Here's a brave songbird chirping along, in the cold New England winter.  She warms my soul.  My friend, Lisa, via Melissa introduced me to a wonderful place to hang, called Brave Girls Club.  What inspiration.  Check it out!

Enjoy hearing the sounds of life today!

71 inches!  Record breaking snow fall this year in Connecticut.  It's snowing right now, but only a soft powder and lightly, very lightly.  Here's a picture of what is left of my angel bird feeder, and to the right, my bird bath is under snow.

Joined a few scrapping sistah's on Skype last night; Lisa, Melissa and Susan.  Made two cards, while chatting away.  Nice visit with the girls.  I make cards for the person in mind.  Thus the, um, unique look of each!   
Off to studio, more cards to make.

It's almost time, according to the weather folks, for up to 10 inches of snow to commence. These pictures were taken four days ago, after the last blast of snow.  This is a close up of a 6 foot icicle!  Mighty big and you hear them kaboom every so often, when the sun warms up in the big state of Connecticut. 

This is one of Connecticut's tobacco barns, down the road, all covered in snow.  They are the prettiest barns I've seen, distressed, rusty, all the down and dirty goodness that I love so in nature and art.

My snow garden, full of plants longing to bloom this May.  My chair, wonder if I'll see the top of it after this storm.  It was actually that dark and dreary outside, when I took this almost white out conditions, picture.

Keep the faith, keep warm


My New Year's resolution, to make all the family cards for the year.  And so far, so good.  I'm up to February.  With the snow storm about to arrive, I'll have more time to finish them.  Nothing like a good Nor'eastern to keep you in your studio.  I used Stampin Up stamps, Glimmer Mist and some pretty beads and flowers for these.  A bit of distress and they are ready to be mailed!  YEA!
