Monday's mentions...

*Monday's mentions* 
 is a Monday ritual to open doors to creative Souls who blog and live the "handmade" pledge...who you may or may not know already... enjoy.

 

Good morning sweet readers...so welcome to our new Monday Ritual...I have always wanted to do something similar, there are many gorgeous Monday Mosaics happening all around us, but I still haven't figured out how to make one...
So *Mondays mentions* will be our little "thing" which you are more than welcome to join in on.

The temperature out today is very close to -25 degrees Celcius...and although SO cold...the light when it's this cold is so clean and bright. We got a dumping of snow on Saturday...the girls are happy...SNOW FORTS!!!
Walking them up to school this morning was a tease as every snow bank lead their imagination to greater creations..."NOPE" not until after school" I told them...arriving to school wet from rolling in the snow wouldn't be a smart move.
You know when it's cold when: the skin of your legs BURN and the hairs in your nose feel brittle...when every step in the snow is a SQUEEKY CRUNCH...love it!!!!

*Monday's mentions*
I would LOVE to make some BLUEBERRY BUTTER today...I have all the ingredients...Nocole has a wonderful Blog...SLEEPY TIME GAL...go check it out...LOTS of crafts and tutorials to keep all of us Mums even busier!!!

I like the freedom of Jasmin's writing and family out in Australia...I feel the hippy in me coming out when I visit her blog Jazzy Two Shoes...her photography is awesome and she's constantly making stuff for her family.

Finally for today's mentions ...I would love to purchase one of Kerry's prints one day...they're fresh...as is her blog the Seventy Tree. She's extremely honest...and to the point in her writing...definitely worth a visit!

SO...join in the fun and leave me links to YOUR Monday mentions in the comments field below...
Have a great Monday.
happy hugs
Char.x

I have so many people that I love that I couldn't possibly wittle it down right now. It would take some mental chewing...and my mental chewer is busy with a crochet pattern this afternoon! LOL I did follow your link to yours though! Thank you! :-)

I'd like 1 day of snow like that, then that's about it. I'm a warm weather girl. :0)

Have fun building the snow forts and making the blueberry butter. Sounds yummy!
