Finishing Projects

I admittedly have a track record of "finishing" projects 95% of the way before I move onto something else. As long as the product is functional, I always seem to get sidetracked from doing the finishing touches! I really want to curb that kind of behavior and really start finishing things 100%.

Combing The Wool

I love, love my new Valkyrie combs. They are so nice and easy to work with. Kudos to my friend who found them first and pointed me to them as well!

Let The Spinning Begin!

Well, it has finally happened - I ordered a spinning wheel! My father was so kind to add some birthday moolahs to my piggy bank, making the purchase of a spinning wheel possible. I am very grateful!

New Sheep Art

I love to paint on random items! So, I thought I would share my latest piece for your viewing pleasure. I can't seem to stop painting sheep everywhere...

Another Year…

ahhhh! I feel how this nutcracker rider looks!

Homemade Peppermint Mochas

Merry Christmas Eve! There isn't anything like being snowed in curled up by the tree and fireplace in a fluffy blanket with a hot peppermint mocha. I don't need to run out and go through a line to order one, I can make it right here at home. I am my own barrista!

Brrrr! Baby, It’s Cold Outside…

I am always incredulous when it frosts or freezes here in Florida. It just doesn't seem like it's possible, but it often happens here in Central Florida. Hence, we really have to watch the weather forecast so we are ready for it.

It’s Almost Christmas…

It's that time of the year again!  Well, it's been that time of year again for a while now.  See, I'm normally way behind this time of the year, but THIS year - I'm actually keeping up. I've decided I'm going to start a new tradition, because I like those types of things.  I'm going to make sure I do one Christmas activity each day until Christmas Day. 

The Lemon Harvest Has Begun…

The lemons are ready! Now comes the incessant juicing and freezing of this liquid gold. Now begins the drooling over lemon meringue pie. Now begins the obsession over lemon bars and cookies. I love my lemon tree.
