I'm in desperate need of some colors





Too much winter although I shouldn't complain  - it's damn beautiful out there with the snow. I've heard it hasn't snowed like this here since 1987. I always remember my childhood winters as being really white with snow up to my little waist and this fact proves I wasn't making it all up or even exaggerated! 
Anyway...5-6 months of winter does something to you..No wonder we swedes talk about the weather all the time, ha! I need color! and I need to feel the warmth of the sun! I can't wait till spring gets here, so I made a pompom garland in gorgeous happy colors as a reminder to spring which may be here in late march if we're lucky. 
Makes me happy, how about you?

What a great way to brighten your days! I live in North Dakota so I understand 5-6 months of winter. It's wonderful to meet another artist.

PS:Cute pompoms, did you make them?
