Hearts for February

Blah Blah Blah January. I'm glad it's over because I was so unmotivated the last two weeks of January. It didn't help that it snowed everywhere in Oregon this week except the eastside of Portland! Which is so rough because it's cold and I do not like the cold unless I get to enjoy the snow.

Instead of enjoying a good snow day I've been dreaming of warm Hawaii and all the lush tropical fruit we ate. In fact I would say a good 20% of our vacation was dedicated to visiting farmer markets and trying new fruits. I'm definitely dreaming of 5 papayas for $1. Hunter trying Coconut Milk (water) for the first time. Avocados the size of Grayson's head. Sean attacking a pomelo for the first time. Grayson asking "if the rambutans were living sea creatures."

Looking forward to a very productive month. In sticking with my RRR Challenge I've decided not to buy one piece of fabric, paper or craft supply until I have finish five projects already underway or that I can complete by using my stash of supplies. First up is a set of freezer paper stenciled baby tees for the neighbors new baby. Skateboard, Flames, and AC/DC.

Here's to a happy productive heart filled February.

ohhhh Hawaii does sound so nice right about now. And Ken and Tonya are currently in Hawaii as I type!! so very jealous.....and so very tired of the cold too! I like your idea of finishing/or depleting your supply of crafty stuff before purchasing more. I may have to consider such a thing myself! ;)
