January is, honestly, one of my least favorite months of the year. November has Thanksgiving, December has Christmas, and February has my birthday. March is technically the beginning of spring, even if the weather may not always agree.
But January in my world is just cold. And I don't like the cold.
I've always been a cold-natured person. My feet are warm only in the mornings before I get out of bed. I have made an art form otu of dressing in layers. Everything I can possibly manage is either fur-lined or fleece or flannel.
So it was a wonderful chance to reframe my way of thinking when this month's theme was announced - "Cold Hands, Warm Heart." It was a chance to remember the good things about the colder months of the year - even if it's only a reminder that the cold makes us appreciate the warm months even more.
So that's my take on "Cold Hands, Warm Heart," and it was a guide for the phrases that I've turned into word art for this month.

AND...a special note...starting in February, the Scrap Designers Blog Train will move away to from the tidal wave of activity that occurs on the 1st of the month, and we will start posting this blog train on the 10th of each month. So I'll see you back here on February 10th!
