 There is a Spring day that will always have a special place in my memory- I was 20 something and traveling by myself to visit a good friend in Washington DC. The cherry trees were in bloom, and the air was wonderfully laced with their sweet perfume. Everywhere you looked, it seemed as if these delicate pink petals were snowing down, softly covering the city in a riot of color. It was pure joy!  And for that one moment, the crowds of people on the street paused, took notice and all smiled a collective smile. 

When I set out to create a design to celebrate this season, my thoughts returned to that day- I wanted to create something that would fill your layouts with color and joy. A design that had a delicate feel but was also  full of the vibrant colors of Spring- and the SAKURA Collection just came into full bloom!

Because I LOVE Dr. Seuss-

Leave a Comment

It's no secret I truly adore Dr. Seuss!  I have written quite a few posts about it and collected them here and even themed my son's graduation party around a "Oh the Places You'll Go!" Seuss theme. You can see some of the ideas and peeks at the party on my Pinboard here 
Just a shameless 40+ year infatuation with the serious silliness he brought to this world- he taught wonderful lessons with a colorful smile- and honestly- I can't get through the "Places You'll Go" book without tearing up a little.  Each year, on March 2nd, we pull out the striped hats and celebrate his birthday.  Sometimes with green deviled eggs- though no one eats them- they can't seem to get past the green! So, most times, I'll pull out the striped hats and we will read a book or two together.  It's one of my favorite ways to brighten up the cold grey days of march- and really- love of Seuss aside- that's what these little celebrations are all about. Adding a little bit of fun to the everyday- finding something to celebrate and then making a little bit of a big thing about it. It's like I tell the boys everyday when I drop them off at school- don't have a good day- make one!  

This week, I am highlighting the ForeverJoy FUNTASTICAL collection  that I designed heavy with Seuss inspiration- fun out loud colors play perfectly with soft krafts and florals- and the word art is filled with heartfelt sentiments that have become some on my favorite designs. (You can see them in action in the video below!) I hope you get to spend a few months March 2nd enjoying a little silliness in honor of the great Doctor!
