Welcome to Friday! Have you been anxiously waiting for spring to arrive on your doorstep? I for one have been loving the longer days, warmer temperatures and the promise of even longer, warmer days to come.
In addition to March being National Craft Month, it’s also Poetry Month. One could say that crafts+spring=poetry. All kidding aside, poets have long been inspired by the beauty of spring:
And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast, rose from the dreams of its wintry rest. ~Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lately I’ve been inspired by sketches! When I came across the Dear Lizzy Enchanted collection, I opened our Go-to Sketches special issue for the perfect sketches to complement this enchanting spring-themed product.
I decided to play with Kim Kesti’s sketch (p. 86), Betsy Veldman’s sketch (p. 109) and Jessica Witty’s sketch (p. 154). The beauty of sketches is you can adhere to them faithfully or use them to jump-start your own creativity.
Would you like some spring product to arrive on your doorstep? Leave a comment telling me how spring inspires you and I’ll pick two winners to receive the Dear Lizzy Enchanted collection from American Crafts. All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, March 20 (the first day of spring!).
P.S. It’s time to announce the winner of Susan’s I Puffy Heart 350 Cards & Gifts post!
