Happy Easter evening, friends! Carter informed me earlier today that I'd better change the calendar in my craft room, but there was a wee little problem: I didn't have anything made yet for April. That was quickly remedied, though...
I still had Doodlebug's Fruitstand Essentials easily accessible, and happily this springy plaid (it's called 'Fruit Punch Plaid') contained the color I wanted to use - purple. You know I like my colors bold and bright, and to not use purple in 12 months of calendar pages would just be wrong. The only months that really say "purple" are April and October, don't you agree? And seeing as October also has orange and black to choose from (no other month besides October says "black," but November could say "orange"), I thought I'd let April claim purple for itself.
We've had a lot of rain this weekend, but wow! When the sun came out today, I could see that lots of trees and bushes are ready to burst into bloom, including my beloved redbuds. Thus, I selected this flowering tree from Taylored Expressions' Love Grows Here set to adorn April. Here's a close-up:
So, I'm very excited for the redbuds to bloom, but you want to know what I'm even more excited about? The season 3 premiere of GAME OF THRONES tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love love love that show, and I have a mad crush on Peter Dinklage (who plays Tyrion Lannister). I've been wearing GOT tee-shirts all this weekend in honor of this auspicious occasion. Can't wait to see what's been going on in Westeros and how big Daenerys's dragons have become since we saw them last (which was June 3, 2012 - not that I'm obsessive or anything).
If any of you happen to be reading this before the premiere tonight, my next-door-neighbor/BFF/ basically brother Brad and I will be watching together and playing the following game. You're welcome to join us!
