Winter Day in the Big Woods

Another beautiful snowy day! Projects are piling up, though the re-organization is in full swing.

Kitty seems to be enjoying the snowfall, too! The altered book projects are lined up, and the knitting is winding down.

These are the latest,
"completed" knits.
Hand Mitts/Fingerless Gloves...all the rage, so my daughters tell me! The KnitWitz are putting the finishing touches on the shawls and lap robes for the nursing home residents. As soon as we get pictures, I will post them on a new KnitWitz blog. Some very talented knitters, and crochet ladies hard at work.
Must get back to work on my
"Creative Chaos"...
Please send those re-organization of art/craft space tips! TTFN, Vicki

The sun is shining on this glorious new day. We shall bask in it and all the muddy glory it provides with the melting of snow. The dogs love mud! Thinking of mopping the floor as a result leads me to the art corner where the re-organization process has taken a standstill...
Anyone out there who has tips on the crafty art space and how to keep it in one place instead of all over, please pass them on. At this disorganized stage, I can use all the help I can get!

Though, I really do my best work when I delve into what I affectionately call my "CREATIVE CHAOS." I actually even named one of my handknit scarves that. Made out of all the leftover balls of yarn of many, many colors. A beauty of a piece with genuine warmth and soul!

Passion's Slave

On this beautiful winter day in the woods, we cozy up in front of the fire and we are grateful for a wonderful family life! Complete with ups and downs and tears of joy and sometimes sadness. But we remain a unit intact, forever bonded.

Everlasting Love

Well Valentine's Day is upon us, and I am extremely happy to say that...

"I am someone's Valentine". It's not always easy, it's not always fun, but after 23 years of marriage, I would not have it any other way!!! Add Image
This is an Altered Book for Valentine's Day! Lots of textured fun with charms hanging inside a cutout box. Vintage lace and buttons, a lovely Valentine ready for gift giving! This book was among my faves, but in an effort to reduce while reorganizing, I have decided to offer this little beauty up at the next
Arty Tea Party! It can be yours for $20.
I will also have Friendship Bracelets (made by my daughter) in gift cards,
all ready for a Valentine Exchange, and some crazy handknit scarves and fingerless gloves!
