I love all the snowy day stuff!  In fact, I love all the stuff.  Whether eterne ends up sending or I get crafts from other wonderful crafters, I know I'm in good hands.  You guys rock.

I'm glad you could post pics, because as I think I mentioned, my hubby took our camera cable to work so I can't post any pics right now (and I really want to post pics of my awesome Frances stuff, too!)

One of my very favorite pictures in the book is where Peter is looking in his pocket for the snowball and it's gone (as used on the lid of the box) but I couldn't figure out how to use that picture.  I happened to be in Michael's and saw that yarn, white with iridescent sparkles, and I thought "Oh man, I'm makin' a snowball!!"  Don't you love that kind of inspiration?  Grin  Oh, and btw, I had in mind that the snowflake side of the journal is the back cover, but since it's a blank book, I guess it can go either way!  Wink

Oh, I wasn't criticizing or anything!  I just thought it was funny -- being a blank book, it could go either way until you write in it -- or you could write on both sides!  Grin  One thing I really love about Ezra Jack Keats' art is that it looks like craft, all cut-paper and fabric.  All those lovely pink and blue snowflakes are rubber stamped.  Very cool!  I love his other books, too.

I didn't think you were criticizing! I am really being honest that I was just so excited that I didn't even realize as I took the pics!!

So here is the front or back of the journal (depending on how you look at it) Wink


I love Ezra Jack Keats' art as well. I think that is why I was drawn to it as a small child. The simplicity of the words and pictures make them wonderful!!

I just realized that monfrere didn't post a picture of what I sent her yet so I will!! Her book was the butter battle book by Dr. Seuss. It's about a war between the Zooks & the Yooks over the proper way to eat your bread- butter side up or down.

I sent her a t-shirt done with a multi-layer stencil of some of the cover art, two tea towels embroidered with butter side up & butter side down, a big felt die that she can roll to help her decide how to eat her bread & a VHS copy of the cartoon version of the book.

Here are the pics:
