Spring Has Sprung at PAFA

Happy April 1st everyone! The Spring Has Sprung at PAFA Celebration has begun. What's a celebration you are probably thinking? Well, this one doesn't have any cake or ice cream but what it does have is 83 wonderful springtime creations made by 21 of the PAFA team members.

Each team member was allowed to enter up to five items in the celebration. I have to say that I spent a lot of time deciding just what theme I would do for this celebration.

At first I thought I would do bunnies. But they can be so Eastery. Not saying that I don't like a bunny or two around, but I thought I would do some signs based on another one of my passions....Gardening. Of course I knew I just had to do a typography sign about gardening.

And then I came across this lovely poem written by Dorothy Frances Gurney in 1913. I just love it. I know when I am in my flower beds working beside of all of God's beauty there is a peacefulness.

And upon further searching I found this lovely saying. Wouldn't this look lovely hanging on a garden fence or garden shed? What a nice invitation to extend to others. I know that I think quite often about putting up a 6' high privacy fence around my backyard, but then think that I wouldn't be able to share the beautiful flower and vegetable gardens I have with my neighbors.

And last but not least, this is one of my most favorite quotes..."The earth laughs in flowers" by E.E. Cummings. And what a jokester she is!

So be sure to stop by etsy and type "STPAFA" into your search bar or better yet, click on the link to see all the wonderful items that are being offered for sale by the PAFA team.

Until next time...
