Button Blossoms




Last bag for this not-so-springlike week.
So, to create some of our own enjoyable outdoors, allow me to present: Button Blossoms.

The bag measures 10 x 11 inches.


No school again today. Underneath the mounds of snow is a sheet of sheer ice.
Yesterday, I saved the remnants of my scattering sanity by walking to the gas station for brownie ice cream and a movie for the kids. (ice cream=me. movie=children.) We get numbed by our own vices. Yummy. (and yes, I did share the ice cream. picky, picky.)
$35.00 starts us off today. Next week is "spring break" so I'll likely be outside planting daffodils in the snow dunes, and may need to take a few extra days off to commit myself to a psychiatric institution. One of those fancy ones where the grass is always green and the sun comes out for more than just a tease...

ps this bag is one of my favorites. hmm. just a thought - have you ever thought about making a bag with CHALK BOARD paint on the flap??? :) maybe i've been locked indoors too long......

Great bag Joyce, I support the chalk board paint flap idea!!! I think you should go for it, just go for it!!


Hey I wanted to ask if you are in the flood zone, that's melted snow water not melted ice cream?

chiromomma said...

And we are sort of on the edge of the flood zone. In 97 this town built a dike to keep the water back, but we are only three miles east of the red river, so it affects a lot of people right around here. This year we are seeing alot of in town flooding, as our ground is saturated, the culverts are frozen, and there is no where for the water to go.

Ourselves, personally? I think we are fine.

chiromomma said...

Yeah!!!!! Now what do I do?

now you send me an e-mail with your mailing address and I tell you that to ship to Wpg is $10.
