The Last Threads of Winter : Seth Apter Inspired Mini Album
Daffodils and Snow
I woke up this morning to a dusting of snow on the ground but on the bright side, the have yellow daffodils in our yard have bloomed. I am excited for the rest of the colorful blooms to emerge. A lot of people have shared pictures of snow drops and I think that I would love to add some of those to my yard. It is the time of year when I start thinking about what I would like to add to my garden but my space is still somewhat small. Fruit seems like the logical choice because that is what we eat the most during the summer but the bugs are something awful.
I have a decent amount of strawberries and blackberries but they never seem to come in at once. I get a few each day, just enough to pop in my mouth while I am picking them. Someone recently suggested that instead of eating them, I should freeze them and eventually I will have enough to make a smoothie or pie. I am looking forward to giving this a try so that I can actually enjoy the fruits of my labor. My blueberry bushes had only a few blueberries last year so I need to figure why they are not producing. Fruit can certainly be tricky to grow. Any tips would be appreciated!
Creating the Layouts
I created a few more pages in my Seth Apter inspired journal. The background book paper has been stained with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. A few scraps of paper, gesso and paint have been added. I stamped a checkered stamp in the background before layering my PA Seth Apter stamps. Thread and splattered gesso were added for texture.

I am joining the T ladies and Elizabeth and Bleubeard with a drink inspired post. I don’t have any new teas that I am drinking so I am sharing a tea on my wish list. This Peachy Keen by Tiesta Tea looks delicious. Maybe sometime I will get to give it a try and share how it tastes. But for now, just a yummy sounding tea to inspire you.
Happy Tea Day,
