As the craft closet gets more and more cramped and our household
cleaning supplies cry out for a hiding place, I have started plotting out
a storage overhaul. It requires moving things around between five
spaces in our home but will hopefully end with a nicely organized
storage system (for the first time ever) and some breathing room
for painting and sewing. I was very excited about leaping into this
before the coming of the summer heat until I got the flu last weekend
and landed flat on my face. But like the dandelion, I will rise.
Speaking of which, I just finished the 100 Cupboards trilogy, by
N. D. Wilson. I highly recommend it, but only if you have either a
great deal of discipline or some time on your hands -- it's hard to set down!

Here's the final version of the mother-daughter
collaboration on my journal cover.
While I think the accessories all look like acorns,
my daughter assures me that they're nuts, as in,
"I am nuts for nuts and ice skating."
So I suppose this is the winter elven nut fairy!
