Spring Has Sprung!

Well, maybe not here in Maine...

OK, so that was ten days ago, but it was still March when our garden looked like that. And it doesn't look too much better now. The ground is still covered with snow, and the temperatures have been in the teens (F) most nights. So... yeah... up here in Maine we are ALL experiencing severe "Cabin Fever"!

*runs around screaming and climbing walls*

So, what to do when the "Fever" get to the raging point? Fantasize, of course! Below are a couple of fantasies I made recently. I call them Melon BioBangles. The green one, of course, is Water Melon, and the teal one is Iced Melon.

I've been manically producing zillions of bangles of various types. At some point I'm going to have to do some serious sanding. Maybe, when the air gets a little warmer, I can sit in the (now) glassed in porch and sand... and sand.... and... sand. Either that or download a huge selection of rental movies from iTunes. It's the only way I'll manage to get through this stack of unsanded bangles.

Hmmmm. Maybe I'll go to the bookstore, instead.

I am SO loving where you've been going with these! Sounds like your muse is in overdrive (sadly, mine's on the couch channel surfing).

Lol! Thanks so much, Sheri. Yeah, my muse is merciless. Phew!

But I totally know what it's like when my muse is nowhere to be found, or worse, being a couch potato. lol. Be at peace, she'll get her act together and get ya going soon. She's just recharging. ;)
