My Sunday Blessings!

 Yeppers, it's my birthday today!! The big ole "48"!!!! And trust me, I'm feeling every single one of those years today, lol! Oh well, I'm still kickin' and that's a lot to be grateful for. Big thanks to Heather for posting this silly image on my Facebook wall!!!! Totally love it!

We started getting snow the day after Christmas, and it's been snowing on and off ever since then. We got another 3 inches or so last night, and everything looks so white and pretty outside. Mind you, I'm admiring it from inside the house, as the cold weather doesn't appeal to me very much!
 Bella & Thomas, though? Yeah, they love it! :D

 Bella's new fox hat!

Bella got a Rainbow Loom for Christmas, and a megaton, box full of rubber bands, beads and charms to make bracelets!! Here she is making her first one!

She's made two for herself, one for me, one for Thomas, one for Sissy and one for Nathan is next. There are a huge variety of styles you can make, and lots of videos on YouTube as well. She's so happy to have another crafty thing to do!!!

Right after Christmas I stamped out a bunch of Lawn Fawn images, colored them with my beloved Copics and die cut them out. Now it was time to get them made into cards and sent off!! I finished the last of them today, and now that they are photographed they can be mailed out tomorrow.

 I made two of these.

 And I made two of these as well.

So 12 new cards going out in the mail tomorrow! Pretty good for me lately!!! I have so many new toys to play with, and while tidying up my room today I ran across tons of things I had forgotten about, lol!! I have so much stuff.....I know, you're shocked. NOT! Stupid stamp companies are always tempting me with "must have goodies" and I can't resist their siren call!!!! Oh well, gotta spend it on something, right?

I'm jealous! We had a dusting of snow yesterday but it's so windy and cold--blew most of it away. We've had wind chill warnings all weekend. It's -7 but feels like -25, it says right now. Was worse yesterday. So, I'm inside, too--LOL!

Looks like Bella has figured out the bracelet contraption. ;) You have been very busy! That's a lot of cards. Yours are always so pretty and detailed. Hope we both feel better this year!! :) :)

Happy Birthday Jeannie! Remember, growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional! 😉
Best wishes to you and your family for a happy healthy (and for yourself crafty) year.

Happy Birthday Jeanne. Enjoy your special day! We got some snow yesterday... followed up with rain! Wonderful set of cards. Especially love the last ones with the doily and the sweet cup.

Happy Birthday Jeannie! Remember it's just a (BIG) number!!!


Bella looks thrilled with the "white stuff". I wonder when *that* wears off? Once you start shoveling it?

We may have rain in WA. but not snow! I am loving your cards as always and once again I missed your birthday! How do I do that EVERY STINKING YEAR? Coming off overnights I am guessing.Well Happy Birthday the card will be late!

It looks like winter has found you. We don't have that much snow at the moment, but a snow storm is predicted here for early next week.

Love the cards! I love the sledding bunny cards the best. (i think it's a bunny)
