First, let me tell you all, I loved all of your great comments and interaction from the giveaway! I appreciate that you stop here, that you talk to me, that we get to just... know each other. Sharing, you know, that stuff. The giveaway also gave me time away to fully enjoy time with the in-laws.
We had a great time.
And we worked like dogs.
Not that I've ever seen a dog actually work, but I hear Australian shepherds do work sometimes. Or something like that. My FIL, I'll tell you what. That man is happiest when working, and it's impressive what he can get accomplished. I'm not going to tell you that it's all fun, but it's impressive ;-)
Anyhow, I'll be updating you on the hard won progress soon. But for now, in my final days of Spring Break, I've got a leetle bit-o-time to get my creativeness out. And I've turned to pinterest for some inspiration. Here's a mix of my favorite things. Some I can do, some I can't. But it's nice to imagine!
|1. Crispy Gnocchi and Pesto|
Technically, I made this already.
But I'm making it again.
Because it's easy and delicious.
Seriously, they are just... so fun to bit into!
|2. Fabric Rosettes|
They're cute, and could have so many uses.
Or they could just sit around my house in various places.
Either way, I call it necessary.
I love gray (grey?).
I'm just going to tell you, it's my favorite color, and I'm not ashamed.
Even if it means I'm boring.
I'm okay with boring.
|4. I want to take a beautiful picture, like this one.|
Not actually this one, since it is from Italy, and I have about a ZERO chance of going there.
Manageable goals are what it's all about, people.
|6. We made some beds sort of like this.|
This weekend (Lord willing and the creek don't rise)
We'll fill them with 2nd-hand potting soil, and plant some long-overdue potatoes.
Fingers are crossed!
|7. Tomato Tortellini Soup.|
It might just be yummy-looking enough to persuade me to cook tomorrow.
In all the post-visitor mess, I often just flounder and do laundry and eat bread.
But maybe, just maybe, I'll make some soup tomorrow.
|8. I wish I could tell you that I would be wearing that dress.|
But no, that's not what this pin is for.
I love that little handbag up there.
I might try and design it tomorrow.
I mean, you had to know there'd be a purse involved!
I might try my hand at these cuties.
I mean, I did crawl through a trailer on Wednesday for $3/bolt fake leather.
I really ought to use it, right?
That's what you'd do, I know it.
Tell me you wouldn't!?
Because that'd be a lie.
That's what's caught my eye of late. I may do one or two or ten or none of these things. But at least now, I've been inspired. What have you been thinking about doing lately? I'd love to hear what trips your trigger in your creative mind!
Spring Break or Bust,
