Winter Wonderland...

Two weeks ago I promised to show you what I did with this Silhouette file I shared with you all. Then life happened and I didn't get around to it. Woops!

First we had snow that just had to be played in. Then more snow came... enough to weigh down the trees. Those branches are normally above the doors you see in the photo!

Weighed Down Branches

Then it melted and got icy and trees everywhere started falling.

Fallen Tree

And the fallen trees made a mess - everywhere. While we were lucky to never lose power, we did not have cable, phone or internet for nearly three days. Wow - I never realized how much I rely on technology!

I enjoyed hiding out in the house with my family. It felt like Christmas all over again. Except this time there was snow too! It was so nice to have my husband home and get many things done! I have lots of projects to show you - but for now - enjoy the winter beauty!

Looks like the same weather we had 2 weeks ago. We are in the Tacoma, WA area. You must not be far away.
