Still waiting for SPRING !


I have to admit the snow is gone...the grass & trees are green...and flowers are trying their hardest to bloom...but it's still gloomy and cold here in NE Ohio.  We keep fluctuating from warm back to cold & it seems to take forever for it to warm back up again.  

To me, springtime means warm SUNNY days...I sort of remember SUN here.
Have I told you lately just how much I miss Southern CA?

Since I can't seem to have Spring weather, I guess I'll have to settle for making some springtime artwork.  The girls over at the Red Lead Paperworks Yahoo group are currently hosting an altered house swap with the theme "Fly Away Home"  Before the swap was announced, I had been working on the house you see above.  The chipboard houses that are used for this swap are so much fun to work with...and don't you love the chipboard bird, too?  The little 1" high picket fence seemed like the perfect finishing touch for this house. 

I still need to finish the 2 houses I'm doing for the actual swap.  This swap is due by June 1, 2010, so I'll be getting those done very soon & I'll share them in another post.
