.
Elizabeth of Austria, wife of Charles IV of France, wore a jewel-encrusted gown to symbolize her elevated station in life.
Sailors would fill empty hours at sea by carving elaborate ship models. I wonder if this helped them avoid PTSP as we know it today.
Nothing upsets me more then when someone abuses their authority. I often struggle with how someone who is entrusted with a position of authority uses it as if it is a weapon. I look at the current state of America and see how this abuse of authority is like a cancer. One really prevalent example is our current president. However, he is setting the tone and it isn’t pretty. Police officers are another example of people who are abusing their authority. IRS authorities and even judges are abusing their authority. These are positions that are suppose to be trusted (well as much as you can trust a politician when discussing the president). I makes these statements but of course I have to give examples to support my position. The president bombs Syria, knowing that America is not prepared for the chemical warfare that comes with truly going to war with Syria. Meanwhile, Flint Michigan still has toxic water. There has been minimal effort to fix the problem (and Flint is not the only place with this issue). Not even that there is no effort to resolve the problem, no one is being held accountable for why this issue has become so toxic. Now on to the police (I don’t even know where to begin). I get tired of reading articles about police corruption, police running prostitution rings, police fondling people, etc. What is missing in the process that evaluates a person entrusted to uphold the law? For many years I have watched as judges use their position to wrongfully incarcerate people using personal opinions instead of laws to sentence people. I am not sure if it has worsened or if the surronding instances of abuse of authority just make it more noticeable. One other group that I forgot to mention earlier are teachers. Teachers have a special kind of trust because they are trusted with our children (in other words our future). I have often wondered why it is more acceptable when a female teacher violates a child then when a male teacher does so. Either way it sickens me. How can we weed out the pedophiles and child abusers before they entrusted with our youth? Not sure if with an administration in office like the one we have now that anything will get better anytime soon. The press secretary’s behavior during press conferences is comparable to dealing with a two year olds temper tantrum. Please help me find the sanity.
Recently I attended a function at this spot called Flourish in Baltimore MD. The name of the meeting was A Goddess Deserves a Temple. It was so deep and so in tuned with the universe. In the meeting we discussed having a home where your energy could be positive. Where there wouldn’t be chaos or negativity. Now I pray and I read my bible and some Christians had me scared to explore Chakras and read things about Astrology. However, after going to that meeting and going to a follow up meeting called The Astrology of Loving I felt new. It was like that third eye opened. I had to meditate on this during my prayer session with God and it was like I had a Eureka moment. Why wouldn’t God want me to be curious of the stars and the moon and the soon and how they all affect my life. God created these beautiful things for me to enjoy and embrace. I started to think about how sometimes we get so caught up in the religion and we lose the relationship. The relationship is the most important part of knowing God and His word. I sat down today and finished reading the information about eh zodiac for my birthdate and my zodiac sign and I have to admit it was right on point. Me to the T and it was even kind of scary that someone would know me just from my birthdate. I have felt so in tuned with me since the meetings, it is like I am more in loved with me. I can’t wait to share this new found joy with my loved one.
I am so proud of myself. I haven’t bought a skein of yarn in 2017 (Yay me!). I am planning on moving this year closer to my family and hopefully one step closer to my dream house. I have made a decision to purge and my yarn collection is embarrassing (it is borderline a need for an episode of Hoarders). I have been diligently working on projects in hopes to diminish my stash before my move (if I don’t it is going to take one U-Haul trip for yarn alone). I have made a conscious decision to budget what I spend on yarn. This is hard for me so please pray I keep it up.
