FAVORITE WINTER THINGS

Children's christmas sings
Smell of wood fires burning
Seeing the fall leaves on the ground
The crunch of the leaves walking to the mailbox
Decorating for Christmas
Wrens visiting the front porch
Pine boughs and holly berries
Real sausage and sage stuffing
Waking to cool, misty mornings
Hearing birds and rabbits scratching in the leaves
Afternoon tea by the fire
Evening cider by the warm hearth
A wonderful book
The touch of a familiar hand
The smell of bayberry and cinnamon
The sound of a child's joy at the first snowfall

THE COMMUNITY LIBRARY


Trying to get an image.

Trying new stuff

Really am having a lot of fun playing around with the different facets of this program. Made my second letter for the banner swap, looks like it is really going to be sweet. When I finish this I am going to make one with fairies for someone. Mary has really helped me out here. Ok going to watch Ameriican Idol.

Didn't get around to any projects today, but spent 2 hours looking for Frida Kahlo ATC cards I sold on ebay. Finally found them and mailed those off with some extras.

"Wish I had a river I could skate away on"

Been listening to Sarah McLachlan today and was caught by the song River. Some days are like that. In the real world where (I'm not going to skate anywhere) I made a 4 sided tunnel book today. Added some applique to my newest quilt and bought some groceries. Have some stuff on ebay, doing nada. Bought some new lights for the entry and ate dinner. Jerry is watching the packer playoffs. They are winning right now so he is a happy camper. Have a friend that went to Green Bay for the game, it is a blizzard there. Ordered some german glitter glass for a valentines book I made yesterday. Received my decal paper to make little fairy bottles. Saw some really nice work by a group member named Linda East. Paper doll, so cute-all green.

Working on a tunnel book today

Spent the day working on an Asian inspired mini book and a chinese food carton box to put it in. Turned out cute and will put up pictures later. This afternoon I did a tunnel book with instructions from The National Museum of Women in the arts. Kind of cute but next one will be better. Then I went to the Altered book group and found a listing for a site by Cecilia Sharpley. What a site!!! Spent a lot of time there. dinner now.
