Husbandless on a Snow Day

Sunday, February 6, 2011

As I mentioned in the post before, San Antonio received a "winter blast," as they said on the news. The city practically shut down (freeways were literally closed most of Friday) and Russell was out of town... again. What does that leave a girl to do? Go crafting crazy, of course. One of the projects I did is the "have a heart" project, as found on this blog. Just take a book from Goodwill, some old scrapbook paper, a sewing machine needing some love, and...

... you've got some Valentine's decorations that will instantly bring a smile to your face. Trust me. I like these little hearts so much they might be up a little longer than February 14th. They just make me so darn happy.


I may have gotten a little carried away with the whole "heart theme" and made tons and tons and tons of sugar cookies. Holy moly, these babies are good. Remember Sheri? She is a fabulous baker, and this recipe is a Sheri special. As Lindsay calls them, they are the "Sheri Bird Cookies of Love."


And this next project was another result of a craft extravaganza my friend Megan and I had on Friday night. I've been wanting to attempt making some fabric flower poppies for a while, and I'm pretty sure I like the result. I may or may not have made them in multiple colors. I need to learn when to say "Camille... back away from the fabric flowers."



Anyway, as you can see in the picture, the snow is long, long gone. In fact, this afternoon Russ and I played a board game on the back deck and I think I may have even gotten a little sunburnt. Winter came and left in one week. But the snow was good while it lasted, and hey, it gave me an excuse to stay in, be lazy, and make crafts.

This is one of my favorite posts! I love your Valentine's decorations in the window. They are totally festive and darling. And you look beautiful. Be so grateful you didn't take that job at EY. It's been a crazy week and I'm just dreading tomorrow. That's all. Now we can excuse negative Nancy.

I'm sad that you weren't with Russ during our ever so amazing snow day, but I'm glad you enjoyed a crafty day. Love the hearts, and I want to eat those cookies right now!

You are a speed demon! My hearts are still in stacks on my table (I'm sure I don't have enough yet) and I feel like I've been in flower production for three days straight (I'm hoping I have enough of those by now!) Thanks for helping me get my craft on, I might not be able to stop!

Camille! Wow!! I guess I haven't been blogging lately, so I haven't checked in, but this is amazing!! I LOVE the hearts so very much!! I think I need to copy you if you don't mind! =) I also love the hair flowers- how did you do it? For quite a few months I was obsessed with making headbands/flowers for Macy- every Sunday dress had to have a different one...yeah, it's addicting! I wanna know how you did yours, though. Also, I love your blog design- very clean and calm- I have paint sitting in my garage this exact color to paint my bathroom...someday =)
ps- hi Russ!

Um those cookies LOOK GOOD! Man, I crave those sometimes! Mom loved that you made them and then we talked about Raspberry Tarts. Then I gained 5 lbs thinking about it. :)
