Snow day in Georgia

Hi sweet friends ~ has everyone been having a good holiday break?

Recently, we had a snow day here in Georgia!
We do not get the beautiful, powdery snow drifts as our friends might up north (at least not this year, haha).

Grass and snow angel ~ a little rustic, lol.

The one inch plus sprinkling was pretty though, especially since it began snowing on Christmas eve.

While "snowed in" (I can't even say that without laughing), I was able to spend a few precious hours in the craft room here and there.
The honey and I actually had a craft date one night ~ him working on model airplanes at his table and me tossing ink and ruffling crepe paper at mine.  I think this is one date we will have again! ;-)

I didn't have any light blue crepe paper.  What is a girl to do?
I spritzed some Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Hydrangea (blue with a golden sheen) onto white crepe paper.
I love how the colors were mushy with lighter and darker places.  This inspires me to glimmer mist my crepe paper more!

a little feathery goodness and a corsage pin

The burlap texture against the velvety ribbon - yum!

Are there any color combinations you love lately?

I decided to use some Melissa Frances chunky glitter in aqua on this one.
I {heart}anything Melissa Frances!
Love the Maya Road leaf corsage pin on this one too!

French inspired sweetness fit for a queen!

If you would want to take this one home, I have listed it in my etsy store here!

I think I would welcome more snow days, with a snuggie and hot chocolate, of course.
Did you have a "snow day" lately where you did something fun?

Thanks for stopping by sweet friends!

I love those! Are they just the little notepads? Very cool! And LOVE your snow angel. I'd have made one too but I didn't want to get red clay on my coat LOLOLOL

Heidi, Your decorated paper pads are beautiful. I love that you have made something so utilitarian so lovely.

Snow is fun, specially when it doesn't really impact your day to day. I'm just grateful we live outside Boston's storm line this week!
Happy New Year,

Your notepads are really charming! I love how your crepe paper turned out!

My favorite is the blue and burlap- I think you're right- its the contrast that really makes it special.
