A Breath of Spring on a Wintry Day

Zena, Maggy and Lilly couldn't stand it one more minute. They insisted upon putting on spring clothes, even if there was snow and sleet outside here in Indiana and temperature below 32F. They've apparently had it with winter, and so have I! While there may only be three weeks left until spring, it hardly seems near. There have been no premature robin sightings or peeking of crocuses from the ground. No buds spotted on trees. No young men's fancies turning to love. But definitely a bad case of spring fever. Definitely!

Arte du Blythe Charm Swap

Things have been pretty quiet around Blythe-land, as evidenced from my last post being on Christmas. Yikes! But some members of the Yahoo! group Arte du Blythe have been busy making charms for a bracelet project, hosted by Miss Vicky in California. Eight artists from North America will make up the bracelet, including Miss Vicky and me, Sandy from Canada, Maija from Arizona, Carrie of Florida, Lisa from New Jersey, Angela from Michigan and Kim from Nebraska.
The very pink charms above are by Sandy and are to die for! Can't wait to see them in person. They make my Blythe eyeball and paper clay girly charms look pretty sad. Hopefully my charms will blend in to the whole bracelet. Can't wait to see it! For more on charms, check out my art blog.
