Snow Day

We have a snow day! Well, I think it is more like a snow and ice day. We did not get as much snow as our neighbors to the north, south, and west of us, but I think we might have gotten way more ice under the snow.

And, the wind howled last night! It literally shook the walls in my house. There was a point when it was a whiteout. You couldn't see anything but the ice pellets. The door was frozen shut this morning much to the dismay of my dogs. Then when I got it opened, I still couldn't shut it cause the handle was frozen. The creative and artistic side of me marvels at the beauty though. Wonder how many people my ditch will catch today.



My deadline is quickly approaching for the USC fashion show, and one of my biggest problems was to decide on how to package the pieces. I have never done quite like this nor have I ever received a gift bag of this stature. I have to admit I was a little puzzled as to how to package for this event. Well, I have finally decided on these. They should be small enough for the gift bags but also sturdy enough to protect my jewelry. Plus, they have the added benefit of looking so cool. And, to think I made them all by myself!




What do you think? I hope they will be suitable.

I think they are fabulous! And we are in NJ buried under at least a foot of snow.
