“Catching Snowflakes”

Catching snowflakes was easy peasy this weekend as they fell practically the whole weekend long.  I think we got about 4 inches on Saturday night with another 8 inches or so on Sunday!  It’s a white winter wonderland out there, and I am VERY happy to be warm and cozy inside my house.

I finished up Lucy’s new ensemble yesterday, then we had our photo shoot.  I definitely wanted to use the snowy landscape as a back drop.  I brought out my studio light for front lighting.  It was perfect . . . and quick—my favorite kind of photo shoot.

Lucy’s eyelet capelet has 7 panels which are perfect for embellishing.  I’ve embroidered different snowflake compositions on each panel using mohair/silk yarn for snowflakes, white pearlized seed beads for tiny flakes, and clear seed beads for ice crystals.

Lucy’s vintage-styled headband earwarmer uses two strands of lace yarn to give it more thickness.  Each side is embellished with an aqua blue snowflake and matching seed beads.

The little muff hand warmer is the perfect size for Lucy’s hands, and is also embellished with an aqua snowflake.  The bracelet is incorporated into the muff as a handle.  You can see Lucy’s prized snowflake memento charm.  She will always remember this magical pre Christmas snowfall.

    Love the muff, cape, hat, dress, well everything in this one. Lucy is adorable, and I think she is about to start singing a holiday tune. Such a sweet thing.
    How’s the snow? Digging out? We’re actually having some sun today, but tomorrow back to much needed rain.
    Let’s see. Need to get out a few holiday cards or it will be happy new year, and still need to wrap the gifts for the grands. Must figure out how to wrap a mini trampoline.
