Crossing off the Years

So much time has passed!
Although my life is not as nearly exciting, I'll carry on none the less.

when i was a little girl, i ate so many strawberries, that i broke out in hives. 
nowadays, i limit my consumption... but it's very difficult.
it was a perfect day to go to the strawberry patch. before i knew it, i had picked over 10 lbs.
a perfect amount to make jam + a couple of extra quarts to give away.

missed March~ but Hello!

whew! March has flown by... 
i've realized that i probably shouldn't even bother with a blog. really. 
but in any case, i'll try to resurrect this lonely place once again.
hehe~ actually, me whining about my absence is a perfect introduction for this artwork by the lovely 
Darcey Young ::

aren't they thee best!?!? i'd love to buy one of each print in her shoppe!
her artwork now graces my etsy shoppe. thanks Darcey!

who is longing for Spring?

i am one who loves winter. with snow. yes, the word a lot of Easterners are cursing.
as kids, we would sled into the wee hours. down the old dirt road {yes- road} from the cemetery to the farmhouse. from the deer path down the side of the mountain, into the orchard. I was just so happy that we didn't have to worry about the bear- he was hibernating!
mom bought us cross country skis. we tried our best to use them as down hills.
i love the muffled quietness after a snowfall. 
the neighbors helping neighbors dig each other out.
i am completely aware as i get older, this may change... 
for now, i will enjoy every snowflake that falls.

in the shape of a pyramid

i didn't think i would be concerned about having a new year's resolution. 
i guess i 've made {a few} for this year.
 i've resolved to make the most of my craft.
to me, this means being true to myself. 
individuality. learning. building new things.

christmas for cat. sad the holidays are ending.

overexposed, but not commercialized.
my simple Christmas tree with pinecones & glitter, and a crocheted garland.

she loved her present! 
and such a funny thing she is!
