More Snowy Snow Snow

Last night it rained and then snowed. 

This is what it looks like outside my back door right now.

We were feeling kind of cooped up but an angel (my 73 year old neighbor) showed up at our back door to show the children how to build a snowman.

Thank you, Ms. B,  We love you.
p.s. I don't think Ms. B reads my blog. Maybe I should tell her about it since she's the one who inspires me so much. 

In other news, my blogging friend Rebecca had a very cool idea the other day. She used Hotwheels as "paint brushes" for her children to pass the snow day.

ch-ch-check it out:

How cool is that? I love this project idea. 
Check out her post about it here. 

Rebecca will also be sharing some very exciting news on this blog on Monday. 
I am so honored that she's asked me to post about it. Actually, she is the one who is making the announcement, I am just providing the introduction to her post. It's something very special so be sure to stay tuned for Monday's post. 

The "Cartoon Clock" tutorial is up on my How To site. 
See you tomorrow! 

Pin It!
