And Now, Something Completely Different!

WiP: Custom order sweater; project bags; SSP

Yes, that's right! Something completely different from anything I've attempted before...*drum roll*...An original design!

I have just published my first design on Ravelry - a lace yoked short-sleeve tee!

Use this link to purchase now:  

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

In other good news, I'm a quarter of the way stocked for the show on November 8, which has more details here: Calgary Fibre Arts Fair.

This is the only show that I will be participating in this year, so if you want to avoid shipping fees on project bags and notions pouches, come on down! (I won't have a lot of knitting there, but I will have the bags and pouches.)

Now, off to work again!

New Items Are Just Over the Horizon!

WIP: SSP (3.33333/9 complete)

Sweater wedge bag, wedge bag, wip bag, Nekozuki Yarns, made in Canada, made in Calgary
So, a few of the projects I'm working on right now aren't completely under wraps...And that bigger bag is one of them!

I've upsized my medium (sock/small project) wedge bag to become a sweater bag, and the retro Marvel print is the product of this! I will have a lot more prints available with an update planned for the beginning of October (this Marvel one is the prototype, to make sure I had the sizing and such right...which I did, first try and everything - I was quite pleased!). Keep an eye on my Instagram for more prints as they become available - this is also a good location to see works-in-progress and the daily life of Nekozuki Yarns!

In other news, I have become much more active over on Tumblr! I have been on there for awhile, but really only started using it again last week. This is a bit more random than either my Pinterest or Instagram, so you may find that you enjoy it more.

And...Calgary has had it's first snowfall of autumn, which is quite sad. I was hoping for a respite to warmer temperatures this month, and although I see that this weekend is supposed to be nice, the fact that snow is already sticking to rooftops is quite disheartening. But it does mean that I get to stay inside and knit on the SSP without feeling guilty! (And the faster I get the SSP done, the sooner I can get the project bag sewing started and done!)

Fingers crossed that it does warm up a bit! I'm not ready to be done with summer quite yet.

All the Projects Are Under Wraps

Nekozuki Yarns, wedge bag, cats
WiP: Super Secret Project (that is all)
In the plans: Another super secret project

That's right. Everything I am knitting right now is under wraps, but I still have a few things to chat about.

I'm heading into the busy season, but the good news is that I do have slipper stock that will be heading into the shop by mid-September (I need to seam and wash and photograph them still! haha). I'm also starting into prepping bag stock, because, excellent news, there's going to be a fibre arts show in Calgary on November 8! Details are still getting firmed up, but I wanted to let everyone know.

Watch for previews of the fabrics that will be available at the show, and if I have remainders after, they will be posted between November 9 and November 15 (just in time to get them for Christmas gifts)!

So keep your eyes peeled! Until then, have fun!

And Now, Kind of Back to the Regularly Scheduled Program

WiP: Non-Felted Slippers, super secret project (ssp)
In the Plans: SSPs (yes, plural), and more non-felted slippers

We did it! Dallas and I are married. And here is a picture to prove it:

You can just barely see my rings. But they're there! Everything went amazingly well, and it was definitely the best day of my life (so far). It was perfect! I'll share some photos of the decorations/interior after we've shown the photos to our parents. 

For our first honeymoon, we went to Victoria (our second honeymoon is Walt Disney World). We visited three different yarn shops, which was fantastic, and they've now pointed Ogden Point. The most impressive on to me was the thunderbird, which went from the edge to the ocean!

Ogdent Point, Victoria, British Columbia, thunderbird, honeymoon

We also went whale watching, where we saw a whole pod of orcas! I have some really cool photos from that as well that I can share as soon as I actually get them off my camera.

I honestly think I might still be a touch burnt out from this whole planning and executing of a wedding, even after a month.

But, that doesn't mean I haven't already planned out stock and done a few fun things.
mewata, silk hankies, spinning, Nekozuki YarnsLike spinning silk hankies! I got these at the Olds Fibre Fest in June 2013 and decided that it was time to finally get them on the wheel. Sooooo much fun, and they are spinning so amazingly. They're indie-dyed by Luscious Luxury (Barbara Robinson) out of Rossland, BC! (It looks like the best way to get your hands on some of her gorgeous hand-dyed yarn will be to contact her via email.) This is her "peacock" set, so I'm going to spin all three colours and then navajo-ply them to get a kind of short-striped gradient. 
wip bag, work in progress, yes those slippers are done And this, my friends, is the start of the crazy Christmas season stocking that I've started. This picture is of one of my own wedge project bags* filled with a pair of slippers that I have already completed! (The picture was taken yesterday (August 18, 2014), and I finished the slippers last night. So, if you see anything you like, let me know! Twitter and Instagram are the best places to get up-to-the minute updates of what I'm doing right now. 

