A beautiful spring day

Today is a beautiful spring day in the Rockies. Yesterday we had quite a lot of rain, but today the sun is shining. The sun makes all the newly watered flowers and plants look so fresh.
These are my iris blooming, from last year:
I can hardly wait for this year!

when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."

These flowers are from WaltDisneyWorld,

Here are some pretty spring paper dolls:

tip: Why not get out some old magazines, and make more clothes for her?
Remember, you can use cereal boxes as a backing for her.
Just cut out the doll, then glue to a thin cardboard (like cereal boxes).
Cut out, and you have a nice sturdy doll to dress.
Cut out a strip of the box to make a stand.

Thank you again to OrigamiBears for her fantastic sharing!

Here is a favorite quote of mine,
from a DressBarn ad, c.2007:

"Let yourself do something for others today.
Let yourself laugh.
Let yourself make funny faces.
Let yourself eat too much chocolate.
Let yourself meet someone smarter than you.
Let yourself be."
This is one of my favorite rubber stamped cards from my friend, Shelly.
Check out her blog, listed on the right.
The stamp used is from Peddler's Pack.

"Let there be no purpose in friendship
save the deepening of spirit."
- Kahlil Gibran

I hope you have enjoyed my little celebration of spring today.
