Recently I blogged about the signs of spring around my house . . . poppies and baseball, mostly. Yesterday I turned those ideas into an art journal page. The journaling is the opening lyric to a baseball song called "Centerfield." It reads "Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today! We're born again , there's new grass on the field. . ." You can check out a video featuring the song at this link. It meets the call for Art Journal Friday at The Scrappy Tree and just makes me happy because of the color and content.
Something else that makes me happy? Happy mail from amazing, thoughtful blogging friends. Mel who lives in the UK often posts pictures of the food she eats. Recently, she posted about Mars bars, and I went on and on in my comment about how we adore Mars bars but are unable to get them here in the states. (We have a pale imitation in Milky Way bars here). On Monday, totally out of the blue, I received a Royal Mail package stuffed full with Mars bars from Mel! Simply amazing - it made my day! Heck, it made my week!!! I haven't told the kids because I'm planning to surprise them with the treats in their Easter baskets on Sunday. Thanks Mel!!! You're the best!
Finally, if you're looking for my review of March classes, I had to put the post off until Saturday because Shimelle's class is continuing through Friday. Look for the review on Saturday. In the meantime, take a few minutes to respond to my queries about blogging, here, if you get a chance, and please come back tomorrow to check out my latest adventure.
