Fun in the Snow

Front porch snow
Quite a contrast from the last time I looked at this pot.
Snowing like crazy out there. Part of me loves it, part of me starts to get a little claustrophobic. What about you?
I should be doing anything other than making felt ornaments, but that’s what I’m doing. (I did clean up my closet today, thank you.) I found these over on the Martha Stewart website and am gathering materials to start (its good for me to pick things that I have supplies on hand for, because I need to use up some of these supplies bad). In fact, I’m kind of picking through my ornaments this year and getting rid of some of those fillers from years past. I get in these moods every 3 years or so, like clockwork. Some years I’m looking for the sparkle, other years I’m looking for the wooly, handmade look. I waffle entirely too much. In fact, if I could teleport myself over to Anthro right now I’d buy up most of their ornaments because most are on sale. And they’ve got twinkle and wooly.

    are you feeling orna-MENTAL? Wow, those Anthro orns are too much, wouldn’t you love to design their ornament line? Too fun. I’ve been doing felty ornaments lately too, did you see my ginger-felts? Next year I’ll design a kitty version for you. 🙂

    I get such a great feeling from using stuff up. Making felt ornaments sounds so nice right now.

    I love when you Northern Hemisphere people sahre your lovely snow photos, I have never seen snow in real life so I always wonder what it would be like. It is summer here, although you’d hardly beleive it, it’s such wintery weather, it doesn’t feel like Christmas at all!

    Heh. I probably SHOULD be making ornaments, and yet…I’m catching up on blogs in my reader 😉
    By the way, would you be interested in this?

    Thanks for the link. Using up felt over here, too. I am the same way with ornaments. I enjoy different styles. I’ve taken to decorating different rooms different ways – glitzy on the tree in the living room, woodsy in the home office. Stay warm. :>

    I, too, waffle between sparkle and wooly. I want to enjoy all of the family ornaments we take out of the attic while also finding a new look each year.
    Love the snowy photo.
