Even though it was 23˚ outside this morning, we are busy cultivating spring inside. A friend gave us this hearty crocus that seems to want to grow more and more new flowers each day, and I have been concentrating on carving woodsy animals and plants that love to frolic outside in the warm spring air. A girl can dream, right?

A good portion of the top of the acorn disappeared as I happily carved away, but I like it just fine.

My next post will be about how I am challenging myself to use five things from my recycling bin each week to create a project. The first one should be ready soon. Stay tuned.
