Hi Everyone!  First I want to post the stones for the February birthday folks and they are:|February Stones for the Birthday Girl!
Amethyst, Amber, Blood stone, Cat's Eye, Jade, Crystal Quartz, Aquamarine, Blue Lace Agate and Peridot! Check out what the metaphysical benefits on Patti Cook's page!
The winter has been on and off, the temps are just as crazy!  Two days ago we were above freezing and all the snow from the weekend melted, then today the winds came blowing through and the temps. dropped to -5 celcius!  Oh well, we KNOW that spring is on it's way eventually.  Besides it's nice to actually stay at home and get things done!
Karen will have lot's of Artistic fodder on her return from a month long trip to Indonesia with her husband!  WOW!
Lou Ann finished up her winter exhibit, Nancy is preparing for a big move and Patti is playing away at her easel with some textures and paint!  Hopefully we'll see some new works soon.  As always for Patti's items visit her online shop to scope out what is there!  Well, I also "think" that the birds I saw outside today are grackles or cow birds and they are migratory birds.  They are also the first ones back for the spring, so I don't know if it's the indicator that spring is here or not we'll see!  Okay until next time, love lots and do what you love!
