gems

Photobucket

I woke up before first light today. I could see the ice blue snow on the ground, but it wasn't until the sun started coming up that the beauty revealed itself.

It is a wet snow and will most likely melt inside of a few hours.

The camera finds a moment to freeze time. The snow sparkles like gems, but the camera cannot capture what my eyes see.

I am reminded of something else I've been wanting to show you.

My sister has been encouraging (enabling) me to get busy with opening my button store on etsy. She has been creating some of her own to sell in the store too. They are beautiful.

There is so much going on here...all of this on top of a button!

and who knew button making could be so much fun? I'm doing my best to get the store up and running ...details...details...

Cyndy, you should print and frame that first picture. It's incredible.

I've knit my button band and will send it to you this week! I allowed myself to get sidetracked on other projects. :o)

I was driving to town when the sun finally came over the mountain...made for treacherous driving as my eyes were on the view and not the road! Had to stop for a turkey crossing! The button is beautiful! Creativity oozes from your family.
