art, eat, decorate, work, in a nutshell

Those are my plans for today...I thought I'd finally share some art from my heart (I'm a poet and don't even know it..hardy, har, har). Anywhooo, my personal art book that I have designed that holds dreams, decor ideas and recipes from sweets to soups. This is a work in progress, so I need to finish a page today that's in my brain before it flies away. Someday, when I'm all old and wrinkly, I hope my son will treasure it and not use it as a coaster. I see a lot of book titles here. Sweets to Soups, In a Nutshell. I'm writing these down right now! Stop the press and call my agent...;) Well, I don't have one yet, but when I do~Also, in this book are envelopes. I LOVE envelopes. They are great to tuck magazine clippings in. ;)

Then, that is coupled with the eating...Today, to add to my cookie weight, I thought I'd bake something sweet...I'm all out of dried lavender. I was going to make the lavender tea bread located to the right--> 

Next, I have to slap on another coat of primer and then 'Bay Cove' onto the next set of cabinets to finish my kitchen before Christmas...
My New England kitchen is almost done! This is the good side, but still have that tile! -Eeegahds!
Last, I have to finish my online graduate course. When you're a teacher you have to keep taking graduate classes beyond the graduate degree that you already have...I'm not complaining though...LOVE MY JOB! I job share, so I'm off today if you're thinking, Hey, is she slacking and taking the day off!
Where I work at home and write, correct papers, read, draw, and there below

My couch is big pillow comfort!
And my bookshelf on the other side of the room that tends to distract me...Notice my new thirty-one bags?! Love that large utility tote!!  
Okay, so, I have to do all of this before picking my lovie bug up at preschool.

  1. What a great idea! It's a treasure today and tomorrow. Just think about it, in about 200 years it will show up at Brimfield in a dusty box and someone will ooohhh...aahhh over it (all this after it is passed down, hand to hand, the first recipient being your son, the second being his future wife...
