The word for the day will apparently be SNOW. We’ve been getting notice for days of impending whiteness.

I can’t feel obligated to get dressed and out of the house, because the folks on the radio keep telling me to stay put. Anything I want to do today can be done in my jammies.

I have a shop sample for my friend Lucy’s quilt shop to work on. Then I have to sit down and design the idea that is in my head for my family’s holiday gifts. It’s good to be a quilter on a snowy day.

Don’t forget to stop by Neil’s for his Arts and Crafts Festival. Check out the things in my Etsy shop too.

I have spent most of this morning getting things uploaded to my Etsy shop. I’m having fun! Here’s the thing I still can’t figure out. How does one pronounce Etsy if you want to use it in conversation? Is it like the name Betsy without a B? I keep saying in my head, EEEtsy, with a long E sound. I don’t know why.

Here is an early morning picture that came out all goth and eery. In all actuality, the sunlight through the frost was brilliant and prismatic.

If it’s not my organized chaos, it has to be perfect. If it’s perfect, I don’t want to mess it up. It’s really best for me to maintain a certain level of constant near chaos. It’s really just cluttered looking organization. Mess with it and I am lost. LOST. With capital letters and whining.

I spent the last day or so cleaning in that ever so popular OCD/ADHD manner. You know where you have really good intentions of putting everything in it’s place. So I start in one corner and find a hair binder that should live in the bathroom. On my way to return it to it’s rightful home, I am distracted by a piece of fabric that should go back to the studio. I’ll save time and pick that up too, since the studio is right off the bathroom. But, now I’ve walked right past the bathroom, and I’ve deposited the hair binder on my sewing table because the piece of fabric I have brought back to the studio coordinates well with something on the ironing board. I never noticed how nice they look together. That would look good with that yellow piece I used in that other thing. Where did I put that? It’s 10 minutes later, I’ve got a nice color combo going for yet another project, and now I can’t find the hair binder. It’s amazing that I actually got my place presentable enough to have a guest. I will tell you more about the guest on Monday.

Right now I need to sew some to save the sanity. Tonight I will be attempting to put some items in my new etsy shop. Neil is hosting an Arts and Crafts thingy next week. I need to get moving!
