SOS#237 - Dreaming of Something Warm

Hello everyone - Alica here with a fresh new challenge.

It's February and if you live in the Northern Hemisphere like me, by this time of the year you are probably fed up with cold weather and starting to think about something warm - warm beaches, hot cup of tea or coffee, warm beds or baths and maybe even warm hugs :) So this is our challenge for this week - dream about something warm, make a project and let us know what it is.
We are excited to see what you create!  
Hugz!

Here's  Some Inspiration from our DT!
Lauren
dreaming of warm beach, which somehow failed to materialize, so I painted one!

Barbara
I like a "hot" bubble bath when I'm cold.
Jessi
With Valentine's Day approaching, I'm thinking about warm hugs :)

Alica
how about some nice hot tea?

Chris

Donna
I'm dreaming of a Bahamian beach...but I will make due with a chai latte :)

SOS Challenge #236 - Inspired By A Book!

Hello, Crafty Peeps,
This is Chana and it is my week to host.

Well, we like to keep things interesting here at Shopping Our Stash, and our theme for this challenge fills the bill quite well!  We want you to create a project that is Inspired By A Book!   It could be the title of the book, it could be a character from the book, whatever your stash will support.
You could even use a quote from a book, something like:
 "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a.....!"

We are excited to see what you create!  
Hugz!
