Cat Ear Headphones!

So I'm kind of obsessed with cat ears! I love them sooo much!!!! When I see them on other people I get jealous or envious!  Anyways I have a pair of cat ears I like to wear around in my house all the time and since my son sleeps a lot I have to wear my headphones to listen to my music and take off the cat ears. It would be kind of weird to wear cat ears and headphone at the same time so I thought "Hey! I should crochet cat ears on my headphones" I couldn't find a pattern to make big cat ears so I just messed around a bit and made me own. It's pretty easy really. All you have to do is single-crochet how ever many you want and skip the first stitch every second layer. You have to make four of these and slip stitch them together.

After posting this picture on my Facebook, I got a lot of my friends and family asking for a pair or how much. I enjoy crocheting too much to make a job out of it, so I told them $500 as a joke hehe.

DSLR Remote for your ipod ($9.99)

one day I came across another single mom's blog and she said "The only reason I'd need a man, is to take awesome pictures of me and my son" I totaly agreed because there were many times I wish I had someone to take awesome pictures of me and my baby doing awesome things! So I shared the quote on facebook, not to long after my mom's friend commented "just get a camera remote, you don't need a man!". Since then I've been wishing for a remote for my DSLR, but I don't know where to look for a cheap one in my small town. Couple weeks later I was bored one night after putting my baby boy to sleep I decided to look up photography tips on my app store  and ended up finding a  free trial for DSLRemote, I just had to give it a try!! I was amazed by it! but I wanted the full control of the camera so I got the pro version for $9.99 

What you need: 
laptop/computer
camera cord that hooks up to computer
iPod/iPad/iPhone
to review this  Web Site

It's all pretty simple really. You need to download the program from the website and have your camera hooked up to your computer though. I really like this app though because you can take all sorts of pictures!
here are some examples of using the DSLRemote (notice how I'm almost always holding the iPod)

Carlisle's first new years!


Wishing everyone a happy New Year!
2013 wiill be better!
