First Snow

Last week we experienced our first snow in Pennsylvania. It came out of nowhere. Just the day before we were raking the leaves around our magnolia tree and now they are all buried. What a magical time. This was Baby F's first time really experiencing snow as he was too tiny when we lived in Idaho and we didn't get any snow in Oregon. He loved it and never wanted to come back inside - just like all his siblings. We are looking forward to many more winter wonderland days in the future!

Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

crafting on Do you ever feel like a project you are working on is doomed? Ha. I have come to the conclusion that this one surely is. I finally mustered the motivation to complete the farmyard play mat that I started 10 years ago for C. Six of the squares are good but six more need to be re-knit. I started on the first one only to discover about halfway through that I didn't have enough yarn. I am wondering if this is a sign that I should just give up? Then again my boys were playing with the squares as soon as I pulled them out so perhaps I should persevere.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
