   This is one of my favorite stamps--an older Inkadinkado design. It lends itself so well--kind of like snow--to many interpretations. We've had a lot of snow around our place, and the locals aren't that prepared to deal with it. School has been closed for the entire week and I can only imagine what's going on inside the houses along my street! As for mine, I am content to smoosh and create with Distress Inks, while my son recovers from a virus. We are cozy and warm with a roof over our heads, good food on the table, and we are content.

Beautiful Dreams

   I am enjoying getting the hang of my new Zig brush markers. Love the vibrant colors, and there is so much to practice with a real brush tip. Found a pad of vellum sheets with quotes I bought ever so long ago. Ripped them all apart and decided to make myself a set of cards with them finally. New year, new organizing and inventory taking. Wishing you some beautiful dreams--whether in the daytime or the night.

   I love words. I love art/self-expression. My favorite projects combine a bit of both like this one. So many possibilities...and so many iterations using the same words to infinity loop. Amazing how a little Distress Ink and a few words can take you somewhere just sitting at your desk.

Sew Loved

   It's always difficult to say, "so long," even if it's only for a little while. We were enjoying being a whole family for a while while college daughter was home for break. She's back in class celebrating a new year of classes and people and interesting things to learn. Good for her...yet we miss her. While she was home she made us some lovely, matching mother/daughter fleece tops. Makes me warm all over since there's nothing like something made with love.
   May your New Year be cozy and filled with love my friends--sharing our handmade kindness goes a long way in making this world a better place.
