Hot cocoa… that was the order of the day for me earlier this evening.  I don’t know, maybe it was just the thought of the cooler temps moving in or it could be I just like hot cocoa.  What ever the case, it sure tasted good.
So, what have I been up to in the past two weeks?
I tried my hand at a water color of swirling snow.
Then I drew this picture with my oil color pencils.  I think I will make a wall hanging like it for the month of January later in the year.  Then I can hang it in my cubicle next January.   

Have you tried the stress therapy coloring books?  I guess that’s what they are called.  All I know is, it is very therapeutic to color pages like this one.  I lost track of time as I colored away with colored pencils and pens.

I have a three day weekend.  Woohoo!  
I hope to get some sewing and quilting done.  I’ve already started a wall hanging I will use during one of the summer months.  I’m going to try to get it finished and start on a small quilt using a “cheater panel”.  I’m using these small project to practice free motion quilting on my home sewing machine.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.   🙂

I guess that’s all I have for now.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
