finally. . .snow

Mother nature finally came through over the weekend with some REAL SNOW!  (Insert angels singing here.) 

J and I drove up early Saturday morning.  I usually sleep for the first couple hours, but I was so excited about the snow I could hardly sleep.  And we weren't the only ones hungering for some fresh powder, we saw a more than few cars (with skis and boards) heading the same direction as us.

It was so beautiful!  (No pictures, sorry, we were busy zipping down the mountain.)  It was totally worth the slow, snowy drive through the mountains behind a Raley's delivery truck.  Can't wait until we going again!

Keep praying for (more) snow!

With a new year underway, one of my goals is to just scrap!  Last year scrapping was an afterthought.  I can count on my two hands the number of pages I completed.  Sad!  The truly sad part was that I had so many ideas, but lacked the discipline to sit down and create.

Not surprisingly there already is a lot of inspiration which I will admit to needing.
I'm looking forward to another long weekend, hoping it will be a productive one spent hunkered down in my craft room.  Thankfully I won't be lacking in the inspiration department.

Have a great weekend!


praying for snow

J and I snuck away for some snowboarding over the weekend in Lake Tahoe.  Despite what you're heard, there is snow in the Sierras albeit man-made.  No complaints here.  Snow is snow no matter how it's made, and it is perfectly ride-able, there's just not a lot of it.

Like surfers praying for big waves, skiers, snowboarders, and snow enthusiasts alike are praying for snow.  We were completely spoiled last season with the over abundance of snow (and I totally wasn't complaining then either).

Still, it was a fabulous weekend!  Loved every minute on the mountain, despite the wind and the cold.  Loved that it felt so easy, almost like second nature. 

Guess I need to step up my snow dances if we're going to get any snow before Spring kicks in!

Happy Wednesday!


fresh start

I'm nursing yet another cold!  Not the ideal way to usher in the new year, but it is what it is.  Despite the running nose and congestion, I love the beginning of the new year.  It's like a blank canvas on which to create.  I'm really looking forward to whatever 2012 has in store for me and J.
