I have had a creativity slump. I have completed some newborn crochet projects which I prefer to show with a newborn adorning them (hopefully any day now).

My sewing machine would probably go into shock if I took the cover off from it.

But with all the awesome valentines day tutorial that I have been scanning in blogland. I came across a tutorial about making rosettes.

Not having supplies for a wreath I decided to grab some cloth scraps and glue gun and sit on my rump to make this topiary for decoration in my living room.

I am pleased with the way it turned out, and has given me renewed faith in my crafting abilities.

Winter Blues

I am having a huge case of cabin fever! Besides the fact that I am uber pregnant, my son has the energy that I can't keep up with, and there is so much snow that outdoor activities have become tricky.

This is the driveway not even an area of plowed snow.

I can't wait till the 24th, not that the cabin fever won't increase with a newborn. But my parents will be here from FL, and my husband has at least 4 weeks off from work. So the little guy, who is already acting unlike himself will have someone to get rid of his energy.

I will be thankful when the weather improves and spring arrives. I also can't wait to not be gigantically uncomfortable. I hope out there in blogland that you are not sharing the winter blues!
