...hoppity, hop and cheep-cheep

We've tried the new year on... we're moving forward and through it with certainty now. It's April.

It's a bright season of bunnies and cheer, new green grass and fuzzy chicks.... Spring always seems happy to be wrapped in pastel foils and decorated with glitter and bits of sunny days....

Have you caught its spirit, the newness that's around us? Christe', Jennifer, Heidi, Pat, and Nicky sure have...look at the treats that arrived this week from their studios. It's a busy time here with artists sending boxes packed with new art, brimming with new ideas, and invariably, bunnies and chicks galore!

My favorite new critter is "Kiebler", Pat Murphy's bear dressed and ready for Easter. I was thrilled that Pat could share one of these with Earth Angels...the remaining edition of 3 bears, with their wee chicks can be enjoyed on Pat's website...along with some other cuties!
Didn't Jennifer do a wonderful job on Martha's TV show on Monday?....well maybe Jennifer is my favorite "creation" of Pat's, but Tom helped too! Here's one of my favorite pictures of Jen and Pat taken during last year's spring soiree. (By the way, if you missed Jen on Martha, see her website for the wodnerful bunny craft she made with Martha on the episode.)
I am also smitten with Pat Castka's wee woolen chicks shown here nestling with Kim Stout's Theorem berries...and Christe' Crocker's glorious bunny dame...just a magnificent creation (we are hoping for more treasures from Deerfield Farmhouse in a few weeks), and of course I love Heidi's cute chickie in a bonnet...oohh I love them all!

So a Happy Spring, a Happy Easter, and a Happy Passover to you and yours, and best wishes as we celebrate the bloom of 2007.

xxoo Jen

Jen Murphy did wonderfully on Martha's show. I can't wait to try my hand at her Pom Pom Bunny. I just love her creations and her mothers too....there's something very magical about them.
