Saturday January 21, 2012

Good news we have power .. It came back on last night so that is sweet. We went with out for about 40 hours, we used the generator only at night for a few hours as we only had a little gas. It's been raining a lot since last night so the snow was down to about 5 inches in the driveway so today we were finally able to leave the house and we got three 5 gal. gas cans and filled them so we are ready but sure hope it doesn't happen again anytime soon. That sucks..I don't now how the mid west and east coast manage. Really feel for those other states that get slammed. I am sure glad I had my craft room with big windows and the bright snow did help with light.. LOL

Hi Billie, what a beautiful card. You sure are talented. Thanks for sharing. My computer and phone went off over the weekend and I was without both for about a day and a half. Gosh, it was like losing my right hand, LOL It's amazing how much we depend upon these things. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

What a beautiful spring-like colorful card you created during a snow storm and left without power. You have a wonderful talent, so glad you share with us. This was one of my favorites on this page, it brought an instant smile to my face! Keep doing what you do best!
