Love (And a Lot of Snow) Is In the Air
I woke up this morning to lots and lots of white fluffy stuff. It's soooo pretty, but I only say that because someone else drove my son to school this morning. I'm sure I'll change my tune around 3 when I have to go get him. :o) Ah that's okay. Doing donuts in the snow and skidding through intersections is one of the joys of Midwest winters and I don't feel that I've actually experienced winter until one of those two things (or both) happens.
I'm getting started on some Valentines cards! I'm not sure if I'm going to put these in my Etsy shop, or if I'm going to keep them and send them to my friends and family. Can you tell I'm loving my Cricut? It took me no time at all to cut the letters, and then I sat and played for a few hours and got the cards finished. I used a variety of embellishments - buttons, punches, Stickles, brads - you name it. Whatever I found in my hefty stash of fun stuff to glue on cards, I used! I think my favorites are the punched daisies with pearl centers.
Well, I'm off to get some work done. I still haven't taken my Christmas stuff down yet. Can you say "draggin' your feet a little bit"? I've got a good excuse though. I decided the other day to start a major kitchen cleaning and I've been busy taking everything out of cupboards, reorganizing and scrubbing everything from ceiling to floor. Some people do Spring cleaning, but I never get that bug until winter time. I'm weird like that.
I hope you have a wonderful day and for those of you experiencing snowy conditions - be safe and stay out of my way! LOL.
