Printing your blog

I've read about this but was wondering if anyone has ever tried that. It sounds like it would be fun to have a hard copy of past works as well as being able to see your work in your hands. Plus, for me, it would be cool to see the progress in terms of the kids and what they've done over the yrs.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has heard of this or done it. I'm looking into the options out there.

On another note, we went walking today for the first time in like 4 months as a family outside. It was really nice, a bit cold but nice. I wore sneakers and it was a lot easier to move without snow boots! :) I just ordered a pair of rain boots for my self as the kids all have their own pairs now. I can hardly wait for the rain...even if it means mud...or maybe esp. because we will have mud! I'm tired of frozen ground and crunchy snow. The rain will be a welcome to this long winter we've had.

I would like to eventually buy snow suits for everyone. I've learned that wearing two pairs of sweats doesn't do the trick and just makes people more cold/unprotected. I didn't realize that snowsuits are really handy and keep kids active in the winter. So, this will be my next purchase for next winter.

We have a play to see tonight...Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat at the Hollidaysburg JHS. Should be a lot of fun! :) We've been waiting for this all week.

I finally got my self into the studio and was working on some new artworks. It seems like I've been away from doing artwork for ages but it's really only been a few days because of my cold/flu. I'm glad to finally get the energy to do things again. Plus, I have an idea about getting natural light in there. I don't know if it will work but it basically involves a funnel type thing with mirros and sticking it on a window. We shall see. We get Southern exposure from the front of our house and I would have to access it somehow from the front windows of the basement. We're talking 1.5 foot windows...very small and close to the ground. So, I don't know...might take some figuring out. Wish me luck. :)

I know the above has nothing to do with art but it's a fun thing I'm working on and want to solve.

Anyway, it's such a gorgeous day. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. :)
