Happy Friday folks. We've gotten about 3 inches of snow at my house this morning. It's snowing right now. It's one of those tough weather patterns though because I work 35 mile away at the seacoast where it is raining. Not enough snow here for me to feel I need to call in but just enough to be a pain to drive through. That means I get to trek through the snow to wherever the snow-rain line is. This is when I would love a delay so they have more time to clear the roads, but alas, no delay. I've done this a million times (or so it seems) so I'll shortly be heading off. And I have an all wheel drive car and I'm a tough winter hardened New Englander, so I will be fine also.
I'm back with another page for Art Journal Journey and the latest Vintage or Modern challenge. I'm going vintage today with this page from my calendar journal.
I love the idea of being a farmer, but I think the reality of it would not be for me. As an animal lover, the idea of having cows or sheep sounds fun. BUT, I like to come and go and hit the road every now again which doesn't work with animals to care for. Now I can head off as it's easy to get my daughter to dog sit or we take them with us as they travel well in the car. I can't imagine doing that with a cow. Plus getting up even earlier in the morning than I already do is not appealing. So I guess I will live out my farm girl fantasy with this page in my calendar journal.
I covered the page with this striped paper and then added some die cut hexagons. The cows are a rub-on from my stash, as is the old fashioned printed cardboard button. Then I added the TH girl and a quote that I cut out from a bunch of quote cards I have.
I can't say I've been up in my happy place much this week. It's been cold and dark when I get home at the end of the work day and all my mojo is gone. I definitely have been watching too much tv in the evenings. But, it has made a good time for me to knit.
I finished up this pair of socks for myself. And I've started a pair which I hope to have done to give to my daughter for Christmas.
I'm linking up and sharing this with you over at AEDM.
I am definitely sun deprived right now. Hopefully this weekend I can remedy that a little bit.
Hope you're up to something you want to be up this weekend too.
Thanks for visiting and putting up with my weather woes..
