New Phone

So the other day I was on Youtube and all the sudden I saw a Video about this new phone that came out 2 days earlier on T-mobile that is suppose to knock the socks off a Iphone. This in its self made my ears stand up and take notice. We all know I hate the Iphone and any thing that can put the Iphone in its place rocks in my book. The phone is the HTC HD2 from T-mobile. All I can say is as soon as hubby got home and watched 3 minutes of the video on the phone he told me to pick up the phone and get 2 of them. Customer service said they sold out of the phone in 2 days in the stores and online ! she said the phone was on back order!! lord I had flash backs of when the Iphone 3GS came out and everyone  was calling into AT&T CS asking for it. What a nightmare I had with that. Hence the reason I hate the Iphone since I have to deal with it on a daily bases. Anywho, she said I should call my local stores to see if they had one, which I did and they lady said she had a bunch , so I asked to have 2 put back and I would be there in 15 minutes. As soon as we got there and she was ringing us up , 2 other people walked in and bought 2 and they said they had been sent from another store in town to pick theirs up.. so that left 2 phones left for this store, and the girl was really shocked that there were only 2 left...  talk about great timing on my part getting to the store and getting my hands on 2 of them. If you want to now more about the phone just go to Youtube and watch the Videos about that phone..

So as you can see in the above photos the HTC HD2 is alot bigger than my Blackberry Bold 9000. The Screen on this phone is High def and came with Transformers 1 and 2.Its like watching a movie on my big HD tv at home! It has a 5.0 mega pixal Camera which the Iphone only has a 3.2 :) It has the new Swype technology for texting  and writing emails. The only thing it doesn't have that the Iphone has is millions of Apps.The apps for this store are growing and will check up with Itunes.  The screen size is 4.3 inches and the Iphone is 3.5 inches. so there is a lot of difference there. I plan on doing a full review of this phone in the next couple of days here on my blog . The phone went on sale March 24th and I got it the 26th, so there are alot of unanswered questions on how to work this phone. Its a lot different than a Blackberry for sure but I'm hoping that I can get pasted the No key board and luv this phone as much as my Bold. Leave me a comment if you have any questions and I will try and answer them if I can. If you own the HTC HD2 give me a shout for sure. Luv to talk with others that have this phone.

I Won!

So I get up this morning at the crack of dawn, 430am and the first thing I do is check my blackberry for emails and of coarse Twitters. And there it sat, I had a DM on twitter from KnitCave saying I had won her blog contest!!! Well It has never happened that I have won anything along the lines of a blog contest so I am supper excited and can't wait to get my project bag called Hippy Skulls. I will make sure to post pics when I get it for you guys.
I can't tell you how much I love Twitter for meeting the best woman all over the world and crafters. If you don't have a Twitter account I would say try it out and see if you don't like reading about peoples daily lives and learning that a little support and friendship from around the world is a priceless gift.
Big Thank you to KnitCave for having this great blog  contest :) made me a very happy girl ..

What I'm Reading

Picked this book up at walmart the other day and it is turning out to be a good book. The only thing is that the woman that wrote it is from England I believe and it was first published in Great Britain , so some of the words I have no clue what the heck they mean, since they use different slang words than we do. Knitting books like this are so great , just love them.

My Next Project

This is Faro-Easy Shawl from that I fell in love with when I saw it this Saturday. I went ahead and ordered the pattern and a couple other small things I needed and can't wait to get this so I can start. I didn't see any yarn there that was in my price budget for this pattern so I headed over to and picked out some Berroco Ultra Alpaca light in colorway Lobster Mix. I am hoping this is a black with a little of dark red in it,but it is always really hard to tell from pictures. Can't wait for everything to arrive in the mail so I can get started. I hope by the time it all gets here this week I will be finished with my Shawl That Jazz :) So glad my knitting mojo is back .. Happy knitting all.

