Thank you Mother Nature...

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you March in Minnesota. Yuck!
And there is probably another 3" coming. Again, thank you mother nature. Don't look to me to be doing you any favors today.

Ironically we bought Owen a tricycle last night! And weather like this, where I have to stay in the house, makes me do crazy things. Like think it would be fun to color easter eggs with a two year old. Perhaps I need to talk myself out of this....


This is a collage I'm working on. It's a 10" square piece of board with various pieces of book pages in the background and then acrylic over it. The squares are outlined with a sharpie marker. After I got this far it started reminding me of the Brady Bunch so I had to stop. Maybe today I'll work on it a bit.

Yuck! I don't blame you for being upset with Mother Nature! I'm pretty sure there should not be snow now.

I can't wait to see Owen on his new trike!

Love the collage. Great colors.

Love your project! And yes, here in Illinois, we got swamped with the snow too.... Gotta love the midwest! LOL

Lisa said...

Oh, but I love all those colors, I bet you do something wonderful with it. We still have snow on the ground here and have had a smattering here and there. I'm so wanting the snow to leave us. It snowed the whole time I was in Juneau too last week, yuk!
I feel ya!!
