2011-12-15: It's a pink poodle Christmas!

This year I added another pink tree to my collection. I decorated it with poodle ornaments that I made.

I took old sparkling pink ball ornaments, added some pink pompoms, a black nose pompom, red felt tongue, a pair of googly eyes and pink felt ears.

Aren't these ornaments just the cutest ever?

December 7, 2011: Upcycled Scarf

This morning I put on a Christmas-y tshirt. It was too tight (must have shrunk, huh?). I wore this shirt on my first date with my husband, Jim on 12/21/98. Since it held good memories for me I wanted to keep wearing it.

I laid the shirt out flat and cut it from arm hole to arm hole. Voila! I had a new infinity scarf. The hem finished one edge and I turned under and stitched the other edge.

I made the scarf this morning. The whole process probably took about 10 minutes.

I've included a photo I took just now of me sitting at my desk and wearing the scarf.

December 2, 2011

Getting over the one year hump is definitely making it easier for me to cope.
I don't go into shock each top I see Jim in his wheelchair. I don't feel around for him in my bed. I don't cry each time I drive past a place where we've been together...

So, it's easier. Not good but easier. I still mourn for our old lives but I am growing accustomed to our new ones.
