Why does the shortest month seem the longest?

I don't know about you, but February is just not my favorite month. It seems to go on forever. It must be the gloomy, gray New England skies, the frequent snow, the frigid temps. If I didn't have to commute to the office February could become a favorite time...reading near the fireplace, all comfy and warm.

January seems to scoot by, recovering from holiday overdrive, concentrating on those resolutions. February is rarely fleeting. The days drag. March awaits. Although it can be blustery and cold, at least the first day of spring is officially approaching when the turned calendar reads March!

So, what to do so that February days don't seem so dull? My answer is: Create! Use the time to take those fabulous tools that are standard issue (your brain, your hands, your thoughts) and see what you can create.

Lately my creative appetite has been fed with tiny pieces of glass, various shapes and sizes, shimmering color, endless possibilities. BEADS!!! A tube or two of beads and I'm off on an exploration...or expedition...into the unknown. Not that I only have a tube or two...who can settle for that when there is so much out there to play with?

Suddenly there isn't enough time in a day, days in a week, and only 28 days in the month are not enough.

Maybe beads are not your answer. Or maybe they are and you just don't know it...yet.
