Snowy day at home

It's a SNOW DAY here -- not because we have much snow on the ground, but because it's blizzardy and blowing...and very, very cold.  As in, negative double digits with the wind chill.
I'm happy to be cozy at home with Ben today.  The photo above was from last night's Troop Christmas get together.  I cannot believe how big his Troop has grown.  So many nice kids.
Maybe I will be able to do some crafting today.  I have these ornaments to finish up -- they are all glittered up and just need embellishments!  I have time to do more...the question is, what?  It's a nice problem to have.
I wanted to show you how I hung those fun matchbox ornaments on a stamp stand.  I think they look great!
Here's another glimpse of some holiday decor: the tissue paper tree I made at the first Birdsong event a couple of years ago (Carol Spinski's class), crowned with Lani's crown.
Get a load of this beautiful gift I got at my Colorado Springs Button Club's Christmas luncheon a few days ago!
It's a lavishly decorated button clutch that one of the members, Idell, made!  This is the front (the lace strip is where it opens.)
And this is the back of it.  Oh my goodness, it is fun to hold and run your hands over all those fun, colorful buttons!
