Looks like my friend Nancy made an amazing dinner tonight… and healthy too…
but “maybe-just-maybe” that platter has something to do with it?!
Thanks Nancy for sharing the photo!

Spring is going to get here eventually…

More throwing… more stamping… making homes for more plants!!!

Kicking back enjoying a quiet, white, snowy day for another Mugshot Monday!
Looks like I might need to make some hot chocolate while my new Roomba
is making its maiden voyage around my place! Just a little Christmas Gift to myself…
as I had completely worked my previous Roomba to death!!!

HAPPY MUGSHOT MONDAY… with Instagram greetings from friends in Colorado who were apparently snuggling down on a cold Winter’s night with a mug of something frothy & yummy! Thanks for sharing Kristin & Camden!

Here’s another wonderful gift from one of My Talented Friends…
Sarah Chapman and I had discussed doing a collaboration project “awhile back” where we would work together to make lidded jars. Well, she’s had “plenty of time” to work up a plan… but she totally surprised me when this beauty showed up as part of my Christmas Gift!!! I had totally forgotten about them… but now I LOVE IT!!!

And I LOVE having Talented Friends!!!

I mean… who doesn’t enjoy a few lazy days after the “hectic-ness” Christmas?!
Relaxing, watching TV, playing with friends and enjoying a few yummy snacks
along the way!!!
