The Weather Outside is Frightful!

It is cold and dreary here in the northwest... In fact, we got about six inches of snow last night! The puppies had so much fun investigating, and within just a few minutes, the back yard was completely covered in paw prints! We had to make several trips out, warming up by the fireplace in between. It is mostly melted today, but we have more on the way for Tuesday.

There's no better way to spend a dreary day than to work on minis! I have made some good progress on my (not so) secret project, though I am still waiting on a couple special pieces to finish it off. It's character has certainly emerged, and it fits my daughter to a "t". She's vibrant and fun and full of joy!

Material  for both aprons and tea towels printed on cotton fabric.

Natasha's apron assembled.
Here you can see where the apron will hang.
It was tough making sure nothing would stick out too far
and prevent the cover from closing!

I am still working on what will be included on the table shelf.
I think I am thinking too hard.

The chipboard shelves I made using the Cricut worked out wonderfully!

This is really my first time working in "mixed media",
so I spent a lot of time toiling over what to do!

Here is the back cover. I have made several pockets for storing
family recipe's which I'll re-write on recipe cards that are part
of the Kiss The Cook line of products.
I am astounded that there is only two weeks left until Christmas, and three until 2016 is completed. I hope all of you are able to make every moment count with those who mean the most to you!
