Little Things

017A new bag of buttons from the thrift store to add to a colorful collection of  jars on the shelf.030Wooden thread spools, some that belonged to my grandmother. I love their simplicity. 013Scraps of yarn from making more of those little coffee cuffs that just can’t stop being made!012 024Hanging flower motif=inspiration for a new project. 020Words that make my heart flutter each time I read them, spoken by my sweet boy into my ear upon tucking him into bed one night. I love the reminder, so I wrote it on my studio chalkboard door. 028A year of giving thanks…one of my 2013 “resolutions”.  I write down what I am grateful for right in that very instant, put it inside the box and in one year I can look back on them and recount my blessings023Getting started on a linocut project for a friend…finally!035The mending box seems to keep growing…time to tackle it, I think. 032Currently reading and getting ideas from these library books.060I set up a new space in the studio for the boys to do their own crafting.  I’d really like to paint the wall, peg board and table, but for now it’s a useful little corner, albeit slightly drab.

Have a wonderful week, everybody!
