ATC and weather update!

I made this atc into a file folder and on the inside has all the details about Christina's life. 
I thought it would be a fun way to do an atc for "what's in a name" theme.


This is the kind of temps we've been dealing with for the last 2 days.  Last night we had wind chills of -40F. We luckily didn't lose power. We did get lots of snow too, and the roads are not very good.
 School is closed again tomorrow...
But hey there is a warm up on the way!

Baby its cold outside!

They are calling for extremely cold air here in Indiana.
 (As well as some other states)

We've already been seeing temps below zero but tomorrow is when it starts to get really bad.  Heavy snow 8-12 inches, with blizzard like conditions, actual life threatening temps of -20 to -25 and the wind chills -50. Coldest air we've had in 20-30 years. 

We're in the black.

We will all just stay inside where it's safe and warm.  
Lets hope there are no power outages.

Mixed Media Postcard

Happy New Year!!!!!
is here!

For my first post of the new year is this fun mixed media postcard I made. There are several layers of papers, paints, stamps, etc. It started off to be collage but then I got carried away and it became mixed media. I do like how it turned out. Pin It
