Jean Says Happy SNOW Day to YOU

We hope everyone in snow country is safe.



The year I was born ( hundred years ago) the snow was so deep that when they opened the door, they could not get out of the house!  

People walked or took a bus more than drove everywhere, it was still a city centered culture (except the brave country folks).   As we all moved to the suburbs we had to have cars to go most anywhere.  Fast forward to traffic jams!



To celebrate Winter, I had the honor of being Suzy Snowflake in my 2nd grade school production.  We embraced winter as a fun time to get outside and make snow angels, sled, and skate.   It was a magical time for imagination.  A cardboard crown, an aluminum foil scepter and missing teeth made for quite the Snow Fairy! Sometimes I wish I could be 7 again, but with teeth!!  

Here's to snow days and icicles that look like glistening sabers, secret snow forts, and hot chocolate.  How about those mittens with a string in your sleeves to keep them together?

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Get on Over!
