Ezra, Jim and I had a fun in the snow day! We got all bundled up and went to Tyler Park to use his new snow toy in his new ski pants. I got both on the 75% rack at Target two years ago waiting for him to grow into them! It was sleeting when we got there. He mostly enjoyed being pulled in the snow bowl and watching the other bigger kids go down the hill. He finally wanted to go to the top but never wanted to slide down. We were covered in ice when we got home. Such fun!

I should have posted this after the above one. He was too tired to walk at the end of our play date!

Belgian Eyelet Book

I have been wanting to make a handmade book for a while now so before my next hand surgery incapacitates, I thought I'd better get to it! This is a book kit I ordered from Suzanne, at Quietfire Design

Just look for the handmade book kits link. I am terrible at adding links! I can't believe I got this one in!
I chose the green combo and while I would tweak a few things next time that I think would make it more consistent, I'm really happy overall. The kit instructions were easy to follow and next time I can order a refill kit since I already have the instructions.

I added the stamped quote, also from Suzanne, on cream card stock.
