Wintry Weekend Wrap Up

Baby, it's cold outside!!

We got our first batch of snow this year, thanks to some Arctic air. (It's currently a frosty 12 degrees.) Fortunately, we went out Saturday morning to get our Christmas tree before the snow and the worst of the cold temps hit. Here's DH cutting down the tree as the girls watch. (Poor Dad! He does all the work.)

All this cold and Christmas-y happenings put me in the mood for another holiday project for this week's DSB project. These clothes pins were decorated using Nestabilities dies and Christmas Doodles digital stamps from DigiStamp Boutique. The images were colored in with Copic markers and I used double stick "red tape" to adhere the decorative fronts to the clothes pins.

My inspiration was a great little project I saw while blog hopping from The Cats Pajamas blog. Unfortunately, I can't find the link but the project started with a Christmas card display kit from the dollar store - some twine and a few plain clothes pins. The crafter embellished the clothes pins with TCP stamps and Nesties and used them to clip cards to the twine. (If anyone has seen the project, please send me the link and I'll post it here.)

Here's a photo of our current foster dog, Yasmine. Isn't she adorable? She has kennel cough (although a mild case, fortunately) and recently had 6 puppies. She's a good dog and I just know she'll get a good "fur-ever home" as soon as she's all better.

Have a good week! Hope your weather is a little warmer wherever you are! :)
