Snow is finally here

Last week we got snow Wednesday through Friday.  It just kept piling up.


Back deck filled with snow.

The cars are disappearing. Snow is past the tires.

Power went out one night so we put our refrigerator goods out in the snow so they wouldn't go bad.
Saturday it finally stopped and we had beautiful blue skies with bright white snow. Gorgeous.



Avery's 1st experience in snow.

Sucking on a giant icicle

It was great family time in the snow. 

New bag, baby!

I had a fun trip to Joannes.  I went mainly to get fabric for making Avery's birthday skirt, but I ended up getting some charcoal grey fleece to make a peacoat for her with some cute pink buttons AND  I came across some apholstry fabric that was 50% off! Love it!  The wheels were turning when I spotted a pattern that I really liked.  I decided to make a bag out of it.  I headed over to the patterns and they can be really expensive.  Luckily I found some patterns for only 2 bucks!  So I got to work right away on the bag and made it in two evenings.  Here it is. . . .
I think it turned out cute!
I used a pretty green cotton fabric for the inside. 
Nice pleats 

What do you think?

I better get started on the other projects.  I need some more snow days.

Christmas dress photo shoot

Today I decided to take some photos of the sweater dress I made.  I used natural light from our slider and turned the flash off the camera.  I love how the light on Avery's face looks bright but soft.
Playing with Christmas decorations. Glitter got everywhere. 

Here you can see the chiffon details on the skirt and the chiffon "snow balls" on body.

Snow balls or flowers?

 Good full shot of the dress.

Having fun in the curtains.
