Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

Now that the holidays are over, the magic of winter is gone for me. I never know what to do with myself come January as I just wait for the sun to come back and for flowers and birds. You could call me a winter grinch. So, I’m skipping right ahead to spring this week, maybe we can fake it until the winter is over.
