Ice Storm 2007


That's the caption all over the news this week! We had a terrible ice storm that knocked out a lot of power lines, including mine. Jeremy and I and the animals ( 2 dogs and a cat) were without power from Saturday around 2pm til Monday morning. YIKES!!! It was fun at first- playing board games by candlelight and watching a movie on my laptop under 6 blankets... BUT it got old! Sunday we went to get a hot breakfast to find nothing was open anywhere around us. We ended up 20 miles away in line for 20 minutes at McDonalds. As a vegetarian. McDonald's is the last place you want to end up! Let's just say it is over and I am so thankful! No school since we have no power- that's one good thing!!!!
I found out you can still make 1 inch squares by candlelight- here is a sneak preview of some of mine for an upcoming mail swap, I made over the cold icy weeeknd!

Ok- I am a day late, but I really want to share all the crafty things I made for Valentines day!
Here is my Valentine gift to my hubbie, Jeremy. I made wind-up toys that look like us. I put an accordion in his hands, and paint and a brush in mine. the BEST part is- they really wind up and work!

These pictures are of Sophie and Marissa (my nieces). I made them papier mache puppets for Valentines Day. I made Marissa "sleeping Beauty in the burgundy gown and Sophie received Cinderella in the blue velvet. We had soooo much fun playing with them!

digitally altered ATC's!

I wish I had more time to work with the hundreds of photos I take every month. I enjoyed this swap because it was a chance to use photoshop again and received some really great altered ATC's from Kirsten. The top two are hers and the bottom two I sent out! Happy altering everyone!
