It’s the day we’ve been looking forward to all week, all the new clear photopolymer sets are available in the Power Poppy Shop, and girls. I have to tell you, when I stamped them out for the first time, I confess that I squealed a little bit—these might be some of the best I’ve done. I’m not a squealing type normally, more of a “Woo Hoo!” kinda gal. But I squealed because I couldn't believe how awesome and really true to my original drawings they are. PRETTY COOL. We have three showstoppers for you:
And now they can be yours if ya tiptoe on over (by way of the conservatory, past the Camellias, past the Meyer Lemon trees, past the potted Aloes and cacti) to the Scents & Sensibility Collection. Have fun there.
Oh hold on, I have one more little route I’d like you to take time to walk through, before you head through the greenhouse of goodness..... because every member of the Bloom Brigade has one more card to share today. Can you stand it??!!! I might just squeal again!
Who am I kidding... I have some photos to share tooooo! (“Woo Hoo”) Since Easter completely snuck up on me and is THIS Sunday, and since this release has a celebration of daffodils and spring flowers, I wanted to share a few images from Easter several years ago. My folks put on the most glorious egg hunt for Doug’s children and mine in their garden, lined with meandering brick pathways that my stepdad Steve designed and paved himself when I was back in highschool. My mom’s baskets for the kids were filled with carefully chosen goodies — and she has done this for the kids every single year since. Can you say luckiest daughter ever? I can:
I AM THE LUCKIEST DAUGHTER EVER! Thank you, Mom! I think you’ll see what I mean... p.s. All of these photos were taken by my true love, Doug. xoxo thank you, honey!

|Hello from my Mom, Susan Smith, from her lofty vantage point in “the Treehouse” that Steve designed and built. Someday we’ll do an entire post about the treehouse. Steve is a renaissance man!|

Wishing everyone a joyful, love-filled, very Happy Easter!
