Is it spring yet??

Hello all (waves to Gail and Dru). There was a big snowstorm in these parts on Sunday night. I hadn't watched the news all day, and there was just about an inch late at night, so I was surprised to wake up to a bunch of snow. I had done this ACEO on Sunday and thought the snow in it was exaggerated, but it turned out to be a self fulfilling prophecy.

I hope the snow doesn't hurt my crocus, which were just coming up, they were about a quarter inch tall. I usually don't notice them until there are a bunch, but I am so sick of this winter, I am looking for any sign of spring. (I do reserve the right to bitch about summer and say I can't wait for the colder weather.)

It is ACEO theme week time on eBay again. This month the theme is Caterpillars, Butterflies and Ladybugs. In my research I came across a Hickory Horned Devil Caterpillar, which I found to be quite unique. I love the 'horns' coming out of his head. (Reminds me of an axolotl.) He hasn't gotten a bid yet so I guess I am the only one who finds him handsome. haha. You be the judge:

I didn't post about the NFAC (NibbleFest Art Contest) last month but better late than never. The theme was Vintage Cats, so I dressed my Beanie up in proper 50's fashion, pearls and gloves. I, along with two other artists, came in first place with 9 unique bids.

I do hope to post more regularly this month. Thanks for stopping by!

Love the rat looking out the window! I too am tired of winter but also will reserve my right to bitch about the heat this summer!

Sales are slow right now. Maybe they will pick up soon.

Oh I LOVE the snow day rattie! It's GORGEOUS! I couldn't think up anything for vintage cats myself. You definitely deserved 1st place with your lovely kitty. Cheers!
