Random Thursday....

First off, I want to give a shout out to the fabulous Becky of Strumpets Crumpets for the amazing new blog look here on Hoot-n-Annie!
Crocheted Fox Ears
I have no clue where to even begin when it comes to the technical "stuff" that goes on with making a blog look pretty, but Becky is always there and willing to help! I told her to just go for it and I love how it turned out. Her and I have a little special Valentine's Suprise that we will announce later today. So make sure to check back here or her blog to see what it is all about!
P.S. Doesn't she look adorable in that hat??

One of my goals for the month of January was to start a art journal and actually stick with it for the entire month. So far I am off to a great start thanks to the help of Janel and her new online Journal Class "A New Year, A New You". Here is a glimpse of the pages I have completed so far...

I really am enjoying journaling every night.

I have also been living in my new Toms:
My faves...

and reading on my Kindle I got for Christmas from our friend Devin! I was spoiled this year! I had no idea how much I would love reading on a Kindle!!

This past week my Aunts found some jewlrey that belonged to my Grandma Ruby. We all went through it and took out some pieces that were special to us. I found this adorable squirrel pin and immediately took it to put on my coat. I think it looks perfect next to my Black Apple brooch...

Well, I am off to read on my lunch break! Don't forget to check back later for our Valentine suprise!

We've gone over the fact that we have twin toms right!? they are the best! Oh and my mom and Lauren have the same gold ones lol I need to take a photo of all 3 pairs together! I got eli a pair too! They're plain - so I told him he can decorate them! lol

Your list is everything I want to do too! But I'm to scared to put in list form bc I won't complete them all lol

Love the squirrel!
Devin is so SWEET!! My dad has a kindle and LOVES it! He read like 55 books in 6 month lolol
