I’m here today to share with you the start of another new column I am going to be doing. Today, I am introducing “From My Inspiration File,” where I hope to share everyday things I’m passionate about, such as treasures discovered in our yard and gardens, time spent on a trail, a visit to the botanical gardens, a morning at the farmers market, an afternoon at the zoo, a day on the beach or on the trails.
These are things in life that bring me peace and require unplugging from social networking as a way to find my own voice, to be more original, and to create my own muse. (how ironic, I know) I’m hoping you might be inspired too or simply uplifted by some of the shapes, textures, and colors I hope to share.

We’ve had an streak of unusually warm weather around here lately. In fact, it feels like summer already, rather than the cold, damp days we usually have in March. So I spent a lot of time cleaning up our yard and gardens over my spring break.
Spring is my favorite season, so I’ve started my daily treasure hunt. Right now, the crocuses are opening.
They are the tiniest, most subtle flower that could easily be missed if you don’t know where to look.
Our daffodils started to open too! They are such a cheerful flower.
Stay tuned for lots more garden updates as everything around here comes out of dormancy and back to life. Thanks for stopping by!
PS – in case you missed the release of my first sewing pattern (yippee!) over the weekend, click here for more information. More patterns to be released soon!
