Woke up Sunday to snow again.
A little more than a dusting this time...
...but not enough to plow. West of us they got quite a bit.
I saw flakes this morning floating about on the updraft next to the building, but they're gone now.
Spied a huge crane out there this morning that is moving lumber onto the mystery building site.
What a dark day. 14 degrees right now. Windchill of 1 degree. I hope it warms up a little before next weekend. Dagan and Leah plan to close this week and move on Saturday! I am still too sick to make it over for the new house tour, but Dagan and Leah said they'd make a video for me. We'll all see it together. :)
Three different packages arrived Friday and Saturday. The Prism ArtBin with the 18 compartments...
...I thought might be perfect for the Silks paint jars...
...doesn't quite latch.
If you set something down on it or push down on it (like I am with my hand)--close but no cigar.
It doesn't seem to hurt it, though. So I think they will be stored in here regardless. I like that I can see through it top and bottom. There are color name stickers on top and bottom. Well, supposed to be--three of mine came without the top stickers, as you can see. I have a slew of little Twinkling H2Os that could use a home like this, too.... ;)
Washi tape is really popular right now. It's a paper tape that you can buy in all kinds of prints and colors. I have seen people make their own versions by decorating masking tape on waxed paper or butcher paper. I thought...what about cloth tape? Is there such a thing? And I found white cloth hockey tape!
Big roll for $5.00 and it is so soft! I wondered if the cloth tape would take watercolor/paints better? Fairly cheap experiment, I figured. (And I already do have some masking tape to try, too.)
The final package...my alphabet dividers for my Tangle Binder! Tada! And I got a cheap stylus to use on my cell phone screen when I play Draw Something with Leah. (I found out I am an even worse drawer with my finger on a tiny screen--LOL!) You have to press down firmly, but I am getting used to the stylus for drawing--and like having more control!
Miss Karma enjoyed her packaging, of course.
I've never seen the green puffy ones before. They remind me of the air mattresses we had to blow up (made you dizzy!) when we were kids to use under our sleeping bags when we went camping! Makes me chuckle every time Karma lays across it. (They're strong and don't pop even with a 20 lb cat lounging on them!) I imagine her camping...or...oh! oh!--it could even be one of those air mattresses they use in the pool! ROFL! Doesn't take much to amuse me, does it?
My last two Amazon packages are "out for delivery" today via UPS. Kitty litter, flake fish food, and two unnecessary, splurge items--one for me and one for Karma. ;)
Can't believe I am still feeling so lousy.
But I am sleeping better and that is definitely helping me improve day by day.
I am hoping to get to some creating this week. :)
I may have posted this before, but I just love this quote.
Have a really wonderful week! :):)
