Has your Winter Weather been as Wicked as Ours?
I Love Winter..I love the snow, the how beautiful the landscape is covered in white, how amazing the world looks transformed for a short time into a sparkling wonderland!

And then we have this year....

Thursday the forecast was for "Ice Pellets" I kid you not! Not snow, or rain or sleet, or hail or any of that mild stuff but literal ICE PELLETS!

When I was leaving work, half my car was encased in ice, luckily it was only half and I was able to retrieve my ice scrapper and De-icing spray, because silly me, I carry those in my car not my purse! I spent the next several minutes scrapping ice from the windows, and Yes, I was being pelted with ice falling from the sky all the while!

Last week I found this adorable image from Tiddly Inks, called "cast your spell" I knew I wanted to use her in some manner. I was thinking Ice Princess....Winter Wizard-ess.... Then Today's Winter Weather Forecast...and I am so not lying:

We woke up to a dense fog advisory 100% humidity
Which gave way to A Severe Thunderstorm Warning with Hail and strong damaging winds
We also have a developing Super Cell and a chance for a Tornado
Which should all be pushed out by a cold front and turn to snow over night

So now that you know that you know the story...I hope you enjoy my interpretation of darker side of winter and my "Wicked Winter"card.

Of course, she maybe the darker side, but she still has to shimmer and shine. From glitter paper to sparkling H20 on her dress and Shimmerz on her wings. I even blinged out her "magic"!!

I hope you enjoy her as much as I enjoyed discovering her! If you do, my comment link is above the picture...let me know what you think or just that you stopped by!

Yes it's been awhile since I have posted on my blog. I guess you can say life change got in the way. Had to do a lot of readjusting and rearranging of my time and schedule....hopefully I have been able to work this out!

But all has not been lost! Oh No...I have been visiting a lot of my favorites sights, looking and lurking, and trying to be inspired. I have dabbled a little bit, collected a few trinkets, a new "tool" or two to play with....but haven't really had the time or energy to pull it all together, create something wonderful and share it.

I made a promise to myself to allow myself time to be creative. Even if I don't finish a project, I find the time I spend using "the other side of my brain" is very relaxing and refreshing.
Hopefully I will find some inspiring challenges to keep me motivated and creating!

Happy Crafting!
