First day of Spring, 21st March

Its the first day of Spring today and its piggin' freezing!  I have just walked my dogs and past my neighbour who announced that tonight we are expecting yet more snow!  a possible 6cms.  I think today being the first day of Spring its now quite alright to moan about the long, dark, cold Winter.  Its been the coldest March in 50 yrs apparently and today it really does feel it!


Spring brings babies round the farms and in the fields so we have something to look forward to, Spring Lambs bouncing around in the green fields and sunshine with floaty daffodils nodding their heads in amusement.  Some time ago I wrote a tutorial for a lampwork glass sheep bead and popped it onto the Craft Pimp forum and this week its been included in the Craft Pimp Blog click HERE to read how to make lots of Shaun the Sheep glass beads.

As well as baby lambs Spring brings us bright flowers, sunshine and hopefully a bit more warmth!  I listed in my Izzybeads shop yesterday this fabulous Spring necklace

Blue and Amber Rose glass necklace

ROFL Laney the first day of spring was yesterday!!!Wow what a couple of fab spring pieces of jewellery...I love that stunning necklace. I think the egg came first but hey lets not go there. I really hope you can make you coop fox proof and get some more real ones ;0) Good luck at the craft fair, I would love to come if I was nearer. We are off to Southampton for a belated birthday dinner for Milly. Take care, Jane xx
