It’s Hard to Turn Over a New Leaf
…when electric cars don’t have gas engines ;)
Signed my life away for a 2017 Nissan Leaf. According to the dealership, this is probably the first 2017 model sold in Canada. Pretty cool factoid, if you ask me!
The weather has become ridiculously warm. At 2Â°C for the past couple of days, the snow has been melting and to add insult to injury, it rainedÂ for the latter part of the day. Rather than complain, I reminded the girls it made forÂ perfect snowball weather, with heavy, sticky snow.Â Snowballs also meant snowmen, and ‘Phee decided snowdragons wereÂ more impressive creations within the realm of possibility ::grins::
I’ve been feeling kind of scattered lately.
I cranked outÂ more earrings for Strange Things Emporium. I think she said she has a venue this weekend, so fingers crossed for both of us! I should have kept a few pairs to photograph for Etsy, but IÂ rushed them to the store while I had time to. Malachite with silver, steampunk gears… carnelian that looks likeÂ dripping Â blood. All kinds of stuff.
They also need traditional painters/artists, so I spoke to the fellow running that part of the store. I’m hopeful. I just need to focus andÂ draw.
But I’m also knitting… just seems the easiest thing to pick up and manage at the moment. I am also… obsessive sometimes. I started a project and I want to see it done, so while I might have a larger chunk of time to draw,Â now my mind is on knitting. There are dragons in the background too, hehe. They need to come to the forefront, as I probably have another craft sale lined up in March.
Lastly, I’ve been wrestling with taming my crafting space. There’s no way to work on some of these things (save the knitting) because I have no space to work! I bought a million shelves on clearance from Chapters, (hey, I’m surprised too!) They are floating shelves, so trying to find the right sort of things to put on them have been a challenge in the art room. They made a great spice rack in the kitchen, and cleaned up the clutter in both bathrooms very nicely! I just… have a lot of large things :P
Maybe some photos next update. I have lots and lots of goodies arriving in the mail ::smiles::
