Find the Sunshine and Dance in It






I rearranged our school room again.  Do you know what the result is of clearing off any swath of flooring in this house?  Yes.  The girls dance.

Guess who started crawling over the weekend?  Yup.  He looks just like a little wind up toy...isn't there a little dog that takes mincing steps, and stops every so often to wave his head and "yip yip!"  Because that's just what Cocoa does.

The Farmers Market isn't accepting application until February, so I won't know if I get a chance at a slot (or what that chance would cost me) but I pulled out the wire and beads last night.  I love them all!  The small silver nests are so dainty, which I love.  The brown nest with orange eggs is just yummy, isn't it?  And the big is BIG.  It took me three times as long to wrap as the petite nests (which makes sense, because it was three times as much wire!!)  and it weighs a ton.  I've had a handful of ladies ask me why I don't make anything bigger, chunkier, flashier...because that's totally their style.  Well, now I know it can be done!  I'm not totally, totally in love- the beads are just SO big, it was hard to make the nest come up around the sides of them.  But irregardless, it felt wonderful to be making something again after a few weeks' break.

When does the farmer's market open? Maybe I could split the cost of the booth with you... if you wanted of course... do they even allow that? Of course that means I would have to make something... hmm.. :)

Cute. Isn't it so ironic how the kiddos just love big, freshly cleaned spaces? And then immediately pull out everything and cover the area with their clutter two seconds later? Love those nests.

Wow. You have skills I can only dream of--I barely made it through Home-ec class in school. It's fun to see what talents and creations woman have even if I may not grasp them myself. The little nests are just exquisite.
