Cabin Fever!


Yup….it has set in.  Cabin Fever.  I’ve been sitting at home for most of January with the wind howling an the snow just keeps piling up!


That’s my back deck….haven’t made it to the Hot tub in quite a while.  Oh well…it can’t last forever….I keep telling myself! 

It seems like spring is a long way off but it’s giving me a chance to get some stuff done that I have needed to do anyway.  After a few years of just playing at it I made a commitment to stocking up my Etsy shop and really making a go of it this summer.  Making the move to our new spot here in the Canadian wilderness has enabled me to make some changes and do more of the things I am passionate about.  So…I have been learning a new language…one that includes SEO’s and Forums and Facebook pages etc.  It’s not always easy to get this tech stuff when you grew up in an era when the Microwave oven was a huge deal coming into the house!  I am persevering and loving it!  

Getting my shop filled up with the work that I have done is making room for new creations to come into my imagination and into existence.  A burst of creative energy is just what the Doctor ordered this Winter!  It’s been a tough one.  Here’s to the light at the end of the tunnel!



New Year, New Blog Home!


I’ve decided it’s time to move my Blog to WordPress and to actually get blogging again!  I’ve kinda farted around with a lot of different things these past six or seven months…including unpacking..getting rid of stuff..picking up new stuff…painting stuff…making stuff…working on my Etsy shop….helping my youngest daughter get her act together etc. etc. etc….It’s been busy!

As the new year has turned and the winter maintains it’s grip on me and my environment I am seeing sprouts coming up from the seeds I have been planting!

My Etsy shop has been encouraging and I have seen pieces I have made make their way to the States, Canada and Scotland.  My youngest daughter starts a new job next week and is flying the coop.  My home is beginning to take shape with each new project that I complete.

All in all a productive start to my new life in Muskoka!

Now I just need to get into a routine to make sure I am hitting all the marks I am aiming for.  My fresh start with WordPress is an exciting new beginning and I hope you enjoy following me on my adventures!Image
