done and done and...


Is it just me or is 2016 off to a kind of wobbly start?  I mean, things are OK around here and there is a lot of creative energy in the air but there is also an underlying sense of being overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time.  Too many projects piling up, too many meh results.  My plan for this year is to sort through what is working and what is not and then to pare down and chose projects wisely.   Pictured above are the mittens I finally finished (and love), this bread which was more involved than expected (but smells amazing) and three paintings I am working on (today). Is your year off to a smooth start or do you feel it too?

She asked for a pop of orange...

::scrap garland::

My daughter moved into a new dorm room over the weekend and she mentioned she needed a pop of orange to set off her purple bedding.  I poked around Etsy looking at paper circle garlands and fabric flag banners but didn't find anything that seemed quite right.  So yesterday I made a quick trip to the fabric store, cut a million 15" strips,  and then Sage and I made this scrap garland last night.  It's bold, funky and homemade and it should add just the right amount of cozy to her new space :)

Back in the groove-

Happy New Year people.  I've started the new year off with a flurry of activity.  Listened to 'Station Eleven' while taking P back to school and loved it.  Am reading 'A Little Life' for a book discussion at the this awesome little bookstore.  Have made this yummy and healthy dish twice in the past week for lunch. Am just finishing up Tiny Objects No.4. And... I'm wishing on each an every tiny star that your new year is off to a lovely start.
