A Friday update

Winter weather is back in Des Moines, and I was pretty excited about it all day. I knew the 50 degree temperatures weren't going to last, so I never really allowed myself to get used to it. Today's heavy snowfall had me in the mood to putter, clean, craft, and be happy I did our food shopping yesterday.

I also made this little bag for Big Sis. We don't do much for Valentine's Day, but when I was working out one morning last week, I saw MS make this on her show (With Joan Rivers of all people. She is not who springs to mind when I think "crafting" and "Martha"). It's my silly version of The Heartfelt Bag. I used stuff I had around the house, and I think it was the perfect project for a snowy evening with kids tucked in bed early. The bag is lined with the same stripe-y fabric as the letter and hearts. Not my finest work, but it will do in a pinch.

I wish I had your positive attitude about the snow! I allowed myself to get used to the 40s and 50s and now I find myself wallowing in self-pity!

I'll get over it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I LOVE the bag... and I love the chocolates that were waiting for me at my door yesterday when I came home. Amy, you're the best!

I never got used to the warm weather either, but I sure did enjoy it! I must say that sitting on my couch yesterday with hot cocoa watching the snow fall while babies napped was therapy for the soul.

Happy Valentines Day to you!

WOW!!! I love the bag. You continually inspire me with all you do. Been thinking about you today. Happy Valentines day.
