Thinking Spring!

The ground is still covered in snow but I'm thinking spring.  The days are getting longer and the sun is glowing warmer.  I especially love that I wake up naturally in the morning, to the light.  But this weekend it's time to 'spring ahead' to Daylight Savings Time and I'll need the jangle of the alarm clock to wake me up again.

While winter is a great time for collecting moose poo, the warmer weather means the sap will be running and it's time to gather the woody bast fibres like willow, red osier dogwood and alder barks for my papers.  Each season brings new treasures for my craft and they're free!


  1. This is so awesome! Do the flowers keep their color well?


  2. They do, Chriss. I press them in the microwave and ones I gave my mom several years ago are still bright. I imagine they would fade if exposed to a lot of light, though.

  3. I'm loving this card, Liz-Anna! Like the new color combo on the blog, too. Very soothing.


Thank you for taking the time to leave comments. It means a lot to me.
