January's Wreath

Happy Monday!

I think I have finally realized that the weekend is NOT for catching up.  I keep imagining a weekend that allows me to check things off of my to-do list, catch up on chores and projects, and still spend all that wonderful quality time with my family.  I'm not sure what it is, but I always end up with a longer list on Monday.  However, I hurt my back (an old dance injury - one I started seeing a chiropractor for in junior high), and while forced to rest Saturday night I finished my latest wreath.

I had planned a "snowy" wreath to fill the time between Christmas and Valentine's Day, but after a few weeks of dreary, gray January I knew I needed to brighten up my color palette.  The yellow, cream, and gray seem to remind me that I should enjoy the glimpses of sunshine that occasionally grace us with their presence in this cloudy, blah, northern California winter.

And enjoy I did this past weekend.  The temperatures (over 70 degrees) were heavenly!  And there are blue skies today, so I'm going to count this blessing and go get happily to work on that to-do list.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow! I'm releasing the February Sampler - you won't want to miss it!  Tessa
