Yep, it's after 2 am again. And here I am blogging. Now, why am I so tired all the time? hahaha
As mentioned yesterday, Orla and I went to go see the Grinch on Thursday night...and although we got home late, I had an itchin' to stamp. So at 11:30 down I went to my craft room. And here is what I came up

The snowflakes are a total rip off from Anna Wight. They are covered in real crushed glass. Very cool stuff! You can read Anna's tutorial here. I got my Diamond Dust on Ebay. And I am pretty sure that 6oz will last me quite a long time. I am including a close up of one the snowflakes for your viewing pleasure. :) Remember that you can click on any picture to see it larger.

Any plans for the weekend? I am going to try and get my Christmas tree up. (I am sure that between Maeve and Guinness that tree will be the death of me this year!) DH works on Saturdays...so just like every other day it all depends on the kiddos. Declan hasn't been feeling well this week. He stayed home from school on Wed. I sent him on Thursday, but I am going to keep him home again today (Friday). So I hope that he starts to perk up over the weekend. We are expecting snow here on Sunday. But we can't really get an answer on if it's going to be flurries or significant accumulation. The first few sizable snowfalls are fun. Even in my 30's I think so....but by late February and March I have pretty much had it with the snow!

All righty...off to bed I go.

Have a Relishable Weekend!
