Yes, it is true - the Pacific Northwest comes to a stand still when it snows,  The safest place to be is home when it snows more than a couple of inches. This is the view this morning looking out to the north.  My Christmas tree, un-decorasted, is coated in real flocking. 

It snowed all day today for an accumulation of about 3 and 3/4 inches of snow on my deck railing.

No, that is not the moon.  It is a snowflake!  And yes, that is my sewing 6" measurer.

Make a House

January Doll Club Challenge:    Make a house
Inspired by Art Doll Quarterly House Challenge, our January Doll Club challenge is to make a house, any house, out of anything.  I have at least 9 family and friend birthdays in January so in my birthday card shopping I came across a card with a felt fairy house.  So Cute!  That inspired my house. 

As I contructed my house in what seemed like the way to do it, I found many things I would differently - but I'm not telling you my mistakes!
And I'm more inclined to make dolls than houses so I probably won't do another one to test out my alternate ideas - but who knows.
