Yep, I do have spring fever, and here to celebrate with me is Betty Bunny. I just got her listed on Etsy, too, so I am getting some of my projects going, right? She was tons of fun. I am making a primitive one, but that is still in the works.
My petunias are growing and wanting to bloom! I am pinching them back so they get a little bushier. I bought some flower seeds off of ebay b/f the boycott and they should be in the mail...today???? Can't wait!! The last few days have been beautiful and I've taken advantage of it and actually got my first flower bed cleaned out. I want to keep my flowers up better this year, especially since Kristin and I aren't doing th shop anymore. I'm really looking forward to just being around home. I can still do crafting, but also, all the home stuff that I enjoy. Do I "enjoy" weeding? Well, it takes a push to get me out to pull those obnoxious weeds that I can't seem to conquer, but it's very good for me.
I'm off to a lady's retreat from church this afternoon, so better go get my projects together that I'm wanting to do. Kristin and I are actually leading a craft time with the ladies, and we are making..... coffee filter roses that Cassie Chappell featured on Martha Stewart. That should be lots of fun, and maybe some laughs.

I'm finally getting going on Etsy!! I have been working on some sweet little hooked wool hair pretties, do you like them? They were a lot of fun to make and I even got them listed!! I've had a hard time getting stuff like that done lately.
But today!!! Well, I got a batch of cardamom bread baked for a lady who ordered it, (I baked so much of it at Christmas time, I thought I wouldn't want to see it again LOL). She ordered 4 loaves, so I guess I will have 2 extra to ........take to Church youth group??? Share with family???? I do believe one loaf is going to a very nice elderly man and his wife in our church who are having a very hard time with health issues.
I also got my Marionberry Crumble Coffee Cake baked today!!! Yum, that is so good and buttery and tart/sweet! It keeps very well, and I have been wanting to get some of my baked things on etsy, so...today I'm photographing it!! Who gets it after the photo session???? We'll see!

I had a lot of fun doing the Valentine Giveaway, now I'm going to have to think about doing another one. LOL, I need to finish some things I've been working on for Etsy. I've sold a few things on Ebay, just stuff I've needed to clear out, but I am really wanting to get some things put on Etsy. My daughter started a shop and really likes it, got me talked into it, too.
Jeepers, I just bough like 288 petunia plants on ebay!!! Am I going to be busy or what? My greenhouse probably won't hold them all, and that's not all I need in it! But, how fun! I should be able to plant petunias so thick around here the weeds won't have a place to grow, right? Well, anyway, like I was saying, I have nothing to do LOL.
