goodbye january...


i just love january.... it starts off with so many hopes and plans.... and one never knows in january whether they will be fruitful or not...

the weather goes from a snow storm to the 50's days later... the snow gear has hardly had time to dry when we are pulling out short sleeves again...
today i spent cleaning up the studio and doing finishing touches on some game boards for you... off to idaho, massachusettes and texas by the end of the week...


january i am pushed to decorate. the tree is down and the house is somewhat organized. the perfect time to change what is on the walls... move a large mirror from here to there... placing my collection of kitty babendreier's work so that i always see them....enjoying the scent of my forced bulbs in every room and looking at paint chips (again) for the family room... it follows naturally, moving towards new plans and finishing things. a time to redo for that in between time of spring and birds....

winter has been cold. lots of snow and school days at home. the snow has been to hard to sled some of the time, so we wish for a warmer temp. so soften up... this is the perfect snow for sledding, soft and held together, but not a slush... and the sled flies!

Oh how I wish we had some of your snow Diane!

January leaves me restless ~ spring fever is creeping upon me early this year. Just a couple more weeks of making valentines and I can concentrate on Spring!
