Ice Storm 2009

Ice Storm Day! No school for the kiddos. Amanda is helping Alex peek at all the ice and sleet. Jackson is glued to the Wii for the day. He's trying out the new game we got, Super Mario Galaxy.

How fun!

Well, I guess we won't be going anywhere today.... I'm thankful the power is still on! I'm ready for this to be over, in the meanwhile, I'll be creating new wristlets like this one i my shop.

2 inches of ice by the end of the day expected :(

**updated pics later in the day of the ice storm...

Looks like the trees are snapping and bending over.

Here is a little about the owner of this shop:

", I'm Ruth and I'm going with the saying "Do what you love and love what you do!" I love staying home and caring for my five children. They are very creative and some of the kindest kids you'd ever meet! I also love to sew and anything that involves a needle and thread...quilting, embroidery, needlework.I am thankful to be able to work from home, while still keeping a watchful eye on my little ones. It is a joy for me to cut fabric and then package it up beautifully to send to you. I hope you enjoy my store and come back often!"

Here is her wonderful profile!

Hello! My name is Heather Cheney, I am the owner and primary operator of Sugar Smitten Sweets and Mommy to the sweetest 2 year old girl ever! Sugar Smitten is a small cake decorating business that specializes in creative and unique cakes and desserts. I personally do the majority of the baking and decorating and am occasionally assisted by my husband, for some of the crazier tasks.I've been decorating cakes for the last 5 years and have loved the challenge and reward it is to create cakes that really stand out in a crowd. Check out my bakery website at www.sugarsmitten.comHere on Etsy I want to have some fun. I love decorating cakes, but those get a bit tricky to ship across the world. So I've decided to feature unique and delicious desserts and whimsical gifts. Be assured that all edibles are handmade in a fully licensed commercial kitchen with the utmost care and concern for health and safety. I love what I do and selling on Etsy gives me an opportunity to get my little creations out there and gives me a chance to spend more time at home with my daughter. Enjoy!
