Welcome Spring! 10 Fun Projects & More

I’m happy to welcome in the arrival of Spring.  While I know the actual date that we recognize Spring is not always the actual date Spring may arrive, I’m still happy to welcome it and hope that it soon brings all the freshness of Spring to you very soon.  Yes, for me, Spring welcomes in new color, the smell of refreshness, the colors of cheerfulness and creativity.

I hope you find plenty of #CreativeGoodness with the arrival of Spring.  In recognition of the arrival of Spring, I want to highlight some projects that have caught my attention, as well as some free patterns & tutorials:

Hello Springtime, by Jedi Craft Girl is a fun design that would be great with fabrics for any season, but certainly welcomes springtime with these beautiful fabrics.  And, the design is fully tested by this sweet cat.

On a completely different note, Dairy Queen is celebrating the arrival of Spring by way of giving away free ice cream cones on March 20th.  While this is FREE, Dairy Queen is hopeful recipients will donate money where 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.    This is a great cause, thus I want to encourage everyone to try to pop into their local Dairy Queen to welcome in Spring and make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Heck, use this as an opportunity to get your family and friends out and enjoy such a treat, as well as raise money for a very worthy cause.