And on that note, I should be more present on the blog here (hopefully) - I'm aiming for one a week right now, so we'll see what happens. hahaha

Have fun!

Katie =^..^=

*This "Kitschy Kats" bag is available here (along with others): Wedge Bags! That bag is currently holding a skein of Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, just to give you an idea of how large it is - it will also work for two-at-a-time (or one-at-a-time) mittens, socks, and etc. I would even say small baby items or small to medium shawls would fit quite nicely.

Hiatus: July 9 to August 5

Hello, lovelies~!

I'm taking an official hiatus from the blog from July 9 to August 5th so that I can focus on the rest of my wedding and fully enjoy my honeymoon!

However, I will have lots of new goodies for you starting this fall, as I expand my product offerings to include more knitted/fulled geeky items!

Hope your have a wonderful month, and I'll talk to you all soon.

Making Things!

WiPs: My Hope; Non-Felted (Chunky) Slippers

I am swamped right now, and probably will be for the next few weeks! (Just over three weeks to the wedding!) So, please enjoy these pictures!

Felted Hair Bows - not quite finished, but I will be adding these to my shop offerings this fall!

These are the table runners that I narrow-hemmed from authentic Indonesian batik. They'll be paired with the Japanese obi I showed you a few weeks ago!

One pair of chunky slippers, coming right up! These will also be in the shop closer to fall (once the wedding madness has died down); these chunky knit slippers make the perfect Christmas gift, and they fit up to a woman's size 10 minimum - they've got enough stretch that they would probably fit up to woman's size 11.

And finally, some knitting for myself - I'm swatching for the Pont Neuf Cardigan by Emily Wessel, although I'm not 100% sure this will end up being that cardigan or the Rapunzel sweater by Anne Podlesak (which was the original plan for this yarn)...So we'll see. I REALLY want the Rapunzel sweater, so I'll probably end up sticking with that original plan.

Anyway! Hope you all have a lovely week, and I hope to be able to update at least for the next two weeks. I will be on hiatus from July 15 to August 5, minimum. But there will be some awesome updates after that!

Have fun!

That Yarn Looked Tamer in the Skein...

WiP: Cozy Calligraphy Cardigan (nearly done - just knitting the buttonhole band); My Hope by Laura Linneman in Zitron Dreiklang (It looked Tamer in the Skein)

This past week and weekend have been so up and down it's been crazy! Between work, and a bridal tea, I had very little time to sit down and knit on anything most days.

However, I made a special point of it on Sunday - I sat around the house (inside and out) and knit on my Calligraphy Cardigan so that I could get the sleeves done (which I did) and start on the button band (which I also did). Reading through Harry Potter has definitely given me something to do while I'm going about mindless stockinette or 2x2 ribbing! haha

< This was Sunday morning as I was starting. 

This is Laura Linneman's My Hope, a pattern that I thought would look really good with this yarn. It is looking fantastic so far (I'm on the next garter stitch section), but the yarn for this shawl, as the title suggests, looked a lot tamer in the skein. I have to decide on beads for this - I'm thinking something that will shine down at the bottom of the cast off, where it's supposed to be beaded. 

These are my first knits from my handspun! I've had this yarn in my stash for about a year and finally decided it was time to use it. The yarn is a bit crunchy, because I over spun/plied in places, and it's a 3-ply, but they'll do for a pair of mittens during the fall when it's not quite full mitten weather yet. I cast on, knit, did a thumb gusset, and it's a picot bind off on both the hand edge and the thumb edge. I love that they don't match, but still have striping (I did do a good job of not muddying the colours, at least)! 

