Signs of Spring

Signs of spring are all around here in Northern California.  We still have a chill in the air, but the sun has been out recently and I see buds and blooms everywhere. 
I haven't had any time to create, let alone post, in the last couple of weeks.  To make it short, my work schedule changed temporarily to graveyard shift (eek!) and that has been very difficult for this morning person to acclamate to.

I've also been interviewing for a new job and that has taken lots of time and energy.  Things should be settling down this coming week.  I'll still be on the job search, but am changing my hours at work to part-time.  Hopefully, I will stop walking around like a zombie during the day and be able to put some crafty ideas to paper.

Anyway, I would love to give some blog candy away.  Yes, you heard me; if I can't make anything fun, I can at least give away something fun!

I have three Stampin' Up retired sets that need a good home.  These are gently used, and some never used sets that are already mounted on EZ mount cushion.  Just leave me a comment and I will do a random generator and announce the winner on Sunday morning, which is also the start of daylight savings time.  Below are the names of the stamps sets in question.

* Mostly Flowers
* Fabulous Four

Til next time,


  1. Hi Wendy,

    The flowers in your yard look so pretty. Nice to see a new blog post. I hope everything goes well with your job interview. It was so nice to see you last Friday.

  2. Hello!

    I love the photo! I am SO ready for Spring! Here in WI we are having lots of rain but also warmer weather in the 40's and 50's!! Most of the snow is gone now, but one never knows what we may still get here in this part of the country!

    Wishing you luck in your search for a new job and hope that you will soon get some rest so you can begin to create again! :<)

  3. Hi Wen,

    Yes the signs of Spring are here! Yeah I am so ready! My poor garden gnome is buried in weeds. I need to go dig him out. Can't wait to see what you will be creating next!
