Pink Socks!

Oh my goodness what was my husband thinking????? I am absolutely thrilled with my new screwdriver....but PINK socks????? They are a bit over the top for me....I really liked his grey wool socks much better.....He told me these were feminine.....but I'm NOT a girly girl....that is just not who I am....give me some blue jeans a tee shirt or sweat shirt wool socks and my birkies or clogs and I am a very happy camper.....

Well I am getting very excited .....Anne and I leave early Sunday morning for Massachusetts for the trade show and Monday with Tim Holtz.....I'll keep you posted as to how it goes....I love an adventure......Have a great day. Robyn

Snowing Again!!!! I knew it was going to happen.... it is snowing again.........talking to my friend Connie this morning and she let me know that we usually get about 40 or so inches of snow....we are now at well over 100 and counting.....On the positive side it is March 1st and spring is on its way .....Right?

Oh, my it appears in this picture that it is time to scrape and paint the house again.....didn't we just do that....oh yeah it was almost 5 years ago and I guess that paint doesn't last that long! Well that project will be on the back burner for a while! (wink)

Have a great weekend all! My plan is next week I'll get cranking on class projects!
