All those left over topics that don't seem to match anywhere else... like that lost sock under the bed.

What is this?


Anyone want to guess what this is? Perhaps the inside of my wastebasket? Or the floor after I've finished a project? (Uh, no it isn't BUT this IS what my floor looks like after I've finished a project! Why aim for the wastebasket when the floor is so much more convenient?) Anyway, what you're looking at here is an honest to goodness compulsive behavior!

I'm constantly working with felt, and that means I create a ton of felt scraps. Sure, it would be easy to pitch a few little scraps here and there; some might even argue sane, but I can't bring myself to do it. Maybe it's the exschool teacher in me that learned most things have value to a creative mind, or my Polish ancestry that has a tendency to save everything "for a rainy day", but I see diamonds in this colorful heap. Somewhere, in the back of mind, behind this week's obligations, daily errands, and other interactions with humanity, I have an idea forming to turn these scraps into a work of art.

Evolving Blog

Michelle and I have a tendency to view inadament objects, like our homes, as living, breathing, organic entities that must continuously evolve or face extinction. It's not surprising that we'd treat our blog in the same manner. And that should explain why the look of our blog is changing yet again!

Michelle is the graphic and computer guru. She does the work, and I sit on the other end of the phone listening to her say, "Okay, refresh again. Which do you like better?" And I dutifully refresh the page, and try to discern the minute nuances that are at times barely perceptible to me, but I know her eye for detail will eventually result in a lovely and comfortable blog that I happily call home!

So, please be patient with us again. There are still some issues with photo size and text wrapping. There also seems to be some discrepancy in text size. This is all an enigma to me, but to Michelle it is an enthralling puzzle that she enjoys solving! So, we'll let her have her fun, knowing full well that the end result will be delightful.

There is another good thing to come of all this. The signatures now work, so any registered member is welcomed, nay, encouraged, to include their...Read more

My blog is about...well, anything I feel like writing about that week. I post a new blog each Tuesday morning and talk about parenting, grandparenting, cooking, decorating, and whatever else speaks to me that week! It is written in a light hearted fashion and encourages your comments! One Generation To Another.

If you haven't done so already, wander by, and say hi! Read more
