We recently had the inside of the house painted. The rooms look so fresh, warm and inviting. Most of my efforts have been in the direction of restoring order. My friend Jayne says that in Feng Shui, you are to move about 27 objects a year. Well Jayne, I see your 27 and raise you 27 more! Nothing appears to be going back to its original location. Of course, then somebody wants new pillows, rugs or something! Somebody has been trying very, very hard not to purchase more "stuff". My creativity has leaked all over the house and I am tripping over it.
In January, my precious granddaughter had a beauty shop type birthday party at our house. Nonnee (that would be me) made the colorful headbands for each beauty to take home. The pattern can be found here and these are super simple to make. (I sewed the flower through the button and directly around the headband) I made a few for myself, using felt I already had and scrounging through my vintage and not so vintage buttons. The last week or so before a trip to the hair salon requires some creativity or the proper use of a hat, clips or headbands. My goal has been to be creative each day. I have been doodling, sketching and knitting. Some days getting a meal on the table has been all the effort I could put forth. My camera and I apparently need some time away from each other these cold, windy days. I am sure a reconciliation will occur as soon as the weather stays sunny for more than an hour. I am curious, are you more or less creative in the winter months?
