It's very, very pretty outside today, with stunning frost and snow, but it's flippin cold!!! -8c is far too cold for me, so I'm putting off going to the post office (much of the post is delayed anyway!!) and doing jobs in the house to keep warm.
I did venture out earlier to take the kids to school, and came back a bit of a nervous wreck after sitting at the top of my road giving way to a car which then slid towards me on the ice. Fortunately it stopped a few inches from my bumper. I hate driving in this weather, I did a graceful slide in the same spot on Saturday.
This is one of the views from my attic bedroom window on Saturday morning. I'd been really looking forward to the Christmas party at the Cubby Hole and although they'd had very little snow in Crewe, we'd had enough to make the drive a bit dodgy, especially in Malc's little car. I can't wait to get mine replaced!
In celebration of all this white stuff, and in an attempt to put off the many jobs I have to do today, I made a tag!
I have a little packet of flowers I crocheted in the summer :)
I layered the flower with bits of lace and organza ribbon, having collaged a plain manilla tag with stamping, dabbing and some music paper (7 gypsies, Paddington paper from The Stamp Attic) :)
I'm going to post this on Jennie's blog as she's been suffering from tag withdrawal symptoms!
Oh and ps, we're introducing our new designers over at The Play Date Cafe this week. We'd love you to stop by and meet them :)
