Time change!!

Did you all remember to change your clocks? I love getting the extra hour of sleep, but hate that it gets dark out earlier. I already can`t wait for spring to arrive. Looks like I`ll be waiting a while...LOL

I was trying to get hubby to join me outside by the firepit with some hot cocoa, but he`s saying it`s to cold...LOL usually I`m the one saying that ;)

I was pretty productive this week and managed to get a few things created. Here`s a peek at them. They will be listed this evening on my ebay.

Well off to grab myself something to eat the stomach is grumbling!
