Snow Day! - January 2018

Jeanne here! I am so excited to be kicking off our very first kit of 2018 here at The 12 Kits of Occasions! Most of us have been hit harder than usual this winter - more snow, and longer cold spells. With my 2018 new year's resolutions in mind (try to enjoy the "NOW"!!) I decided to embrace it!Remember childhood days when you wished you could have a day off from school so you could play in the snow? We were lucky to have a hill in front of our house and would fight to get our turn on the sled! I remember coming in the house for Hot Chocolate and listening to "Suzy Snowflake" on the radio and looking out the window for her. Why didn't my snowman, like Frosty, come to life?

Once I started working I'd wish that I didn't have to drive all the way to work for fear of getting stuck or spinning out of control. But it was still magical making the first tire tracks in the snow as I'd leave my house in the morning.

The kit I put together captures all the fun of a snow day .. from downhill sledding, to a quiet walk in the winter woods.

So bundle up.. put on your hat and gloves, and enjoy the magic!

Here's a peek at the kit...


I invited a few special friends to play along!

Cathy Weber - an original member of "The 12 Kit's of Occasions" and the one who invited me to the group years ago has agreed to break her hiatus from paper crafting and join us this time!

Richard Breaks  - I think he's absolutely fearless!  Never afraid to alter and ink while I'm playing it safe!  Richard's been my guest since my very first kit and I am so happy he keeps coming back for more!
And because we know the kit is more fun when YOU can play along too ... our lucky guest drawn from the comments on last month's post...

Here's one of the cards I made with the kit!

Oh my gosh, Jeanne, I can so relate to your childhood as I was raised in cold, crisp and snowy Northern MN. We rarely got snow days even when in the minus 30s plus windchill. We’d walk backwards to keep the wind from our face. Anyway, I love what everyone did with your wintry kit!
