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?
