Knitting, Work, and the Sin Inside of Me.

I'm continuing to enjoy creativity through knitting. I've learned how to make knitted flowers and I'm now attempting to make a never-ending scarf. It's taking a little longer than expected. I haven't sold anything on yet but I've sold a few items through facebook. I think that once people start thinking about cooler weather they'll realize they need some "Comfies and Loves".

The job search continues... tomorrow I start a week long sub job for a Kindergarten class at Reagan in Sanger. I'm excited to work with the crazy little 4-5 year olds again. This should really prepare me for my long-term substitute job that is supposed to start November 10th. I'll be working with the teacher i'll be subbing for during this week.

I am very blessed to be getting all the sub jobs that I am. The principal at Reagan is really keeping me busy and giving all the teachers my sub number.

Jason and I just recently returned from the Couples Retreat up at Hume Lake. It was so wonderful to get away and be in such a beautiful place, hearing about God's truth and how it should be reflected in our relationships. Bob Lephine really challenged me to look inside my own heart and change the sin in me. This is an on-going process....but at least I'm not alone in this. :)

My First Blog

Soo... my sister-in-law is great and blogs about things that are going on in her life and I thought I would too. Jason and I have been happily married for almost 10 months and were loving every second of it. I am currently looking for a teaching job...this is a long and semi-stressful process, but all job seeking is. I did get a long-term sub position that starts in November in a Kindergarten classroom in Sanger. Until then I will be subbing and attending as many kickboxing classes as possible.

I've recently discovered a new hobby. My mother-in-law gave me an idea to knit beanies for the homeless using a knifty knitter. I bought a knifty knitter at the craft store and have made 5 beanies so far. I've even decided to open my own online shop on It's called "Comfies and Loves". It has been a lot of fun enjoying the creative side of life and maybe making a little extra money on the side. Soon I will learn how to make scarves and blankets! Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!?!?!?! :)
