I don't know about you, but I get "wild hairs" to do things. (I'd love to know how that phrase came about. It certainly was well-used when I was growing up in central Illinois.) When these fits come upon me, I've learned that the best thing I can do is to go with the flow-- especially if they have anything at all to do with cleaning. I did have a bit of a cleaning wild hair that I followed up on recently, but the wild hair that flabbergasted me was the one I had to photograph. Take a look at what I've been making....
|What month is it???|
Yes, I'm making Christmas decorations, and I'm really enjoying it. I'm telling myself that I'll be ahead of the game come next December, but what surprised me is the fact that Denis likes my big Christmas mugs filled with happy faces and Christmas greenery. Anything that makes him smile is okay by me! Of course, I can also say that using these mugs, floral picks, jingle bells, snowmen, Santa, and floral foam is creating more space in my storage bins in my craft room... and you know what happens when a crafty yarnaholic happens to have empty storage bins....
Before I start making plans to fill 'em up, I'd best mosey on out to the corral. I have some links with restless leg syndrome. Head 'em up! Mooooooooove 'em out!
