My in-laws left this morning. We had a really nice visit. They are so relaxed and quiet, just my speed. :) They spent hours every day reading books with the kids. My daughter had grandma come into her room every morning to wake her up and start reading. It was a really special time together.
And now I listen to those at home in Washington talk about the beautiful weather they're having there. My sister was doing some garden prep in their 50 degree weather and here I am thanking the Lord it's only -17 out there so that the house stays comfortably warm. It's been between -30 and -43 here all week!
I need a new project to curb some of my homesickness. I think I've decided on making a couple of wooden subway style signs. After taking down the Christmas decorations, I am really missing having something over the pellet stove corner. I'm thinking 2 long and narrow signs would fill the space.
After spending hours on Etsy browsing and drooling, I so wish I could afford to buy them custom, but alas, there are no funds for that. This is going to be a long and albeit frustrating project, but it may just the thing to inspire me right now. If you've tackled something similar, I would love to see your tips. I don't have a Crickit or a projector so that makes things more complicated, but it will still be fun (I think). Now to narrow down my choices and decide on the theme and style!
