Organizing Buttons

Good evening everyone.  It's been so long since I've completed a card that I'm starting to go through withdrawl.  I've been lurking card sites the past couple weeks, just itching to do some coloring and glueing.  My supplies are getting pretty lonely.  The Christmas tree was in my craft space (where my new craft area will be someday), so when we took it down I decided to make a makeshift counter.  Using the top of an old computer desk we tore apart, set on two upright draw units, filled with crating supplies.  Because storage space will be limited I have to really condense my mess.  So tonights project is reorganizing my button stash out of the nice jam jars, into a compact divided unit. 

Well, back to work.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

happy crafting

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my blog friends, near and far.  I have had such a busy year.  My new job is taking up 4-5 days a week.  Cutting down on my craft time a whole lot.  I have managed to make a crocheted blanket for my daughter for Christmas.  She once told me not to make anything for her, but once I saw the Tardis blanket I knew she would like it.  And I was right.  We did have a great Christmas.  I love days when all four of us are home.  Even if we aren't doing things together we are still in the house together. 

New years was  a little more relaxing.  I had three days off. Not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow.  Today hubbie and I went for a snowshoe.  We both got new snowshoes for Christmas, but since we had a green Christmas we were unable to use them till this week.  It started snowing a few days ago, and now it doesn't know to stop.  It was a short trek through our trail in the bush.  The puppy (Maxwell) came with us.  He loves to play in the snow, running off the trail into the deep snow through the trees.  When we got back to the house Max was covered in big snowballs.  He wasn't impressed when I pulled them off.  And even less impressed when he went into his crate to dry off. 

I'm signing off now.  Watching a couple more episodes of the marathon of The Big Bang.  We have been watching it for days.

happy crafting
