Preparing for the Big Game...

What big game, you ask? A hockey game. :D

From a previous post, you now know that I'm a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they're coming to play our home team this year! *happy dance* It's this Saturday. It seems like it was just yesterday that my brother and I were counting down the months until November 1st. :P It was the beginning of July when we found out that the Pens would be coming here. With them being in the Eastern Conference, and us being in the Western, they'll only come here once during the season, if that. Unless we're one of the three Western teams that they play twice next year, they won't be coming here at all next season. So this is a big event for us. :)

So I decided to "Pensify" (a new word I created :D) my camera bag that I'll be taking to the game.

I found some cute little penguin beads at the store, and decided that I could do some neat things with them. So I got a few, and then headed toward the letter beads. I used one of the penguins in the key chain with the letters. End result:

(My favorite player is Sidney Crosby, and he's #87 :D)

The things on the side are neat little things I made with some of my home-made beads. (Have you noticed that I have no idea what to call some of these things? )

And the other three penguins I made into neat little chains:

I also bought some gold hockey player and goalie charms and hung them on the side of the bag, and used a couple as zipper pulls (I guess I didn't take pictures of those, because I can't find any! ).

My favorite are these cute little guys that I made out of clay.

I hung them on some leather cord like I did all of the other things and put them on the side of my bag:

Aren't they cute?? :D

I'll probably make a couple more key chains with player names on them after I visit the bead store again. I only had enough money to buy the stuff for one this time. :)

Lastly is a thing I made on my bead loom. I plan to make another one after I buy a bigger loom. :P I didn't have enough space to do this very it looks a little stretched. I took a picture of the Pens' logo and copied it onto graph paper, and then made it out of seed beads on my loom. :)

5 1/2 Chip Cookies

Ok, I did something the other day that I've never done before...and I will probably never do again. :P
I gave a friend of mine a coupon for a batch of cookies for his birthday...and from past experience, I knew he'd try to pull something funny with it. But I never expected something like this! His request was chocolate chip cookies with no less than 5 1/2 chips per cookie...but no more than 5 3/4. He must have thought about that one for a while...making so that I'd have to cut the chips!
Well, I did it...

Do they look funny or what? :P

Six Random Things...

I've been tagged by Lizzy. For this one, I'm supposed to post six random things about myself...

So, here we go....

1. I'm getting contacts! Yay! On the 20th, to be exact. No more glasses. :D

2. I'm extremely cold-natured. I'm known to wear jackets and long sleeves throughout the summer.

3. My screen saver on my computer is a really cool slide show of my dearest friend Lizzy's awesome drawings. :D

4. I'm addicted to Gatorade. My favourite is a mixture of Orange and Lemon Lime.

5. I have more than 10,000 pictures saved on my computer. Seriously. :P

6. I found this to be very difficult....apparently I'm not very random. :P

Ok, I tag Elf Girl, BC, and Erin. :D
