Knitted Bag

Hello everyone. I promised to post a picture of the project I made at the knitting retreat I attended in November. Here it is. It is a small bag. We learned how to make the diagonal. It was intriguing and fun to do. I do have yarn to make another one, but I haven't started it.

Tonight's traffic getting home from work was very, very heavy. That's the nicest thing I can say about it. I am home now and don't have to worry about it tomorrow as I am taking the whole day off. I'll be going to Christmas Eve dinner at my friends, Debbie and Roger, home.

After Christmas I can post a couple of things I made for gifts. You know I don't want to spoil their surprise.

Merry Christmas to all!

Back to Cards

Enough of the snow already! Back to crafting. I made these ornaments using Stampin' Up's Big Shot with the scalloped circle die. Aren't the kids cute? Some of the pictures are old, but I love looking at the pictures. I think the ornaments are cute, too, don't you? They are very easy to make. I used the chip board that comes in our designer series paper and glued pattern paper to a piece before sending it through the Big Shot. I thought they turned out nice.

Really, I Cleaned it off

I really did start my car and clean it off. It didn't last long, however. I also took a picture of the tree at the end of my balcony.

Then I came in the house, made myself a cup of tea and started downloading pictures. That's the scene outside my craft room window. The tea is actually on the inside. Really.

Enough snow pictures. I'm done. Time for a book and a nap. Not necessarily in that order. I just heard on the TV that there is over 14 inches at Washington-Reagan National Airport. It's going to be a while before we dig out of this one.


Snow; Snow; Snow

I ventured out, but didn't stay long. I did get my car cleaned off. Mostly. Here are some pics from the great outdoors.

Here's a picture out the front door of my building. I realized as I stood on the front stoop that although I wasn't the first person out of my building, there was no path from the other person. It was covered. Great. Did I mention that I don't own a pair of boots?
There are two before pictures of my car. Lovely.

See the next post for the cleared off car!


Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it STOP!

Enough already! I think we've had at least 12 inches. I've had lunch and put a beef stew in the slow cooker, so I've decided to venture outside. Just thought I would let you know. I'll take some pictures and post them here shortly. I'm definitely not driving anywhere. On TV they have reported that snow plow trucks are getting stuck.
I'm going out!

Let it Snow!

Hello! It hasn't started to snow yet where I am, but they say it's coming. The weatherpersons say anywhere from 10 to 25 inches! Goodness! I'll let you know what we get. That should give me some time to make cards, photograph them AND post them! Do you think?

I guess I need to change the theme sides. I think Fall is over. Now I've got to figure out how I did that.

Stay tuned.

I'm still here!

Here I am! I don't have a picture to post right now, but wanted to let you know I'm here. School is over. (I took English 112 at the community college.) I don't have my grade yet. I'll share when I do get it.

I have been making cards. I even made my own Christmas stationary with Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio and used it for my Christmas letter. That was fun. If you want information about My Digital Studio and how you can make cards, scrapbook pages or stationary with it, let me know. I'll be glad to tell you about it. I'm hoping to learn more about it over the next couple of weeks.

I got the camera out on Sunday and realized that the battery was dead. I have recharged it, but I haven't had time now to take pictures. In the next day or two, I WILL get some pictures taken, both cards and knitting. I might have to change the title of my post to something that will encompass my many habits, I mean hobbies.

Thanks for checking back.
