Happy Spring?!

I created this little sign, after being inspired by a posting on Pinterest.  The original used coasters (like you get at a restaurant), but I used balsa wood.  I think the coasters would have been a better idea, as the heaviness of the wood may end up scratching my paint job on the door.

Anyway, when I finished it, I hurried downstairs to hang it up, and when I opened the front door, that's when I saw it:  it was SNOWING!   Mother Spring must demand her time!

Here's a Spring Wreath I made yesterday.  I used white eyelash yarn (found that idea on Pinterest), and wrapped it around a styrofoam wreath (I re-used the one I made for V-Day.)  Than cut artificial flowers with a wire cutter and inserted them into the styrofoam.  Also re-used the bow from the V-Day wreath.  I like that the white reminds me of fluffy snow, and then the flowers are a hint of Spring.  It WILL be here soon!

I've also been working on several other pieces of art, but nothing is ready to be posted yet.
