Before I went to bed at around 10pm, this was what my Florida room looked like. I had to shove the door shut and lock it. While doing this my bathrobe stuck to the door because the inside of the door was full of ice. And I got a call at 9:45pm that school was closed on Monday.Thank the heavens we bought that snowblower...this is what was at my back door. Turns out the suburb of Buffalo I live in got 15.5 inches of snow.
Pardon these picks, but it wasn't light out and these were taken with out a flash. When I used the flash all you could see was it snowing. By the way, that snowblower ROCKS! It may sound like my vacuum cleaner, but it cut though that snow fantastic!!
The snow came out this afternoon. My in laws live south of me and they are still getting hammered with the white stuff.
Psssst....yep I still went out to 'clean up' the driveway with my shovel.

I went out to shovel at around 11 am and holey moley lots of snow already! That's when I let the kids, my son and the girl I babysit, out to play. They had a ball.... And then it was time to come in....freezing!! BRRRRR cold!I went out a couple more times and it was a mess! When the plow finally went by we were plowed in. I have to share a funny thing about me. I am the person who shovels in my family. I am anal about going out and getting the driveway clean. My friends make fun of me. I will not mow my lawn, but I LOVE to shovel. I am not a fan of the cold, but I LOVE to shovel. I am MY father's daughter. As a child I have many memories of my dad going out and shoveling all the time. The funny thing is I never really went out to help him. When I moved out 15 years ago my father gave me a shovel. He put my name on the handle and put polyurethane on it. He told me to keep it in the trunk of my car. One of the BEST pieces of advice he ever gave me. I was one of a couple people who had a shovel that day in Nov 2000....it ended up being one busy shovel. I had that same shovel until 3 years ago when it finally broke.

I did make a friend for Sherbert. This snowman didn't make it into my shop, but it will next fall.
I have lots of ideas for Valentines Day & Spring. Hoping for some sneak peaks in the beginning of January.

I am not a person who usually gets political, but this is an issue that will effect many people, even me. I will have to stop selling my bracelets or make sure that I say they are only for children over 12. I have also been talking about going into business with my mother to sell her embellished clothes for children (remember these). If this goes into effect that will never be able to happen. I do not have the money to have the items tested or the money to pay the fine.
The New CPSIA Regulations - Everyone Please Take Note!
As of February 10, 2009 anything intended for children 12 and under HAS to be tested by a third party for lead. While this may sound good, especially with the issues we have seen with lead found in toys recently, the impact on retail will be huge. This law will effect all people that sell anything for children. This includes e-bay resells, salvation army (yep no more donating children's old clothes), craigslist and people who have small businesses that make things for children.
I found this article over at Happy Panda interesting and helpful regarding this issue. This article over at Cool Mom Picks & this article at Mammalicious Finds also has more helpful information.

This set was a present from me & her daddy. I won this personalized tutu & hat along with a personalized t-shirt from ItsyBitsyBunny. I can not tell you how GORGEOUS this set is! It's absolutely beautiful! Lily's name is embroidered on the pink ribbon on the tutu. She did a fabulous job. I am taking Lily to get her professional pictures taken in this after the first of the year.
