Spring HOPE Collage

Doesn’t Spring feel like it’s taking forever to get here? In some parts of the country, it must seem like it’s still winter because the snow is still melting. Here in northern Arizona, our daytime temps hover between 50-60 but the ever-present winds make it seem much colder. No matter where we live in the U.S., I think we could all use a bit of Spring hope!

The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring. —Bernard Williams


Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the Lord.
—Psalm 31:24


Spring Mishmash


Today is the last Monday in April and coincidentally the last day of my Spring image selections. So on this Mishmash Monday, I present to you a mishmash of Spring flower images. Enjoy!

Fun Frugal Door Decor


Is this the cutest way to announce Spring to your guests or what? On this Frugal Friday I want to share a great Spring craft I found from a link at one of my favorite frugal sites, Frugal Girls. It’s so easy to make and a sweet way to announce Spring.

The link at Frugal Girls led me to Crafty Lam, another site full of cute, easy and frugal crafts. Click here for the directions to making this great door decoration.

You scrapbookers out there probably have almost all of the materials and equipment already, but those of us who aren’t into scrapbooking can easily improvise with what we have on hand. After all, isn’t that one of the great things about the frugal life?
