Today…

Today is a new day.  Thank goodness!  I’m very relieved that I get to start fresh because yesterday was rough

Today I’m really excited to get my copy of Kristan Higgins’ newest novel Until There Was You.  I absolutely love her writing, and have been looking forward to this book for months.  I’ll be standing by the mailbox all afternoon.  🙂

 

 

Today I’m putting the final touches on this paper crafting project that was inspired by this blog postThe Sometimes Crafter is one of my new favorite blogs – such cute stuff there!  It was really fun to work on my own “Three Little Pumpkins” project, and it was such a good distraction since I needed a break from writing.

Today I signed up for a beginner’s crochet class at a local craft shop.  The  talented Emma Lamb and lovely Natasja of crocheTime have inspired me with their gorgeous crochet work.  I don’t know if I’ll have the patience to create anything very big or beautiful, but I’ve really wanted to try crocheting for a while.  So I’m going to give it a whirl!

Today I am loving this quote by Leo Tolstoy.  It is such a good reminder of something so simple:  “If you want to be happy, be.”

    I’m so thrilled to be mentioned in the same sentence as Emma Lamb, and even more thrilled that my little bit of crochet action could inspire you! I’m sure you’ll be a fantastic hooker! 🙂 I look forward to seeing your crochet work!!!

    Oh, and I LOVE the Tolstoy quote!

      haha! A fantastic hooker – that’s hilarious! 🙂 Yesterday I asked the craft store clerk where the crochet needles were and she rolled her eyes and told me where the HOOKS were. I have so much to learn! But I’m really excited, and hopefully I’ll have something decent to show for it!