And these are a pair of boot cuffs for a friend that still need a set of buttons on them. This is a trade for the illustration she drew for Dallas and I for our wedding invitations! :) (I'm also knitting her a cabled pair in orange.)
And finally, our guest book! I purchased this from Watermark Bindery on Etsy. It is gorgeous! Diane and Viktor made sure that all my questions and requests were well looked after - this is handbound and signed by Diane, which I think is awesome. And they did an amazing job of incorporating Dallas and my monogram and date into the front of the book. Super happy with it, and I cannot wait to use it at our wedding!

All in all, an all right week - at least I've gotten lots of knitting done, and I'm NEARLY finished the cardigan - I just started the buttonhole band last night, so I should be finished that by the end of the week/this weekend.

Then this coming weekend I can work on that shawl and the table runners. Less than 6 weeks to the wedding! We're right at the place I wanted to be by this point in time, or else I would be panicking.

On that note, who else is doing Stash Dash 2014??

Starting Stash Dash 2014!

WiP: Boot Cuffs for a friend; Calligraphy Cardigan

All right, so here's the plan for the summer!

I am participating in The Knit Girllls Stash Dash 2014 (you require a Ravelry account to access this forum).

What Stash Dash means is that any project from May 23 to August 7 that you bind off is counted as using up "stash."

To be qualified for the prizes in this, you have to bind off a total of 5K of yarn, or 5,468yd.

This includes spinning, knitting, crocheting, etc.

This is what I'm at currently: <a href="">
<img border="0" src=""></a>

So, 915/5468. I'm going to put that ticker at the top of the page, so help cheer me on, please!!

My current plans for the rest of the yardage are:

Another pair of boot cuffs (cabled) (Current carry-around project)
Want to finish: Cozy Calligraphy Cardigan ( Calligraphy Cardigan ) - ~2,016 yd

Want to do:
My Hope - 450 yd
Owls - ~830-850 yd
Pont Neuf - ~2,048 yd

Without boot cuffs = Approx. 6,259yd. Yeah! Let's keep our fingers crossed! I would only really need to do the My Hope and the Pont Neuf to reach my goal. But we'll see. I REALLY want that Owls sweater, especially since I have the perfect yarn AND I knit one for my future niece for Christmas last year...It would be super fast. And considering that we're driving out to Victoria for the get away right after the wedding, Pont Neuf/Owls would be perfect to carry with me!!

I may also be working on another top for Florida, too, though. I just found this one: Feather & Fan Ribbed Tee by Judy Croucher

But the benefit to the other three is that I have the stats for it already...And the Feather & Fan Tee would need new yarn...Although I'm going to put it on my list for my birthday. It might have to wait until after the wedding, though. We'll see. haha

Are any of you participating in Stash Dash?

Please keep your fingers crossed for me that I make it!

It's a Super Short Post...With Pictures!

WiP: Wedding Socks

My shawl, she is blocked! I love it soooooooo much! I"ll make sure to get some better pictures later, but I figured you may as well see it as it was drying! :)

And, I found these beauties at Safeway the other day! I LOVE peonies!!

They've bloomed a lot more since I've taken this picture, too:

Not much else going on. Excited for the weekend so that I can start sewing table runners - I've finally finished the tidy-up that has been going on since January!

Hope all is well.

95% Complete

WiP Wedding socks (that's right, folks, ONE WiP right now!)
Hibernating: Calligraphy Cardigan (to be picked up next)
Planned for the spinning wheel: Finish the white lambswool on there currently and fly with the brown wool I spun way back when. Then, the next braid of the Dragonfly Dyewerx I've had for a long time, which then will become fingerless mitts of some description.
Planned for knitting: Secret project; boot cuffs for a friend. 

Phew! I finished my wedding shawl!! Well, the knitting and the weaving in of the ends is complete - I still need to block out the edging. But I did put it into a bath last night, and it opened up beautifully~! Before the long weekend, I was at 9 repeats, and I knew I wanted to make it larger. So I have ended up with 11 blooms and then the finishing edge, and it looks fantastic!

Friday evening Saturday day Monday night!

It's going to take a lot of patience to block this shawl, so I will have to resoak it and block. But I need some supplies - like blocking wires and pins - before I do so. As you can see, the pattern opened up a lot from when I was knitting it.

