Too much of a good thing can be FUN

I am a happy person. My house can be a mess (that's a given), my cooking skills lacking the pizazz I utliized when I was a newlywed, but heckfire, shoot! I like having fun. My days off from work are generally spent running - you know, the errands that are always time stealers, chores that are just plain blah, blah, to which I occasionally say BAH HUMBUG! Did I say occasionally? Well, perhaps a bit more than occasionally . . . anyhoo, I am working on several projects at the moment and thought I would give you a sneak preview.





I finally found the battery charger for my camera, Angie!

Okay, back to play and paint and thread and yarn and putting on a second pot of coffee.

I like Santa! What's he made out of?
Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not sure it's okay to print the recipe...isn't there some kind of copyright thing? Then again, if I say where it came from, that's okay, right?

Blondie your Santas are wonderful! Are you busy crocheting too? I always have several... and I mean SEVERAL.... projects going at once.

Blondie ~ Vintage Primitives said...

yes, dear lana, crocheting an afghan and always crocheting dishrags. Occasionally a knitted one but crochet is mindless activity.

Blondie,
You have to be on my list of the sweetest people I have met (even though not in person)!!!
Thank you for your kind note you left. I am doing ok as is my daughter. We are going back to Wash D.C. on Tues for more testing. It is just the day to day challenges of her OCD that can really bum me (and her) out. Thank you for thinking of us. You are the sweetest!!!!!
