Well we were supposed to have something like 100 feet of snow last week. I can’t help feeling slighted. I didn’t WANT that much snow. But I just don’t like when people (the media, meteorologists, every one on facebook) are swearing up and down terrifying us all that I must run to the store and buy all the milk, bread and eggs I can find before the movie The Day After Tomorrow happens in real life. And now everyone’s standing around with their hands in their pockets, heads down, kicking at pebbles saying “uh…I don’t recall saying that”.
I know people farther up north still got hit with the snow pretty hard and I’m thankful we didn’t in Delaware, but it drives me bonkers when news reporters say with 100% certainty that something monumental or devastating with the weather is going to happen and then it doesn’t. Haven’t they read The Boy Who Cried Wolf? Have they learned nothing?? A lot of people are now saying “Better over prepared than under prepared”. I can agree with that. I do have a nice stock load of White Russian and Espresso-tini ingredients now.
Aside from the impending snow-doom, I’ve been busily chipping away at some new figurine designs. Here’s a few things I’m working on! Most of these gals are going to This N That Gift Gallery in Carrboro, NC, so sadly they won’t be available in my shop. But if you’re in the Triangle area, be sure to stop by!
I was waiting on these adorable little flowers that I ordered to arrive. They’re soooo cute and tiny! They’ll be used for bouquets and maybe little head pieces for the bride figurines of my cake toppers. I’m also going to offer little painted bases for them to stand on with customizable writing.
