Don't look at the snow....put blinders on and then walk right into THE CINNAMON STICK -then take off the blinders and enjoy SPRING - (yesterday was a BIG meltdown of the piles of snow...although some piles will need alot more sunny days)!! When I walk into the store in the morning I am greeted with the beautiful scents of Minty Orange, Red Hot Cinnamon, Clarity (? - my favorite right now) and Lavender! The bright yellow forsythia candle rings and wreaths, and beautiful faux sprigs of pansie, daisies and other signs of spring bring smiles, and I am in my "happy place"!
I busy myself with cutting out bunnies and peeps to make price tags, and use my punches to make "sprinkles" for your take home packages using colored paper of pink, robin's egg blue, yellow and lime green (spring at it's prettiest)....I am humming songs such as "In Your Easter Bonnet".....sadly I don't know the words...so I have to hum - (I NEED to know those words cause I love that song) !! I AM IN LOVE WITH SPRING!
Someset Studio Magazine arrived and is filled with tons of wonderful "springthyme" artwork - some really neat projects too! Inspiration aplenty - just the cover is exciting!
