Hi Friends! Quick post today – we’ve been dealing with snowstorms, power outages and sketchy internet connections. Another storm is on it’s way on Wednesday, so there’s no signs of Spring around these here parts, anytime soon. There have also been lots of flooding in areas which of course all froze up last night, so areas of Nova Scotia are entombed in ice today. It’s just a mess!

I’m amazed I had internet long enough to get this post done! On that note, I’m off.
Have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!
