Baby it's cold outside

This crazy Ohio weather has been up and down. One day it was 56 and the next day it was 19! Well, weather aside, I have been sewing sewing sewing up a storm (maybe this crazy weather is MY fault!😂).

I am trying to find a balance between creativity and a clean house! I tend to paint and sew and photograph everything all in a whirlwind and my home ends up looking like a tornado blew through! I am also trying to find a balance of keeping the Etsy shop momentum going while staying present in my family's lives. It is all a balancing act.

The dream of traveling to Europe is close. My mother in law and I plan to travel next spring if all is well. I worry about the political scene and traveling abroad. My mother in law has the same worries. We tend to be in the same page as each other most of the time.

Thank God my husband is fully supportive in all that I do. The living room is a mess...okay. I have peg dolls all over the kitchen table...so what? I have a pile of felt on the couch...no problem. He really is a saint!  So, last night, while he was at school working on lesson plans, I turned up some music, danced barefoot in the kitchen, and tidied up. It felt good - the tidying AND the dancing!

I think my secret to doing everything I do is 1) I never do dishes :), 2) I only do what I can do in one day. Some days, I pray as much as I breathe. Some days, I cry more than I should:) just because I realize that I am indeed NOT Winder Woman! I set small goals and accomplish as many of those as I can. I keep it simple. I drink a lot of caffeine!

Just a few things I wanted to share.

Have a fun and playful day
