Spring is finally here (WOYWW)

Spring has finally reached Sheffield. The sun has been shining, and the daffodils (my favourite flowers) are finally beginning to bloom. Today it was even warm enough to take my coat off! For me, life always feels that much more hopeful at this time of year, and having managed to complete my marking on time, I have even managed to do a little crafting! 
For my entry to WOYWW this is my desk (photo taken on Tuesday evening) with my trusty mug of tea (nearly finished), my smash book and pen, pencil, rubber, phone, ipad and hiding behing the mug several acrylic paints.  At the very back of my desk is an altered CD I made, ready to be sent to the recipient (see previous post for a close up and more details).
Here is the latest page in my smash book...as you can see I am a few weeks behind now, but hope to catch up again over the next week or so.  This page is entitled 'Palm Sunday with Snow' and has three different acrylic paints in the background, my palm cross, the photos from the day and some silver snowflakes (thanks Jo!).
That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

Daffodills mean a lot to me so they are one of my favourite flowers. They herald spring so well and are bright and cheerful.

Palm Sunday with SNOW... amazing! Can you imagine the memory you've got for years to come?
Glad to see you are finding use for some of the contents of my box of bits!!
Trying to face a big clear up but had to catch up on blogging the latest quilts that arrived whilst I was on my travels (or sickie).

Oops.. .I sent my message before saying hope you are all well and love from Jo x

Your Smash book is coming along!!! I find them less intimidating than a scrapbook, even though they are basically the same idea, lol! Happy crafting!

Hi Caro,

Oh it does looks so cold there, but nice to know you could take your coat of for a little while, soon the warm weather will be upon you and you wont know what to do.

Great layout in your smash book, I can't even begin to imagine the snow during Easter, here is is usually beautiful weather.

Happy Belated WOYWW
