Well, the clocks ‘sprang’ forward an hour yesterday & the day itself did in fact show promise, but today we are once again plunged into rain & low temperatures…I believe they even had snow, north of the border this morning!! I am definitely a 'fair-weather’ person at the best of times, but this year I feel really really in need of some constant sunshine to recharge my batteries!! Hopefully it’s not too far away now!!
As we count down to Easter I am making a list of all the things I want to achieve during the two week school holiday! We will have a family day or two out, but generally the boys are just happy to chill & I find that without the school runs to fit in, I can squeeze so much more into each day. If the weather is dry, I will be out in the garden…some serious work needed out back!!! If not, I will be indoors with paint brush & pasting table in action!! Or, I may get a little of each done!!
I am looking forward to my first bit of chocolate in over a month on Easter Day, & not having to go into work as the store is closed!! Supplies are in for the boys Egg hunt & only last night Alex asked me if I’d try & get a photo of the Easter bunny, like I did with Santa!! Oh the innocence…long may it continue!!
I haven’t been out & about with my camera for far too long, so that is on my agenda too…all I’m using it for lately is photographing LO’s for various challenges…..which brings me nicely to this… Shimelle’s prompt #7…Flowers. I do like flowers, especially the Prima paper ones, but I do tend to buy them to stroke & drool over, so this prompt was a good one to get them out of storage & onto a page!! This photo isn’t of great quality as it’s been scanned & upsized, but I love Alex’s smile in it. He was seven months old for his first Easter & loved his ‘Milky Bar’ Egg boxes. At this point he’d never tasted chocolate, so to him, they were just new toys!! After lunch on Easter Sunday, we introduced him to the joy of white chocolate & he’s never looked back!!!! He IS his Mothers son!!
I used quite a few Prima’s on this LO & included a few die cut egg shapes too. This class really has been a stash buster, as I also used up a whole sheet of adhesive pearls & gems, along with all those flowers!! Not to mention the ‘Core-dinations’ cardstock, of which I have a whole stack & always seem to overlook!..this one was black with an emerald green core. I now have my button stash at the ready for prompt #8…I will be quite sad when the class comes to an end! I’m planning on going back over it all & doing the ‘Celebrate Life’ album…I’m loving everyone’s 12”x6” LO’s in the forum.
So…thanks for dropping by & I hope you’re all adjusting to that lost hour!!
