I've Been Snowed In So I might As Well Create!!

Hey guys! This was the scene at our house yesterday. It was only raining yesterday morning, but they closed the schools. They knew what was coming! It's a good thing they did close because it got slick fast! Schools were closed again today, but the sun came out and melted most of the ice on the street. Whew! I know alot of you have been hit by this storm and I hope that you are stocked up and staying warm!!



Chase would have had to miss school anyways, he has been sick. If he's not better in the morning I am going to take him to the doctor. Kevin has had a cold and has just passed it on to me...so I'm sitting here with Kleenex hanging out of my nose...lol...uggg!!!

Since I have been stuck at home I thought it would be a good time to get started on these frames! I had several custom orders that I just finished too. I have been dying to use some of my newest embellishments and ribbon!! This frame would be great for Valentine's Day, but could be left out year around in the right room. That ribbon is gorgeous!!!
Love the jeweled fleur de lis...it looks so pretty with blacks and golds.

I was so excited to find this beautiful red and gold silky striped ribbon!!! I think it's my favorite so far.

Beautiful rich colors...love the rhinestone flower too.

This flower is beautiful too!

More beautiful ribbons...I don't know what color to call the ribbon with the gold thread. It appears a little pink, but is not, it's more of a rusty coral color. I love the way it changes colors with the light.

LOVE the rhinestone rabbit!!! It is big and beautiful. I wanted to do some frames with a rabbit for everyday instead of Easter, so I was excited to find this one!
Looks good in my bookcase with the cat and birds...you can never have too many animal accessories...lol.
The zebra and red striped ribbon look so good together!

More beautiful ribbons...the tassel makes these frames so elegant!



That's all for now...but more are on the way. If you are interested in any of these frames please visit my Etsy Store
Remember when I said I have some changes coming to my kitchen? Well, they got delayed due to the ice, but will be here next week! (Crossing fingers) Looking forward to showing you all!
I think I need to go to bed and try to sleep off this cold! Have a great rest of the week!!

Kristen they are gorgeous! I'm trying to think of a spot to add one. You know I always come up with something. Love your work.

Feel better soon! Stay safe and warm. That looked scary. Can you belive it was 72 and sunny here today. What??? We were supposed to have a terrible rainstorm. It rained a small amount in the very early am. That was it. :)

Gypsy Heart said...

Gorgeous!! I especially love the first one with the black & red ~ my colors. :-)

Hope you feel better quickly! So many people are ill right now. I'm extremely tired of our icy weather. It has been bitterly cold and can't drive due to so much ice.

Take care ~
Pat

Just beautiful, Kristen! I'd say you put your time at home to good use! I love the new ribbons you got and the embellishments are gorgeous.

Your frames are so beautiful! I'm thinking I might just need an early birthday present for myself! (My birthday isn't until April, but it's not too early for a present, is it??). Hope you and your little one feel better soon!
Hugs,
Donna

They are all beautiful Kristen!
It was a nasty and large storm that hit a lot of the US.
Hope Chase is better and you too.
Stay warm and get well.

LC said...

Those look beautiful, Kristen! Your work is so wonderfully put together. I love my decorative tassels!
It is so bitter cold here the past few days. This morning was -6 degrees. I didn't know it could get so cold in the SW!! lol
I hope you feel better soon. Stay warm!
have a happy day~
