Winter in the Northeast

Well, it is 60 degrees this late February day here in the Northeast.  And we are all enjoying this wonderful, mild winter.  Especially after last year and the 3 feet of snow in one storm days...  The crocus and the daffodils are already peeking out.  Hopefully they will not be damaged by the freeze that is expected this evening along with a bit of slushy mess.  It won't be long now!

More Doodles Unleased

Arty Tea Party Project...Doodles Unleashed workshop with Traci Bautista

It was fun to watch everyone get started.   Some of the ladies had a very hard time stepping outside of their comfort zone and just "LET GO".  Now, I will make a photocopy of it and cut it up to use on other projects.   This was great fun.  Creative Art Play...

Visit the Talented Chics of the Arty Tea Party at

And if you want to see what Janet is doing while she is enjoying the mild, midwest winter, visit her at  She, too, has taken the online workshops with Traci Bautista via Strathmore Artist Studio.

Where's the snow???

This is a picture of a few winters in the northeast, we have had some very strange weather.
At the end of October, we had a freak blizzard that crippled the entire area, downed trees, leading to power outages for a couple of days.  Quite bizarre.
And just last week, the end of January, there were kids out in 55 degree weather in shorts.  Now that it is February, the chill goes down into the 20's at night, but right back up again today in the sunshine to around 40.
So, in order to feel the winter that many here wish we had, I am posting an old photo.  And honestly, I wouldn't mind a nice big snowstorm.  The soup is on, and game day plans are underway...
Nina is at Rosendale Winter Market today with her Two Crows...Hope she is having a fine day!  Her "winter's spell" incense crows are keeping me company today as I sort and organize while waiting for the Super Bowl.
