My little Verve mitts were perfect. PLUS, I got to use my previously unloved scalloped edge nestabilities. I really wanted to try this faux embossing technique, so I cut out three kraft snowflakes as the 'squares' in the sketch. Yep - this was a big stretch for me, as I'm usually a rule follower to the enth degree. Alas, I'm trying to branch out ;)
Also, up until yesterday, it's been so nice here that I've had a hard time doing much in the way of wintery crafts. I mean, when you're +8C in January, you're doing pretty good! Unless, of course, you're looking to haul your friend out to the countryside for a little XC skiing and there's no snow in sight. Then you're just darn outta luck. But it's now supposed to be about -13 today, so we're well on our way to frosty cool and hibernation mode. ;)
I started my snowboarding lessons last night. Let's just say I think I may have underestimated what I was getting myself into after my two hours of riding last time. I fell on my butt so much that I actually stayed seated a couple of times when I was doing up bindings for a bonus second or two just so I could chill the impending bruise. Now I know how MrP felt last time!
Oh well - Happy Wednesday everybody!
