Morning folks! Are you searching for Spring in your neck of the woods? She's occasionally been spotted here in B.C.
And some days have been (mostly) glorious. I say mostly because, in typical Spring fashion, it can be beautiful sunshine one moment:
Then snowing like crazy the next:
And then 10 minutes later, beautiful blue sky and sunshine again!
I took these photographs when we were out snowshoeing on the first day of Spring and The Delinquent was in her glory digging in the muddy earth for voles.
But today it is snowing yet again and more is forecast for the rest of the week. Fortunately it is quite warm though, so while the snow falls and sticks for a bit, it isn't lasting long. We had about 5 inches the other day but it is mostly gone already. I hear that you folks in the East are having to batten down the hatches again for yet another big storm, stay safe everyone and remember, this too shall pass!
I've been stuffing goats like crazy for the last few days, I haven't sold any of the little devils for ages and all of a sudden had multiple orders for them, so I have quite the herd sitting on the dining room table waiting for finishing touches before they head off to their respective homes. I did get another of my Mixed Media Studio challenges completed in between sewing and stuffing; it is the drawing on book pages challenge.
I chickened out and decided to print an image on an old dictionary page instead of drawing something; my drawing skills are suspect at best so figured this was the safer way to go LOL! Found a book stack image on Pinterest, printed it onto the book page along with the text 'READ' and then colored the books in with some Tim Holtz Distress Markers and decoupaged on a couple of vintage library book check out cards. The dictionary page has the definition for the word 'read' on it. I can see where this could become very addicting and has all kinds of possibilities for incorporating these book pages into your art journals and mixed media pieces.
So I must get back to work now on my wee goats and also work on my altered clock and pop tab challenge as the end of the month is creeping ever closer. Hope that Spring has decided to come and stay wherever you may be and if not, never fear, she will show up eventually?!
