Hello everyone. Its another morning, dark and chilly, here in New Hampshire. Yawn. I could sleep in again this morning. I think this waiting for my husband's surgery, along with work demands, are getting to me. I could use a day off just for me right now-well actually I could a vacation, but its almost the weekend. And no kids tomorrow as we have a teacher work day. Yahoo and big smile!
So my journal page today is all about wanting that low key relaxing kind of day. Its not very complicated but these are my slippers- and yes they have owls embroidered on them. I was inspired by a comment Patty at Magpie's Nest made the other day on her blog. She talked about instead of walking around in the house barefoot it was time to pull out the slippers. That's me for certain, and especially this week since its gotten chilly. Never mind I have been so wiped out and sleepy the last couple of days.
I sketched the slippers, stamped and colored the owls with markers. Then I painted the base of the slipper and used molding paste to make the fleece on the inside.
But the good news this week is they finally turned the heat on in school (my large cavernous class room has finally gotten over 61 degrees F (16 Degree C), and I got my hair done and I really needed my hair cut so I feel better. Hey, its that kind of week. Got to make the best of all the little things.
OK, that's all for me. Time to get ready for work.
