Snow and sunshine













Hello there...as you can see we have lots of snow....ba humbug the snow.  Today is my birthday and as usual I am stuck inside.  I dream of happy summer birthdays....well at least I did before I got to the point of not wanting them at all....but what can you do?  Today I have been a sloth...eating Costco pumpkin pie for my birthday cake...YUM.  Grease is on and next Summer place....which I love the music too.  If there can't be sunshine here at least I can see it on the teli.  Hunter and the cat and dog LOVED the snow..good thing because we are suppose to get more for the next 7 days.   I have not done a lot of creating except for projects that are due for design teams but a few of these were made just because I felt like it.  Love the worn subtle colors of days gone by.  Adding things that someone may have forgotton about and slipped into a drawer.  Getting use out of buttons and twine...well makes it happy.    The last project was made using some gorgeous Magistical Memories chipboard http://www.magisticalmemories.com/  and my friend Patsy from Prarie Bird Boutique http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrairieBirdBoutique    sent some of the most luscious distressed ribbons with variations in color....simply yummy.  Reminds me of the colors of ribbon candy.  Which reminds me I have not stared any of my baking.....hmmmm.   This weather calls for fantasy fudge and sugar cookies....and  maybe a few spritz.   Well I digress....hope you all are doing well.   If I don't make it back before Christmas....have a Merry one with those you love!   hugs, cherry
