not a blogger

kasey said i needed to blog... i said im not a blogger. But i guess ill show what i have been working on. I cant show all because many are presents and i fear the recipient may see them! cough cough KASEY!

I know its not Christmas yet but..

it took awhile and made a huge mess! oh i have not shown are new place yet... its tiny to say the least.. i was laying on my bed when i took this picture, yes thats my kitchen table.

but the final project turned out sooo cute, rag quilt stockings i love em! im thinking of making more for future little Christensens. I saw these in a fabric store that had a class on how to make them... pay for a class ya right! so i had Kirk draw up a stocking pattern and went to work making it up along the way!


things made

jean quilt top, now waiting to be tied

shelf, excuse my messy counter

new table that i love! barn boards from Kansas = original top + white washed bottom. thanks uncle Rick!

happy graduation present to mckayl before the mirror was put in


your so VEIN~

Amongst the craziness of March (5 midterms in a week, apply for the nursing program and a new job for kirk) we were able to make this ^ i LOVE it, and only 50 bucks- way cheaper and cuter then 200 bucks at hobby lobby- plus mine is bigger and my favorite color (the bottom picture is what the color really looks like) plus also im debating about adding hook on the sides or such as. I mean what girl wouldn't love a HUGE mirror- actually i think kirk spends more time in front of it then me.. i just wish i had a good place to put it. we cant wait to move. Im so glad that i have a handy man, we have LOTS of projects to get started but no room for the finished masterpieces. Kirk is not to excited but i have been inspired by "knock off wood" - check out her blog she is in my friends list there is so many cute things i cant wait to start! I am also excited to learn how to sew! I have soo much i want to make.. i dont know where we will find the time to accomplish all the things on my list... but im determined!


PG 13- for disturbing images

i thought i would pleasure you with a look into what i get to learn about. any takers to guess whats wrong? (just be glad i didn't show you hemorrhoids)



thanks to my pathophysiology and microbiology and biology classes my life is wreck. i have contracted or experienced colon rectum cancer, sickle cell disease, simple cell carcinoma, asthma, heart attach also become somewhat of a germaphobe. thought the worst yet has be ileus. you dont even want to know what kirks gotten. Im not worried though, my teacher she/he (yes she used to be a he) says its perfectly normal.


and here it is

I don't know why i do it. every semester the same. work my self up. cant sleep. cant eat. but they all turn out perfect in the end, after the tears and stress is gone. im trying not to get to worked up this time and today went well.. to say the least very smooth. The only thing different about this one is THIS IS THE ONE. the one where i have to get a finger print clearance card. the one where i must be CPR certified. the one i have to get shots. the one i have to take THE TEST. the one where i have to wait months to know if i made it. to know if all that i have worked so hard for has paid off. the only thing that makes me think i can do it is i don't need my classes this semester to apply so technically i can get C's and it wont effect anything but my pride. And we all know I am not gonna be able to let me self do that. Its a pleasant thought though. Hello Spring 2010 i greet you with apprehension and determination.
- on another note: i love the weather and wish it would keep on raining. its relaxing.

this ones for you kate
