Snowed In (and loving it) !

The 30 plus inch snow storm the weather station had been broadcasting for days has arrived! I couldn't be more thrilled. This weekend I am at my house with my future hubby and we are eating great food and making great art.

Since future hubby is a printmaker it was only a matter of time before I had to give the medium a try. His focus is screen printing but I prefer linoleum block printing. Here is my first attempt at linoleum block printing.

I am so excited to begin making paper to print these images onto. With this lino block I plan to make blank cards from handmade paper and cards to be included with sales of my fiber work.

As a complete side note: I am not normally a fan of Green Day these days but this performance at the Grammys gave me chills and almost moved me to tears. I think this performance really put the song in its best light and was able to convey the purpose of the song so much better than any other version.


  1. oh, i'm so jealous of all that snow!
    and thanks for posting a link to that green day grammy performance. wow, what a great rendition; makes me like the song even more.

  2. We are getting even more snow this Wednesday (12 inches or more)!
