it’s officially winter.
while it’s been cold here, we haven’t gotten any snow accumulation, although there were some cute little flurries this morning. last year at this time i was digging out of a blizzard. i’m thankful this year for zero shoveling duties since i’ve been dealing with a bum shoulder. (guarantee i just jinxed myself.)
i went outdoors early this morning and took a photo of a little cork ornament i made last night after seeing this tutorial here.
a cork christmas tree ornament!
as you can see, i’ve been very busy drinking wine.
no, of course i haven’t.
(maybe a little.)
i went into the dungeon to drag out old crafting supplies and i happened to have a bag of corks. and a box of colored wire. i think at one point i had visions of making a headboard out of corks. or was it a raft? as so often happens in my craft world, none of those projects came to life (which is probably a good thing.)
i’m signing off now ’til the new year (or maybe the new season???). i’m getting bored with myself. i think i’ve thrifted every possible thing i can thrift (save for one particular chair i’m always on the lookout for.)
(i think i swiped this photo from an ebay listing.)
and since i don’t own that house i anticipated owning by now, i’m not busy repainting or decorating and showing off, and therefore i’m running out of stuff to say. and let’s face it – now’s the time for me to get a job. i need traveling money. i’m itching to get out of town again and explore a new place. the inside walls of my apartment are getting dull and i’m getting dull. so i need money and i need a job to travel and make myself more interesting.
so – have yourself a merry little winter. maybe i’ll catch you on the equinox.
