Let’s call it January

IMG_20181228_193351 Beginning 2019 pretty much like I ended 2018

Slightly off center, in hopeful muddy pinks & greys, with a little cut & sew, chapped hands and of course a smidge of the grumps.

I hope 2018 was kind to you and that 2019 is even more so 💕

Bright Moments

Taking a moment, slowing down, drifting back & forth between all the things that give me joy

a little crochet,

a little nerdy stitching for him,

a little collecting, sorting, sifting & snarking,

organizing like with unlike and scissors with scissors.

Giving a quiet moment to memories, to sadness, to the background ache,

to the melancholy that creeps in when something good, bad or indifferent, ends, begins or stays the same.

Bright studio moments for not dead plants & for giant cones of red wool,

and for creating tiny treats, small enough for a mouse’s pocket.

Moments for loving grouchy grinches & for just plain love,

and maybe a little extra moment for the love of 8 homemade butter mints.
