Adventure Bound Prayer Journal & First Signs of Spring


Today a DIY Prayer Journal, yesterday tinted Mason Jars.  I stepped away from cards this weekend to share with you some fun 3D Crafts and Gift Ideas.  The focal point of my Prayer Journal is..............Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper.  My Window Sheet Overlay includes a stamp from the Flower Patch stamp set.  Hint: When stamping on a non-porous surface such as a window sheet, I recommend Stazon Ink.

 Now about those first signs of spring

  Maple Syrup

The reassuring drip, drip, drip of sap hitting the bucket is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner.  Maple trees store store starch in their trunks and roots before the winter; the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in the spring.   Yes, the sap is running and just look at that beautiful blue sky!

Tapping Maple Trees

Our son, Bryan, came up to help us tap our maple trees yesterday.  Making Maple syrup is a great way to usher in spring and it's a fun family activity.


Have a fabulous day!
