happy tuesday everyone!

Getting ready for the promise of warmer weather! In the 50's today...with a PROMISE of 60's on thursday!!! (lalalalala..not listening to the snow prediction for sunday...)

Here in wisconsin...when the summer weather clothing hits the stores...it's time to buy...(just try to find a swim suit in july..lol...there may be a few between the winter clothing racks...lol)
Maddy got a pair of summer sandals and had to model them for the camera...(she asked that you don't notice her chipped polish...lol)

And upon seeing maddy going toe to toe with the camera...(no pun)Maxx had to plop on daddy's brewer baseball cap..for a mug shot...


Had a Challenge to create an easter bunny for Cloth doll artistry this week...Here is what i came up with...(we all used the same pattern...)
Her name is Spring...

I created her from onsaburg fabric...and painted her face...Her clothes i made of voile and vintage laces...her little bunny dollie, eggberta..is made from a vintage pre-loved baby blanket.

and i made these bird in the nest charms for a swap on amusing muses...

working on my inchies...

Hope this post finds everyone well...and ready for spring....(depending on where each of you is in the world...) Sending out my love to all...and as always...

hugz til next time!!!
