13 december

good morning, friends.  well, that was a longer break than i intended!  i was under the weather last week and spent most of this past weekend dealing with a massive snowstorm that came through minneapolis.  despite the chaos that has ensued, it was pretty awesome.  the thick blanket of snow is making me so happy right now.  and, i've got a day off because of it, which is pretty darn awesome if you ask me.  

despite the excitement of a snow day, though, i'll admit that i am starting to get a bit of cabin fever.  i actually am sitting down now to make a list of projects to work on so i don't just end up on the couch watching alias all day (which also might happen).  here's a few ideas for a snowy day...

} make lotion (i did lip balm last weekend- will share the results soon!)
} call a friend who's only available during the daytime
} write holiday cards and put together care packages
} knitting (obviously)
} cut out paper snowflakes out of parchment paper
} bake brownies 
} clean up my studio and dream about new projects
} repot houseplants

okay, well, i think i've got my work cut out for me!  hope you all have a great day.


  1. Yay!
    I like your list.
    Been thinking about you guys up there and hoping that you were all ok and safe. Glad to hear it.

  2. yay for snow day! oooh, i've been hunting for a good lip balm recipe - can't wait to see how it turned out. we made a huge vat of lotion a few weeks ago, and we all walked away with a 500ml mason jar full of yum.
    happy snow day!

  3. oh.
    hope you feel better soon.
    they just mentioned the word snow in our weather forecast. it is still very green here.
