More snow!

We woke up yesterday morning to a surprise fall of snow, and it kept falling all day. 
I looked like a walking snowman after the school run,
and then after school we went sleding (it was still snowing)
made an enormous snowman and had a great snowball fight
before sledging home (the wind was blowing the snow in our faces at this point).
As it is Wednesday I am showing you my desk as part of WOYWW. Propped up on the back of my desk is my ipad (put carefully out of the way to allow room for crafting) and my trusty mug of tea (almost empty now and in need of a top up). The rest of my desk is covered with the detritus left after a happy crafting session, namely scraps of various patterned papers, some rubber stamps that need cleaning and putting away, some stickers, a craft knife, some glue and pens/pencils.
Here is the double page smash book that I had been working on.  It is entitled 'Song and Dance'.  The left hand page (the song page) is about me joining a choir for the first time in over 10 years, and the dance page is about Alex's first ever street dance exam (we will get the results in a months time).  I am very much enjoying documenting something about our life from each week this year and I think that the book will be fun to look back on.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

Your smash book is coming along beautifully and it looks like a quick way of capturing those day to day moments. Love the pic of you guys in the snow.... I cannot imagine what it would be like. Lovely to see it all through your little boys happy face.

Hope the exam results are good. Our snow just showed itself and then disappeared which I suppose I shouldn't moan about!! Thanks for sharing your photos, I loved them.

Do you think when it snows outside you get more done on the inside? I don't like the snow all that much we keep getting little non stick flurries that's all. Tamika #126

Hi Caro, lovely photos and what memories they will make. You are doing so well with your Smash book week to week. Yes! I am so lucky having all the space I need but I've got to admit that I would rather have the family here to fill the house.
Lots of love Jo x

Thank you for your visit today, and for showing us those lovely pictures of more snow and the fun side of that. I believe we are expecting more at the end of the week. Oh well, more time to sort out my stamps. I was starting to get confused about what I had and where it was. Have a good week. xx Maggie #20
