I know that there is a big  gargantuan pile of snow in my front yard but I have spring on my mind! I want the flowers to bloom and the birds to sing. Why do I live in Canada!! Where it is winter almost 10 months out of the year!?!?

The only solution to my spring fever was a springtime craft!

It is similar to my Valentine's Day blocks but with a spring twist.

Using four more of the wooden blocks that my dear husband cut up for me. First I painted them some lovely bright colors.

Then because I'm not that talented in the drawing department I used good old Google to find me some spring time silhouettes that I traced over on the blocks,

Once I traced them I painted the silhouettes then let them dry.... and Ta-Da some lovely spring time decor.

And because this craft is so pure and simple I had time to wipe together some thing with buttons!

Surly now spring will arrive quickly.

"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. 
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."
Henry Van Dyke
