Love it! I really love all the wonderful things you have all created especially that purse!! I kind of like being forced to be tucked away inside. Working on a really cool blanket here...can not wait to finish it. Happy Snow days to you all!

This snow is killing me! We can get out because we live in a subdivision but I still don't like it. I hope it clears up before blissdom!

Ok, so this Yo-Yo Queen's wondering why I wasn't involved in this Cabin Fever Reportoise... or however you spell that? (My piano lesson taking/teaching days are loooong gone.) Oh what fun it is to be cooped up in the cabin... (singing) All together now...

Cha Cha,

Love this post. Don't we all have cabin fever right now. But I must admit, I would love to paint fingernails and toenails with those sweet girls. Hope I can be as fun of a mom as you are.

Thank you for all the encouragement. Your bloggy friendship is such a blessing to me! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
