How Long Till it's Spring?

I am ready for this cold snap to end. This morning our front door was frozen shut. It took a few good kicks to get it to open. It was only -22 outside. Brrrrr. Now it's 6 degrees, finally it's above zero. I will be very happy when it's spring outside as will the kids. Anyone else feeling too cooped up this winter?

Project 365

Like many on the Cricut MB I have jumped on the Project 365 band wagon. I'm trying to take one photo everyday to chronicle 1 year. I haven't decided how I'll display or scrap them. I might look at getting 12x12 collage prints from Costco. I'd like to do one Layout per month but that might be pushing it to get a month on one layout. Most examples I've looked at are doing 1 week at a time. Either on 1 or 2 page layouts. Another option is finding an online album. I have some research to do.

I need to download more pictures but here's the first 6 days of pictures.

I'll start off with a shot of the calendar. It wasn't very full, now it's packed with all my activities.

A day we didn't do much so a picture of the cat fits today's photo. This is Anabelle, she's 3 years old. She's not a lap cat but she's very friendly.

My new embellishment center. This is before it was completed.

For several days all Abby would eat was cereal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks was cereal.

These are my prescriptions pills I take daily, only one is "take as needed".
One of these I'll probably take for life, the rest I hope to someday stop. The ones for my headaches I'll probably be on until we find the source of them.

There's No Place Like Home

My favorite show is about to start this season. A few years ago I started watching Lost on Netflix. It is one of the most confusing shows and I am addicted. Tonight they are replaying the last 3 hours of last season. Next week starts season 5. Happy Dance!!!!!

Tonight starts with episode "There's No Place Like Home" in homage to Wizard of Oz. I love the titles of the episodes, the Writers include them in the mystery of the show. With each viewing, titles included, more pieces of this show come together.

I'm looking forward to this new season.

Name tag contest....what to do....

Plans are being made for a Swarm in April. I had lots of fun at the one last year and so far some people are returning so that's good. I'll be heading up the Name tag contest. Hmmmm.....I have to admit, I'm not sure what to do. Tomorrow I'll do some online research, get ideas. One good starting rule might be, they must have at least one piece cut from the Cricut on the tag. It is a Cricut Swarm afterall! Let the bugs unite!
