Crafts

I did get some things done on Monday. It was cold and snowy so a great day to stay inside! We're having a cold spell again - another polar vortex lol. To me it's just Michigan weather. Always makes me wonder why I moved here lol. I am so looking forward to Spring. I can't wait until I don't have to bundle up like the Michelin Man just to be able to go outside.

Crafty things - a couple of cards. I wanted to just play with some of my stamps. There are cards I do need to get done but I have to be in the mood and I wasn't.




I also finished up my wildlife journal/book and a little fungus mini-album. Last year I made a bunch of mini-albums (sort of became addicted to making them lol) but never put anything in them. So this year I decided I would fill some of them with themed photos that I'd taken. Killing two birds with one stone - using the albums and making sure I do something with my photos.





Wildlife Album - not the best photos. Yikes. Didn't realise until I was getting ready to post.




You can see the heron photo that eluded me for so long (I got it reprinted in the end!). I've also finished another cross stitch which I will photograph and post another day.

As January comes to a close I feel like I actually following through on some of my goals. I have really been watching what I spend on 'extras'. All-in-all a pretty good month!
