ALL THE THINGS

Pretty Spring Things

I don’t care if the Groundhog saw his shadow, Spring has already been making its way to Texas.*  We’ve been getting weather in the 80s (yes, the 80s).  We’ve been having more sunny days than dreary ones, and it’s been getting darker just a little bit later every day.  During the past several weeks, I’ve been making some beautiful crafty spring-inspired purchases.  A lot of it is probably attributable to what Fiancé and I call “all the things mode,” based off the wonderful Hyperbole and a Half comic.   But I like acquiring pretty things to get me in the mood for spring.

Stitch Lab had a closing sale (sob), and I was able to buy some pretty fabrics using the gift certificate Fiancé had gotten me for my birthday last year.

I bought a book called Hoop-La! at Stitch Lab, along with the newest issues of Flow and Womankind.

I bought some pretty watercolors and watercolor crayons.

And some pretty paper.

I can’t wait to create something using these pretty tools.  How are you getting inspired by spring?

*That sentence originally read “I don’t care what the Groundhog said.”  You can tell I am writing this while drinking my morning coffee.
