Magic Moments In
Life Happen Quickly Be Sure
To Cherish Them All

My prompt for today produced an interesting effect and I was wondering if anyone else had the same reaction.  The prompt was to think of a day when everything went right and then write how I felt.  Well, the exact opposite wound up crowding out my thoughts.  In other words, all I could think of were things that went wrong!!!  Not right!!!  

How did I feel about that?  Not happy to say the least.  I kept thinking about how unfair that Midwest Work Ethic was...couldn't even think about positive things!  No, I realize that was not the reason but the prompt, in the end, led to quite a bit of in depth writing and soul searching.  So, all-in-all, it was successful.

So, what did I do with the rest of my day?  I created...with a bit of abandonment but still with some purpose.

First, the trees that I am crocheting for the Holiday Party...

They're nice but plain.  I had a ton of  crocheted snowflakes left over from a previous party so I thought that the two would go together nicely.  I was going to sew them on but that didn't work too well...way too much time, so I glued them on with hot glue.  The bonus was that the trees are much stiffer...

The The snowflakes really perked up the tree a lot.  Then I played with smaller snowpeople and came up with these two designs..

I like the top one better.  It also takes less time.  As I said they are smaller than my original one.  And no, I forgot to take pictures, but I didn't like adding a face.  Here's a snowperson with a snowflake tree...
These will sit on a round circle of fluffy white fur fabric with small candy canes  (in wrappers) scattered around.  

We had a lot of sun today so a lot of the leaves on the patio dried off enough for me to sweep them away.  No rain until the weekend.  That will be nice...the dark skies were getting a bit much.

Thanks for stopping by...
Talk to you tomorrow...

you would like to be friends
with?  Why?
