*Last Day of Spring Break*

Hard to believe that Spring Break is already pretty much over. That week and a bit sure flew by! It will be so hard to get out of bed with the alarm tomorrow morning! I've enjoyed sleeping in a bit and not having something annoying to wake me every morning!

But it will be good to get the kids back at school and back into a routine. Thankfully most of our current after-school/evening activities wind up at the end of April so we will have fewer late nights, fewer rushed dinners. There will still be piano on Friday afternoons and I have enrolled each boy into a class at the local Rec Centre one night a week for May and June.

Summer break will be here before we know it... and I hope that by the time Summer Vacation is here there won't be snow on the ground!

I've been having a lot of fun playing with all of my new Prima Flowers lately. I had some jars of smaller flowers that I didn't use a whole lot. I chose colours I thought I would use but then never used them. Turns out, I need a wide assortment of colours instead of a bottle of burgundy flowers. And apparently size matters. I have already been through one box of these bigger blooms... a friend and I each bought one box and split them so we had two different types of flowers. I did that again with another friend too. And that Daisy Share I did with Janet was definitely a great idea. Those flowers are just so darn pretty all sitting in my Mason jar!

Very nice card. I am just getting started on my prima collection due to not knowing what I want/what is out there and limited financial resources. I was wondering how people went about choosing their primas; I thought I had a good "starter" collection, and then didn't have a single purple flower to finish off a card! I can appreciate what you're saying about sharing with a friend to have more variety.

Love this one, Nancy. I might *need* to share some of those bigger primas with a friend of mine too!!
