And the power is on!

Ten days without power, and ten days of scrapping by flashlights and candlelight.  And  now, we are blessed to have power, phone and internet back.  You just don't realize how much you use things until they are gone.  Here are some of the layouts I did by candle light.  It was fun, but by day 7 I was frustrated, reaching for something that ran on electricity.  But it taught me to use what I had and to keep it simple.  Oh and paint, glimmer mist, etc...takes longer to dry a 45 degree cold room!  The things I learned...











I'm so excited, I get to take a mixed media class at Inspiration Station, in CT this coming weekend.  I can't wait, it will be so much fun.
Hope all is well for everyone.

This reminds me of the winter here a couple of years ago and us without power for 10 days. It was awful! But you were so creative. Look at all your layouts! Amazing! Love them and all that you did with paint! Just paint and paper and look at all this! Beautiful!

Look at you! What great lo's. Have fun at your class. I'm so glad I finally took one myself making my g45 Wizard of Oz mini-book.
