...because it's your sweet Sissy's birthday and she's a natural born woman of Spring. No doubt.
...because your beautiful craft space looks a bit gloomy and in need of an overhaul. And you're in the mood to do it.
...because you've started promising yourself that you'll lose the 'winter weight'; salad season is just around the corner.
...because you've noticed that you can colour in or cut out without having to find your glasses a little later each day.
...because your fingers seem automatically to be selecting cheerful ink colours.
...because the paper manufacturers are definitely working on your personal seasonal tastes - Basic Grey Kioshi. I rest my case.
...because you surprise yourself by promising a workshop or two on themes that do not suit you. Cute. Animals. Huh?
...because you have that 'fresh start' feel; the urge to finish some cast aside projects and tidy up a couple of albums seems to be upon you. Even the EHAS album. Blimey.
...because your intentions to learn a bit more about your camera are suddenly an imperative in view of changing light and potential holidays.
...because you hope that at the next gathering, the family is thoughtful enough to coincidentally co-ordinate their wardrobe colours so that an idea for a new album can be made with a fluid and certain continuity. You predict some bossing about.
...because it's absolutely pouring with rain, the light is on in the work room and you're wearing three layers.
Housekeeping: I'm not deliberately monitoring comments, it's just a glitch I guess. And I haven't been able to access them at all today and I know there are a couple of questions I want to answer! Also folks - congratulations - there are 60 desks to look at - if you missed the last handful cos it was getting late - do back track a bit, it'll be worth it! And a final PS: it's actually never too late or too early, just post it!
