Welcome Spring~


According to the calendar, Spring has arrived.  However, here in the Northern Rockies winter-like weather is keeping any spring fever at bay.  Recently, we've completed month 5 of snow cover here on the valley floor, and our area was termed as the "snowiest place on earth".  Late May usually brings sunny days, blooming tulips, and possibly some brave butterflies, but it never hurts to dream about them now.  It is normal for us to experience straggler snowstorms thru early June keeping us wondering if summer will ever arrive, and when it does...we'll be soaking up some sun!

Micro Christmas Tree~

This is a trial piece with my new microtip scissors. I picked up a slip of dark blue paper aiming to maximize the piece I cut from it. I didn't have anything in mind- I just cut and let it take shape.  This is what became of it.  It measures 3/4" x 1".  A tad bit challenging to hold and cut simultaneously.
