Holy ice and snow... After four consecutive days of being essentially housebound, rife with cabin fever, attempting to work from home with two nutty girlies underfoot, we made it to the weekend intact. Barely. I don't think I've ever been so happy for Saturday to arrive. We snapped the computers shut and tried to recover a bit from the chaos of the previous few days. Mainly we ate... First we made fireplace s'mores (so much better with cinnamon graham crackers and sea salt laced dark chocolate), then there were the homemade spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and finally I whipped up some (criminally good) brownies. Never fear, we tempered our considerable sugar intake with ample living room dance parties. I also re-thought "Operation Valentine 2011" after I realized my original approach was going to take about 20 minutes per card (Japanese masking tape "bunting" is time consuming) and, between both girls, we had to make 56 cards... I was not digging the math on that one. So, inspired by these genius valentines, I pulled out the red, pink and white paint, some brushes and a stack of paper, and the girlies set to work making a few masterpieces. We picked two favorites, scanned them into the computer and printed out our own little homemade cards. We'll tuck each one into a glassine bag along with a sucker, seal with a little heart shaped sticker, and voilà, done and done. How was your weekend? What do you guys do when the weather has you stuck indoors?
p.s. don't forget the lovely Satsuma Press/Earth & Sky necklace giveaway ends tonight!
