I was so happy when I saw these growing in our yard…

Aren’t they so pretty?

I noticed the trees at work have begun to bud…the birds have been chirping away…and there’s a freshness in the air.

Spring is here! And welcome to a season of new beginnings!

This post is rather late, seeing that my birthday was over a month ago, and we’re on the verge of spring, but I really wanted to share this necklace, so…

Last year when I turned 40 I decided to buy myself a gift (or gifts) and I ended up buying a few pieces of jewelry from different artists on Etsy.

I thought this would be a good tradition to continue, so this year for my 41st birthday I bought this necklace from Wearable Art by Jude

a tree in winter

I had contemplated buying this last year but didn’t. So I decided to get it this year. I really love it!

me in the winter

This necklace reminds me of a teaching by Joyce Meyer. She said there are times in your life when it seems like nothing is happening. You’re not getting anywhere, things are not working, and you’re ready to give up. Like a tree in winter, you feel bare and dull, empty and lifeless. But don’t be deceived! Inside, there is new life preparing to burst forth at just the right time.

So just hang in there!

I don’t know much of a daring adventure my life has been lately, but I find this quote inspiring, and I certainly aspire to live my life as a daring adventure!

The first few weeks of February were a bit rough with personal issues causing stormy weather. Last February was like that too. But things have calmed down and are peaceful now, thank goodness.

But of course I’ve ended up late in finishing my February page in my calendar journal. It should have been done 2 weeks ago. oh well. At least it’s done now. And here it is…

february

At first I was thinking of a black color theme, under the influence of my personal February storms and a Rasputina song called Dark February. But then I thought that was too depressing, so I decided to do something different and go with a “love” theme in pink, black, and silver. It still came out on the darker side though!

There are many layers of paint, with rubberstamping on top of that (I used these cool chandelier stamps and a love stamp). Then came a layer of Glimmer Mist. The journaling squares were cut from scrapbook paper; I ran black ink along the edges and then once they were glued down I went around each one with a charcoal pencil. I used silver glitter stickers to spell out “February”, and I punched small circles out of charcoal glitter paper and glued them on for just a touch more sparkle. I’m very pleased with this page.

Of course I’m behind now with the March page…ugh. Maybe I’ll get caught up for April!

Thanks for stopping by!
