Cold but beautiful outside! Great time to craft.

It was cold like normal here this morning.  We've still got about 5 of the 9 inches of snow left that fell last week but the weather is warming up.  Due to the cold snow on the ground but the warming temperatures we are getting created what I call Fog Frost.  It coated all the trees, leaves, branches with glittery, sparkling frost.  My pictures don't do it justice. 

Finished this piece this morning since the weather isn't fit for man nor beast!

Frustrating day

Somehow I've managed to spend most of the day on the phone and gotten next to nothing accomplished.  Tried to do my taxes this morning, nope, need a form from the college. Trying to figure out why they are billing me for dental work for husband whose name is on the bill as the patient only to find out they have wrong patient on the bill.  And so it goes. 

Only bright spot in my day was 2 sales in my Etsy shop.

I hate dealing with all these petty things but what can you do.

Think I'll go stitch.

Happy crafting everyone!

Back to normal

Well, it's January 4th and things are getting back to normal around here.  My daughter went back to college after being home for 3 weeks.  Hubby is back to a regular full time work week, and my son went back to school today.  First time in 3 weeks that I have been home alone.

I hope everyone had a nice, safe holiday.  My daughter got engaged over Christmas.  My husband and I think they are too young but I'm thinking that's how all parents feel.  They have agreed to a long engagement which pleases me immensely.  I want her to finish college and get her degree so she won't be dependent on her fiance.

I've been busy working on new cross stitch pieces and hope to have some finished to list for sale in my Etsy shop.  I was pleased with my shop's success over the holidays.  Hoping this year is even better.

Happy New Year to you all and Happy Crafting!
