Spring into Spring

Hello All,

Well I can't believe it. Tonight we are suppose to Spring ahead one hour. Usually when I think about springing ahead the weather is much nicer. Well, we got slammed the past two days with about 20 inches of snow. I knew we were in for a big storm with the schools dismissed the kids early on friday. But, I didn't realize how much. 20 inches. Oh My Gosh!! This is my first really big snow since moving back to Ohio. Last year, we did get that much snow. But, I guess this year makes up for last years loss (lol). Trying to shovel was useless. Whenever we would shovel it would just drift back so we just said we would wait until the snow stopped. Well, it is still going so, maybe tomorrow we can shovel our way out.

This is a photo of my puppy venturing out into the snow.

I am happy I was able to get my swap piece mailed off the other day. I recently participate in the Beat the Winter Blues Swap hosted by Viv (Viv's Whimsy). I was so excited when I found out who my swap partner would be. The amazing and talented Debra Schoch (HopHopJingleBoo). She should have recieved her piece. I hope she enjoys her goodies. I will post pics after she gets it. I want her to be first to see. I can't wait to see what I receive from her. I just know it will be wonderful.

With all the snow it is hard for me to focus on springtime but I managed to create a few NEW spring pieces. I will be offering three NEW pieces on PFATT starting March 10th. Be sure to check it out. Here is a photo of one on the pieces that i will have available for purchase.

Okay, stay warm and I will talk to you soon.


Don't Forget to Spring Ahead tonight!!
