Hello, Spring

This week's challenge--show us something that makes you think of spring...

I love making stuffed toys. These birds remind me of Spring when the birds return.

We created our first custom "flower girl" necklace when a customer wanted something special to give the flower girl in their wedding. We played around a bit and eventually came up with this sweet heart, filled with a cute flower texture, and the flower girl's first initial. We painted the necklace to match the Spring wedding's colors and the bride was ecstatic! Ever since then, it makes us think of Spring blooms and everyone picks pretty pastels to be painted onto their custom creation.

With spring comes beauty everywhere. The trees are turning green, flowers are blooming, and the sun is out. I wanted to make something to remind people that beauty is about perspective. A dandelion can be considered a weed, but if you look close, it is beautiful just like many things in our world :)

With Spring comes new life and the beginning of wedding season. I started making these boxes because I needed something for the jewelry and embroidered items I sell. So many people loved my packaging and suggested that I sell it - so I have recently made some of my specialty packaging available in my shop. As with all my work, I use recycled materials as much as possible. It is my goal to make things that are new and fresh from what would have been discarded. I think starting off a new life together in an eco friendly way is perfect. I hope you like it.
