Roller Derby= Sock Obsession

I know. It has been a while since I wrote. I've just been so busy with Breakthrough Dallas earlier this month. (That was awesome, by the way!) Then, immediately after Breakthrough was done, our church started rehearsals for the Easter play we've been doing. This is the 6th year of the play, and both my husband and I are in it. Plus, I'm still involved with Roller Derby once or twice a week. Those things plus normal work and church and my etsy shop just means no time!!!!

First off, I haven't shared with you in a while what is new in my Etsy Shop. Right now, my biggest sellers are my Baker's twine. I have it four colors!

Also, my ribbon has been very popular internationally. Check out some of what I have. To see my entire selection, come to Katiebird Studio on Etsy!

Now on to what I really wanted to write about:

Yes, it is true. The more I participate in Roller Derby, the more obsessed I become with socks. Yes, that's right, I said socks! There are so many out there from regular, run of the mill socks you wear every day to fancy awesome socks. Right now, I'm obsessed with thigh-high socks. Unfortunately, the socks I've purchased lately that have said they were thigh-high are only knee socks on me. Yes, that's right. I have LARGE calves and large thighs. Therefore, any sock that says "thigh-high" or "Over the Knee" were obviously measured on someone who is stick thin. Um. . .I am NOT!! LOL! However, I've found tons of socks online that I've coveting! Oh yes! I don't have the money now to purchase them, but in time, I will get these socks! Take a peak! These come from Sock Dreams!

(The very last pair are from American Apparel. They have them in all kinds of colors!!) I've talked to other FMs about it, and they agree. Roller Derby definitely equals a sock obsession!!!! (FMs, by the way, means Fresh Meat. That is what Roller Derby 'rookies' are called.) All the FMs agree. . .socks, stockings, leggings, etc have become somewhat of an obsession if not a necessity of Roller Derby life!!!! Let me know if you have found any socks that you think I might like.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and creative day!

My, How time flies!!!!!!!

Wow, can you believe it is March 1st already? I can't! This year is going by like a whirlwind!

I wanted to bring this up to the few of you who follow my blog: Breakthrough Dallas 2011

This is my Pastor's dream- to bring the Fire of the Holy Spirit to Dallas through an incredible meeting of like-minded Christians. If you at all interested, you need to come to the Gospel Lighthouse Church for this incredible event! There will be some awesome speakers from the Argentine Revival. Click on the picture above to see what will be going on! Come and see how God can change your life!

Roller Derby update: yes, I'm actually participating in Roller Derby! I go to practice for the "Fresh Meat" on Tuesday nights. I'm learning to skate and do various Derby moves, etc. It is great fun and tremendious exercise! I love it. I'm skating with the Assassination City Roller Derby league. Even though I'm not on a team, I'm still part of the league. I LOVE IT!!! The league has a bout (game) on March 26. This will be our first game at our new location: Fair Park in Dallas. Yes, our bouts have gotten so big that we have to move! It will be truly awesome! Come see what Flat Track Roller Derby is all about. Don't forget to buy a ticket- our bouts sell our very quickly!!

My Etsy shop is doing well. Come visit by clicking on the sidebar!

Spring is coming. . .I hope to write again soon!
