Snowed In

I live in Colorado and we are currently snowed in. School has been canceled for the past two days so I haven't gotten much done, other than playing Chutes and Ladders, and shoveling snow. I'm working on some fun new Christmas cards and other holiday projects so check back soon for more great ideas. Also, don't forget to sign up for our latest giveaway here. You have until Midnight PST on Halloween to get your entry in.  Happy Crafting.
