Having Fun With Winter Blues !

Well hello again... I thought before this month slipped on by, that I would get another post on here !
We just had a Secret Sister like exchange on a thread over at SCS..there is a group of us ladies that check in daily and share most anything and everything... So a few times a year we like to do these...This one was titled THE BLUES
We each had to create an altered item , as well as follow a guideline of ten ideas related to BLUE... there was anything from Blues Clues to Winter Blues with a lot of other fun things in between... We could make some thing, buy something , or Stamp some thing... The gal that was sending to me sent a lot of images, and dp as well as cute and fun things too, a blue berry candle and a blue jean pocket full of hot cocoa mixes... And she created a journal type book with a matching pen and then a decorated tin to match ! Wowzers, it is so pretty I cannot wait to find a perfect place in my craft room to display it , it is too pretty to But I will break down put them to use... Here are pictures of all of my goodies and the journal and tin !
Aren't the simply gorgeous ?
Thanks to Debby for spoiling me with such great gifts and ideas , and to Shell for the fun , she did a great job in planning this and getting us to our reveal date...I wonder when our next one will be ?

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to get busy creating so I have something to share with all of you real soon,
Til then,Goodbye, and Take Care.

Where did this month go?

Well hi again, I am just not sure where this month has gone... I have been busy with a new journey in our lives, so not a lot of crafting going on... but I did do one Challenge card, and though it is simple I thought it turned out cute...the owls were in our packet from our monthly challenge, along with some other cool stuff...this card is as far as I got !

All SU products, simple placement... I did add on the inside "Sending twice as many many hellos, because you are twice as nice ... " or some thing along those lines. lol I mailed this to a very special friend who just had surgery and will be off from work for a while !

I will share some goodies from a QSS exchange that us QUACKERS from SCS just did in a day or so... til then... Bye
I hope you are all warm and safe...I hear we are under a winter storm warning again, with the possibility of 5 - 8 inches of snow after some rain...ugh Will this winter ever end ???

Winter Storm February 2011

Brrrr...Winter Storm

I guess this storm is affecting many states, the last I heard was 36 states... There was a possibility of up to 24 actual inches of snow... and drifts up to 6 to 10 feet...
We live in a small town of 1100, our city guys worked hard through the night to get and keep our city streets clean and clear... With winds up to 65 MPH that was not an easy task. I hear that all roads leading out of town are closed, as are the highways and expressways near by...
I shoveled a path, yep it was quite crooked...that is why my husband will not let me mow
I took a few pictures of our yard and near by...I hope to be able to get more later...I do not think the snow is going any where any time

I hope you are safe, warm and have power and food where ever you are... Thanks for stopping in...
