spring pussywillows

DigiDare 172_ minimal spring

spring arrives late here in the mountains of Pennsylvania, the grass is just starting to green, and about the only new growth is the buds on the trees and shrubs, and the pussywillows, a much welcome sight indeed!

journaling: "the first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another, the difference between them is sometimes a month."

life is our canvas

ADSR5 collaborative challenge 10, hosted by Inspiration Lane

My partner, Amanda and I agreed that we are both truly inspired by the everyday – by our homes, the kids, our family, our lives are our canvas. Our creative endeavors reflect that. And we couldn’t be happier (heartfelt journaling by Amanda, of course, many thanks gf)
