This has been a very mild winter .... so far! Today it was dreary and cold all day - a good day to stay inside and be creative! Around 5 pm there were reports from friends and family in Mooresville that it was snowing. It's funny how excited people will get over a few flakes of white stuff! I went outside and saw a tiny bit of snow - mostly it was sleet and rain. But, as the South tends to get excited and nervous about snow, schools in our county have already announced a delay in the morning!! I really can't believe it but I'm sure the school kids are excited to be able to sleep in a bit.
I spent the afternoon doing a little rearranging of my stamps. I have always kept them in alphabetical order but I decided today to mix them up. I arranged them on my shelves by categories. I have my retired stamps separate from the current ones. I sorted them into Sentiments, Floral, Holidays, Occasions, Animals, Backgrounds, Kids, Vintage, Love, Nautical and Love. I don't have as many current stamps so their categories are: Mini Catty, Sentiments, Nature, Floral, Elements, and Occasions. We'll see how this works out. Now I need to work on my stamp catalog. I try to stamp each set when I get it and put it into a notebook. I have been a slacker with this project for about 6 months so I need to get caught up. Right now, my notebook is in alpha order but I think I may change it also. I also keep a notebook of sentiments by category but it is very much out of date. Another project for another rainy day.
Last Wednesday I went to the Reynalda House in Winston Salem (I blogged about this earlier this week). I took a few pictures of the orchids in the greenhouse. They were beautiful. Enjoy!

|This is a huge Rabbits Foot Fern. I have one of these but not nearly so big. The roots came out of the pot and were all over the table that it is sitting on!|
