Bringing the snow indoors & Kim K. winner!

Despite a very slippery/slow commute, we all headed back to our respective schools Wednesday morning. 
 My normal 10-12 minute commute took 55 minutes.
 It took my husband even longer.
 While we were still home earlier this week, I decided that my snowman-themed collection needed to be moved from the smaller sunroom mantle to the living room mantle.
 I have a feeling winter is going to be around a very long time.
No complaints.
 We are a snow-happy family.
This evening's winner of my Kim K. Snow-inspired give-away is Danielle from Blessed Serendipity.  
She was selected by Miss Emma.
Please share your postal address and I'll get your special winter goodies in the mail.
For everyone else, I love giving away my creations as much as I enjoy making, them so you can plan on additional Kim K. give-away opportunities in the future.
Happy Winter!  On Friday, I'll be sharing a "Year of the Horse" Chinese New Year activity, inspired by one of my favorite blogs, "Lets go fly a kite:  Crafting with my kids".

Congratulations to Danielle! She is definitely lucky! Our schools will be in session tomorrow. There have been problems with water pipes, heating, and school buses in this terribly cold weather! Hopefully all will go smoothly tomorrow morning. Everyone will be anxious to hear from the school bus owners! Take care, and stay safe and warm! xo Nellie

Love that little Eskimo graphic; I have the Hallmark Frosty Friends series ornaments, a similar little black-haired girl. I love the snowman theme for January! I do the same thing and they stay up till total Valentines Day comes up from the basement.

Snowman land deserves to stay up with the weather outside. Glad you are finally thawing out a bit..the photos of all that snow are just plain crazy.

Cute snowmen! That's something we miss around here, unless we head up to the mountains. The snow is lovely. Stay warm and safe!

I have been trying to send a little warm weather you way but so far it hasn't been working very well.(-:

The snowman collection is quiet apropos for your weather this year. Happy that you are all okay.

I need to get me more snowmen. Your mantel looks adorable. I'm really loving the snow this year. It could be a little warmer, but at least it seems like winter.
