Spring Where Are you???

I live in Michigan and I am desperate for SPRING!!!


I am tired of the snow, the cold, the dark and gloomy days, I want the bright sunny days of Spring!

I have tried many different ways to bring Spring into my life!!

I have crocheted a few mini cactus and painted their clay pots in bright Spring colors to bring to my window sill a Spring look. It didn’t work!!


I have colored glass bottles and jars in nice spring colors and bought some beautiful colored flowers to help bring Spring to my kitchen. It didn’t work!!


I have cut some pussy willow branches and forced them to bloom in hopes they would bring Spring into my family room. It didn’t work!!


I am doing a complete make over of my bathroom in hopes of bringing Spring, but the job is taking forever and I see no end in sight, and also now I am just suffering more with only one bathroom. It didn’t work!!


I painted a new painting for my new bathroom, purple Iris’ which look like Spring sitting on my Piano waiting for the bathroom to be finished. It didn’t work!!


I hung a branch in my studio and put some cute colored birds on the branches to try to  bring Spring into my studio. It didn’t work!!



So I guess I will give up on trying to bring Spring into my life.  I will watch while the rest of the snow finally melts. I will watch the sky and hope for sunshine.  I will look out the window at my flower beds looking for the first tulips to pop through the ground. I guess I will wait for Spring to come because nothing I did worked!!


What do you do to hurry Spring along?  What tricks work for you?Please share all your ideas to help bring Spring into your life!!


About Black Raven Creations

I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner. I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!! Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more. I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.

  1. Don’t despair Rhonda, spring will come when you least expect it. We are beginning to see some spring flowers and warmer weather here in the UK. I will try to send it you way! In the meantime you have your beautiful crafts to cheer you up.


  2. Spring is still teasing us in Texas. Warm and sunny one day, chilly and rainy the next. Soon it will be so hot the sidewalks will melt.


  3. We have a beautiful spring here in San Diego, for us under 70F it’s cold, I can imagine your frustration…
