Snow Day

 Hello friends!  I'm super busy today, but popping in to share my photo of the day.  Isn't it cute?!  Isn't she cute?!  Gosh, she looks at me sometimes and I still see "baby Ava" in her little face... and then other times, I swear I see a future teen.  I realized the other day, that I have way more photos of Ava because JJ hardly ever holds still, long enough for me to focus!  Boys. 
We had snow all day yesterday (I'm a day ahead on the 365 for sanity's sake) and sometime in the middle of the night it began raining.  It's almost gone today, pathetic patches of green showing through holes in the snow.  My man told me that as of this morning, 49 of 50 states had snow on the ground somewhere in them!  Anyhow, I've got my Etsy collection nearly finished, and should be wrapping things up today.  (Then I'm going to collapse, because I haven't worked this hard since my uncle put me to work painting the belly bands of houses when I was a teenager!)  I've still got some silk screening to do, and a few more camera strap covers to sew, then I'm done and can begin photographing them!  (I made huge detachable flower pins for them, and y'all are just going to die when you see how incredibly cute they turned out!  I just thanked God for giving me the idea because they have quickly become my favorite things to make!)  I'm really excited/terrified/nervous/excited/scared/anxious/excited to share it with you!


What are you doing today?

  2. We are here in Maine (snowed in) no less! :) We just finished school and made our planets out of salt dough. It was fun! Later today, we are walking up the street to my brother -in-laws house for some old fashion fun....Monopoly and Pit to name a few. We are even going to watch the new Tim Hawkins DVD "Insanitized!"! Happy Day! :) Melissa

  5. Okay, that just through me for a loop. A girlie named Alli just commented before me and I'm thinking - wait a second - when did I comment (get a little wigged) and then her picture popped up and I realized it wasn't me...LOL.

    Anyway, I'm so excited to see what's in your shop Sasha - be excited!

  6. Love your photos! :)

    We're under a snow covered blanket too, but it's not melting yet! This morning it was -6 degrees. Ouch!

    Today I am doing my final edit on the book I'm writing before I turn it in to my editor for (hopefully) the last time! I'll be doing the same thing for the next 14 days! :)

  7. I'm in California and there is no snow. It is a beautiful, blue sky kind of day in the high 50's! Sadly I'm stuck at work. I wanted to pop in and tell you how excited I am for your Etsy store to open! Your shop will do great :)

  8. We are finishing up school. I am gathering things around for Bible club tonight. I just put the littlest down for her nap and am thinking it sounds like a good idea for myself as well! LOL!

  9. Oh, and wanted to say I can't wait for your etsy shop to be open so that I can drool over all the pretties. Not really, you know...figuratively. ; )

  10. I just can't wait to see your Etsy shop!

    I need to get used to seeing all this snow on the ground - after so many winters with almost no snow, it takes some getting used to for sure. But it encourages the drinking of cocoa and lots of snuggling, so it's all good!

  19. We had three snow days with kids out of school. Today is their first day back so I am using the time alone to sweep, mop, and strip and change all the beds. Such an exciting life!

    Your picture project is coming along beautifully. I think it is a boy thing. My son does not really like to be still and have his picture taken.


    Cant wait to see all your projects.
