Your story from church really hit home with me. People think I'm crazy because I love a snowstorm, the more the better, and it's exactly for the reasons this story tells. Thanks for sharing. I love the stocking you made especially the snowflake cluster.

Thanks for sharing the snowstorm story Melissa (and the stocking too!!). I live in the west part of Michigan where we are no strangers to snowstorms, and I too love it when that old wind is howling and the storm rages on, but my family and I are all snuggled in, safe and warm! It's going to be 90 here today, so this was a great reminder of what's around the corner and wonderful memories of when our girls were younger and "snowdays"! :0)


love Christmas in July :)

Love your sweet stocking. I am just starting to think of Christmas gift/card ideas, so this was fun to see today. Beautiful story. I think we all have that desire to lock our families up tight & hide out from the world. But, then we need to break out & experience the wonders of the outside world, which makes our home lives that much better. Hugs for a happy day!

Quite Beautifully put Melissa! :) Our homes need to be "the safe place" for our children to fall, no matter what age, I believe! THAT is being "family!" So sad, that many others don't believe this or live this way! I have to say Melissa, Your Christmas Stocking is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went over to the Sizzix blog to look....(no where to comment! :() But, here I am to tell you, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the Vintage feel you've given this! It's QUITE GORGEOUS!!!!!!!:D

Congratulations Christal! I forgot! LOL I was so taken with this sweet little stocking! (You all HAVE TO watch the little video over at the Sizzix blog! You get a good idea of how little this sweet stocking is! ) :D


Fantastic stocking! Beautifully done. LOVE the papers and stitching and layers of goodness. My first glimpse of Tinsel & Co (N.Y.) was on Tim Holtz's blog. It was amazing. Wonderful stuff! :)
