Here's where I left off almost 2 weeks ago now......

I don't want to clean up the mess because I was RIGHT IN THE 
MIDDLE , ya know?

All the cut strips in the
grays and browns....

W A I T I N G...

Little end pieces ready to fill the corners.....W A I T I N G.....

The last sewn strip--with Helga sighing and  W A I T I N G >>>!!!

Still not completely ready to begin again....S * I * G * H * ....

Here is my Paper Crafting corner...
which I have been trying to  organize...
in the meantime, (in between time--during snow time--
I mean REALLY??? ANOTHER Nor'easter tonight??) ;~(((

Where I  can sit and gaze at the falling snow--O Joy!! πŸ™ˆ
Love love love my IKEA cart....

Just loaded with S T U F F

And this is just part of my

scrapbook and

journaling STUFF, stuff and

MORE Stuff....jostling my fabric 
STUFF for space in my small room...

Just sayin'--;ooo

Here are a few pages out of my illustrated recycled magazine journal.....
This is SUCH fun to do....

AND ...

I have always kept a written journal, but this is a new venture to try to
illustrate my days...just the daily grind...the usual round, same old same old
BUT...somehow when you put a whole week's worth of doings on a two-page spread it really takes on new meaning...
("I'm as restless as a willow in a "snow" storm..I'm as jumpy as a 
puppet on a string, I'd say that I have Spring Fever, but I {really really} 
know it isn't Spring...." File under songs for all occasions...)

And just to add a note:  I hate this Daylight Savings Time switch every year...
I am not hungry or sleepy at the normal times...aaargh...
am I a bit restive
You betcha...:*-}}}
Hugs (and congrats if you got through all of this one!!)

  3. You are a very creative gal like Barb! Well I do love that aqua shelving unit - I want one! sandie
