Let It Snow...

We've been doing a bunch of sledding and xc skiing here, with three snow storms in three weeks.

I love decorating the house with snowflakes, especially in January when all the Christmas decorations are gone. I know, it's cold, it's miserable. To help get through the doldrums, I embrace snowflakes, and we usually try to get away once a month. I really look forward to these weekends! We will go xc skiing in a couple weeks. So along those lines, I finally ordered some Flurry Decor Elements, both white and Bashful Blue. I split them up, mixed and matched, to apply to the front door both this year and next. From the inside -

From the outside -

And Little Missy taking a picture of me taking a picture of her. :)

And on a snow day, it's a perfect time to create create a card I've been saving to make this time of year... sledding Build-a-Bear. .

Too, too cute!
The bear and sled are adorable. Love the snowflakes on the door. I've considered putting them on my door simply because they'll be the only ones we see (in FL). Think the neighbors will laugh? lol
