I've been patiently waiting for a belated 
birthday gift arriving from Germany!

Hooray, the package just arrived this morning!

 Now that these special Studio friends have arrived
safely, I'll let them tell you the big news 
about what's coming soon....

First, please meet this primitive little gang!

Very rare German composition hares with little stick legs.

Here is the package before I opened it this morning....

I love the look of packages from foreign countries!

I'm always relieved when packages are packed with extra care!

Even the little German sticker looks old!

 Check out the cute bunny butts!  

These little fellows are the perfect mascot for my new mission
here at Scattered Seed Samplers.

That's right, both my heart and hands are calling me
to start this special club, which will offer 
four exclusive rabbit kits per year.

I'm beyond EXCITED about getting this club started!
This is going to be so much stayed tuned 
all you passionate rabbits lover's!

All the details will be released in the next couple of weeks :)


My Studio desk has been de~cluttered .....

....and ready to start designing!

Do you remember my rabbit from Monday, Mr. George?

The sweet little rabbit holding my pens came from the 
same garden shop ~ Terrain ~


I finally finished listing the new full line of pinkeep 
fibers, fillers and beeswax bars in my Etsy shop...

~ A Special Note ~

 To all Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club members ~ 

The first kit 'A Token of Spring' was finished using exactly 
1 full quart jar of sawdust, which I have made available
in my Etsy shop.

  Later in April, when I give the finishing tutorial
I'll also give suggestions on how to pack 
a pinkeep firmly using traditional sawdust.


I'm happy to say that the snow we had on Monday 
is almost gone!

My chives are starting to pop up out of their 
winter slumber...yeah!


I've never taken a picture of running water before...

I wish you could hear the wonderful sound of the melting snow
running out of this rain gutter!

While Winter & Spring battle it out....I'm confident Spring
will be the winner!


Easter is just around the corner, such a fun time of 
the year....especially for kids!


I almost forgot to share these great pictures taken by my son
Sam during our recent snow storm....

A pair of Sand Hill Cranes walking through a field here on 
the farm.

With the snow just starting to come down...they looked

Looking for shelter from the storm...they decided to turn around
and head the other direction!

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me. 

Cast me not away from Thy Presence, 
and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.

Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
and uphold me with Thy free spirit.


~ Psalm 51:10-12...KJV ~


Have a great weekend in your neighborhood!
