I was just going to head into my studio to get some work done and all of a sudden I realized that tomorrow is March 1 and I hadn't posted the new blog train yet! Geez!! I guess I'm not as proficient at multitasking as I used to be! Lately, every time I think I'm getting ahead, I find myself running to catch up. I definitely have too many irons in the fire at the moment, but it's mostly of my own doing. I decided to take Spanish lessons AND piano lessons on top of everything else I'm doing. I figured that if I don't do them now, when am I going to, right?

During our last big snowstorm, I started my annual flower shopping at BluestonePerennials.com. I gave most of my plants by the berry patch to my daughter last year knowing they would all look better in her garden. So I have 3 box garden beds to fill this year. My husband is sure I did that on purpose so that I could try out all the new varieties of plants that I've been looking at. "Uh-huh...so what's your point?" I said. He's a smart man. He left me alone while I was adding things to my wishlist.
With everything white and cold outside, the greens and browns in this palette just warmed my heart. Kind of like buying garden flowers in the middle of winter :) I love doodle flowers, too. They can be colored any color that fits my kit theme and are the perfect touches to digital scrapbooking pages. The graffiti shown in this kit are actually in the Fan Freebie kit below, so be sure to download both.

I hope everyone survived the "Big Chill" that swept over the country. If I could have just bunkered down in the house for three days, I wouldn't have cared so much. But, as it is, I had to be out in it every day to feed my horses and to make sure they were out of the wind and doing ok. It was brutal, but we survived. If you live in a warmer climate, squeeze an ice cube as hard as you can for 5 minutes. That's pretty much what it feels like, even with winter gloves on. One week later, we're at 50 degrees today and most of the snow has melted. If only this were the end of winter instead of just the beginning.
These days, the only babies we have in our family have 4 legs and a tail, but these colors just screamed "BABY" to me. So, here ya go. . .

Another year of the Digital Scrapbook Blog Train is coming to an end. When I originally worked on this back in October, I was kicking around the idea of maybe having a more elegant Christmas this year. But, living on a horse ranch and having 50 years of country-style ornaments that I dearly love, well....the house will once again be decorated in the country style that so very much suits my character. I'm blue jeans and boots all the way. Instead of a wreath, however, I found a pony head fashioned out of pine boughs and decorated with a ribbon halter, ivy and holly berries. It's just adorable and will be perfect on my wall covered with pictures and paintings of all of my horses. Nonetheless, my photos this year will be scrapped with this more elegant look. Best of both worlds!
