Sheesh. Where did January go?! Well, a nice thing about it being February is that I get to look at this pretty picture on my calendar at work now. Thanks, Elissa! I guess it’s also nice that we’re a little tiny bit closer to spring, although you would never be able to tell that by looking out the window right now. It’s like 10 degrees outside and I think it’s been snowing since 9 am today. Enough of the white stuff already!
Alas, check out what I got in the mail from our stepmom today:
Yaktrax! Have you ever heard of these? When I emailed her about the crazy amounts of snow we’ve been getting, she mentioned these but I have never heard of them. And ta-da! Now I get to try them out. Sweet! I was slip sliding all over the place on the walk home tonight so these should be helpful tomorrow. Although, I am a little worried about how dirty they’ll get. Hmmmm … anyone else out there tried these yet?
On a crafty note … I went to a “shoebox” crafting party at Liz’s house on Sunday and had so much fun! There were six of us total and we each brought a small project (plus all the tools and supplies needed) for everyone to make and take home. The theme was Valentine’s day cards but I added a little twist to mine and made favors instead.
I got the idea from Nichole Heady’s blog so I cannot take any credit for coming up with this idea at all. I just think that it’s such a great way to use Avery labels and Papertrey Ink’s “limitless labels” stamp set.
Joan had us make this card with the most adorable stamp of two kissing birds. I am totally digging the red and blue combination going here, and have to get my hands on that stamp! (Um, yes, that is my glass of wine in the background … LOL)
Amy’s Stampin’ Up! cards were pretty awesome! Note to self: get these die cuts!!
