You don't realize how useful a pinky finger is until you injure it (no idea how, when, or where), and it feels like it is going to fall off. My broken glass slice on a knuckle three days ago hurts less! #hurtssobad #ouchies #pinky #papercut #accidentprone #neosporinandbandaid #wildernessfirstresponder #igotthis via Instagram http://ift.tt/2iJroQL

Made this three-layer #double #shaker #christmas #card for my sister, @craftytacogeek, using the @lawnfawn #readysetsnow #stamps and dies, some #lawnfawn #perfectlyplaid #winter paper, four layers of #funfoam (2 per panel), some #winkofstella, and #zigcleancolorrealbrush markers on #bristol paper. Large pic is of all layers with lighting so the see-through effect is more visible. The left small pic is the front of the card when closed. It opens to the left like a normal card to show the second snow globe (middle small pic). The second layer opens to the right to reveal the back layer which is a solid, non-shaker scene (right small pic). This card was very thick with all of the fun foam, so I had to use a bubble mailer and pay $$ to get it to her. #shesworthit #myowndesign #inspiredby @starofmay @jennifermcguireink @laurafadora @charimoss #handmade #withlove #crafts #cardmaking #snowmen #santa #trees #letitsnow #merrychristmas via Instagram http://ift.tt/2iybnwT

Week 50 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. I got to be a real adult and host a family gathering! Just a few relatives braved a fall snow to visit. (It's not even #winter, #Oregon! #getittogether!) My sister flew in to stay with us for the whole weekend to visit too! #adulting #overrated #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #handwriting #housewifelife via Instagram http://ift.tt/2he56WU

Apparently this is how young Oregonians make snowmen: a grass-hungry slush zombie! #snowman #snow #oregon #midvalley #schoolsout #slush #zombie #grass #nomnom via Instagram http://ift.tt/2hzyaeL
