My how time flies!

Well I am sure you may have noticed that I have been a little MIA around here lately.  I cannot believe that it is November already! I swear is was just April a couple months ago.  Things on my end have been a bit crazy, we had a huge project come up at work which meant I was just working like crazy over the summer and then it was extension time for taxes and that ended in October and here we are at the start of November.  So I am finally to a point where I can breath and wanted to swing by and give you a glimpse into the last few months.

First up I want to give a quick update on the Etsy shop! Things have been going really well, I am not crazy busy but things are selling.  I kind of like it this way where I am getting an order here and there.  It allows me time to make sure that I am not rushing products out the door.  I will say that the best thing so far in my shop has got to be the Instax Mini Albums.  I can’t keep them in stock!  Which makes me so happy, and also means that I am working on a new cover designs which I hope to have up before Thanksgiving.  As well as a whole new size album which I think should be created just in time for the crazy soon holiday season!  So be sure to keep checking in on the Etsy shop over the next month or so for new products.  If you have twitter you can click on the side bar to the right and follow me and/or if you are big on Instagram be sure to follow me at TheBlurredLinesofSanity. I post pictures of new items as well as behind the scene type photos, a sneak peek of Instagram is also located on the right hand side.

I also want to let you guys know that I have taken up a new hobby of knitting.  No it isn’t just for little old ladies, I honestly had no clue how relaxing this hobby would be.  Then it wasn’t until I was a few projects in that I came to terms with the fact that I have been sucked in.  I started learning to knit back in early summer, I can’t even tell you how it started other than I tried about 7 yrs ago to knit and I did fine but it just never stuck.  But this time I picked up those needles and I haven’t been able to put them down.  I have managed to knit a pair of socks, a blanket, a scarf, & two hats completely.  I am still working on 2 sweaters; these are my down fall so far, because I work on them then put them down to do some other project that I can complete quickly since a sweater is no small feat and they take forever.  But I am sure once they are completed they will be some of my favorite things.  So don’t be surprised if in the coming months there are some knitting related posts.  I signed up for Yarnbox, which is a monthly yarn subscription where they send out a surprise yarn based off what you set as your preferences.  Since I am a few months in I think I am going to start doing reviews on the boxes I get/got.  I would also like to do some posts on just the things that I am working on so that other new knitters can see how things come a long.  I know I like looking at others knitting projects and ideas while I am trying to figure something out.  If you are on Ravelry you can find me here.  I am still learning how to fully use this site but it has been fun seeing all the patterns and getting to see notes from people who have made the item before.

If you have taken up a new hobby or even picked up an old one let me know in the comments! I would love to hear what everyone has been doing or what you are going to be doing through the end of 2014!  I have some posts planned over the coming weeks so please bear* with me as I get back on track!

*Full disclosure I totally had to look up if it was “bear” or “bare” and I learned you use bear because it is for forbearance which completely makes sense once I read it. If I used bare I would basically be asking you to get undressed with me.  So there is that tidbit for the day.
