More Bad Weather = Vacation in Snippyville

The weather continues to be crumby here.  Tonight they're calling for more of an icy mess.  That means more time down in Snippyville though.

I snipped a few pieces in the last few days.

Then I had fun trying to photograph them in a number of places around the house.

Oh...and did I mention that my beloved DSLR camera took a dive, lens first, off my desk?  Not good.  It killed the motor in the lens.  = (  Luckily, the lady at the camera store had a used one for sale.  That was an expensive lesson to learn.  (That being the lesson of being careful, which I am not prone to do.)  But I was very happy and relieved to find out that I only killed a lens and not the whole camera.

Anyway, I am anxious to see what the weather holds for us tonight.

Hi Jan, I am sitting hoping for a snow day tomorrow, it's headed our way overnight. I will spend mine quilting!

We're expecting the snow to start tomorrow night and pile down into Thursday.

I think your cutouts look great everywhere!

I'm thinking two-hour delay tomorrow and then snow day on Wednesday. Will these kids ever go to school for a full week?

Jan, you just inspired me...the Iron Craft challenge theme is valentines. I'm going to attempt your heart snipping. Thanks!

We're dreading the snow & ice, too. I should shod my Basset hound with skates to navigate. Would that be hilarious?

I love your creations! I hope the weather isn't as bad as what's being predicted!
