While we await the arrival of our hoard of belongings (aka boxes on a boat stuffed with essential things like baskets and cookie sheets), we've been having to improvise on some day to day things. Like measuring cups (might have made smidgen too much rice last night...) and lamps (we have candles.) and throw blankets (lots of cuddling to keep us warm). Lamps, we're going to have to wait even longer for (they're not really in the budget right now), but I'm slowly figuring out ways to do things while we await our treasure trove of schtuff.
Honestly, the thing I've got to be most proud of right now is our calendar. I think we might have one in a box, but I just don't know. But let me tell ya, we've been needing one.* I pulled out my sketchbook and found a design idea for some November foliage and whipped up this little beauty.
It was a fun project and I think I'm going do one every month. Hopefully my creativity can handle that.
*As Mr. F was leaving for work this morning, I wished him a Happy Halloween, to which he responded, "Huh? Is that today? Gotta go! Love you!"
