Snow Day!

Greetings from frozen southern North Carolina. It's another day home from work due to the ice and snow. I know I'm going to be really, really sad when I do make it back to work and have to catch on everything, but I did have fun crafting and creating yesterday. I finished two layouts and got a little stitching done, too.

I started with this two page layout covering the beautiful artwork of the Vatican Museum:

While I was digging around for the papers for the museum layout, I ran across the photo I used in this next layout. It's a picture of me as a toddler. I took it from my parents' house a while back, intending to create a layout using WP Wonderfall line. Somehow, I never had time to get around to it, and the picture kind of got buried. So I drug it back out and finally got it scrapbooked. Here's the layout:

And a couple of detail photos:

I also spent part of the day working on another angel ornament. It's not a ton of progress.

I think I'm going to go back to "The North Wind" for any stitching I do today. Seems appropriate, somehow, given the frozen world outside my window. I also need to shovel my porch. It doesn't get any sun, so it'll never melt if I don't help it along. Sigh! I'm really not looking forward to the task. On the bright side, walking to work means that I won't have to scrape my car windows. Stay warm, stay safe, everyone!
