Hibernating

Ok, so we got an ungodly amount of snow the past 24 hours! It took me over an hour this morning to dig my car out and a path out of the driveway, but I don’t intend to use it anytime soon! I just want to do the bear thing and curl up in my nice, warm house until spring! And hey, I have enough crafting supplies to last me that long…and if not, that’s what UPS/FedEx are for! Anyways, I actually did a non-Christmas project today! Not that I don’t still have Christmas projects hanging about unfinished, but I think I’m done subjecting you to them, lol! So here’s a little wall hanging with hooks I intend to use for my keys and purse. It’s from Walnut Hollow and I used paper from Daisy D’s. I really loved this piece of paper and hated to cover it with anything (plus, I would feel dorky putting “keys” or something on this…like I’d forget?). So, instead I decided to play with the design of the paper itself and completely work just with that. However (and the picture totally does not show this well – click on it to get the bigger version and it’s a little easier to see the details), everything that is not white on this paper got some kind of treatment. I pulled out Glossy Accents and Crackle Accents from Ranger and Scribbles from Duncan and just kept painting it all on! There are also clear gems (from Tulip/Duncan) over all the circles. I love that I was able to keep the gorgeous paper intact, yet add my own touch of texture to it! Now to hunt down a level so I can hang it up!

Also, don’t forget to scroll down and leave a comment on my post from the other day to get in the running for an RAK (which I just now remembered I still haven’t photographed, lol, now that it’s getting dark!).
