So, usually when someone says that I'm in a mood, it means that I'm irritable, grouchy, or down-right terrible to be around. But this mood is a little bit different.
I've been going through my stash - that would be my stash of scrapbooking and craft supplies. Trying to sort out the stuff I don't want/use to sell on etsy or at my friend Nancey's scrapbooking garage sale on Saturday. When I've got my hands in the stuff, it just makes me want to do something with it. So, I've been putting together the occasional page or card. It just makes me feel good, you know?
Here are a few pages from the crop I went to in January. I guess I've been into orange lately. I'm not sure why, but it's been a recurring color on my pages.
I've just been grabbing random pictures and running with them, which has been fun.

Yeah, it's snowing here. Not just a sprinkling, or a dusting of the stuff, it's actual big, wet, fluffy snowflakes covering the ground in inches.
I thought it was spring! Today is the first day, but I guess the calendar did not get consulted. It's a good thing I didn't get all wound out and start "spring cleaning" or anything. Just sayin'. Cuz I was really going to do it! Guess I better put it off for another week.
I ran across this idea for storing some of my scrapbooking supplies. I've got some CD cases lying around that will be put to good use when I get to that spring cleaning.
Instead of actually starting my spring cleaning, I thought I'd read some articles to get me inspired. Really, that's what I'm doing. I'm not just wasting time surfing the net, there's a method to my madness. Here's a good article about curing clutter and spring cleaning.

I'm contemplating whether the weather will be keeping us from going to church tomorrow. Since I have sharing time and am in charge of a Teacher Training meeting that includes lunch, maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing. But then all of that work I've done getting ready for them will be wasted, and I'll have to reschedule the training. So I'm hoping that church is on. By the way, this picture is from the last storm and not today. But it's looking pretty close to that right now! And Easter is just 2 weeks away.
