The current temperature– 14º F, with a windchill of 0º F. I'm thinking of moving south! I'm so sick of winter! But, since moving isn't very practical and whining does no good, I'll just have to make my own spring!
Over the weekend I went to my favorite junk store and found a few fun "springy" things, then I decided to try my hand at making some gumpaste flowers. It was a fun project and something I will definitely try again.

I found this project in a 1946 issue of Children's Activities. I think it's a great project for kids but I have to say,I had fun making it myself. I'm not a knitter but I love all the great yarn that's out there and this gave me a chance to use some of it. I'm going to hang it up in my cubicle and use it as a wall pocket. Here's the directions.

I listed these guys in my Etsy store today. This is the first time I've listed anything on Esty so I'm a little nervous. Oh well…guess we'll see what happens. I had fun coming up with names for all of them. All of the names are from a list of popular names from the '40s.

Woooohooooo! It's a snow day. The kids are home from school, I don't have to work, can't go anywhere, nothing to do but craft!!!! I'm getting quite a bit done and should be ready to list some things on etsy within the next couple of weeks.

Big C little c, what begins with c?
Cupcakes, concerts, cards and company!
A slightly weird observation I had was that nearly everything we did over the weekend started with the letter "C" . Too many years of watching Sesame Street I suppose…
I cleaned and worked at the speech team concession stand on Friday.
Saturday I cleaned some more, baked cupcakes with white chocolate peppermint cream cheese frosting, and cooked a casserole to prepare for company. Then I went to see my daughter play her cello in an honor orchestra concert.
Later that night I went to another concert. The St. Olaf College orchestra performed here and we hosted 4 of the students for the night (company).
Sunday after I had my morning coffee, I went to the flee market and bought cards, a colorful toy top and a couple of baby booties. I finished the day by reading comic books to my son and carving a camper for a linocut.
Sorry this is such a corny post!
