It's a Snowy Friday

We've had more snow today. When I woke up this morning, I thought the weatherman had really blown the forecast. There were just a few flakes flying and none on the ground (the way they talked yesterday, we were supposed to get hammered). But.....come late morning it started snowing heavily and kept it up until 2:30 or 3:00. Then started up again about 4:00. It looks like it has just about stopped again.

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.

After they were pronounced husband and wife.

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.

That's my day in a nutshell. Wish I had the time to spend more days like this.

Luck, love, and laughter,
