You're probably thinking, "Hmmmm, snowmen and daisies?....What an odd post!" While we hope spring is around the corner, we remain Frozen (haha). I just thought I would share a few random projects that I've been doing lately...

This is her big debut! Matilda the cow. When I went up one weekend this winter to study painting with my friend in Boston, I told her I really wanted to paint a cow, and I wanted her to teach me how to paint more quickly. After the original sketch, I began painting in my typical meticulous way. After what seemed like only a few seconds, she said, "Move on! Paint a different part!" She had me flying all over the canvas, and all I could think was, "This is going to be a disaster. It won't even look like a cow!"...

Happy President's Day! Here are the photos from the wedding reception that I promised. You can read a little more about the idea behind it all here. It was held in our church cultural hall...which is a bit of a challenge to decorate. I didn't attempt to take photos in there because I wasn't sure how they would turn out. However, the photographer (who happens to be a friend) shared these photos with me to use on my blog, and I just played around with them a little bit more for this post...

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm not so sure that I believe in global warming. :) It seems like global freezing over here. While I shoveled snow this morning, my neighbor said they reported 19 inches at the airport, and three more inches expected tonight. (that is in addition to what we had the other day) With President's Day on Monday and being off both Thursday and Friday, the kids have a five day weekend. I decided to forgo the treadmill this morning, because I knew I would get plenty of exercise. :) I got to the point where I didn't know where to put the snow anymore! I'm just grateful that my shovel has survived all these snow storms, and that the sun came out to melt what was left of the ice underneath.
