Another snow day..........PLANS????

So we are on I think our 11th snow day this school year.....I may have lost count somewhere along the road. I thought I lived in Maryland, but I am obviously in the frozen tundra! Enough already!

Our plan for the day will go a little like this:

We will likely play ALOT of these

And we will watch one or two of these......
And I am gonna drag this beauty out to work on a project

And we will do some of this too!

Spring can't be too far off right?????

Dollar store goodies

So I found these little cuties at the dollar store a couple weeks ago. I spray painted them black.
And look how great they turned out below. Can't beat the price!

The Welcome is in my mud room. I love it there!

This one is in my great room on the entertainment center.

Little birdies!!!

All over bloggy land I have seen cute bird decorations. I was having some severe bird envy....my nest was without any cute little birds.

Well.... I was at Michael's with my daughter getting crafty items for her slumber party. We walked down the Spring deco aisle and what to my wondering eyes did appear.....cute little birdies. The were $2.99 and 3.99 but were on sale for 40% off....SCORE!!!

Here are the little cuties I picked up! I may or may not have gone back a second time to get the blue ones....but we needed more craft paint for the sleepover crafts so I was there anyway.

Aren't they cute????

Watching the local news tonight to get the weather forecast.....more snow! Oh great cause we haven't had near enough of that this winter or the last week and a half for that matter. So there was a story about snowpression!!!! I think I have this BIG TIME. So I will be seeking treatment for this condition. I am thinking that involves going some where warm and having drinks with umbrellas. Too bad that isn't in the budget and now we will have no spring break to travel to warmer places....cause we spent it shoveling. Just fab!

I do have projects to share, goodies I bought, and projects I am working on. But those will have to wait until I get some intense treatment for my snowpression.

From fugly to fab

I am gonna break up my snow posts with something a little different today. got this old wooden box free at work. They were cleaning out the church and it was destined for the trash. I decided I would take it and try to do something with it. Well, it sat in my garage for months....all ugly and bright blue. Then, it hit me to paint it black and make a seat out of it for my mud room . So I used paint and fabric I had on hand. The only thing I purchased was the batting and foam. I am happy with the way it turned out. I can store stuff inside too. I have a couple more projects in the works. Hope to get them finished soon so I can share them. Not sure reading all these crafty, home decorating blogs is a good thing or not. LOL.

Snow and more snow and other random babblings

Well we have a snow day here! We got close to 30 inches of snow over the weekend. And what do you need after all that snow.....well some more snow of course. Another storm is headed our way for tomorrow night.

I plan on attacking a few projects around the house today, play in the snow and drink hot chocolate.

Oh and guess what I did this morning.....took the leap and signed up for the SITS bloggy boot camp in Baltimore. Now to get up the courage to attend and not chicken out. Which I have a tendency to do.

Essentials of a snow storm

Birthday gifts.....check
Birthday cake.....check
Milk.......well not quite enough probably (see below)

The snow has started and we are all home! I hope the milk lasts LOL. I dropped the extra gallon out the back of the SUV when I opened the door. There was milk all over the garage, driveway, car and me. I couldn't brave the store again. We will just be calcium dreprived if it goes on too long!!!
