why does my page go blank after posting sometimes???

Another Post....a Sweet Give Away!

Hi again - in cruising around blogland, I've just seen Cynthia's sweet give away. Go over the her place for a visit and check out all the other pretties she has too!

now...on to my project....

New Day, New Week, New Month

We had a nice snow last night. Some areas got a ton but I think I only got about 2 inches. It's heavy and wet and beautiful; I'm glad I don't have to go out today. Wouldn't you know I just had my car washed Saturday and now there will be salt on the roads.

I've been very unfocused the last few days and haven't accomplished anything, which puts me in a very bad mood. I think because I'm home now due to unemployment, that I've been trying to make every single thing I've been wanting to for ages and consequently, have become a little overwhelmed. Now mind you, I jump from thing to thing all the time anyway (I know you all know what I'm talking about), but at least I actually finish some of my projects some of the time. I've got the quilt tops for the Appalachian Project to be worked on, the St. Patricks Day table topper I want to make, the painting I started a couple of weeks ago - untouched, supplies to repaint my totally destroyed laundry room (details in another post), an old tin lamp I'm giving a makover to, and probably 20 small sewing projects that I want to do right now. Oh, and of course, visiting friends in blogland isn't helping....seeing all the beautiful homes and decorating ideas. Yes, last night I found another pretty blog and of course, want to immediately paint something with black and white diamonds on it!

Usually I'm the one who is focused and helping others do the same, but I'm making myself crazy. I'm so torn between sewing and painting projects. I am going to pick one small thing and finish it today, and then move on. Baby steps. I can't do everything as fast as I'd like and I just need to refocus so I can start making progress again. Making and doing is what makes me happy.

In the mean time, here are just a few pictures I took of our snow. I wish I had bought more birdseed when I went to the store Saturday!

Oh, and one more thing....the previous post about using carpet as weed is completely hidden once covered with mulch. Just in case you thought I'd actually leave it that way :)
