Thoughts for Thursday

I realize this blog is quickly morphing into a blog about winter weather, but trust me when I say that this February/March snow is so out of the ordinary for us down here in Texas. There is little talk of anything else in my world right now. 

I’m stuck at home (again) with what the local news says is 6ish inches of snow outside!  And it is March… Where oh where is the spring weather?   Not to mention that snow days are not really all that fun when you have a job and things that need to get done!  In an attempt to distract myself from worrying about all the things I can’t do while not at my office, I’m blogging and linking up with Annie today for Thoughts for Thursday. 

Dallas Snow

Last week while at home due to winter weather, I spent a little time crafting, so I thought I’d share some of my crafting essentials today.  Lately, these are my top picks for making fun cards. 

Craft Desk2  Le Pens//assorted colorful cards + envelopes//paper cutter, tiny Martha scissors, Martha bone folder

Le Pens have a cult following and plenty of colors to match any project.  My favorite source for solid cards and envelopes (and tons of other fun supplies!) is Paper Source.  Paper Source also carries Le Pens :) 

I use my handy little paper cutter all the time.  It is a huge time-saver!  And how would any craft desk be complete without a little bit of the craft goddess herself, Ms. Stewart.  Her scissors and bone folder from Michael’s are game changers.  Lining envelopes is a breeze with that pretty aqua folder!

And, possibly the best and quickest way to jazz up just about anything – washi tape.  These are my current favorites.  All very appropriate for springtime, if it ever comes.

What are some of your craft favorites?  Is everyone as sick of winter as I am?  I’m sorry to my northern friends who must laugh at us southern wimps in this ice/snow!  I can barely cut it in Dallas – can’t imagine anywhere where snow is actually a regular thing.

  2. I feel like my blog is turning into the same thing! The weather this year has just been nuts! Bring on spring, asap! Your backyard at least looks gorgeous in the snow! When I’m stuck at home I love crafting too!

  3. I have heard so many good things about Le Pens... I really need to get some for myself. I also love washi tape, sharpies, fun notepads and I used a lot of glittery gold on my St. Patrick's Day decorations. Wish we could have gotten a tiny bit of your snow in Mississippi!!

  4. Just catching up on your blog... Le Pens are my favorite! I've become such a snob- I don't really like to write with anything else now, so I've started ordering them in bulk on Amazon, ha!
