Here are a few photos from yesterday.
DH demonstrates the proper technique for chucking snow to the top of the pile.
DD and DS are not being swallowed up by the snow but are standing on our front sidewalk, which is totally obscured by all of the snow that has piled up in our front yard. Notice that the snow on our porch roof masks the bottom half of our second-story windows.
We haven't heard the official storm totals for our town yet, but I'm guessing that this storm has brought our snow accumulation total to about 80" since Christmas. Amazing! And so much of that is still in our yard . . .
In other news, I recently came across Amy Tsuruta's Flashback Friday Challenge, a new challenge in which Amy encourages players to re-post a papermaking "first" and taking ownership of the project in the present day. No newly made project required! Sounded like fun to me, so I'm giving it a shot. I'm playing along with Flashback Friday 7.0 which requires us to re-post our very first glitter card or project. OK, here goes:
I made this card and posted it to my Splitcoaststampers Gallery on June 29, 2009--over a year before I started my blog! I made it for the CAS21 challenge to "make it sparkle." The challenge was to add glitter, Stickles, or Iridescent Ice (or similar) to your card. Unfortunately, I didn't have *any* of these products, so the only way I could play along was to use some DCWV designer paper that was already glittered. And that, my friends, was my very first glitter project! Luckily, there's very little that's cringe-worthy here. Hallelujah for that!
Thanks for checking out the happenings here on Bliss Road. I have a few card projects that I've been working on today that I'm hoping to share with you here later. See you again soon!
