What do you do when you have too much pent up emotion?
What if it is too cold and wet to go
outside to dig in the dirt or smash some tennis balls?
Do you cook?Crafts and Christmas 008 How 'bout something salty and sweet and crunchy
enough to chomp into to expend that frustration.
Then after you polish that off...
Maybe...get out your paint.Crafts and Christmas 006And some scissors
Crafts and Christmas 010 
Rip up the back off of a box of crackers...
Crafts and Christmas 014
And draw, doodle, paint and create...
Crafts and Christmas 015
Something...to explain those emotions...
Until another warm sunny day comes around.
And it always does.
Thank-you Lord!


  1. Thank you for your prayers for little Emery!

  2. You are so creative!!!!!!!!!!!! Marg

  3. I just finished reading the book "The last Lecture" and he (VERY intelligent professor adn terrific human beign) loved crayons. He had hundreds t hand out at his last lecture and forgot to hae them pass them out.
    It is an excellent book. I thought of it when you said to rip off the back of a crayon box.

    Happy New Year

  4. Hi Sweet Kitt. I've being wanting to drop by for days but the time just keeps getting away from me. That probably leaves you thinking that means I don't have time to read comments or to enjoy them. Well, let me tell you, No Ma'am that's just not the case! It couldn't be further from the truth.

    Dear Kitt, you have left me the dearest and kindess comments on the last two post. You just can't imagine the smile I carry after reading those comments. With Neil and Nadine (MIL) both home every day all day time goes by very quickly. As you can imagine I'm in the kitchen a lot. But your words go with me.

    I know with so many blogs to visit it's so hard to leave a comment on all of them. That's why I appreciate you're sharing your time with me. Don't ever think that it's wasted because you never know how much your comment can mean to someone. They mean so much to me.

    I am a true chocolate lover and those (haystacks maybe) look yummy!!! I love the bright cheery colors you've used and the thought that you took something that could have gone into the garbage and made something so special.

    Lots of love and many many blessing my friend.
    Hugs....Tracy :)

  5. Oh yes..... crafting and snacking! No better combination! YUMMY FUN!

  6. If I could paint/draw like that, most definitely I would be doing so! So much fun your painting... And done on a box of crackers? Now what a fun way to recycle, I will get my kids busy with all the boxes we have around here. Hope the year 2010 is off to a great start for you. And, I love your new header!

  7. Hi Kitt, just checking in, hope things are OK. hadn't seen you around in awhile. Loved your word on TRUST.
    OK, I know where you are coming from on this post with frustration. I get there frequently. What's happening family wise? I'm here you know if you need an ear.
    big hugs,

  8. Sounds like a good time...crafting and snacking! Hope you have a FUN weekend!


  9. I haven't been blogging lately much....but came to see you again....and WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LOOK!!! Is this the designed blog you have had before? It is beautiful.....I have much to learn on improving my blog! I love all your entries...love reading them!

  10. Hi Kitt!
    Gosh, I WISH I got all crafty and creative and produced lovely results like you do when I get over-the-top emotional.
    Nope, me, I just get more ADD and LESS productive, sorry to say.

    Thanks so much for the kind words on my last post, greatly appreciated. :-)

    Have a blessed Sunday!
