color therapy

if you have friends on the east coast, you may have noticed that most of the pictures they've been posting have been white. we have so much snow around here that even i, who am lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful hues every day, desperately needed some color around here... so we finally found the perfect place for our rainbow maker, which is a lot of fun - it results in the bean screaming "rainbow" at random times through out the day and the cats giving chase to rainbows that disappear and seem to totally blow their little cat minds.

we also made recycled heart crayons, after cleaning out our endless supply of broken and de-papered ones. these will be packaged and given with our greenstarstudio valentine cards when the bean finally goes back to school. we used some of the smaller bits to make a waxed paper heart chain, which i'll post tomorrow, hopefully.

i've also been digging deep for a tropical flower vibe, and have started making a few spring flowers to hold me over until we can have some buds in our garden. (i'd actually settle for some green grass about now.)

and really, we're feeling better already. i can tell, spring is just around the corner.

snow day(s)

the snow came, we shoveled and played, we aren't sure if we'll ever get back out of the house. the bean found it amusing until the cold seeped through four layers of clothing, while the little guy preferred to watch it from the comfort of our living room. i can see the value of both of those strategies.
