Oh yeah... so for those of you who didn't see my post on Tuesday- we ended up with 8.5 inches of snow by Monday afternoon. And it wasn't done. Tuesday night into Wed. we got hammered with freezing rain and ice! The secondary roads are still really bad and with it being so cold very little is melting. So yet again I have had to reschedule appts. As it is I don't even know how tom. (Fri) will work out as far as a dr. appt. and grocery shopping. However, we were so lucky in that we didn't lose power like the many thousands of those in surrounding counties. And I did manage to bundle up and take a few pics :)
Here's a hint:
And the end result:
Poor Annie lost so much hair that as soon as I finished she ran upstairs to the spare bed, pulled down the cover and curled up to get warm. I hated to do it but she was getting a bit knotted, especially since she has an undercoat of fine hair. If only she'd wear a doggie sweater...instead she chooses to run to one of the heating vents when the heat kicks on and -if we don't see her she curls up on it, but if we're watching she just stands over it. Quite honestly I sometimes feel like doing the same :)
The Simon Wed. challenge blog theme for this week is "Have a Heart" so I created a tag and an ATC for it:
The final project I have to share today is my completed January calendar grid. For the last 2 years I have participated in Kate Crane's Calendar project . I did want to continue but wanted to do something different. JoAnne Sharpe's Draw Your Awesome Year was the perfect answer because she has us creating a completely different layout for each calendar month this year. January's grid style and drawing only(no ephemera, collage, stamps or stickers) definitely took a lot of time and thought but I'm very happy with it! Wait 'til you see February-much easier, and so pretty :) I'll show that one next week.
In closing I want to thank you all for your positive thoughts and concerns regarding my issues with my health recently. The blogging community truly is the most caring and uplifting group anywhere. Because I haven't seen my doc yet nor have I gotten all the tests done I don't have much news-except that my BP is under control now with the med and the rhinitis is gone!
How about joining in the fun with me at Paint Party Friday, Art Journal Every Day, Creative Every Day, The Kathryn Wheel, and the Simon Wednesday Challenge ?
