Happy March!


Seems that all is abuzz now that March has arrived. Did you see the moon last night? Amazing! The kids opened the door this morning to go play in the snow before school and the most wonderful earthy smell spilled through the house. I took a deep breath in and savored it. Every day we get closer to spring. I've been busy making plans to visit this lovely lady in Portland in April and my traveling companion for the journey is my wonderful friend Hope. I'm also very busy with a HUGE etsy update to be posted in the next couple of days. Finally, a swap announcement will follow shortly after.
hurray....March is here!!

I'm also very excited to say there's an event coming to the twin cities this fall that is not to be missed. It's called Creative Connection and is the brain child of Jo Packham and Nancy Soriano. There are going to be three days of amazing classes, see them all here. Jen Murphy is teaching and has been blogging about her classes. There will also be an incredible handmade marketplace and the keynote speakers for the event are Amy Butler and MaryJane Butters. It's going on the same weekend as the Junk Bonanza. So between these two events, there is absolutely no reason not to come to the twin cities this fall!

Kari,
Is it really spring here?I did see the moon last night and it was spectacular!

You, Hope and Michelle will have a wonderful time. I got to go to the neated little craft store when I had dinner with Michelle and her husband.

I am going to be in Croatia when the Jo Packham conference is here. How can that be??? My exchange student son is getting married. I can't miss that but I am very disappointed.

Will be looking for your swap announcement and your Etsy update.
