Its looking a little different around here from yesterday! We now have about seven to eight inches of snow on the ground, and it is still snowing and blowing. Supposedly it will move on by about 5:00 this afternoon. Not much happening around town today ...other than the kids are getting their first real chance to play in the snow this winter!

Tuesday has arrived, now we will see if it brings the winter storm that has been the hot topic for the past few days. The weather guru's are telling us we will receive 6 to 16 inches of snow with lots of wind. A few area schools called school off for the day, some had late starts, and some with early dismissals.

I finally finished up my Chocolate Jellybean Bunny and my Peter Cottontail Book and got some pictures taken to share. Hurrah!! Now to write descriptions and list them on Etsy. I'm just thinking how far I've come the last few months. I opened my Etsy shop last April with a handful of items. I listed them and they sat there..not so much fun...I was scratching my head trying to figure out why I had thought this was a good idea. Towards the end of the summer, my friend Natalie from Tins and Treasures, encouraged me to join an Etsy team, set up a facebook page and a blog. I'm thinking this sounded a little complicated and outside my comfort zone, but...I've always enjoyed learning new things. Wow- I had NO idea what I was in for. I kind of thought I knew my way around a computer, talk about humbling! I know I would have probably closed my Etsy shop and hung all of this up if it wasn't for the great support from the gals on the PAFA and OFG teams I joined, and a couple of private sessions with Natalie. I have to say a great big 'Thank You' for all the help I've received in this adventure. I am still working on increasing the inventory in my shop, but hey- I actually have a blog, a facebook page, and I am on Pinterest! I have also learned how to do my own shipping, and my photography is coming along. And I've passed my 50 sales mark! I think I will stick around for awhile! Have a great day...Deb

Here is how I made a frame to hang white fabric over to use as a background for photos... for only about $4.50! I bought three 5 foot pieces of 1/2 inch pvc pipe, 2 elbow pieces (L shaped) and 2 tee pieces (like the letter T). I found the pvc pipe at my local Menards. I cut one 3 foot piece, two 2 foot pieces, two 18 inch pieces and two 6 inch pieces. I had a three foot piece left. I did use my table saw to cut the pvc pipe, but you can use most any type of hand saw to cut it too. I don't think a carpet knife would work though, you need a serrated edge! The length of the pieces can be adjusted according to your needs. I made mine fairly big as I have some larger items.

Here it is Super Bowl Sunday. The sun is shining in so warm as I'm looking at this wonderful 'Colors of Spring' treasury I have been featured in. But when I look out the window to enjoy the scenery outside- there are no leaves or flowers. It has been a wonderfully mild winter so I'm not complaining, but I am anxious to see some of those colors of spring outside my window! Hope you take time to enjoy this treasury and have a wonderful day...may your team win! Deb
