the fragrance of spring


This is a picture of some wisteria that's growing on our fence. It looked so pretty. Hope you all are thawing out, some that still have snow. I know Sharon from Wildflowerhouse has had enough. This time of year here is very lovely. but come July and August everything will have turned brown again, and it will be 110. So we are enjoying it while it lasts.
I'm working on my next piece for the art faire. The idea comes from "Apprentice" the new publication from Somerset. It's an awesome new zine featuring several artist and their works, with instruction and tips on how they achieve the look.
It's been an up and down weekend. I'm trying very hard to ease some of the stress in my life. I don't know about you, but I've lived with it so long I don't know what it's like not to have stress. Alot to do with my family. Like the saying goes, we don't get to choose. But I do get to choose how much I'm willing to accept. So enough said. I think we all have something in our lives we wish to change, or someone perhaps. I'm learning I can only change me.

I just love wisteria! It's so beautiful!

I understand your stress. Even without you saying what it is, but I understand. Every day I have to choose how I want my day to go. Otherwise, it becomes unbearable. But when I choose NOT to let it get to me, I have a great day! I hope you have great days, Beth!

Hi Beth, Couldn't get on my computer last night. Thought it had a virus as the screen kept blinking weird things. Ha! I had spent the day cleaning and moved something on my desk and it was pushing on a button on the screen. A button I had never seen before. Anyway we didn't discover this until this morning after checking everything out.:-0! I moved the item and all was well.LOL what a doodle brain I am. Talk about stress, I thought it was a goner!!!! Monday will be better. Right . Snow is gone again, now just rain. Sharon
