I am learning that creating can take on many flavors. These are Cinnamon Roasted Almonds. When we lived in Florida we use to buy them at the local festivals. With winter bearing down on the North Carolina mountains, I needed a taste of sunshine.

Teeny Tiny Town

 I love paper! I love toys! I love paper toys. I woke up this morning and made this town.

Trinkets that my amazing daughter found for my peep shows.

My amazing daughter found these at Uncle Fun's in Chicago. She is always on the hunt for me. I am a bit frightened that I have given her the scavenger gene. All joking aside she is my biggest cheer leader.
  The first week has been good. I have not yet formed habits and I have to remind myself. I'm doing it! I tell my youngest daughter about life..." It may not be pretty, but it's real, and it's honest, and mine." Kinda feeling that way about this journey.
