In preparation for the Farmer's Market, in between working on contracts and the normal things that happen in day-to-day life, I made a couple of table top signs and the Wonderkid's school asked for banners to let people know about the Garden Activities during the Market.

I'm still working on the logo so all comments are welcome (constructive criticism especially). I want something that I can use for the canning and for crafting. I would like to put it at the top of the blog and make it the header for my emails. It should be friendly and approachable, a little homey maybe but still somewhat creative and fun. I like the idea of a handwriting font although I'm not sold on this one, yet. I was hoping the drops could look like ink drops or they might be splatters of tomato sauce, blueberry jelly, etc. Did I achieve any of my goals?
Here are closer views of both of them. I cut everything out of vinyl (easy to remove once I have landed on a final version).
Here are the banners for the school's activities. Remember that I had this request on Wednesday for a Saturday morning event. Not a lot of time to get everything together. I was cutting at 2 AM and weeding while I waited in line at the large trash amnesty day in our town.
I wasn't the one to hang either of these. I probably would have done them a little different. The next one is pulling because they taped it to the supports. Oh well, I really need to have more hours in the day.

The lettering is from the Cherry Limeade cart. The flowers and watering can came from the April Showers cart. I need to remember this font more often. It is a lot of fun for a sign like this. I really needed a bit more time to make the cuts work the right way. It is a bit of a bummer that it isn't a bit nicer. I keep trying to remind myself that it was only up for about 4 hours.
SPRING IS HERE
Spring has finally arrived in Atlanta. I was reading a post from the Scrappy Jedi and she made me think.
It was a wonderful post about how not to work on your birthday. Now, I happened to be reading it the night after my birthday and bemoaning the fact that I was crazy busy on my birthday. However, she showed an incredible picture of a cherry blossom and I kept thinking I should at least try to take some pictures of the cherry blossoms. This cherry tree has branches trying to get in my window so I hear it even when I can't see it.
Here is an attempt at a picture of the blossoms:
I think it came out OK.
I also took a picture of the apple tree at the bottom of the drive. I had a wonderful picture of this same tree during the snow this winter (which was about 6 weeks ago). I think these two pictures might be begging for a scrapbook page. What do you think?
As a reminder, don't forget to comment on this post for your chance to win my Birthday Giveaway.
