We Are Buried In...

Well, the snow finally stopped falling.  One weather station said we broke a record snowfall in 24 hours by just over 5"!!  Another weather station said we were just under the record by 1/2".  The official total is 17.5" at our local airport. 

I'm not sure what our official snow total is here at home but it's up to the bottom of my Mountaineer.  This is looking straight out our living room window. 

Here is a shot looking across the road.  Those cars parked in the street are going to have a tough time getting unburied, especially after the plow goes through (whenever that might be).  There has been only 1 vehicle that has traveled our cul-de-sac and it was a tall Dodge 4X4 truck.

Snowed In...

They are predicting up to 24" inches of snow ... or MORE!!  It started last night with a light freezing drizzle and I think our area missed most of the ice.  We are down to one vehicle right now as BF's is out of commission due to the fuel pump went out.  Luckily mine is AWD and gets around pretty good.  It started snowing about 6:30am and hasn't stopped yet. 

These pictures I just took at 4:30pm and although you can't see really well, the area next to the vehicle had been shoveled about 1:00pm and already has about 3" on top of that.  Right behind the vehicle the snow is up to the back bumper!!

There is a drift up next to the house that would probably be as tall as my waist.

And I just saw this really neat "drift" on top of the roof. 

I don't think we are going anywhere tomorrow!!

A Few Things...

Hi, everyone!

It has been forever since I've posted.  Life has just been crazy.  Kids are growing so fast.  I finally have 1 full-time job working for an insurance agent (I even have my insurance license).  Plus, I graduate in May with my Bachelor's Degree!!  YEAH!!

Since we are snowed in today, I had some time to upload a few projects I've made.  These first 2 pictures are scrapbook pages I made for one of the guys I work with.  He and his wife are expecting their first baby any day now. 

They were both tickled with these!  He told me the next day that they are going to hang them up in the baby's room.  I didn't make it to the shower but I was told that when he was getting ready to open my present, some of the girls commented that it would have to be good since "Jenny is so crafty, she probably even made the wrapping paper."  Of course, I didn't make the wrapping paper, lol!

The next 2 things I'm going to show you use the same image from DigiStamp Boutique, called Pippa and Sonny with rose (found here).  When I saw this couple, I just fell in love!  Then while browsing on Splitcoast Stampers, I found a card with the saying that I'm also using on both projects.

I printed out the sentiment on my computer and colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I am so proud of the little bow, lol!  I used the "fork technique" and it turned out good.  The next project uses the same image and sentiment, just in a completely different way.

This has got to be my favorite!!  I finally used my Copics (I have a lot more to learn but my selection of colors is limited right now).  The bigger hearts on the sentiment panels are the same one that is right above Sonny and Pippa, just bigger and a couple are flipped over.  I think I'm going to give this one to my BF for Valentine's Day (but I will take orders, hehehe).

Some challenges I'm entering with these projects...
Sundays With Crissy ~ Love
Bee Crafty ~ Hearts
Paper Sundaes ~ Valentine's Day
Stamptacular Sunday ~ Whateva
Delightful Challenges ~ Have a Heart
I'm sure there are others that are out there so if you see one, let me know!!

Well, I need to get back to some homework now.  I have midterms this weekend!
