It's brrr-low zero in the Upper Midwest with very cold wind chills. The low on Monday is forecast for -15 degrees. We have attached garages, park in ramps connected by skyway to our office buildings and some people actually like it! Ice fishers, snow mobilers all play outside, not me, I hibernate and wait for spring in my craft room.
Yesterday there were snow flurries, pretty to look at dancing around out the window. January for me is snowman season. I dug through the my vintage Christmas cards to find some snow. An easy paper craft using the lid of a box and a sheet of scrapbook paper on the inside. I wrapped the rest of the lid in vintage Christmas paper for the sides and back. Garnish with buttons and rick rack and pieces you keep saving 'for something'.
If the weather would warm up we could get snow. For now, the ski hill is making their own version and the skiers are flying down the slopes. I just turned on an audio book and listened while my glue stick and I happily became partners.
Working full time it's harder to get to the crafts. For all who prayed for me to find something during lay-off and then 'something else' when I only got a part time job, VICTORY! My job is a one mile commute with great people and lots of challenges to keep me thinking!
Here's a link to the coolest place I have ever called work:
