On the days leading up to Christmas, I had a bit of a sweatshop going on in my
So, when the new year actually began, I was finished. I needed a break from responsibility. I've still been substitute teaching, a little. I decided to - for the first time - knit something for myself. I'm now referring to that project as the Great Scarf Disaster of 2011. Soon I'll be ripping that thing out and starting over. :-) I read a book, watched some TV, and then I decided I was going to start relearning photo shop.
First project: An attempt at a Christmas collage, featuring some of our activities and some of the things I made in the month of December.
Once I got to it, I realized I wasn't very active with my camera. Oh well, here is my beginner's attempt. The background is the best tree ever. It's tall. It's skinny. It's very Charlie-brownish and I loved it. As a matter of fact, I thought this ornament was definitely for me when I saw it. Turns out, Kristie at obsessive crafting disorder seemed to [wrongly] think her tree was the best ever. I'm sure her tree was a close second, but hopefully she can find comfort in knowing she made the best ornament ever. I meant to make on myself, but there just wasn't time.
So there you have it, blogosphere. I've missed you and I'm looking forward to connecting with you again.
