The New Year has truly begun. I finally took down my Christmas tree. I've been going through my huge collection of ornaments and weeding out many. I find I'm tired of mass produced plastic or resin ornaments. I'll keep a few sentimental Hallmark pieces, but many are going to find a new home!
I plan to spend some time creating handmade ornaments for next years tree. I saw a cute idea on a decorating show that I'm going to try. If it works out, I'll post photos. If it doesn't... well, I'll probably never mention it again! I'll also be doing a little bit of Etsy and blog shopping for handmade creations. My budget being what is is right now, it will be a very tiny bit of shopping.
Following is a short piece I did for the Sunday Scribblings Prompt, Normal...
What do you really see, when you look at me
I am not your normal, run of the mill kind of woman
My style is undefined, eclectic, ok... it's weird
My laugh is sometimes much too loud
And even my friends say I talk expansively
Which is apparent to me, when folks wander off
While I remain mid-sentence,
rambling perhaps, but singed just a touch
because I hoped my words would be meaningful
or at least entertaining
Normal I am not, but are you
