These pages are full of what makes Penny Penny. Lots of crafts, rants, and fan girling.

Penny, you've graduated college....

...what are you going to do now?
Mike asked this question Wednesday night. I replied with "the dishes!"

I decided champagne was a suitable way to celebrate.
Details of my 6 year Bachelor of Science in Geology:

*I met the man of my dreams and married him. A MRS and a BS!
*I was put on academic suspension, worked a crappy night job, and came back.
*I changed medications for my depression countless times.
*I changed therapists four times, and for now I don't need one.
*I saw a 100 year hailstorm, and how it destroys a car.
*My grandmother died and I picked up knitting to remember her.
*I started a knitting blog.
*I made two queen sized quilts.
*I survived my own personal Summer of Hell: field camp. This is a personal point of pride. as I was so sick I almost quit and got a Basic Science degree. Sometimes I think I probably should have quit, but I'm stubborn.
*I started spinning.
*I made some fantastic friends.


Pam, grandma to Riley, the new little guy, made me this quilt, which I snuggled under to finish my thesis. This is the first quilt I own that wasn't made out of fabric scraps or bedsheets. So cool.
Who's under there?


I have so many exciting things I want to do! Kirsten needs more clothes, Monica's coming back from England today, I need to spin until my leg cramps, I wan to rearrange the closets and sort the house, play with Fimo, make countless loaves of bread, burn all my class notes...I have so much to do!

Like a fine wine
