so what have I been doing in January then

well I did plan to do a post this day...
 but it didn't quite happen..
 I took lots of photos of old house, barns and sheds.. I do have a plan...
 enjoyed a pedicure ~ mine are the black toes, and no, I haven't gone goth! 3 generations of feet here
 made a cushion for a 90th birthday present
 watched my puppy grow, and play
 stacked fabric in my shop - boy have I stacked fabric!
 read some of these
 enjoyed some creating of a different sort - my latest craze ~ mini books/albums... and I do have a plan for these too
 read some more of these
 and finished this off for a friend
January ~ a great time for smelling the roses... and a great start to 2012
I hope you are having a great time too!

I love taking photos of derelict houses too.
Sad as they were once happy homes full of the sounds of family life.

Pedicure day looked like fun - great image Shiree!!!

Have a great week
