Dogwood bud

Can you feel it? Can you feel the energy in the air as people come out of their houses and welcome the first signs of Spring? Just at the moment when I thought I simply could not bear any more gray, the seasons finally began to turn. In my garden, the first tender baby-green shoots are coming up, and all I want to do is be outside to welcome them.

There is excitement afoot in our house, as we prepare for upcoming performances, house-guests, birthdays, and more. I swear you can feel the electricity in the air!

And today is an exciting day for little ol' me, because my first post at SortaCrunchy appears today! I was so thrilled when Megan approached me and asked if I wanted to contribute some craft posts to her fabulous blog. Me? You sure? I've had a ball getting to know her better, and look forward to contributing some fun crafty content to her lovely, lovely corner of the internet.

So head on over to SortaCrunchy to check out a nifty little craft using cornstarch packing peanuts!

This post is part of the Moms' 30-Minute Blog Challenge, hosted every Tuesday by Jamie over at SteadyMom. Thanks, Jamie!


  1. I can TOTALLY feel the stirrings of spring. Yesterday, we had some terrific spring thunderstorms roll through (even our state's first tornado! Yep! It's spring.), and the sun is just bathing us today. It's glorious.

  2. Yup. I can feel it. My kids have been outside for the past few days! Yay!


  3. I don't even mind the mud -- it's just such a blessing to be outside!

  4. I am rolling in the sunshine! Congratulations on your new gig!!
