Winter Storm

We are in the middle of a big winter storm here in Massachusetts.  It snowed all day Thursday and it will probably continue for a good part of today.  It is a light and fluffy snow with that pretty sparkle that makes it seem magical.  The snow made me think of a project I did a couple of years ago.

This 6 x 6 shadowbox tray from 7Gypsies is really fun to decorate.  I did this when I was working with Creative Charms.  They no longer sell to directly to consumers but I am sure you can find similar embellishments.  You can read all of the details about this project HERE.

We are having a family party this Saturday and I decided that it would be best to get out to get the food on Thursday - just in case conditions were not great for a shopping trip today.  It looks like that was a good choice since the Governor has closed state offices and has asked for people to avoid unnecessary travel.  When I was at the store, I saw this car with the windshield wipers up and wondered if some of you who live in warmer climates have ever seen this before. 

When it gets very cold and snowy and you need to leave your car parked outside, raising the wipers will help you avoid the problem of chipping the ice away to make them functional.  I am doing my own version of Project Life/Project 365 and just trying to take a photo each day of something "ordinary" that I notice in the world around me.

We will probably be snowed in at least for a while today - I may try designing some new snowflakes.  If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I have a "thing" about snowflakes.  I just wish there weren't quite so many of them in my front yard right now!

Stay safe and enjoy the snow day if you also live in the area covered by this storm.

  1. Your love of snowflakes (on paper or photos) is shared by so many of us that follow you.
    Living in Canada you would think the little tip of raising the wipers would be well known. That is the first I have heard of it but what a great tip. Thanks.
    Happy New Year to you and yours.
