Claire is off to school and Benjamin is still in bed. We are getting back to "normal" after a wonderful, busy holiday season. My parents were here for our first Christmas is Texas. Then we traveled to St. Louis to visit Jeff's parents and celebrate Grma M's 65th birthday. We had tons of fun and everyone feels happy and blessed.
The decorations are still up, but the mountain of laundry has been cleaned, folded and put away. Small accomplishments. Any anyway, we traditionally leave the decorations up through the full season of Christmas right to Epiphany, so we'll pack up this weekend.
Even this little treasure will have to be put away (in the trash).
I must get into my studio this week. I can barely open the door. For the past several weeks the piles of stuff have been growning. I have been able to continue to fill book orders and I got the paperwork done to enter four quilts in the Dallas Quilt show. Other than that...
Next up in the studio: finishing a small set of postcards and an article for Artitude. Two small commissions for a friend's neices. Some small birthday gifts. And the tall skinny, which is not small. I checked out two Gustav Klimt books at the library yesterday and I am totally inspired.
