I think it might finally be happening … the weather is starting to break. The last few days when I have been outside I have actually seen the sun! I always get excited this time of year. I start thinking of new additions to add to my flowerbeds, which usually get’s my husband feeling slightly anxious. I was looking at my flowerbeds the other day and noticed lots of new growth. I began to imagine all of the flowers that will soon be there and that got me to thinking about this month’s DIY project. I decided on a cute vase to hold all of the fresh cut flowers that will soon be in bloom. If you like to craft, share your ideas and pictures with me.
