After an unusual amount of rain, we had this Fairie Circle pop up near our house last year - it must have been about 10' in diameter.

I am hopefull that it will come back this spring. We've started the year off with above average moisture. We have had so much snow this winter that the lake reached the spillway for the first time in probably at least the last 6 years.

I'm hoping for a bumper crop of pink primrose, iris and I have bought a few new tulip bulbs to plant, so I am hoping for a colorful yard in the upcoming weeks.

Design a personalized gift at Zazzle.

Zazzle Store

I've inserted the panel below to give an idea of what's up at my "Zazzle Shop". I post new art on various products here from time to time.

The color me tees are lots of fun - I love the permanent fabric paints= and markers from http://www.yasutomo.com/ and I always find some great stuff in the way of glittery paints at the local Walmart craft department.

If you have any favorites that you'd like to see on a shirt or mug, just shoot me a message and I'll be happy to fix you up. The new hi-top tennis shoes are fantanstic looking and we'll probably try out a pair soon for my daughter. She's really into hi-tops.

I've been reading a really good book on doll making, called "Fantastic Figures" by Susanna Oroyan. I've enjoyed it alot and have really learned alot.


I just can't wait to get in the garden - I use the photos to dress up one of my websites - FairieBower.com. I have alot of fun with this site - being a novice to web design, I am a little limited, but it's great fun. Here's one of my favorite pages -www.fairiebower.com/fairies.html You never know what you might see if you look close!

Rebirth




I'm ready for spring. The truth is, I have been for at least 2 months now. I can hardly wait to see what's made it thru the snow we've had in our area this winter and to get started planting again.


I already have my precious seeds stacked together, ready to start planting and "painting" my garden.
