Snow Day

Yesterday was a lazy, snowed in day and I got some things done I haven't had time to do in forever (like crafts!)

 Made all these flowers for Ruby girl and her headbands...



My friend Kari said I need to put up a pic of this chalkboard I made, so here it is. We write whatever inspires us, whatever God has been speaking to us on lately, or funny things on this board.
Just took an old piece of big artwork that my Mom was tossing out (it was a copy of a painting of a cottage in the woods or something, nothing special. But I loved the frame, so I spray painted that and then painted chalkboard paint over the glass. Voila!)


Then, I made this necklace. I absolutely love it, but it took forever! I think it was worth it though. Fun to have something you can wear that you made.


I made PW's Marlboro Man Sandwhiches. I've never cooked with Sherry before (that's what these mushrooms are being cooked in). Gave it such a good flavor. They have cooking Sherry in the vinegar aisle at Walmart, who knew?!


And the day was also filled with lots of these two.
