Today I'm Sharing.....

what I've been up to in my crafty corner of the living room.

This one for Colour Combo #168 - my youngest daughter at camping this past summer. Can I say how much I love that flower by Maya Road? I bought the ribbon so I can make my own recently - love how they add just the right finishing touch!

This one for Colour Combo #171 - my great Uncle Uiltje. My family doesn't have very many pictures of him as he passed away when he was just three years old. My Dad tells me he was never a healthy child and had a multitude of things happening all at the same time.

And this one which I made as a gift for my husband. Recently he went to his first live NFL game in Buffalo & I wanted to make this to remember it. The logo is not quite right, but I did the best I could with it.

I'm loving having the extra time to sit and create without watching the clock. Next week Monday school starts again and my vacation will be over. Sigh. We have one more "Christmas" get - together to finish up yet, but that won't happen until the middle of January or so.

Looking forward to a new year starting & wondering what it will bring.
Have a good one!

The lilac tree.....

can't take it anymore. Here's what it looks like at my house today.

Snow day #3 this week for everyone but me. I have an in-town route and so I drove this morning. Not terrible except for unplowed streets. They're working on it though, so hopefully it will be better this afternoon.

The kids annual Christmas musical is on tonight - can't wait to go see my kids sing their hearts out! Also looking forward to this weekend with a Christmas get-together with friends, and my hubby's staff Christmas. It's going to be kid free thanks to my in-laws...=D

Have a great one!

I got to.....

sleep in today!

Yep, that's right - snow day #2. Still in my pj's as I type this - again. But I have NOT worn them for 48 hours straight, I did get dressed for a little while yesterday. =D

It's still miserable here. It has gotten better since I woke up, but they say more is coming. Today my husband was forced to stay home as well, since the highway he takes to work is currently closed.

Still loving the snow days!!

Snow Day #1.....

today. I'm glad to be home with the kiddos - it's nasty out there. This picture was taken at 10:30 this morning & it hasn't quit yet.

I'm still in my pjs - love that. I'm gonna take some time and scrapbook a little.

I love a snow day!
