turn off the tv!

... or better yet, don't turn it on!

In honor of Make Week: Turn Off Your TV and Make Life Happen, I've made a TV cozy. This project has been on my list for quite a while now and reading Sarah Baldwin's story on Simple Organic was just the push I needed.

With dreams of homeschooling Fiona (And future babies!) in the future, I have been thinking a lot about greatly reducing the amount of TV-watching that goes on in our house. If you know me, you know that I have a bit of a cable news addiction. I find myself turning on the TV in the morning and then just... leaving it on. I'm not even watching it most of the time! I've started feeling like the background noise is cluttering my brain!

I think the TV cozy is a playful way of reminding us that not all the time is TV time.
