Spring has Sprung at Say It With Letters!

Good Morning, my blogging friends. I'm so excited for Spring!! I'm loving this month's Design Team projects and they're all spring inspired!

I've always loved these BLOOM letters and this design by Laurie is so cheery, bright and oh, so Springy! She painted the sky blue background and painted the clouds on them. The fabric blooms can be found in her Etsy shop, Trinkets.

So so pretty...

Julie Ann felted her Bunny Family shapes. I adore these little guys. :)

She used this hand painted wool top that she bought at the Underground Art Fair last year from The Fuzzy Bunny. Julie Ann has more information on her blog too (check it out!)

Stephanie's Bunny Family is too cute! Definitely my favorite project of hers so far! She painted them , then put white tissue paper on top, then used her Cricut to cut the cap, eggs bows and ears. Too cute!!

Beach umbrella, anyone??! Michelle used our Umbrella shape with shells and a little seagull to create a beach umbrella.

And last, but certainly not least is Jennifer's adorable and Springy (are you catching on to our theme) :) umbrella!!

I love those polka dots!!

I'll be posting a new Design Team call in the next week or so. If you're interested in playing with our products for FREE each month, keep checking in and send in your work! Thanks for reading.

I'm Buzz Lightyear. I come in Peace!

I had to smile when I peeked in on a new blog find of mine, This Blessed Nest. She posted this picture of Buzz Lightyear and it reminded me of my Stevie. He is completely obsessed with Buzz Lightyear, Woody and all things Toy Story. I actually love the movies too. Of course, we will be having a Buzz, Woody and Jessie (for Bella) party for their upcoming THIRD birthday!! More on that soon.

Stevie's been quoting the movie lately. We have two small Buzz Lightyear's and he'll take them and say, "I'm the real Buzz Lightyear. No, IIIII'm the real Buzz Lighyear". The boy is too cute. He's Buzz Lighyear and Max is Woody (per Stevie because of course Max has no idea what he's talking about) and of course Bella is Jessie. It sure is fun having kids.

Visit her blog. She has the greatest idea for a fairy door! Such a sweet idea.
