its the holiday season

The crafting around here is alive and well.  It’s actually quite astonishing.  Between my kids, the holidays and my recent surge of inspiration, the projects are nonstop.  There is needle felting, paper cutting and folding, sewing, knitting and spinning projects in the works as we speak!  That is a type of overwhelm I can handle, because I just love it!  A few weeks ago I got to meet knit collage from my Instagram feed and making art batts and spinning bulky yarn has been high on my list of projects to work on to match the stocking I made from one of her kits.  So of course with all that yarn I have been carting around I had to make a forager vest last night to ease the project toting (those pockets!!).  There have been a few pebble vests for willow thrown in for good measure and lots of swatching for the birkin sweater I am beginning.  whew!

And the holiday season is off with a start!  I am so far not feeling at all under the gun about any of it, which is lovely as it seems the last 3 years I have spent the days after the holiday recovering from serious bouts of stomach bugs (and one first trimester too), so I am determined to keep my immune system high and my stress level low.  Which brings me to a bit of a witches brew I have been drinking nightly that I though I ought to share- tulsi tea with macerated ginger and turmeric, a few drops of oregano oil, a bit of cayenne, and a scoop of raw CBD honey- lets hope it works!

The weather has been nothing short of beautiful but extremely cold for so early in the season.  We have had a few snow storms and lots of freezing weather, sometimes dipping down the to the single digits.  It has not encouraged lots of outside play, though we get out everyday.  It has, on the other hand, been just right for crafty-dreams to come to life.
