Happy Valentine’s day to you all! This is about the time of year when I’m thoroughly weary of winter and long for the Spring. I start dreaming of my flower gardens and vegetable garden (even though I’m not really that great at either of them). I think about the birds that will be coming soon and add birdseed to my shopping list. I start thinking of the fun Spring holidays, like St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, May Day and Mother’s Day – and planning little crafts and projects around them. I love Valentine’s Day for itself, but also because it marks the beginning of the end of the wet and freezing cold. The anticipation for what is to come is so much of the fun, isn’t it?
This might just be the most productive time of the year as well! In a few short weeks it’s going to feel like torture to be in the house working at the computer or in the studio. This is a great time to get ahead on projects in the house and the craft room. It’s the perfect time to get a head start on Christmas projects – especially if you participate in the autumn craft fairs. Whatever it is you’re doing to pass the last few weeks of winter – I wish you days filled with creative ideas and energy to accomplish them!
