Snow snow snow ...and something different for you today

Good morning, and thanks for visiting our Ideas to Inspire blog

I hope the snow isn't too bad for everyone, it started here about 2pm yesterday afternoon and we had maybe 4 or 5 inches.
I let the kids stay out playing until midnight, they couldn't believe their luck.
It's so rare that we have a proper downfall I wanted them to enjoy it - and boy did they. I was up in my attic crafting and all I could hear was the sound of screaming and laughing, there were no cars so all the kids were out playing on the road and it was lovely to hear them having so much fun!
The downside for me is that I have about 6 piles of wet clothes and towels to wash now - strange that everyone always seems to end up here when they're wet and cold and not anyone elses house!
They all had bacon sandwiches and hot chocolate and I think it's a night they will remember!!

Right, getting back to all things crafty and today we have something a bit different to show you, this little post it note holder was made by Claudia Rosa
