Okay, now we are beginning to feel it. Despite the unexpected wet snow this week and an occasional cold breeze, I really feel like this time it’s safe to say we’ve made it over the hump and spring is upon us. Grass is greening up, little buds bloom on the trees, chocolate bunnies are on the shelves at every major supermarket. Not sure if that last part was really related, maybe more just my subconscious desire for Cadbury Eggs popping into the blog for a moment.
Just because we are past the holidays doesn’t mean special occasions stop happening during spring. This is wedding season, baby season, Thank Goodness It’s Finally Warm Day (a new national holiday), birthdays, just TONS of festivities that send us out to the store trying to find something really thoughtful for our celebrating loved ones.
I personally find that task really hard, which is why you can usually find me making my gifts. They are more personal and it’s easier to custom fit it to their desires! These are also, hands-down, my favorite gifts to receive!
You’ve heard me say it before and I will say it again, Whimsy is the perfect way to kill two birds with one stone; you can get some time in with people you love during a painting event or open studio, while creating a gift for someone special who has a birthday coming up! In this busy world, killing two birds with one stone is pretty priceless!
In an even bigger rush? Grab a gift card so they can create their own wall art! It makes an awfully cute addition to an Easter basket filled with Peeps and all of their other festive friends.
See you next week, you generous little artists, you!
