Here is a picture of the snow this afternoon.
Well after listening to the forecast yesterday morning, I decided I didn't want to have to worry about getting to and from work today on nasty streets. I got a vacation day approved for today and I have spent the day at home being creative.
I spent the morning scrapbooking. I don't often get to spend this much uninterrupted time working on layouts.
I did this layout of Addison and Sarabeth. Robin took this picture a couple of months ago when they were playing at the park.
I used stickers for the lettering and got out the Sizzix to die cut the swirls and circles.
Then I did a layout for My Sewing Journal of the costumes that I made for Addison and Sarabeth for Halloween. I experimented on this layout using the sewing machine to sew the buttons on and embellishing with decorative stitches. Sarabeth wanted to be a doctor so I made her scrubs and embroidered Dr. Sarabeth on the top. Addison asked for a pirate costume so I made one for her.
I was on a roll so I did some more layouts for the wedding scrapbook. Here are some pages of Joy and Danny's wedding in 2001. It was a lovely wedding at Joy's home.
Matthew and Jesse escorted their Mom in for the ceremony.
Two families blended into one.
Then this afternoon, I embroidered a shirt for Sarabeth. She had asked for a Lil' Sis shirt to wear to her big brother, Jesse's baseball games.

Luck, love, and laughter,
