How cool is it  A) to work in a school system (Im a teacher assistant specializing in art for special needs kids in one of the most art-heavy schools in the country) and B) to have a snow day to play in my studio!!! Thanks Mom Nature!!

My sis Molly (shes an abstract expressionist painter and you can her gorgeous stuff on my site) and I had a creative day together as we watched the snow and ice pile up in upstate NY.  So among other things, we used scrap matboard and scrabble letters to make these cool lil magnets. I want to put some keys and buttons on too. How fun. Couldnt wait to show ya. Check out the "smile" on the Junk Girl magnets.

Sue are you digging out over there in MN? How did everyone else fare with the latest deluge? (Well except you southerners!!) LOL! :)

We're pretty good here with the snow emergency equipment but I guess Minnestoans are a tougher breed than us New Yorkers. I am so sick of snow and ice but it gives me studio time!

I should of been born in Florida, as I'm a warm weather person & only live with it (the snow). As a kid I remember my Dad packing all 7 of us kids in the station wagon to go places and we'd fly through 3-4' drifts with the car. Call all of us Minnesotans "foolhardy" and that about it sums it up. No play days for us, unless we get a Halloween blizzard again. That was maybe 1991 and we had 20+" in record time, that did slow us down for a day. Crazy!

You just inspired me to get out my old Scrablle game again. Posted: 9:54 am on January 29th
MimiToria writes: Looks like you had some fun with the scrabble tiles! Lucky you to get a snow day. In Minnesota the metro area doesn't get snow days. In 10 years of school my daughter has had 1 snow day and it was for a furnace that went out. We are expected to be crazy and die hards, so they just don't cancel. Outlying areas they do cancel, usually for drifting and such.
As to the snow deluge, I can happily report that we rec'd less than 1/4" here last night in Minnesota. We shoved it all to the East this time and we just got the cold front -20 last week, and no snow. We actually probably only have 11" on the ground in the Minneapolis area.
