Brrrrrr someone turn the heat up !!!!!

If my typing goes wonky it's coz my fingers are frozen and im shivering....brrrrrr...teeth chattering....
It's been so cold here yesterday and today, i have hardly left the house. Im officially a hermit. A frozen hermit.
Sam however, has found a way to keep cosy and warm in the afternoon when it gets EVEN COLDER ...yes...even colder !

He pops a dvd on, turns mummy and daddys electric blankets on and hops on into their bed in the warmth (usually with at least 2 pussy cats in tow)!
Not so silly are they?
(sorry the pics are blurry..the little rat kept moving.)

Me.....well i still suffer for my art...Ok everybody say AWWWWWWWW.... LOL.
Yep im still sittin up late in the cold family room painting and creating away.
Im so cold ....but i just cant help it !

Ive even managed to list them all on Ebay now, even with my frozen fingers! :)
i think the temperature has dropped even more while ive been typing!

Tomorrow Sam starts his new Preschool and if its still snowing up the mountains we are going to drive up there when i pick him up from preschool...oh boy oh boy am i crazy??!!!!!!!! What am i thinking????!!!!!!!

Ok im off now to make a mug of hot chocolate and i think i'll get under the covers with Sam and the cats!

Love and Blue Kisses today coz my lips are frozen !

Hi Shannon, the new goodies look great. I know what you mean about it being so cold - it was 7 degrees here over the weekend. Good luck to Sam for tomorrow too. Kathryn.

Hi Shannon, your new creations are wonderful, the cold must have given you that extra bit of creative cupcakeness! New word, don't you love it, the cold is having the opposite effect on me, no creations happening here my brain is frozen. Hope your evening is a little cozier snuggled with your honeys! Kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.

Connie said...

ShannnOOooNNN, please tell me you ship to U.S.!! I would truly want to get something of yours, love painted pink chick!!! They're gorgeous! AND tell us just how cold it truly is. I'm in Idaho where it can get below 0 degrees F., honey, so I know COLD when I feel it!

It was around 100 degrees here just a couple of days ago, so we are having the opposite! I could have used a bit of that chill; it was SO hot!! So I stayed INSIDE to keep cool in the A/C!!
Little Sam looks so snuggly; makes me miss my guys' little boy days.... But they are fun now too!

Jannet said...

First of all I LOVE your paintings, gosh you are so talented sweetie!!
We have around 90'F here, and waaayyy toooo hot for me....
Hope Sam will have fun at his first day in Preschool!! and ya'll will have some snow fun in the mountains!!

Kerryanne English said...

Love all your new creations Shann.
Boy those polka dots must be contagious...I've just used them in my Christmas Collection too. Perhaps it has more to do with the 'tried and true' theory or the 'everything old is new again' one - whatever, they work!!
Stay warm.

Beautiful creations, sweet lady! Wish I could send you some of this Georgia heat and humidity. But, I am sure that it is much for fun to snuggle with cute Sam and the kittys!

Candy said...

Dear Shannon,
Everything you create is awesome!

I would love to trade the weather here for your weather. I hate summer heat and can hardly wait for fall and winter to hurry up and get here (our winter is COLD but I like it because Im part eskimo :) :)

For the Love of Cottage said...

Hi Shann,
It's hard to imagine how cold it is there because it is so hot and humid here in Ohio. When it's cold, though don't you just love to nest, i.e. bake, cook great meals, paint, just be in and cozy. Ooh I miss that. Sam looks very cozy.


Gypsy Mermaid said...

AWWW! haha just had to say it! I freaken love that cupcake sign!!!!!!!!! Its so cute! I wish my taste for the shabby chic stuff was as much as yours! you know me I love me some retro shabby chic stuf! haha Your making me jealous about being cold! gosh I would give anything to wear a sweat shirt and socks with out sweating to death! lol anywho off I go to finish that swap I am struggling with UUUGGGHHHH!!! big hugs


Tracie~MPMaison said...

Hi Shann,
It's hard to imagine it so cold right now - it actually sounds kind of good - but I have to remind myself how it feels, layers and layers of clothes. Here you go ~ some warm California sunshine just for you and for Sam (even though he seems to have the right idea with the kitties too!). Now, have a cup of chocolate for me too, please - Yum!
Have fun in the snow - don't freeze sweetie. Cold or not, you still have the warmest attitude around ;)

KARA said...

isn't it funny how opposite you are in aus to us, usually the UK never gets above 10 degrees but this past week has been unbearable no air con here either I am dying with sweat.
Good luck to little Sam.
Oh I am loving the cupcake sign insert sad face as I have no pocket money
