Holy Snow Storm!






Yes...it snowed.

It finally stopped snowing...I think we've got about a foot out there right now.
Oh wait...I just turned around and it's STILL snowing. I swear I have never seen so much in my life.

Chloe is not a fan of the snow. We tried to take her outside, but she just kept going to the door.

I'm still not 100% sure I am going to the Detroit Sounds and Spirits tonight. Our driveway has about a foot of snow on it, and the only way we could get out is if a snow plow came through. Also, judging by the two cars stuck out in the street, the roads are not good.

So yeah, that pretty much sucks.

Anyway, Michael checked out this really great book for me at the library yesterday. It's called Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design. I LOVE this book. I think everyone and their mom has already read this book, and I am the last one.

It's a compilation of interviews from crafters and artists from all over the country. I think one of the coolest things about the book is all of the artists that are interviewed are all motivated, entrepreneurial women. It is so inspiring to see these women make a living doing what it is that they love to do.

I plan on reading this entire book cover to cover this weekend.
Oh!! and it looks like they are going to be making a documentary on this too!!

Alright, that's all I got.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend! Christmas is only 6 days away!

hey michele,
snow day here too! i have been eagerly anticipating the release of the movie "handmade nation" but hadn't heard about the book...looks like a trip to the library tomorrow if the roads clear up...

Michele Maule said...

Yes!!
I think the book is going to be really similar to the movie.

I am really excited about it.

Wow that is a lot of snow!!! poor little Chloe she looks as if she really wants to go inside...

The book and movie sounds really amazing, I am not sure if we will have it here in New Zealand but I am going into town tomorrow to see.

I hope you stay warm and are able to get to the Detroit Sounds and Spirits...
