The girls and I have been chatting about the upcoming month (February already??) and brainstorming things we might want to learn about, make or try. I think it will be a great help to me to have this list of resources ready to go when we’re looking for some inspiration. I hope you find a few things of interest, too!

Memorize this poem:
by Eleanor Hammond
Frost flowers on the window glass,
Hopping chickadees that pass,
Bare old elms that bend and sway,
Pussy-willows soft and gray.
Silver clouds across the sky,
Lacy snowflakes flitting by,
Icicles like fringe in line,
That is outdoors valentine.
