Snow Days



I recently took a class at a local scrapbooking store. These are pictures of the cute "snow days tin" I made in the class. It was fun and I did learn a lot! I learned to use Diamond Glaze of which I have had a bottle sitting here for a while but didn't know what to do with it. The tin is actually a picture album that you are suppose to put the first snow of the season pictures in, but I didn't take any of the snow. We just had snow this past weekend and it wasn't too much fun to drive in. I see that they don't clear the roads as well here in VA as they do in Ohio. We were out in it on Sunday and saw lots of wrecks on the way home. I think they anticipate such a thing in Ohio and pre salt the roadways. And I hear that Ohio is having snow, too. My good friend, Susan, called me yesterday on her way to work. We use to joke that in the winter, it snowed every Wednesday which was the day we worked together. Of course, we usually made it any way unless the roads were icy. I really miss her and our work together in the quilt shop! So, on that note, I have to get busy on a journal quilt that is due before the end of the month. I did get my Sacred Threads entry mailed! Hooray! Sacred Threads is such a wonderful show if you are ever in the Columbus, OH area in June. Susan and I are on the committee...actually we are the publicity committee but we haven't been able to do a lot with the move and all. Actually, Susan saved the day (or I should say our "you know whats") by doing a bit of the publicity yesterday. I must do housework sometime today. I still have curtains to revamp and hem! "A woman's work is never done"...well, for me, it's still true today.

Vivian, I love the tin. Re your comment on my blog about Baldacci books--my husband is also reading The Collectors. I'll get it as soon as he's done.

This is so sweet. I love it. We're having lots of snow this year. Started in October I think. Glad you had a chance to play in yours.
