come on, spring!

Thanks to Emily Kircher for posting a link to this article about Anthology, the new paper & craft store that opened in Madison this past weekend. It's a great write up!

I got the gocco out this weekend and printed some owl bibs. Lars helped me out by putting each bib on the pad before I pressed the ink. He got bored though and wanted to do the pressing the ink part himself. I let him do this a few times but only on paper. I can't wait until he has some of his own designs! He is becoming quite the little scribble artist.

I also worked on cleaning my house this weekend. We are having a going away party at our place on Saturday for my brother and sister-in-law who are moving to New Orleans next month. I'm totally sad that they're leaving but of course I'm excited for them. We're going to eat tacos and cake and celebrate the big move. I have no idea if we're doing anything for Easter. I can’t think that far ahead yet. And yes, I know it's on Sunday.

If only spring would arrive! I am waiting patiently. I made some springy cards yesterday between loads of laundry. The images are from a vintage children's book. I don't know what I'm going to do when I've used the images in that book all up! It's was such a perfect find.

It's supposed to snow this week in Madison. Seriously.

Welcome home! Sounds like you had a nice vacation.
I nabbed one of your umbrella cards at the Anthology opening this weekend. I love that design so much! I've got quite a thing for umbrellas lately.
