Mike and I started a second jewelry class at the Indianapolis Art Center. Since the class started about a month ago, I've finished several pairs of earrings and a necklace.

Our instructor encouraged us to enter the Annual Student Art Show. I was shocked to find out that I won a $100 award for the spinner ring I made last semester!

We received the Art Center Spring Catalog in the mail last week. Since we were already taking a class, I almost tossed the catalog. For some reason I decided to see what jewelry classes were offered, and I was quite surprised to find a picture of Mike in the catalog!

And as you might expect, I've worked on a few craft projects. I visited mom recently, and I came up with a project we could work on together: making wreaths out of fabric. So with a supply of Styrofoam wreaths, fabric, felt and pins in hand, we set out to make wreaths. In a typical fashion, we got a bit carried away, and by the end of the weekend we were sick of wreaths!

Yesterday I found a crocus in bloom in my flower bed. Today it's 70 degrees , and I was able to head out for a walk without a jacket. It's amazing how much this nice weather just lifts your spirits...
