Let it SNOW

January 20, 2016

I’m well into the flow of the new year. 


All the Christmas decorations have been back in their storage homes for a few weeks. We leave the icicle lights that hang along the roof line up thru February. I love how they look. It’s a cosy welcome when driving up on a snowy night.

I had a fantastic birthday on the 11th. 
I even baked a cake. I hadn’t been in that part of the kitchen for so long I had to laugh as I searched everywhere for pans and measuring spoons. But the cake was great. It’s filled with cardamon and not too sweet. Here’s the link and if you love cardamon, you’ll love the cake.

So with the holidays past, I’ve been working away here in the CRAFTCAST studio. One of my favorite places to think, plan and create.

Nope.
The days just aren’t long enough to do all I want to do. So I make a list of priorities and check them off as I go. I’d be lost without lists. I have to capture my brain explosions of “new ideas” and “don’t forgets”.

I’ve also been working on a secret project.
The first CRAFTCAST craft kit. Not digital. Something you will use in your studio. I’m so excited to show everyone. That’s all I can say about it right now as the patent pending process goes into action.
Must have patience. Ugh.

I love what I do, I really love it. Matter of fact, i’ve always loved my work. So it’s easy to put in the extra hours. Sometimes I can’t tell where work stops and “non” work time begins. I adore all the people I work with as well as the people I meet who take CRAFTCAST classes. The need to create is a great common ground meeting place and I’m so appreciative.

If you know me, you know that I can be a bit obsessive…. I admit it…. but I tend to surround myself with like minded so obsessiveness... becomes the norm.

And without sounding too woo woo, I love the endless process of learning and creating plus the people I meet along the way.

My mother died when I was 15. She would have been 83 yesterday. I didn’t really know much about her but one thing is for sure, I am so grateful for her “getting me to the planet”.

Onward to a fabulous year of creating, celebrating and new possibilities.

ps. I hear we are finally in for a big snow this weekend. I'm stocked up with food and art supplies and I hope you are too. So... let it snow, let it snow..... let it snow. xo :)
