So the best neighbors in the world were gone over the holidays. They are in my sample photo I used up top! Bob in his signature red shirt! ;-)
I know this because we keep a hairy eye ball on their place and more importantly, their driveway.
Miss a plowing and you mind end up in a pickle with too much snow.
So they dropped off a stack o' presents before they left and ran for someplace warmer with less snow to see the Grand Baby.
I had been plotting and scheming that I really wanted to make these log reindeer. I thought a pair of them with red ribbons to greet them at their doorstep would be kinda funny yet cool.
Here is one of my favorite I've found (& pinned) from Ashbee Design.
For a variety of reasons (sometimes keeping things cleared out from the snow was an all day affair) to THE MAN getting stuck on our trip back out of the woods with logs to use, they beat us home before we made any.
Which isn't to say the wood we gathered isn't keeping things warm around here!
So, I had to get going on plan B which did not involve a chain saw!
Made her some pages the other day.
This one was for her to fill!
Oh Ebony! He is a scrapper of a cat! He is always so helpful....
Here you go! A page with the beautiful photos she got in her Christmas Cards!
I have a new thing I'm making these days too. I'm still in the experimenting phase, which means I'd rather play around than google/you tube how to actually do it.
Found some silky seam binding the other day and I've been trying out rumpled shabby dyed ribbons. So far, really loving them!
Oh and if you see any lonely mice, Ebony is looking for a few!
