Friday Finishes

Welcome to Friday Finished Linky party number four! Last week there were a couple of entries, let's hope for a few more this week!
Link up on Fridays with any finish you wish to share: craft, homework, dinner, baking, getting the cranky child to bed - well you get the idea.
This week I got a grand total of one project finished:
The Santa Reindeer! I really think he's super cute, and he was a pretty fast knit. I am planning on selling him at a Christmas market next month...I think he'll go pretty fast!
His coat was kind of fiddly, and didn't photograph too well. I am planning on getting another one done in darker colors.
Ravelled here: http://ravel.me/NataliesKnits/sr
And I need to bang out a few animal hats and some stuffed elephants...by the eight of next month. Wish me luck!
Plus a special order of ten soap caddies by December 24th!

A quick update on No Spend November:
It's been going pretty well, but the more money I save, the more I want to spend it. I did slip up once and get a gourmet to-go coffee. But it was kind of a necessity on that particular day...plus I got a small, so that's ok, right? Haha, excuses, excuses.
I did suspend No Spend November very briefly to purchase a new phone. However, it was something I was planning on buying anyways, and the one I wanted went on sale by over half, so I kind of decided it may be a bit stupid not to get it right now.
Plus, with it, I can take credit cards at the artisan markets. So if I sell two things at each market that I otherwise wouldn't have sold, then the phone pays for itself.
I have been doing pretty well overall with it, and thus I have decided to expand No Spend November to Don't Buy December! It's a good thing I got the bulk of my Christmas shopping done last month, isn't it? And I have all the yarn to make anything else for Christmas presents.

Hi! I found out about your linky party from "Michelle's Romantic Tangle" blog. Thanks for hosting this! I put a Friday Finishes button (so pretty) on my blog : )

I actually finished TWO projects this week so if you have a moment, check out the post right before the linked one to see my "Sixteen Sweet Purples" quilt!

Thanks and Happy Friday!
