It’；s January so I guess it’；s time to get back into the swing of things. I admit that I’；ve done a lot of nothing the last few weeks. ？My daughter was home from college and most of my extended family has been out-of-town all month， so things have been really quiet around here. ？I seem to function well on “；momentum”； and I just lost some of that mid-December. ？Plus we don’；t need to talk about the whole “；move all of your craft supplies up two flights of stairs”； experience. ？It’；s still a mess， hopefully I’；ll have photos to share with you sometime this millenium.
