February 1st's Gift
We have been so fortunate the last few days to have temperatures in the 40's (and going into the 50's the next two days) to melt away those tremendous piles of snow we've had!
Being it is now February my thoughts are definitely on Valentine's Day- my favorite holiday along with Thanksgiving, and getting closer to spring. To my absolute delight and surprise I was greeted by a large group of birds like this one taken in my back yard this afternoon:
When the robins appear they are a sure sign that spring is not far away! And I will choose to take this sign any day over what any groundhog may reveal tomorrow (Groundhog Day) as to whether we have 6 more weeks of winter if he sees his shadow, or if he doesn't and we have an early spring. I watched the robins digging up their worms in my yard and singing and it truly made my heart do a happy dance!!
There is a new theme over at Art Journal Journey . I was hoping to have a completed journal page to enter but alas that didn't happen. Here is the WIP:
Napkins and some gelatos...and then my muse just up and left-hmph! Thankfully she WAS with me when I made these cards:
My cards and ornaments are almost all finished by using a pouch of Valentine scraps of papers and bits so I'll share the rest in my next post.
Linking to Moo Mania and More (Use Your Scraps); the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes); and T Stands for Tuesday.
Wishing you all a wonderful week, and whatever makes YOU break out into the happy dance!
