Every January 1st, a countdown begins. Every year, it's the same thing, 105 days until taxes are due. For most of us, this is not a fun time. Even if you are looking forward to getting some money back, it's never as much as you want and there is a bunch of perplexing paperwork to get through first.

With the weather being what it has been lately, we have all been spending a lot of time indoors. After staring at the same things day in and day out, I decided it would be fun to add some color here and there. Not wanting to leave the house (brrrr!!!), I looked for what I could do with what I had around already.
