It was a very tumultuous night here in Nova Scotia. I don’t think I heard wind like that in all the years that I had been living here. At least it was warm though, as we heard that nearly everyone located west of us was once again experiencing snow. I fully expected to wake up to more snow on the ground, but it is still very warm and raining.
The wind gusts were fierce. They awoke me several times, as the house was actually shaking. At about 3:30 in the morning, we heard our recycle bin blowing from the front of the house to the rear, and Keith gallantly went outside with a flashlight to retrieve it, finding it right on the brink of the woods behind us.
Needless to say, I didn’t get much rest. I awoke while it was still dark and knew that I wouldn’t be able to fall back asleep. But with my second cup of coffee almost finished, I almost feel human now. Thank goodness for caffeine.
Today we are completing the latest site update at Sheila Landry Designs. Besides my two new patterns, Keith also has three new napkin holders for our customers to cut. I think they came out pretty nice:
What is nice about his napkin holder designs is that they each include a mini-plaque pattern so you can make a matching trivet or make a nice little set. He also has a special where you can purchase any three napkin holders of your choice.
They are all pretty cool, I think.
My contribution this time around are the “Paris” plaque, as well as the Decoupage Bunny Silhouettes:
Not only will these little bunnies be fun for Easter, but I can think of so many applications to crafts and projects all through the summer months. They are so pretty and fun!
I will be writing our newsletter today and sending it out this afternoon. If you subscribe already, be sure to watch for it. If you don’t and wish to join our mailing list, you can do so at this page on our site:
Our list of subscribers continues to grow (thank you!) and we truly appreciate it.
I hope we can avoid having another falling of snow. Even though I love the winter, I have had my fill of it for this year. I also enjoy the nicer weather and I hope that eventually we will have some warmer and sunny days. I can’t wait for my first trip to the beach.
Whatever the day brings, I know I will have a good one. I am anxious to finish up the newsletter and then get started on my next designs. There are so many fun things that I want to do!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
