Snow Day

School is closed... again.
Federal Government employees in the Washington DC have off again on Wednesday. That's 3 days in a row!
Snow is coming down thick and heavy but we are all tucked in, nice and cozy.
Stay warm everyone.

win a Janome!

Guess what? I know I said I wasn't going to be blogging that much but I've got something to share. For you creative types, there is a new website, The DIY Dish, that offers advice on DIY projects in sewing, crafting, scrapbooking, home decor, kid projects, machine embroidery, hand embroidery, and more!

Here's how to win one of these awesome Janome machines. Go to The DIY Dish and follow the instructions here.
Here are the goods;


okay, I have been sooo bad with blogging.
My dear friends, I have been busy. Busy with the kids. their schools. Daisy Troop. PTO. my house. work. my friends. crafts. sewing. quilting. photography. digital scrapbooking. and so much more.

My unofficial resolution for this year is to get back into blogging... by 2011. Sorry. I am just going to focus on the above things for a while and when I feel like I'm "caught up", I'll get back to it. It can happen. I used to feel like I could do it all but in the past year or so I've slipped on a lot of the things that are important to me. I think I've missed every single birthday of everyone I care about. I hate that I didn't send cards in time. I mean really, how hard is it? I do place blame on the fact that my birthday calendar was wiped out and I'm trying to cobble it together from emails, facebook, notes and old calendars. So if yours was one I missed, be assured I thought of you and am so sorry I didn't express it to you with a card. In fact, when I get caught up, maybe all my cards will be handmade! Yeah, you're right, that's quite a stretch.

Well, this has been enjoyable but I've got to go pack school lunches and make breakfast for the crew. We've had teacher workdays and snow days all this week and I don't want them to be one minute late for school today. Especially since it may well be only today and tomorrow and then we'll be stuck in the house again this weekend and early next week.