New Namaste Items Arrived Today

Here is my small shipment I got from . I could not pass on the really cheap items shown here when I saw them. I guess her online store is going out of business so there has been a sale going on for about 3 weeks now I believe. I got the last 2 Notation bags you see here in brown that she had. Got them for 3.00 a piece and then the other 2 items I have heard are really nice to have so I went ahead and grabbed them while she still had some left in stock. I'm sure I will use all of these little pieces of heaven in my knitting bag :)

New Blackberry Housing

Well I finally did it. I changed the housing on my Bold to this white one this morning all by my self :) it was a little nerve wracking since I have never done this before but it came out great. I could not get the track ball out to change it to the pink one i bought, which is really upsetting because I need  a new track ball bad. Think I will take it by the repair shop and see if they can get it out for me. I really like this case, just the G key is a little hard to push but I may take it part again later and see whats going on with that. Let me know what  you think of the White Berry.. Now in search of a new theme :)

Blab And More Blab

well I kinda was sitting here this morning  thinking about all the stuff I have not blogged about and the things to come, so here we go. 
First off about 3 weeks ago my washer totally went out . Don tried to fix it and there was just no hope and I found him in the laundry room kicking and cussing the washer,lol. He was some kind of mad at the old beast and he charged out into the living room and stated we were going washer hunting. And that we did. we went to about 3 different places and ended up getting this washer for a steel. In fact when we went out this weekend back to Lowes were we bought it, it had gone up like 120.00!!!! so I guess we bought it at the right time for sure.

So last week I was in my craft room cleaning up and I really looked around and thought I missed having a work desk. I had a really nice one that was a L shape that I used for years but I gave it to my 10 year old  step daughter for her room along with my old desk top computer. Thinking about it made me text the Man and told him I would like it if he could make me a desk or if we could go buy one. Well the great man that he is said ok and I thought no more about it till he came home and said he found a really nice desk on Craigs list. Of coarse I was thinking the worst since most of the furniture I have seen there is not worth my time. But I thought I would go along  with it. We called the person and they said that someone was coming to their house to look at the desk and if they didn't take it we were more than welcome to come and decide if we wanted it. So we waited and the guy called back and said for us to come on over and look at it. Well when we got there I could not believe how pretty and perfect this desk was. It has never been used and the thick plastic is still on the seat of the chair to keep the fabric protected!! we got it for 75.00. The lady said it has just sat in a spare room unused since they bought it. As soon as we handed over the cash for the desk the other person called to say they were on the way to look at the desk..heeeeeee,, to bad suckers I got it first :) its so perfect for my craft room . The desk has no marks,scuffs , nothing on it. The house it was in was super nice,like a 400,000 house so you would think they would have charged more for the desk. My lucky day I guess, feel very lucky I got it.
This is my new laptop stand me and the Man picked of this week at Big Lots. We got two of them so we can sit in the living room and work. As you can see on the side there is my knitting :) Love this little contraption and thank who ever thought of it. Every nice to have.
We also this week re-stained the coffee table to a pretty almost black to match the furniture and bought new center piece mirror for the living room and a new massive clock to put over the tv. Trying to redo the living room to make it more modern. Next we will buy new recliners and get rid of the old ones.

So on to knitting.. I found someone to take spinning classes from and can't wait to learn. Plus I am going to try my hand at dying yarn for myself :) I have really wanted to do these two things for a very long time but for some reason I thought I had to have someone with me to do so. But I'm going just go out and do it for myself. I guess I will go to and order yarn and dye and see how that goes. I watched a video were you can use kool-aid but I want more color than that is going to give me right now. May be something I try later on. I will post more next week when I have took my spinning class and dyed some yarn.. Happy knitting all.

Knitting Project

Hi everyone. I wanted to post what I am working on these days. It's called Shawl that Jazz . You can buy the pattern on Raverly 
 I'm making it with Patons Classic Wool in Plum Heather on size 10 needles. The pattern calls for size 8 but i'm a really tight knitter so I had to go out a couple sizes. This is going to be my Woobie to snuggle with when I am freezing my butt off in the house or maybe to walk outside a little when it is cool. I'll post pics when I'm a little further in the project . Happy Knitting all.