This is the Blooming Stitch Shawl by Mary R. White in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk, a fingering weight yarn that is an 85/15 merino/silk blend. I used my Chiaogoo 4.5mm (US 7) needles. It worked up in just over a month (started April 12, 2014). I beaded the very last stitch in the middle of each bloom before working down to through the decreases. This is nice and airy but has a nice weight to it. Cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day!

I am also very glad to have it finished, because I can now work on other knitting projects, and a couple things that have been nagging at my brain to get them off of paper and made from yarn. So keep your eyes peeled for some very different items soon!

In other news, I'm also working on the rest of the stuff that needs to happen for the wedding. Like, airing/dewrinkling the obit we're using for table runners:

These are all used obi from Etsy sellers. They're hung over the pony wall for the second floor of my home. They are the correct width, and only a few need any treatment to make them "more" like a table runner. They are an eclectic bunch, and the middle tables of the sets of three are going to have Indonesian batik runners, but I think that it'll be charming! At least, that's what I'm hoping!

So, watch for a bit more sewing over the next few weeks as I get everything there settled up.

Here is a Picture of a Cake to Show I'm Still Alive

WiP: Wedding Shawl, wedding socks

Yes, this cake is what you think it is - and it was Dallas's birthday cake! Sooooo tasty! Made by Cakeworks out of  Calgary, AB. I'll definitely be going back at some point!

This weekend is the Victoria Day Long weekend in Canada, and it is supposed to rain, which is perfect for me - I want to sit down, pop some movies in, and hopefully get through the remaining 4 repeats on my shawl. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

What are you up to this weekend, if you're in Canada?

They Were Itty-Bitty, Tweeny-Weeny Cross Stitches that She Did for the First Time in Years!

WiP: Wedding socks, wedding shawl
FOs: Nada

That's right. I wanted a complete change of pace, so I started a cross stitch. The funny thing is, I switched from cross stitch to knitting when I first started university because, a) I had screwed up a pattern sooooo badly that there isn't really any way to recover it without unpicking the whole thing. b) I thought that knitting would involve less counting! (Yes, I heard that sniggering. I just wasn't it enough at that point, apparently! hah)
This is officially the first cross-stitching I've done in about 5 years. That, my friends, is about 100 stitches over two hours. And that is my index finger...This project, in which every last inch is stitched...Is going to take awhile. But that's OK. This is currently a zen project, without a deadline, so I can work on it as much or as little as I want. And that's what I needed more than anything. Still, I'm not used to 18 count Aida fabric, which is what this is - generally I work on 14 count, so this nearly feels like petty point to me (although I know it isn't)!

And these, which I'm super happy with right now, are my wedding socks. I love the yarn (Sweet Georgia Sock in Summer Dusk). But I can't wait to have them finished, either, so that I can start carrying around stock items to knit while I walk! (Like, mittens...And dare I sweaters...??)

That's what I've been working on right now! We're down to the crunch, and I'm moving as quickly as I can on my wedding shawl - I'm probably about 60% done at this time - I have 7/10-12 repeats complete at this time, so we'll see what I'm sitting at when I complete the 8th repeat (required)...I'm leaning towards something with at least 12 repeats, though, since it still looks too small right now! I'm also trying to estimate how large it will be once I complete the 8th repeat, since even though I'm not wearing it until after the ceremony, I don't want it to interfere too much with my dress. haha

Anyway! Debates. We're under 2.5 months, which I know is going to fly by! Wish me luck!

Geek Week (Or two...Or for life!)

WiP: Wedding shawl and wedding socks
FO: Baby quilt for friend!

So, the first big news: I finished the baby quilt for my friend! Since it's a spring baby, I backed the quilt with flannel so it's squishy and warm but not super fluffy and engulfing.
The big news after that was a. This latte art is from Bumpy's Cafe in Calgary. So awesome. (And unexpected - I doubt I would get this if I asked for it! So it made me feel super special. Also, I'm reading Chamber of Secrets right now, so it was very fitting.)

In other, other news - it was Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend, which is always a bunch of fun, and this year no less than others.
I got some awesome art for my craft room by Laurie B! I love them all, but my particular favourites are the chibi catwoman and Princess tea party! They'll look fantastic above my craft room table.

I have yet to become a Dr. Who fan, but my friend is, so I saw the panel with Matt Smith & Karen Gillan, which was fantastic nonetheless.

Dallas and I also had a photo-op with Tom Felton, which was VERY brief, but really cool.

