Are You Ready For Spring!

The winter meltdown has begun! Well, at least in some areas it has. Trust me I'm no stranger to extreme cold and winter weather, so I'm being optimistic. Here in Massachusetts we just got finished being pummeled by snow. Now we are watching it all melt. Weather has gone from temperatures below zero to temps in the 50's. So weird. But Welcome :)

So I'm being optimistic that the worst is over and it's time to get ready for spring! The birds are out; I'm ready for digging out the lighter clothes and storing the winter stuff, spring cleaning, AND... Spring Card Making! Ummmm... Invitations I mean.

Out with the old and in with the new! is taking on a new look! I've been working my butt off getting this site re-vamped. Some of the site is still under construction, so don't be alarmed if you suddenly revert back to the old look of the site. It's just a page awaiting renovation. For frequent visitors with cookies enabled, clear your cookies to see what the new site looks like!

Plenty of invitation making opportunity coming up. Valentine's day is just passing us, and Easter is on the way. Not to mention all fo those Springtime weddings coming up!

Making Easter invitations is great for invitaing friends and family to a Easter Sunday dinner, or maybe even an Easter egg hunt for the kids.

Or simply send out a bunch of handmade Easter Greetinsg Cards.
