Clean freak 2

O.K. it's been so cold here that I am reluctant to step outside. So what do you do. I've been trying desperately to clean up. Ha! You know me I start with my studio, and get easily distracted. So now I've found a few more projects that are must dos this winter. I must say for such a mess, I'm really not that unorganized. But then there are the books, and you know that you can't just toss out everything. So I read somewhere that(probably in my own new years resolution list) that if you don't like more than one thing in a magazine or cookbook, you should donate it. I'm not doing well. I haven't even been able to part with my old macrame books. I wish I had kept my macrame kitchen curtains, they are back IN. I'm sure I'd find my cat hanging from them at some point. But in all this clean up I can't help thinking I need to design something for my niece's first baby. Any ideas. I don't think she has a "theme" yet, or at least I'm not aware of one. Her sister liked the idea of Noah's Ark, but I don't want to do that again. I'm thinking Humpty Dumpty. Just because she's such a good egg. This Video is Leslie and I on our adventures, it seems that it is always SO Much snow. We are collecting hearts for our gallery picture book, for Valentine's Day.

I adore this song and little video. It IS us, isn't it! You are the one with the red hair, and I notice you put me on the front of the toboggan...still driving!

What an adorable video. It's lovely to see and hear something that celebrates the wonderful friendships that the two of you have.

Irene, my dear. I can't imagine what you would see in my writing that calls to mind anything that isn't completely boring, unfocussed and neurotic. I see your life as infinitely better. Take for instance your resolve to learn to drive. If you don't do it, it's no big deal and if you do it, you're amazing. I never wanted to drive but when I had the opportunity of a job in the States, I knew I would have to take lessons. With each lesson I became increasingly panic-stricken and, at the close of the lessons, ended up sobbing for at least an hour. Thankfully I didn't go to the States and thus had a good excuse to abandon the driving initiative.