And, finally, we saw John Ratzenberger (Cheers & every Pixar movie) on Sunday, which was amazing. It was awesome to hear Ratzenberger talk about his career, since he has been in the job for so long. 

So, busy, but that's really all. I'm working on my new (new) wedding shawl, which is going well - over halfway through the recommended repeats. And I'm just working on the heel for my wedding socks, so I should have something to show you that's knitting related next week!

Also, the next major shop update will likely be towards the end of May, since right now I'm working on a June 19th deadline for my shawl...wish me luck!

Have a lovely day! :)

Busy Weeks Behind, Busy Weeks Ahead...

WiP: Wedding shawl, wedding socks for me, and a baby quilt!

I got my topper today, which I'm super excited about! (I love the fact that I could customize the shoe colour...And they even have itty-bitty wedding bands!!! Squee!!)

This is the quilt top for a friend that's due on May 3rd - I had everyone bring at least a fat quarter to the shower, and this was the result.

And this is me after I had opened all my gifts at my bridal shower! I had a ton of fun.

Otherwise, it's been busy...and my knitting has to be more or less under wraps right now, since it seems like every time I go talk about it, disaster happens (at least in the case of my shawl)! 

Hope you all are well!

New Item for the Shop: Wedge Bags!

wedge bag Marvel Cats Knitting Project Bag WIP WIP Bags Crochet NekozukiYarns Canada Handsewn

You can find the new wedge bags in my shop! Wedge Bags

I love these bags! I have been using one of the cat ones for Dallas's two-at-a-time socks, and I was using it for my shawl this weekend as well!

Speaking of the socks, I finished knitting them!

The intarsia needs some fixing, and they need to be blocked, but they fit Dallas, which is the important part! Phew!

I have finished 7 out of the 8 of the required repeats for my shawl, but I think I'm going to go to between 12 and 16, since it's quite small at this point...And I have until June 15 to finish it. (I need to finish it and submit photos for the Stampede competition by June 19). But it is definitely a relief to be so far along! Hope blooms on the horizon that I'll have it finished in time. haha

So, next in the works this weekend: pouches. And more large box bags...And maybe some more mitten wedges/box bags as well. Although I love how the wedges stand by themselves. 

Katie =^..^=

Welcome to April!

WiP: Wedding Socks; Sewing - wedge and box bags

This photos is from yesterday, but the snow really hasn't gone away, but it is sunny now! And we've finally gone from -10 to -3!! (Practically tropical!)

I didn't get much work done this weekend, because it was my bachelorette and my future niece's birthday...And because I stayed up WAY too late reading on all three nights! haha

I did, however, get a chance to work on some wedge bags, which are a new product I will be offering in the shop as soon as I'm able to get some pictures! (I'm using the cat one with the green zipper on the left...It's perfect for Dallas's wedding socks right now!)

I have also gotten a ton of reading done! The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman is the one I stayed up reading on Friday night.

The ones I'm working on right now are Marianna Meyer's Lunar Chronicles, which I'm loving! Very heavy Sailor Moon accents, but that's fine by me.

Anyway. The next few evenings are going to be spent with Dallas, and then I'll for sure get products up by April 9!!

Have a lovely day!

Yes, There are Instagram Filters in this Post

WiP: Dallas's wedding socks
Different from the Knitting: I'm working on wedge bag details

Monday was our fifth anniversary! So this weekend was a super awesome one spent out in a mountain lodge (Emerald Lake Lodge)...And of course, I had a few minutes in Knit & Caboodle in Canmore - in fact, I still have the yarn in my knitting bag!

I'll show you more pictures of our trip once I get the photos off my camera.

The green in that photo is much more representative of the green in the "I Do" socks I'm knitting Dallas for the wedding...But this is a good picture of the colour work:

And, these pouches are making their way to the US for a retreat. I'll tell you more once the recipients have gotten them!


Unfortunately, my pouch stock was devastated with this shipment, so I'll be restocking pouches and box bags/bags in the next 10 days to two weeks. Keep an eye on Instagram/Twitter to see what prints are coming up! :)

Have a lovely week, my dears!!

Tuesday 2!

WiP: Wedding socks for Dallas, Wedding shawl for me!

