Inspired

While waiting for spring to sproing, I have been inspired to get a little crafty.  And not in one of my usual ways.  It may be the lack of sleep around here, but one day I woke up and  found myself wanting to make a decorative wreath.  Like I really needed to make a clover wreath right now.  Never had the desire to make a wreath before in my life, but I decided to run with it.  A quick trip through the craft store looking for inspiration yielded some cheery and inexpensive materials.  I think I spent less than $5 for this whole project: felt, a cookie cutter, a wreath form, and some tacky glue.  I already had some fabric, ribbon, and a hot glue gun.  That’s it!

Some random thoughts about Spring:

The days are getting longer, the sun is shining a little bit brighter, and the snow seems to be turning to rain instead.

I think I spied some flower bulbs pushing their way through the soil in my flower beds.

We had a couple of windows open over the weekend, and it was so refreshing to air out the house.

I find myself craving fresh, bright colors.

I want to scrub the dark winter out of the house and welcome in the sun.

It’s still pretty grey out there, but Spring is definitely on her way.  This wreath helps with the waiting.

Looking forward to taking walks with a couple less layers on.

Thinking about using recycled yarn to make a lacy spring/summer scarf.

Trying to finish up my current socks in progress so I can start a new pair in some wildly bright yarn.

Are you ready for Spring?  How do you prepare for a change in seasons?

    We’re coming into autumn here. I’m slowly pulling out the cardigans from storage as I need them, i’m starting to change what I’m cooking and I’m eyeing my red wine collection with renewed interest!
