black friday mailbag!

top secret knitting+

I really do try hard NOT to participate in the Black Friday madness, but working in retail definitely doesn't help. I heard that the store next to mine had Fuji Instax Cameras for 40% off and I rushed over to make sure that I got one. I shivered with anticipation while I was standing in line; I've wanted one of these cameras for so so long...

I plan on using it sometime next week during our tree decorating party, so stay tuned for that!

Today was such a long day! We ate dinner at around 7pm yesterday and didn't get home to almost 10pm. I knew I had to go to sleep but I just couldn't! I tossed and turned until about midnight, and then I had to be awake by 3:30am to be at work by 4. It was a rough morning; believe me! I should have taken it a little easier on the red wine. With the help of some pumpkin spice coffee and fun music, I somehow made it through the morning.

And after work, I came home to most wonderful things in the mail!!! Four skeins of Lamb's Pride AND some vintage velvet ribbon for a very top secret long term project I intend on beginning in January. All that I can really say right now is that it is VERY exciting and that it will require a lot of hard work.

But, I'm up for the challenge!

How was your day?

I want one of those cameras so bad. Envy? I have it.

This secret project is intriguing... I can't wait!

rick told me about the camera - and as much as i wanted it, i have so many different cameras already. i can't even recall which ones need film, which are almost done and which i haven't used at all.

wah.

good find though.
