Baby, it's cold outside!!

Sheesh!!! I haven't been able to get warm for the last 2 weeks! It's about 15 here today. I can't imagine living in Alaska and other super cold places!! Pennsylvania is cold enough!! I am ready for spring!! I want to see green again, hear the birds sing, let the kids run off their energy outside and most importantly, go camping!!!

We've had some dustings of snow here, but not enough to make any snowmen. The kids did go out and play in it a few days ago. They used Jack's dump trucks and diggers to tow the snow around. If it's going to be this cold, at least it could snow enough to make it worthwhile!

Not much is going on here. We've been staying indoors playing games, reorganizing and purging! I really need to get in my scraproom and clean up so I can create!! I've been itching to do it for the last week now!! I managed to get one layout done but can't share it just yet.

Here is a layout that is in the Jan/Feb issue of Memory Makers magazine. I did this back in July, right before I decided to go back to work. I had such strong feelings about it and this layout just flowed without any thought! It's like it made itself! Gotta love when that happens!!

This is actually a scan of the magazine page. The file is on my laptop, which interestingly enough, is at Geek Squad again!! I hopped on it last week, picked up my coffee for a sip and the stupid handle busted off and poured coffee all over me, the couch and my laptop!!! Thank goodness for the accidental handling plan I have on it! This is the second usage out of it! Definately paid for itself already!! While dropping the laptop off, we decided to buy a desktop computer for the "family computer". We've been pondering getting one for the kids to use anyway and the time had come!!

So, I'll leave you with this. Stay warm!!

Congrats again on the publication. I love seeing your pages in the magazines... makes me feel like I've had a brush with fame. :)

Rock on with your bad self!!!!!!


Love the layout (as usual).

I 100% agree with you about this whole freezing-cold-but-you-get-NO-snow crap. Totally bogus. I hate winter.

Marieke said...

I don't like winter either. Because we got no snow here. Boohoo! Just driving freezing rain and wind. He he, summer has been treating us alright so far...;-). Congrats on the pub.

Love your " Litman & Crocs" LO !
We ( moms) should do this.. you have inspired me to
"reveal" my self in a LO like this,
it's something wonderful to share with your kids and I think children will appreciate as they get older ... what mom did ! Thanks for sharing !
(and yes... we need some snow !)

Andrea Amu said...

I saw this in the mag! Great one, girl... congrats on the pub!

And yep, sadly I know what you mean about this nasty cold winter! I am sick of it too!

Marlene said...

Beautiful layout.....naturally!

I'm not crazy about the cold, but I sure do love the white fluffy stuff!
