First… I have a little announcement.

A little more than three years ago, I embarked on a fun weekly adventure called Project Inspire{d}. I have so enjoyed seeing what you create and share each week and believe me, choosing features is the hardest thing ever.  It is with sadness I announce, this is the last time I will be joining my dear friends and co-hosts of Project Inspire{d} as a co-host.  The weekly link party will go on without me.  I’ve decided to step back from hosting for various reasons (and yes everything else here on the blog will go on as normal).  The hardest part of my decision was this wonderful friendship I have with Mary Beth, Malia, and Steph. Alas… we will continue to remain friends and cheer one another on.  It’s been a good run and I will finish with a final wrap up of the features from this week’s link party which you can look forward to this weekend.  I do hope you’ll continue to visit here with me at An Extraordinary Day and link up at one of the other gals’ blogs each week for Project Inspire{d}.


Second… I absolutely giddy today for this First Day of Spring!

Yesterday I discovered that the pussy willows were coming on and those little soft furry little pale gray catkins were stunning against the clear blue sky.  We stopped the car to take some trimmings.  I have so many ideas… but haven’t quite decided what I will do with my bundle of kittens.  You’ll just have to watch the blog to see. [wink]

In celebration of the First Day of Spring, I’ve created a sweet 8×10 printable art quote for you to print out and frame.  The colors are so soft and lovely.  I hope you can find just the right spot or create a vignette around it.  "Spring Has Returned" Beautiful Floral Watercolor Art 8x10 Spring Printable Quote to Download for Personal Use ONLY
