Good morning.. I don't know about you but I don't think that I saw much of January as it whizzed thru.. hard to believe a whole month has gone by... I have been reading different blogs and articles about your word for the year.. and I think mine is Balance.. I need to figure out a balance between working, art and just living.... Working 4 days a week is a necessary fact now but so is painting for sales and Art just for the fun of it... I miss looking at something and seeing the potential in it.. it's depressing to just sit and look at everything and have no spark.. Does this happen to you? How are you working everything in? The list thing is not working too good right now.. just looking at it makes me want to nap...lol...or just sit and crochet.. which is ok too I guess... I made a list of how many new babies will need blankets before the fall.. 8 .. can you believe it?? So exciting to have so many blessings coming this year.. So on that note.. blanket for our new baby is done... will deliver tomorrow when I go into babysit..
I did finish my august page in my Creative Sistah's Journal.. For me August is special as it's my oldest daughter's birthday.. after miscarriages and a stillborn son at term I didn't think I would ever have any kids.. She was meant to be here and the joy that she has brought me is immeasurable..I think this is my favorite book of all time.. My Mom had given it to the kids when they were small and I still can't read it without having a cry..
Tolentreasures is having a giveaway.. one of her lovely paintings..if you haven't checked out her blog yet.. do so.. you'll love it! Lots of crafty ideas and fun!
I did get a few signs painted.. can you tell I'm in Amma mode?? lol the most popular names for grandmother's around here are Amma, Baba, Nana and Grandma.. what about where you are? I do get request for Oma occasionally.. so here's a sample of one of them.. hoping to get them up in my Etsy shop soon..those write ups just kill me....and figuring out the postage.. ugh....it makes no sense to me that if it fits in a bubble envelope and slides thru that slot... just because it's not paper in the envelope it has to go as a parcel???? why??? and therefore more expensive to send...
Over the past couple of days it has snowed about 4 inches.. but the temps are rising.. they are predicting around 0c for the next week.. what a wonderful way to start February!!! And at work on Monday I put out the Seed display.. sure sign that spring is coming....Now I know I had things on a list that I wanted to say or do on my next post.. but not sure where the list went..lol So this is it for me today.. I work 12-7:30 today.. funny it's been hard to get used to the shorter hours at work, now we are only open till 9 on thursdays and fridays..which is wonderful!!!
Have a loverly day.. thanks for stopping in..
