My latest collage

So this is my latest collage. I took pictures along the way so I could show you my progress.
Background done and the basic house built.
Added the details of the house and the fence and a few clouds.
Then I added this tree, which I am particularly proud of. Have I mentioned that I got a Cricut for Christmas. I love it!

I was at JoAnn's the other day, and I found these beads. They looked just like little paving stones to me. Perfect for my sidewalk.
Okay so they have little holes in them, but I still love it.

I still have a few more details to add, but this is what it looks like as of now.

Buried Alive...

I feel a little like we were buried alive! It was one of those snows they will compare all other storms to for years to come. It started snowing around 10 pm Friday night. It continued to snow until about 8:00 pm Saturday night. All in all I think we got about 2 feet.
This was around 11:00 pm Friday night
This was Saturday morning around 8:00.
Saturday around Noon.

Just a little later...

These were taken on Sunday....

Ryan and I went out to play and try to dig ourselves out. I am not really a fan of snow, but I have to admit we did have fun playing in it this time. It was a little hard to maneuver in, being so deep!

He said "Mom, I'm going to throw a snowball at you!"

Well, I guess it will be a white Christmas for us! There is no way this much snow will melt before Friday, plus they are calling for more snow, maybe even on Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all! Have a safe and happy Holiday!

a glimpse of NY....

We took a quick trip to New York a few weekends ago. We didn't go to any shows or do anything specific just wandered around the city. We had a marvelous time! We got to put our new SLR camera to the test. Here are a few of the pictures from our Trip.
