    So I know that some people are tired of the snow, but I was very thankful yesterday for a last minute snowfall. It gave me the chance to try out snow dyeing again. I had tried it a couple of weeks ago, and was not happy with the results, and was hoping to get another chance at it! I had read some of the blogs that were linked here before, and I didn't have time to order dyes from Dharma Trading, so I went to WallyWorld and Meijer and checked out their selection of RIT dyes and used those instead. I know these aren't the greatest pictures, it's still kind of gray and drab here, was hoping for some sunshine so you could see the colors better. :)

    This was with fuschia, royal blue and a little bit of navy

    Looks like it came out pretty good. I had never heard of that until a post on here a few weeks ago. Our snow was gone or dirty by then!

    One more reason to love winter! Fabulous idea! I hope I remember this next winter. No snow here in Kzoo, should have gone to our cottage in Houghton Lake!
