Invitations and Snow

In etsy, invitations, paper, planning, ribbon, seller, store, wedding, winter on March 28, 2008 at 1:55 am

I decided to use Tricia’s engagement (the new sister-in-law-to-be) as an excuse to buy some new colorful paper, a stamp and ribbon, to design some wedding invitations. They’re simple enough, nothing too fancy, and so much fun to make! I made some while I watched A Midsummer Night’s Dream last night. Maybe we’ll make one of these options for Tricia’s wedding, maybe not, either way it doesn’t matter, I just love working with paper!







It’s snowing again. When will this winter end?!

I Want Color Back!

In etsy, grass, green, snow, spring, treasury, tresure, winter on February 23, 2008 at 5:44 pm

I was looking through the Treasuries today, something that I really need to do more often, and found this great one! The grass is just starting to show here in the great white north but I’m not getting my hopes up! One year we had our biggest snow fall in APRIL! Hope that doesn’t happen again. Yuk!

I love this Treasury! It’s all springy and makes me want to read a book on the lawn (:

Winter brings mixed feelings for me. Being Canadian and in living in the North, there are few things I appreciate about the cold winters. I love curling up in front of the fire with a book, roasting chestnuts, Christmas and the feeling of family surrounding me around that time. I think that’s where it stops (: I do love the crispness of winter. Not so much the crisp air, but the crisp white that covers everything. It makes it all look so clean.

The beauty of Winter, the pictures, the romantic images, is what I appreciate most about winter. Pictures of a thick frost, a deer in deep snow, trees laden with loads of powder, capture the beauty if it all. That I can appreciate. What I can’t appreciate is actually being there, freezing my buns off, my camera not working because the batter is too cold, wind blowing through my multiple layers of clothing…

I really do love reading in front of the fireplace though. I’ve just finished reading the Memory Sorrow and Thorn series by Tad Williams and now I’m moving onto Skystone by Jack Whyte.

What books are you reading in front of the fire this winter?
