What I really want to post on this drizzly Wednesday morning are the Works in Progress (WIP) I've got going on in my office:
Things like this sweet Cozy Cottage.
I could sit and daydream about the sweet old couple that lives there. I can envision The Mr. of the cottage getting the wood burning fire places stoked so the The Mrs. could sit by the hearth, sipping hot coffee and feeling, well, cozy in her little house in the woods.
But the Cozy Cottage hasn't been so much a WIP as a PIP, or Procrastination in Progress.
I also started another little ornament, because when I start PIP's I commit with my whole-heart.
These are all WIP's..
And these are the PIP's:
Door Number One-
Door Number Two -
I started this summer with very few goals.
I wanted to craft and sew.
I wanted to cook and bake.
I wanted to have fun at the pool.
And I wanted to clean out the pantry (although I was pretty sure this goal was lofty.)
But now it must be done (with fervor I cannot find), and it must be done today.
To make a very long story short, I kept a lot of non-perishable food (Cereal, dry pasta, spaghetti, granola, and canned goods) in the garage on a shelf.
The mice left lovely thank you gifts for the buffet they have enjoyed.
So I must organize, clean and rearrange so all food (including canned foods) are in the house, and all cleaning products and general junk (in the laundry room) get put on the garage shelves, making more "pantry" inside.
Which is going to be a lot of work and unfortunately, the end product won't have pretty hand-embroidered flowers, lovely bead work, or happy thoughts of living in the woods.
But, we won't have rodents...
...and I already live in a little house in the woods.
So, all is well that ends well.
What are your WIP's or PIP's today?
