Snowed In

We are in the midst of the 2nd snowstorm in less than a week, which means lots of unexpected “home” time for me since schools are closed.  I have been trying to catch up on a few household chores (not fun), and also work on a few projects (much more fun!).  Here’s a peek at what I have been doing…..

Going through jewelry bits and baublesmisc projects 001 2

to start on some necklaces.  One will  feature the most awesome vintage broachmisc projects 002 2 crop

while another will incorporate one of the mini frozen charlottes I  received as part of the Petite Inspiration Box Swapmisc projects 005 2 crop

As I am trapped in the house, I have been getting my shopping fix courtesy of eBay, where I have been buying up all sorts of lovely treasures, including these wonderful tin types that may end up in jewelry as wellmisc projects 008 crop

Finally, I am continuing work on pages for the Young Victoria Collaborative Book Projectmisc projects 018 2 crop

I can only show you just a peek of these pages right now, as I don’t want to spoil the surprise  before they are mailed out.

Out my studio window is a world of swirling white, blizzard conditions the radio says.  Inside I am counting my blessings, grateful that my family is safely at home, that we still have power,  that the High’s Dairy Store walking distance from my house got a shipment of milk yesterday, and that my teenage daughter makes totally awesome chocolate chip cookies!

Stay Warm Everyone!!

    That is an *awesome* vintage brooch. I can’t wait to see what you put together! Plus I love the tease of the pages you’re working on! Got to get mine finished for Pam this weekend!

  • Oh Sue–
    I want a snow day with you and all your lovely jewelry bits! It looks like creating bliss to me! I wish we would get one more snow storm. I really do like them as long as I don’t have to be anywhere!

    Hi Sue~
    The jewelry looks awesome as well as your book pages. Craft room not so good. The piles are dwindling though. Awwww milk & cookies…perfect blizzard food. We are sunny & beautiful here…but supposed to get oh so cold tonight!

  • Hi, Sue: Blizzard warnings are nothing!!! You seem to be making good on your found days. I love that broach. Can’t wait to see what you will make with it. In the morning, Tami and Tracy are coming to my house and we are going on a treasure hunt!! Stay warm with those yummy cookies. K

    Love the miniature frozen charlotte! Can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  • Oh I wish we had ‘snow days’ so I could ‘play’ like that!!!! Your YV swap is coming along sooooo beautifully. And as for all of that bling…wow! Should I continue to pray for snow or not?

  • Wish my snowed-in adventures looked as good as yours!
