It's a cold, cold February....

We have had quite a winter this year. I will be ever so happy to see spring arrive. The only good part of all this is that I no longer have to drive to work in the snow. In fact I've been pretty much hibernating these last few weeks.


This is a valentine I made for my PaperWhimsy friend Gale Blair for an exchange on our Facebook Art Friends group. No pressure here....I get to send to Miss PaperWhimsy herself!! I love this pink ruched fabric. I have it is a pale green too, but seem to always use the pink.


I finally received a package from my friend Sally in France that was mailed on November 30th.....and look at the condition it was in when it arrived. It was practically shredded and in a USPS envelope with a note of apology stating "We Care"!!!! Fortunately, Sally had packaged everything so well that everything inside survived the trip despite the post office. Even the lovely crystal on her card was unbroken.




This has been the view from our front porch. In fact this was about three inches ago. We are running out of places to put the snow. I figure if we get more snow before some of this melts, we won't be able to get to the mailbox. (Especially after the efforts of our wonderful snowplow driver!) Ah well, hopefully spring is not too far away. Meanwhile, I will be keeping warm by the fire!
