Thankful 8 & 9

Guess what? I can't remember the other post I wanted to do from when I referenced wanting to do 2 things a couple days ago.  Oh well.  I didn't get on the computer yesterday, so I didn't post what I was thankful for yesterday. :)

For my number 8, I'm thankful for chocolate.  I love it.  Whoever thought that taking a bean, mixing it with milk and sugar would make a tasty treat was a genius.  I've even grown to love dark chocolate just as much as milk chocolate.  I'd even go so far as to say I enjoy white chocolate even though it isn't even really chocolate!  People and their invention making skills are brilliant!

You know what my favorite visual choclately experience is?  The opening credits of Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory when that fudge is coming out.  I could throw a spoon in that and eat gallons of it!

(It's at about 1:17 minutes)

The next thing I'm thankful for is my craftiness skills.  I am by no means an expert at any of them, but I feel confident enough in the skills that I do have to share them with others.  I love being able to knit, I love being able to decorate cakes, I love being able to make things in clay, I love being able to bake, and I love being able to create anything as long as I put my mind to it.  A common phrase that gets said often in our house is that I like to be good at everything. (definitely not attainable, but I do like to pretend).

I can't find any other pictures of things I have knitted, but I did her blessing blanket :)
I also can't find any of my ceramic pictures.  I think they're all on my external harddrive that can't come out while Elisabeth is playing...that's bad news bears!

**I just realized the plate my cookies are on is a plate I made! yay!  (sorry if you get this twice Mom)

Where's my Barbie cake? That is my all time favorite. Right there with Monica's birthday cake - #30 i think it was.
You are crafy hehehe.
I sure like chocolate but I prefer milk. Dark is just too bitter.
Good jarb on the blog.
