I went to see this last night with my roommate/ best friend. I left the theater a bit unsure of what I thought,(because it didn't seem like it should be for kids!) but I did like the movie. Creepy, cute, and really well done. I will probably end up buying it when it comes out on DVD.

I won't spoil it for anyone but I will say that it was a really wonderful film and thoroughly whimsical and enchanting to watch as you follow Coraline through the other world. I am completely amazed at the tiny things that were crafted for it. The little knitted sweaters and gloves were so cute! And I adore the designs used for each characters outfits. Of course, this makes me want to attempt making something teeny tiny. But I won't cause it'd make me more blind than I already am! Haha.

Go see it!

He totally knows it.

It's been 2 months since I've posted anything. I keep saying I'm going to make more of an effort to blog and what do I do? Promptly forget.

I will be using the excuse that I have been busy with moving and that I have no internet at home. It's a sad excuse, but part of my reasoning. I am at this moment, blogging from my blackberry, which has become my sanity saver from being internet deprived. Moving out (finally!) was grand, but having no internet or cable is annoying! I really didn't think I would miss it this much. It pushed me forward with getting an unlimited internet and text package for my phone, which was a bit expensive. Totally worth it.

Anyways. I have titled this post "resolutions" so I might as well talk about what they are for the year. Even if it took me 2 months to think of them. Haha

1. Blog more often.
I know, I know. I keep saying I will do this. It doesn't happen. I WILL make more of an effort to post at least once a week minimum. Someone please kick me if I don't.

2. Keep on track with projects.
I seem to have ADD when it comes to knitting. I throw 10 different projects on the needles, maybe finish 1, frog another 5, then stuff the remaining 4 in the back of a closet or bag. The goal for this year is NOT TO DO THIS. I can't promise that I won't cast on more than one project at once. That would be silly and I can't work on only one project at a time! Who does that, really? (Well more dedicated people than me, that's for sure!) BUT I will make more of an attempt to finish current projects. If I get bored enough to put it down for a few months, it must not be all that captivating and will be frogged.

3. Spin more.
I just bought a ashford joy. Impulse buy. Should not have done it, but I do not regret it. Having two wheels and a handful of spindles on top of pounds and pounds of beautiful hand dyed fiber means I should actually do something with it. I will attempt to spin every day, even if its only for a few minutes.

4. Eat healthier.
I ingest way too much crap food. High fructose corn syrup, fast food, and just plain crap! I need to watch my diet and be healthier. This is not a weight issue thing for be, but an all around awareness that I do not want to be like my family and end up in the hospital in my 30s for angioplasty. I am not going to go all health nut crazy and eat all organic diet-y foods. I will try and cut out things like fast food, soda, and sweets. Well, maybe not too much on the sweets. A gal needs a treat every now and then.

5. Get out of debt.
One thing I really want to do is get my financials in better order. I want to have more in my savings than $0.92 (I do now but there was a sad sad period where that really was my savings) I want to have expendable income and stop living paycheck to paycheck. I want all my debt to be paid off! Starting off next year completely debt free would be a wonderful thing. I have taken some steps already towards achieving this goal, and I am confident that I can do it.

I am coming to the realization that blogging from ones blackberry is tiring and slightly painful for the thumbs. Note to self: type less for next blog post. Which means I am off to continue watching Sleepy Hollow and knitting the February Lady sweater. Johnny Depp + knitting + cuddly kitties = <3
