Lots of snow and keeping busy

We got hammered by a winter storm here...  We got 15.5 inches at our house...but since the wind was blowing so hard we have drifts that are 4-5ft high in places while some spots are bare ground.

Here's a photo out our back patio door.  See the cool swirl pattern in the snow!  Up to the left between our house and the neighbors there was a 5ft drift.

So in between shoveling and attempting to use the snowblower. I've been working on some crafty stuff.

I cleaned my sewing machine..changed thread on both the bobbin and spool...and it seems to be working a bit better.



I made a couple more journal covers..





We also put together our Gingerbread house kit from Trader Joe's. I think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe next year I'll do the really deal and not buy the kit.  I know my girl and I will be making one at her Holiday party at school as well...except with graham crackers. Like these ones.










And in case you hadn't heard what a crazy storm we had here yet...here's a YouTube video of the Metrodome...now known as Mall of America Field..collapsing.

You sure have a lot of snow. Our schools are closed this morning because of the drifting and icy conditions. I hope you stay warm! Love what you made while being stuck inside!

I came by three times and couldn't leave a comment. SO frustrating. I love the gingerbread house. I really must make one one of these days.

Your pothos looks cold against the sliding glass door. Guess that new door really keeps in the heat.

I saw that video on the news and was going to ask you about it, but of course, you had posted about it already. Have a warm day and see you tomorrow for T Tuesday.

I totally spaced out your journal covers. These are awesome. I really like the left one the best.

Your ginger bread house looks so yummy and festive. Looking forward to seeing all the swap pages as they come in.
