Spring Fever!

Crocus from last year's Spring

Pussy Willows in my back yard

After months of being stuck indoors due to copious amounts of snow, and of course the bitter cold, I am so ready for Spring! So in celebration of the turning of the season, (today is the first day of Spring!) I am posting some Spring crafts from the archives. I promise to start posting new projects ASAP. I am still recovering from my two and a half month sinus infection nightmare, and getting back into the swing of things is taking a while longer than I expected. Happy Spring everyone!

For those who are already planning their gardens, my favorite project to date, and one that I won an award with :) Mosaic Mushrooms for the garden.

And Easter is coming up, so here's a great Easter project!

An Angry Pincushion Success Story

Several months ago I posted about starting a new project, turning my Grandpa's old bowling ball into yard art. A while later I received a very nice e-mail from a great gal named Marisa. She had been reading my blog, liked my idea, and had an old bowling ball that was her Grandfather's too! She wanted to know how to finish the project. I told her after giving her instructions on how to finish grouting etc., that if she sent me a picture when she was finished I'd post it on here. You did a fantastic job Marisa, it will look lovely in the garden no doubt!