Another week gone! And this is what I have to show for it:

These are two-at-a-time toe-up socks for Dallas for the wedding! These are not so glaringly different colours in person; both are very dark, with the toes being navy and the foot being a forest/hunter green. There will be an "I Do" at the top of the sock, along with something extra.

Otherwise, I've been reading LOTS the last little bit, having read both The Great Gatsby and Romeo and Juliet this past weekend...I am also now working on The Catcher in the Rye. I also finished Da Chen's My Last Empress. If you're interested in keeping up with what I'm reading, you can find me on GoodReads!

What are you reading right now? (I'm actually running out of books on my shelf...It's terrifying!)

WiP: Wedding socks for Dallas, shawl for me
FOs: My socks, for me!

So, all was quiet on the blog front again for a couple weeks, sorry! I've been super busy here sorting stuff out for the wedding and knitting, and trying to get as much of my wedding shawl down as a unofficial challenge to myself for Ravellenics.

This photo is pre-rip, when I pulled back to the last line of decreases that I had made correctly. I am, however, now onto the fourth or fifth repeat of this shawl and loving the pattern - it finally clicked with me, which was nice. haha I'm thinking I want to try to get up around 10-12 repeats, perhaps more. Once this pattern clicked, I'm finding it a fairly simply knit - you just need to keep your stitch counts in line for your repeats! This is Handmaiden Lace Silk, Ruby Red colorway, and I'm doing the 7 leaves/8 blooms style, although I do want it around 12 repeats - seems like it will be easy enough to enlarge. I want it big enough that I can wear it comfortably. The silk is going to keep it super light and nice, though. I don't even feel any weight on my needles yet. Kind of crazy!

My "Dory" socks!
This was a week or so ago, when I was halfway through the first sock. Biscotte & Cie, Poisson Tang Colourway.

Valentine's flowers from my sweetheart - these got delivered on Valentine's Day. So sweet!

And my finished Dory socks. I love this yarn. Next pair I make, though, are going to be on smaller needles with fewer stitches. These ones are slightly baggy around the leg. I do, however, still need to block and weave ends in on these. 

These were started with 8 st from Judy's Magic Cast on, and ended with Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind off. I simply cast on the stitches, increased the toes as far as I needed until they fit, and then knit the foot; I did a short-row heel, and then zoomed up the leg in a 3x1 rib for about 6". So happy with them!! :D 

What did you do for knitting over the Olympics? Or did you do anything else crafty?

Katie =^..^= 

P.S. I'm going to try to do a chatter/week-in-review post every Tuesday from now on. Hopefully it works! haha

Oops, I Did It Again...

WiP: Super Secret Projects, Toe-up socks (for me!) - Bicotte & Cie Poisson Tang, Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig

So, the whole blogging thing went way off course! I'll definitely be trying harder this next week.

My weekends and life are going to be pretty busy right up until the end of July, though, so please bare with me. We're down to the under 6 month crunch for the wedding! Eeek! (This is an eek of excitement...and slight terror! haha)

Otherwise, we've just been plain busy. Dallas worked a longer shift last week, which means an extra day from home, but then we went to Fernie for the weekend, and I had a downhill skiing lesson, which was fantastic! Tiring, but it turned out way better than I was expecting it to!

Other than that, just at the 9-5, and working on wedding stuff, and generally trying not to go into full-on panic mode quite yet.

What have you all been up to?

WIP Friday

On the needles: Calligraphy Cardigan, Non-Felted Slippers (by Yoko Nakamura)

I didn't do much work for the shop this week - but that's OK. This is my rest period/time to finish up my own cozy cardigan, so I don't steal Dallas's! hehe
This is Hannah Fettig's "Calligraphy Cardigan" - I started it just before we went on vacation to Disney World, and have been chipping away at it since.

Because I'm taking a break from consistent shop knitting after what I did for Market Collective, this is my time to finish up some projects for myself.

I am also working a pair of non-felted slippers for the shop, but I unfortunately don't have a picture of them! So they'll probably be featured next week.

I have also come to the difficult decision to switch the pattern I'm using for my wedding shawl. So I am now going to knit the Blooming Stitch Shawl by Mary R. White

Picture by: Gia

It's going to be awesome!

Have a lovely weekend, my dears! I'll type at you on Monday. :)

Katie =^..^=
