Seasons Change!

It is official...Spring is here!  Here's hoping you are seeing signs of Spring in your neighborhood!

This week we are talking about the change in seasons.  What does this mean to you?  It can be the obvious beginning of Spring with Easter and other associated events (sports, vacations, etc.) Or it might be a four seasons type of project.  We at Heart 2 Heart are anxious to see how you interpret this theme and hope that you will link your project.  You have until the end of the month to do so...just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart project.

Now, please take a look at the inspiration from our Design Team!

You can't really make beautiful things without tools. We always dream about the perfect paper, the perfect stamp or the perfect color...but how about the perfect tool? What is that one tool that you just cannot seem to live without? What is the tool that is your go to?

This week at Heart 2 Heart we thought we would feature our Favorite Tool

Make sure you stop by each DT members blog to find out what their favorite tool it and please link up below and let us know what your favorite tool is!

Happy Crafting
