How did I ring in the new year? In bed sick : ( I did still manage to stay awake until midnight tho, if that counts) lol.
It's been so cold and there has been so many people sick after the holidays. I am just glad I made it thru Christmas without getting sick. Once this cold hit and the temps kept dropping.... I STAYED IN! Seriously, I haven't left the house since Christmas Eve! Not that I've been that sick for that long, it just felt good to stay in. It seems a lot easier to do that when you live in the country for some reason. I tend to keep stocked up on groceries and things for the most part, so we can go quiet a while without going into town. ( not that town is that far away anyway). It's just nice not to HAVE to go out if you don't want to. Dan has been off for a number of days over the holiday and we are preparing for him to change shifts. This will be an adjustment for both of us.
I made a lot of this hand stitched hearts last year and sold a bunch. I love hand stitching, so I really enjoy making them. Not feeling well, and wanting to stay in out of the cold, made these days a prime opportunity to do a little stitching and spend some quality time with Netflix.
If you are interested, they are $9 each ($2.50 shipping with can be adapted if multiples are purchased)

Today I"m digging into the scrapbook pages I'm working on for hire. Feels good to be back in my studio playing with paper again, since I took a bit of a break preparing for Christmas.
It's still FREEZING out, but atleast the sun is shining so it's pretty. ( and it's WARM inside)
I always love the view from my studio window, no matter what the season.
Yes, so.... BRRRRR...!!!
