January has brought the typical gray skies that always throw me into a lethargy that only the sun can bring me out of. My daughter gave me a "happy light" for Christmas which I think does help some, but there is no replacement for a bright sunny day.
Gray skies or sunny, there are some things that come along that have to be celebrated and this month it's my granddaughter's birthday (7), which was last Friday. Mid-morning I collected her and we spent the entire day together shopping at the mall, lunch at Red Robin, then a little crafty time at my house. What a good day!
The project we worked on is one I've had on my mind for years. I have this Fira drawer unit from Ikea that I've wanted to paint and cover with paper, but could never find exactly the right paper or colors, etc. There is this tendency in me to not do anything if it can't be just right. Ilse decided she wanted to paint something, so I put her to work painting the edges of the Fira white, while I worked on covering the drawer ends in paper. We both had a great time and I now have the project finished!
I use these drawers to hold all the ink pads I have. There's another set of Fira drawers stashed away that I might put together soon since I'm really liking the looks of this set!
Oh look, the skies are starting to lift a bit! I'd better get out and do some errands while I can see a bit of blue. I hope you're having a wonderful week!
