Snow sparkles !

Yesterday, we were hit by our very first snowstorm. I was not expecting one, it is hubby who told me on tuesday evening when he saw me sulking again as i was watching the news. The US was going through another blizzard, a big one. I complained it was not fair, we in Quebec, should be the ones to go through this. We are used to having heavy snowfall...Hum, some of you reading this will " she nuts or what ? " I guess i am, in fact, i know i am. Even hubby reminds me everyday. ^-^ I love summers best, but i live in the north country, where winters are long and harsh. I just can't help it, i love snowstorm. The wind was howling and the snow was drifting all over in big swirls, it was very beautiful. This morning, i went for a walk to the post office. Had some packages to ship. It was sunny and perfect. The air today is crisp and the snow is sparkling. I was in a happy mood. And to make things even better, i had my free copy of Art doll quaterly waiting for me !

Months ago, i was contacted by magazine editor Jana Holstein to let me know i would be featured in their next issue. I was pretty excited and here is the result of the little article about Carlos and Svetlana. I am not sure if the magazine is out yet, as copies sent by mail are always shipped before the magazine hits the stands. I owe this chance of being featured to my wonderful daughter Geneviève who gave me a few painting lessons. i still need to work hard to be as talented as she is. I have emailed Jana to give her my thanks and also to tell her to consider my daughter's work in a future publication of ADQ. She deserves that much recognition. Crossing my fingers.
I must get back to my sewing. Many custom orders await me, the vacuuming, dirty dishes piling up in the sink, bed still not made and the driveway who will need more shoveling before hubby's back from work.
Wishing you all a wonderful day ♥

Wow congratulations on being published in Art Dolls Quarterly, that's so exciting!!
I know just how you feel about the frosty windy days..It's pretty windy here today and the rain has been falling heavily for hours now. I don't know why but I always feel more energetic and creative on days like these!
So off in to the studio...new dolls and bears to make...always inspired when I drop by here, thank you!!
