The thing about living in Virginia is that you don't usually get your Christmas scenery until long past Christmas.
The snow came Saturday and started melting Sunday, so even though there are still little patches around we didn't get any snow days from this batch.
|Once I stop posting it's kind of hard to do it again, for some reason. I post pictures on flickr at least once a week, though. If they have people I try to post them on facebook, too.|
I spend plenty of time during the week clicking around flickr for favorites, looking at contacts' photos, commenting, and reading comments back. If none of my contacts have posted, I'm over to a group. But it doesn't work unless I'm taking new pictures to put up, too. I'm loving this set of diptychs today.
On Sunday I had the most people I can have over at one time without using paper plates and sitting on the floor. I did borrow bowls and some silverware, though. It just wouldn't work to use the fine china with plastic silverware.
I got a (much-needed) new camera for Christmas, and I'm having fun playing around with the manual settings, but I'm not quite used to them yet.
Classes started this week, so I'm back to having deadlines, but hopefully I'll continue to check things of the craft to-do list too. I'm working on a lap quilt a bit at a time, but it would be nice to have that out of the way waiting for binding soon! I'm not a fan of unfinished projects.
Why is it that when I'm supposed to be hard at work or studying I get the best ideas about craft projects that I could be doing? Exactly when I have no time to do anything about them. Except for a few breaks maybe, but those are hardly long enough to finish them, and even the breaks may be disappearing soon.
I could loop this song over and over all day long today. And it is a little weird to me that I'm enjoying a cover of a Bee Gees song right now (How Deep is Your Love by The Bird and The Bee, if you're curious).
Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're
smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and
relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you
solve other people's conflicts well.
level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes
know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can
get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things
Your outlook on life is bright. You see good
things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates
you to see them get down on

|I have this little habit of buying art from etsy and blogs. I'm finally getting some of it hung on the wall, but it's really hard to get pictures of it without reflections from the glass. |
The bottom one here is the first one I bought, from The Small Object.
Here are a few more, click through to the flickr photo to see the names in the notes. Ordering from etsy is such a great experience- the packages are always beautiful, and a lot of times there are little extras slipped inside, and I usually feel like I know some of the personal background of the artists by reading their blogs and looking and their flickr streams. I've bought originals and limited edition prints, but I love hanging postcards and notecards, too.
Here's something a little different, a couple totes I made recently from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. I won't say how long the fabric was cut out for these before they were sewn! I bought the yellow at a thrift store in Rockford last Christmas, I think. One was sent to Nicole for the Muslin Tote Swap. I'm excited to get hers in the mail now!
