NYC Thunderstorm pics from my fire escape December 26th 2010

A view from my fire escape. December winter storm, blizzard, thunderstorm whatever you want to call it. Cars are out of commission all along fourth ave in the Park Slope/Gowanus Brooklyn area. Some folks appear to have left their cars. These pics were taken at 3:00am (EST)

Sorry for the blurryness but I didnt want to use my flash and kept as steady of a hand as I could.

Fire Dept out and about helping folks out. These 3 cars managed to move- only one got stuck at the next intersection.

(Pic above) looking West on Fourth Ave (after 6th Street) cars lined up as far as I can see. Some appear stalled. A few make it past the bus on the bottom of pic (which is also stuck)

"Size Me Up" Pink Bracelet

I used three different sized pink beads for this bracelet. I also used some clear beads with silver insides to complete the look. It's made with stretch cord.

Turquoise Bracelet

Simple Turquoise Bracelet. This one was made with stretch cord- so it has a "Fits Most" fit. I am actually part of the few that this did not fit- lol. I gave it to my sis, it was the perfect size for her.

DIY Glitter Wall Heart Hook

So as I mentioned in my last post, as time goes by I make more and more items for my craft room. This time I Fabutized a heart hook. This unfinished wood piece was found at the wooden section of Michaels (and will prob be at your local craft store too!) I think it was $1. I painted the whole thing- minues the hook itself an aqua color. (I think its called Island Blue, If you want the exact manufacturer info comment or message me) I then used modpodge to adhere the glitter! I also covered the hook itself with glitter. Dont forget to seal it with Mod Podge (a few times) so when it is put to use the glitter does not rub off!)

This also makes a GREAT Last minute holiday gift.
