Daffodil is the March Birth Flower
The daffodil symbolizes ' unequaled love (one that can not be rivaled or imitated'.
February is only, as I am writing, has two days until the end. Then we happily bring in March. March is the month of many celebrations: the 6th is the beginning of Lent (46 days before Easter), the 10th is daylight savings time (always a welcome time as the days get longer), the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th (the day everyone around the world becomes Irish), and the much anticipated 20th of March – the first day of Spring. Oh, and March 28th I have down as the day to renew my driver’s license (my birthday is in April).
February was busy, but such a fun month for creating: new items for my shop, special Valentine boxes for my family, and taking on “21 Day Fix Challenge”**. ** (side note: I recommend this Beachbody Challenge. The program is easy to follow and my favorite is the portion cups and having a Coach to lean on for support. Here is a IG of my Coach (be_fit_about_it). Look her up if you are looking for motivation to being healthy and a fun program.)
In February my biggest dilemma was my list of goals. Even though I started my work earlier in the month and still did not finish at the time I had anticipated. Why? Is the question I always ask myself, but I already know the answer.
I make my list, set my goals without taking into consideration that I have a life outside of art, photography, and fooding (Is that a word? I, of course googled it, and it is a word in the Urban Dictionary. Their meaning: ‘the act to eat food’. My definition: the act of creating (a recipe), preparing (said recipe), and photographing (the finished product). In addition I am always thinking of things that might make the project even better. This lengthens the time needed for completion and adds to my list. Basically I bring it on myself. Even though I did not finish all my projects on time everything that came out of February was fun and a joy to make. (As you look at the photos in the captions there are links as to where you can find the hand made items, the cookie cutters, and the sprinkles.)
Enough words, here is my February in pictures.
