Working...

I have conferences for the next three days. So I teach all day, talk all evening and then sleep for six hours and do it all again.

Spring break follows, so I will hopefully be wrangling the mess that is my craft room at some point. Pictures to follow soon.

We are also gathering ideas for our kitchen redo. Will post photos of the sad state it is in now and would love any feedback/tips/inspiration links you can point me to. I am thinking it will be mid-century/organic/vintage mix. Colors I am leaning towards are a buttery yellow, minty green (thanks to my Kitchen Aid mixer) and true red.

Send some ideas my way, please! The husband is making a trip to Ikea this weekend and I'd love to give him a list!

Spring?

It is drippy and gray today. Muddy sky and muddy snow are the picture I see outside of the humongous window in my classroom. Thankfully, the crocus on my desk is wanting to bloom soon.

Starting to sort out the "craft" room. Matilda and I spent an hour digging through boxes and ultimately making more of a mess than what we had started with. She loved bouncing in her activity gym and I kept getting sidetracked. You know how you find this pattern or that catalog or the yarn you bought for this and then suddenly you aren't really getting anything done? That was what happened yesterday.

Did pull out some embroidery stuff. I have a funky book on embroidery for kids that I got from the school library when they were doing discards. All sorts of groovy things like owls and folk art type patterns. Working on a snail to start and then I'm hoping to tackle a large scale freeform piece.

Hope your day is productive (and sunny!)
