Iced In... Creations Galore!

So. I guess that by now you all know that we are indeed iced in. It just keeps coming down! I guess I should have taken a photo before it began getting dark, but I just didn't think about it. Yup, iced in - solid slick stuff!

Well, my crafting friends all know what 'iced in' translates to! Yee Ha - off to the craft room for HOURS and HOURS and HOURS!

I have a class upcoming - it is supposed to be on Saturday, but I'm fearful that won't happen! It will more than likely be next Saturday. Our project for the day is a 2009 Calendar. The store that we will have class in has tons of patterned papers the owner wants me to highlight this time, so the stamping is at a minimum, and the paper is the 'star' of the class. I'm not giving any Calendar sneek peeks in case any of my ladies are reading, however.... for each calendar page, I have also created a very very quick card highlighting the paper being used on the calendar page to show another use for it.

Since I am iced in, and bored out of my mind, I am going to include photo's of January through June in this post, and July through December later tonight or tomorrow.

Before I go, I have to tell you that my DH of nearly 37 years still surprises me with fancy gifts whenever he has the opportunity! I know I've said it before, but he IS a keeper! Anyway, I've been going through a pretty rough time lately emotionally, and sweet Manley Stanley brought me a gift last weekend! It's pictured below! Can you believe after all these years, he doesn't regret the question he never asked? Lol - it's really a joke between us. We had our first date mid-December, were married the first week in April, and neither of us can remember either of us actually saying "will you marry me".... so - he finally did it!!!

Enjoy! Have a great Tuesday!
