I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to participate in this fabulous end of the year blog hop/link party I was invited to.

In case you didn’t know, Michigan suffered a terrible ice storm last week.

400,000 of us Michiganian’s were without power.

We went 5 days through our favorite day of the year…Christmas.

I’m happy to say our toes have defrosted, and my house hold is back to normal.

These 10 projects are just the tip of my iceberg baby!
