So ,the question is, What does winter mean to me? Here in the Midwest, it means cold and snowy. That was never truer, than last February. We got hit with a winter storm, where is snowed for 24 hrs straight. The total snowfall was somewhere just below 30 inches in that 24 hr period. The storm shut down one of our major expressways, with over 1,500 cars stuck overnight.
I have lived here all my life and I am still not a fan of the cold or snow. For me, I only want snow on Christmas day.
In this layout, I used a photo I took the morning after the big snow storm. You can't even see my front porch. It took my DH hours to shovel us out. So for me, winter is cold, snowy and messy. I am truly a warm weather girl.

Here in Ontario when it gets down to -40 degrees, there are times when I just cannot express how welcome spring time will be. That being said, as the years go by, I do try and appreciate winter for what it is and the special activities it brings. If anything, it makes me appreciate summer that much more!

For my New Year's inspired layout I picked out some bright papers and contrasted them against a stark white background. I included four pictures I've taken of myself so far this year.
Thanks so much for looking.

Happy New Year Everyone....
Wishing you all that you desire in this coming year.
I created this layout to remind me that I love what I do for a living. I am so very lucky to be able to make a living with my art. Which leads me to working most all the time. I am not much of a resolution kind of person. However, I will be making more of an effort to keep a routine.
Something like this.
5:30 am Studio Time
8:15 am Say goodbye to my Husband and Son
9:00 am Emails, Proposals and more studio time
12:00 pm Lunch
1:00 pm Studio and errands
3:00 pm Workout
4:30 Mom hat on.
Let us know what your endeavors are....
Warmly and Kindly-
