Spring has Sprung!

... at least in digitized form!

Jennifer Carroll has a new issue of her beautiful Celebrating everyday life - and I think she really knocked it out of the park, with over 200 pages of great finds, DIY's, recipes, styling, interviews, parties and well everyday celebrations :)

I virtually met Jennifer through Holly Becker's blog course and so when she asked me if I would like to contribute to her magazine re-launch - I was thrilled to say the least.  The timing meant that I was unable to contribute a new project (the deadline fell during the move) so instead she was kind enough to include my nest of yarn as a spring DIY.  I am so honoured to be included in this lovely publication. It has it's own app for download here to view on the ipad.  How cool is that?!  You can also read it through magcloud here.  And there is a great clippings option to pin images or in this case create a collage for your blog...

I just love the colours in the Cinco de Mayo celebration from Jennifer, Pat Roberts and Sherry Spencer.  The homemade graduation ideas have me thinking about Ali's approaching graduation from middle school this spring!  I also just love the pom pom DIY from Kelly Elko.  Finally, the garden luncheon with the crown tablesetting (same team as the Cinco de Mayo celebration) looks just spectacular on my ipad.

You can find out all about the magazine and Jennifer at her blog here.  

And for a sneak peek, I have a mini-version on my side-bar.

I am really loving this first look at spring, while the weather people here warn us of another snow storm. I think I will stick with Jennifer's version of what spring should really be about.  It has me coming out of my crafty deadspace and thinking about my project idea for her next issue ...

come on spring - spring already!
