The Biggest Snow Storm in Mn. in 8 years!

The snow is still coming down! Although the ice and snow is not good for travel, it is pretty!
Will's first flight was cancelled and then they gave him another flight which was also cancelled! BUT he did fly out this evening so he is gone for 2 weeks to Boulder Colorado!

My plans, are to get the scrapbooking room set up and to scrap scrap scrap! Oh by the way I did not make the Design Team this time for the Scrapbook Chalet! I had a feeling so had already accepted it, it is okay as I have some other things happening!

I have a possible offer brewing at a LSS! I am going to continue as a member at the Chalet! Hey why not, I have friends there and there are some great contest, although I will admitt still don't understand that last one.

I also am excited about two new sites. Oh and now I have more time to surf too! Never understood before how people have time to spend a lot of time surfing and dt. and so now I will have more time to do that and get to see some of the new ideas out there!

Congratulations. You are BLUE.

BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY. They seek to genuinely connect with others, and need to be understood and appreciated. Everything they do is quality-based. They are loyal friends, employers, and employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to is their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and give themselves freely in order to nurture others' lives.
BLUES have distinct preferences and have the most controlling personality. Their personal code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy meaningful moments in conversation as well as paying close attention to special life events (e.g. birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable, thoughtful, and analytical; but
can also be self-righteous, worry-prone, and moody.
They are "sainted pit-bulls" who never let go of
something or someone, once they are committed.
When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere and make
a genuine effort to understand and
appreciate them.

You can take the color test here ---> The Color Code
I can't get over
how much of this is
so like me! WOW!

Week 4 Scrapathalon WOW WHAT A WEEK

HERE IS WHAT I did for the canvas challenge at Survivior at the Scrapbook Chalet!

oh and this is another item I altered too which is my first piece I have done like this and I am anxious to another that is fancier and better, the next will be a little larger so I can tighter the lacing in the back better!

This was made with canvas I cut and made into a candle cozy!

Last but not least, I thought I would add a photo of the yard yesterday showing our total snow accumulation after another 3 inches so we now have about 8 inches and we are at -9 degrees right now!

I would also like to ask you to pray for a friend whose husband lost his job! Thanks in advance!
