Catch Them When You Can...

It's nice to see the blue sky again.

I had to snap these before they melted away. We are having a real heat wave today, temperatures in the upper 40's. I am sorry to say that Winter hasn't left us yet. It may come back for a little while next week, but it's a sure sign that Spring isn't far away.

Blizzard of 2011

The blizzard started sometime after 11:00 p.m on Tuesday the 1st of February and lasted until 2:00 p.m Wednesday the 2nd. By the time it was over we had 13 inches of snow. This snow drift is as tall as I am. it is about 5 feet tall.
The city told it's residents to say home. Don't go out unless it was an emergency. Almost everything was shut down.

This is my neighbors house. Notice the snow is up to the windows.

February Artful Bag Challenge

Artful Bag Challenge
The objective for this month is to take an object that is not a
bag or purse and make it into one.
The object that I chose is a chinese to-go container. I wrapped it in scrapbooking paper that had a whimsicle touch with the glitter. A purple ribbon for the strap and to create a lock where the purse would open I added a button cover. I kept my purse simple as I would see it being used as a clutch for a fancy night out on the town.

Please visit at Anna at Frosted Petunias, our host for the Artful Bag Challenge.
