Crochet Scoodie Part 1

All week long I have been watching crochet videos and practicing different crochet stitches. So today I decided to put what I am learning into making a Scoodie - hood with a scarf. So far I have been working on the crown which for a newbie is coming out pretty good. The hardest part right now for me is making the crown the right size for my head. Stay tuned for more updates.

Well after much frustration and great advice my edges are starting to straighten out. As the old saying goes practice makes perfect. We are off this week in our homeschool so I will have more time to play around with this task. Now if only I knew what I was making out of all my hard work....

Scrapbooking Fun and Crochet Frustration

I finally made time for something that I enjoy to do and that's scrapbook. The plan was to meet up with a group of scrapbooking ladies but the date got mixed up. So I decided to make the best out of this set aside time and do what I had set out to do. Thanks to my friend Rochelle we had a great time and actually got a couple of pages done each.

So I am trying to learn how to crochet but it's not turning out right. I can't figure out why my sides are not staying straight. It's driving me nuts I have taken this a loose two times and it does the same thing. If you know what I am doing wrong please let me know.

Valentine's Day

We started off our Valentine's Day week with roller skating with friends.

On Valentine's Day I received a beautiful card from my husband and the boys. They also brought me some tasty boxes of chocolates. A close friend brought me some Sanders Hot Fudge and Twisted Toffee & Pretzel Bar. For dinner my husband took me out for my favorite meal steak!

Mummy Experiment Part 2

Well the wait is finally over now for the results. Starting weight is written in red ending weight is written in green. It was amazing to see how each reacted to the mixtures. Most changed was the 50/50 mixture of table salt and baking soda. Starting weight was 40g ending weight 15g. Least changed was the baking soda slice. Starting weight 40g ending weight 30g. Overall most changed to a certain degree.

Papyrus Paper and Hieroglyphic

Yesterday we made our own version of papyrus paper using wrapping paper. We let them dry overnight and trimmed the jagged edges off. Today the boys practiced writing their names in Hieroglyphic. We really liked the end results.

Making Papyrus Paper

Continuing our studies in Ancient Civilization we learned about Papyrus. We watched some YouTube videos on the topic which we found to be very interesting. After gaining much knowledge we decided to make our own papyrus paper by using wrapping paper. It was a messy job but the boys enjoyed the process.

Removing Google+ Integrated Comments

I am removing Google+ integrated comments and reverting back to Blogger only comments. I was receiving comments but the only way you could see them was to click on my comments button. My comment count always stayed at zero even when I had comments. I wasn't aware that if you didn't have a Google+ account you could not comment on my post.  So by reverting back I will be losing all my comments that were made on Google+. But now everyone will be able to comment on my blog.
