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!
