Getting crafty during a snow event

Standard

We waited all day for the snow to get here. Sean talked himself out of going to work and called out, much to our disapproval when we heard what he had done. He of course lost a day’s pay. He’s worked hard there during this holiday season. I think he had visions of being stranded there as the weathermen made such a stink over this storm.
I wasn’t feeling too chipper, took a nap and then made some collages. I had to do 6 to catch up and got up to 4 but am not finished it yet.
I really like how my bride collage came out. I had pulled out the ‘stained glass’ background paper and then found the bride and went from there.
I also had pulled out a Valentine’s scrapbook page and used the bird one. I got a lot of use out of a Christmas card (from my stash)-the flower pot came from it:
Lovey Dovey 4" x 4" Collage Card
Then I ran across this sweet girl on a sled and the verse in my ‘scrap’ box and thought they worked together too:
Moments that take our breath away 4" x 4" Collage Card
Hope things are cleaned up by tomorrow as Sean needs to get to work and Brian is spending the night at this dad’s house as he is having cataract surgery on Tuesday.
I’m pretty sick of cooking, but alas, I had to throw together something tonight-spaghetti, broccolini, black olives and fancy cheese. It was good, but needed a little more olive oil-too much pasta!
I’m dreaming of a hamburger-but not sure if I get that or not for dinner Monday, but just maybe!

  1. Wonderful artwork, Dianne! We are now getting lots and lots of snow and loving it. We’ve all had turns doing the shoveling, which makes it a lot easier than me trying to do it all alone! Happy days to you and the guys!

  2. I was wondering if you were getting any of that snow I saw on the TV yesterday. I guess it was not so bad as I thought it might be.

    Love the verse on that last card. I am trying to think of when was the last moment that took my breath away–does climbing up 95 stairs count? LOL.
