So, I told you in my Happy Valentines Day post, that I would be learning how to knit, so - I did! well, I learned how to crochet, crochet with beads, and finger crochet. I also learned loom-knitting, it's not really knitting, but it looks cool! They make looms for hats and scarves. There are videos for getting started, doing it, and for casting off [finishing], on YouTube. In the box where you put your search queue, search Mikeyssmail, yeah - it's an odd name, but he has really god videos for the hats, but for the scarves - search Joccy101, she [even though she's like, 10] is easy to understand, "Mikey" - however is not very good with the scarves, but is great with the hats! you will need a nut-pick, and a good sized abundance of yarn. Below, are some photos of the few items that I have created so far:

These were finger crocheted, the one with beads, is a bracelet,and the one without, is a bookmark.

This, is a [teal] hat, that I loom knitted.

This, being a beautiful scarf, I cannot take credit for - My great sister Sarah is nearing the end of creating it.
You can buy the loom set which contains one large loom, one medium loom, one small loom, and one freakishly small loom, all in a set for about,  $12 dollars at Wal*Mart. and the yarn is at an average price at  Michaels craft Store, I'm not sure about Wal*Mart.

90 Minutes in Heaven

this is the cover of the book.

So I'm in the middle of  reading this cool book called 90 Minutes in Heaven, it's about this guy, Don Piper, a christian and a pastor at a church, and he's thinking of starting a new church. So he goes to this conference, and it is few days long, and so now he's on his way home, the meeting had ended early, I have NO clue if it effected the crash, anyway - it's rainy, and he takes a different route home, and as he is driving on a bridge, and as he has later to learn that there had been several earlier crashes on this bridge before, he is driving and a large eighteen-wheeler semi truck, driven by an unlicensed truck driver, comes up and swerves over, pushes his [Don's] car over to the side, with only the side-rail to keep him from falling into the lake/river below, and it pushes the dashboard down only to crush the entire left side of his body, and then the truck goes on to hit two more cars, of which the drivers only had minor injury's, the guy goes on to describe what heaven is like, he didn't go through any dark tunnels, nothing like that, he said he just went straight to heaven. he described the looks of heaven, the sounds of heaven, it is so cool! I haven't read any more than that, I'm only on chapter 6 [but I started it yesterday], I'll put more of what I learn in a comment, as I get further into the book.
He also has another book: 'Heaven is Real'. I haven't read it. this is a picture of him.  whether it was before of after the accident, I don't know.

Author[s]: Don Piper and Cecil Murphey.

Letters To God

This is a cool movie about a boy who has really rare brain cancer, and it's funny in a few parts, but the boy isn't thinking about himself, he's always thinking about others, those of you who have watched this know what I'm talking about.

left to Right: His brother Ben, his friend Sam, and him [Tyler].
His mom, I liked her in the movie. she was a good actress!

 here's a like to watch the trailer: click here

Please leave a comment with what you think! 

And then, here's some funny 'letters to God' that i found:

This one is just plain HILARIOUS!
This one just CRACKS ME UP!
this one I like, I'm guessing it's a boy named Sam.
