If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Amanda before, now's your chance! She's having her first blog giveaway right now and if I were you, I'd be running over there to sign up for it (I did!)-she's giving away one of gorgeous (and I do mean GORGEOUS!) necklaces! And while you're over there, she had a birthday last week, you could flood her with belated birthday wishes, too! Amanda is a good friend of mine, and I'm fortunate enough to live close enough to her that if weather permits, we can get together occasionally and "art" the day away. Now that spring's officially here, we can start doing that again, although spring in WI translates into you never really know what the weather will be like. For example, they're talking 7"-8" of snow starting tomorrow sometime. The good news is that it doesn't stick around long now. The giant allium is already up a few inches, and I noticed the bleeding hearts poking through in spots, too. So soon, very soon, spring will be here to stay! Will try to get some studio pictures up tomorrow, at least that's the goal, so see you then!
