Oh my goodness ...

... another year shot to Hell!!! ...LOL!! No it was not that bad at all! Another year gone by with what seems like few changes, but there was stuff happening. I hit the magic age to collect Social Security. My room mate of 15 years moved out - boy, I miss him, but getting a craft studio in exchange. Many camping trips took place close to home to save money but still get out in the woods.

Maggie, my p-i-t-a kitty love, decided that the bathroom sink was nice and comfortable since the heater vent is under the vanity. If it's not the bathroom sink, it's right on top of the heater vent in the craft room. She likes her heat!


And wonders of wonders for our 2009 winter - we finally got some decent measurable snow! In normal years we have 6-10 inches before Thanksgiving, this year we have had a couple of 2 inch snow storms (storms ??). By Christmas and New Years we have had as much as 4 feet. This year is very different.


I've done a lot of crafting, including putting a craft room into usable space. I'm still not completely done, but there is enough usable space for me to do some smaller crafts.




The cowl for my friend Dale - and he has used it when plowing snow, now that we have some, around the neighborhood! I lined it with a forest green flannel and he says that it really keeps the wind out when zooming around on the quad!


Making fun stuff, and I have plans for more chickens and other stuff!


... and REAL chickens! They seem to have settled in no matter how cold the weather is, and I get an egg a day from each chicken = 5 eggs. I'm selling some to pay for the feed, but I still have plenty left over for myself, eggs that is, not feed! Yes, that is a very real baby gate - they would all move into the house if I let them ... that is a definite "I don't think so!"


I could put a lot more pictures up, but I would bore you to death, and that is definitely not my intention! I want you to come back and visit ...

I hope your 2009 was good and not too affected by the whole financial thingy! I hope you all will have a much better 2010. I wish you peace and prosperity, love, happiness, and health.

Hugs

The chicks will eventually figure out that they can go over the gate. Mine hang out at the sliding glass door staring inside. Happy New Year!

Your craft room looks so organized! I tried to get mine together but I keep hoping from one project to another! Hey you need to turn off your "non-reply" when you leave comments. I always want to reply to comments left on my blog but you don't leave an email address! And then I forget what I was going to say when I visit your blog! Anyways, you have been busy in 2009! Happy New Year!

You did a great job organizing your craft room. I agree with Barbara, those chicks will flap over the top of that gate. Until then, your home free. I'm lovin' your little fabric chicks! Too cute.

Have a fantastic day and God bless ya'll!!!

I don't gamble either, just touting how very lucky I've been lately.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
