When the going gets tough...

....the tough get crafty.

It's been a strange two weeks.
Lots of "urgent" upsetting my routine,
getting in the way of what I want to be doing,
and - well - just plain annoying me.
Yesterday's basement flooding was the proverbial icing on the cake.
I stayed fairly surrendered to it all
until some subtle {and not so subtle} signals
started coming my way about how I wasn't handling it properly.
I mean really - it should just be against the law to
kick someone when they're ankle deep in flood water.
....ok, maybe not ankle deep...

It's been nice to have some craft projects to distract me these last few days.
These wreathes that I made for the front and side doors
were so simple!
And turned out perfectly, don't you think!?!!

To quote the wonderful Katherine Hepburn,
"If you always do what interests you,
at least one person is pleased."

So I've been crafting decorations and making gifts...
anything to keep my mind distracted,
my hands occupied
and my spirits lifted!
