FF-SnowDay

This week saw snow along the Eastern seaboard in the US and this weekend, the weather reports are threatening snow and ice throughout the Midwest and South and Southeast in the US so I was inspired to plan a Snow Day theme for this week’s Fashionable “Weekend”. I picked warm tones inspired by fresh chocolate muffins, hot out of the oven and icy tones reminiscent of the snow and ice outside our frosty windows. I hope everyone is warm and toasty indoors with their favorite inks and pens and projects to work on. Maybe you’re knitting up a new hat to keep you warm if you have to shovel the drive or wait at the bus stop? Or maybe you’re finally getting a chance to work on that craft project, story, photo album, or painting you’ve not had time to tackle in the past? Happy cozying with some of these lovely inspirational pieces from some of my favorite sponsors, friends and shops.
