The SNOW Blizzard of 2011

WAHHAAAA~! Can't believe it's already February - sorry for not updating for awhile. So I'll work backwards.

Starting from Wednesday's record setting SNOW BLIZZARD of 2011...we had about 20" of snow. I took pictures of it when I woke up on Wednesday and it was still going. The winds were howling at night...very unsettling to say the least. We were thankful for a warm house and had power on during the entire storm - thankful!

The kids were thrilled with two snow days. Today, the high schooler went back to school. After dropping them off, I hit PANERA's to get some pastries and the grocery store...all of the parking lots were cleared but be careful pulling out of the lanes! LOL!!

Craft & Hobby Assoc. (CHA) Winter Trade Show in Los Angeles
 where SO many crafty goodies are revealed!!

Spellbinders™ had 45 new releases and I am so excited about them - they're wonderful!! I used a few for a layout I created with S5-028 Nested Pennants, S4-321 Nested Leaves and S4-312 Blossom Three...

As for TaDa Creative Studios, they also had a couple of releases - Sizzlin' Summer and Goody Two Shoes which I blogged about last time. Although the Company doesn't usually have a booth at the Winter Trade Show, they do have releases. If you (retailers) are interested in ordering, please go to their contact section. For our wonderful consumers, TaDa also has a store locator to help you find their terrific products! I believe the ship out on these will be early next month.

On TaDa's blog, I created this cute little pennant for my niece, Jessica, using my newest favorite Spellbinders S5-028 Nested Pennants and S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants! For details on how I created this, please visit the blog!

Something a little cute and quick to create. LOVED how this turned out - hope she loves it too!

Thanks for stopping by and keep warm!!

I love your snow pictures. Hmmmmm. I'll wonder what you'll entitle that page once you get around to scrapping it. Can't wait to see.

Glad you had power through the storm and everyone is safe. Love that layout I was just looking at it the other day wishing for green grass and flowers.
