Since we're in the thick of Winter, we thought it'd be appropriate to focus this week on Winter. All week, the Lily Bee Design team will be featuring projects to inspire you to make the most of this unique time of year.
Patricia and I (Ursula) are kicking off the week with a bit of a different spin on Winter. While we live almost across the country from one another, we share a pretty similar climate. That is to say, a warmer one. We are both in the South. I'm in the Southwest and Patricia is in the Southeast but in either case, truly cold temperatures are hard to come by. So what does Winter look like for us???
Patricia says : If we ever get snow here in South Louisiana, the cities shut down and everyone grabs their cameras. So I decided to make my own faux snow and fussy cut the doilies from the Prim pattern paper and splatter some white mist around on the denim Finicky paper. Since our Winters are not the typical Wintery snowy white, but instead still full of color, I pulled in some red and aquas that went well with the photos from our Wintery season.
Lily Bee Supplies used: Persnickety (Prissy Paper, Finicky Paper, Prim Paper, Mixed Stickers, ABC Stickers), Christmas Cheer (Journaling Index Card), Autumn Spice (Cream Paper, Cinnamon Paper, Stamps)
As always, Patricia adds such fun details. I love that she cut out the doilies from the Persnickety Collection!
Here in Southern Arizona, I dream of snow, I pray for snow. Heck, I'd be happy with just cold. However, we only get snow in valley ever other year or so. But this year, we did get a very chilly cold snap. Temps dropped to below freezing five nights in a row and that is certainly cause for breaking out our hats and scarves!

I wanted to soften my background, a pattern from the Persnickety collection, so I overlayed a 12x12 sheet of vellum and sewed it down. And in case you're wondering, Yes, we do take a picture every single time we wear winter gear, it could be years before it happens again and we feel so cute in it!
Initially, I was heading for an all black and white pallette, but my inner color monster came out and a bit of blue and red ended up taking over.
What chilly memories do you have to share about? Make sure you share them in our Flickr gallery! And stay tuned all week for more Wintery inspiration.
