Baby it's cold outside

The best thing about snow days is that I get to stay toasty warm inside and play with paper to my hearts content!! Finished up 2 projects yesterday and I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself.

The worst thing about snow days is my little dog hates cold. He hates snow, oh and also sleet, by the way he did I mention he doesn't like wind or freezing rain either? His personal preference is tucked inside the covers where it is at least 99 degrees. The challenge is to get him outside to do his business. This photo is from yesterday, this is before the storm! I haven't even tried to get him out of bed this morning!

Happy Snow Day St Louis!

Holiday Hideaway Door Project

I completed my canvas door project from HOliday Hideaway! It is 3 4x7 canvases hinged together to create the display here.

The door panels are from grungeboard, we did a beeswax technique on top of the painted doors that turned out really cool and of course the snow recipe! I forgot to take a picture after I added the lights but you can imagine!!
