     Enough of this Winter cold and snow I say!  I know it's not as bad here as it is in lots of places around the country, but nevertheless, we're tired of the abnormal temperatures and snow falling every other day.  Irv just came in after snowblowing the drive which was covered with about 5 inches of fresh snow.  The wind will probably cause some drifting, but at least he won't have to start from scratch when he goes out the next time.  Temps are going to drop again, but hopefully I'll get into town on Friday.  We did go in Monday for some grocery shopping and lunch.
     Since I've been home for a few days, I've been catching up on some laundry and playing with some stencils and other things, including a 4" x 4" canvas.  I'd really like to get into mixed media and did a little experimenting on the canvas with acrylic paint, Wendy Vecchi paste, die cuts and embossing powders.  Finally, I added some embellishments.  I thought it turned out all right, but I definitely need to loosen up and do more experimenting.
     I'm posting a picture of the canvas and the snow that looks like frosting piling up on the deck stairs.  Enjoy!
