It's snowing like crazy!




The kids didn't have school today because another cold storm blew in...It is still coming down like crazy and we have probably six to eight inches...The kids played outside for about two hours nonstop..I love seeing all that energy used up. There is nothing worse than the three of them stuck in the house all day! I made another inchie ornament. These sure are fun..They don't take much time either, just working with the little cube to get the glue to hold. I also made a heart quiltie out of fabric paper for the challenge site at http://prettypaperhearts.blogspot.com/ . They do a weekly challenge open to all artists, all mediums with a theme. This week was symbols...I did a tree, one of the symbols of Christmas. I have never participated in any weekly challenge and I think it will be fun.

Oh, how wonderful - your heart is beautiful !!! I am so glad you joined in and you can join in anytime. There are not many rules here at Pretty Paper Hearts. I would like the group to remain a fun time with art. If you get busy please don't worry there is always another week. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

What a cutie holding your latest inchie cube! I can remember having 3 boys snowed in....not very often. Enjoy the white stuff, it's raining here in VA :) Your heart is wonderful too, you make me want to run up to my sewing machine. The challenges ARE a nice way to get going, aren't they!

Hey Melinda! Your little one looks very happy! Love the smile! I love your heart. I have been thinking of trying to do a heart a day or maybe week next year as a personal challenge. Thanks for the challenge site. It is inspiring as is the beautiful fabric heart you made. You really have a talent with the fabric. Thinking of you over the holidays. I just feel that 2009 is going to be your year!
