Welcome back for another Festive Friday!

Has spring sprung for you yet? We’re getting really close here in the midwest. The robins have made their first appearance (did you know that many don’t even migrate?) and I’m sure we’ll start to see our crocus start to peek out of the ground soon. Yippee!! Well, over at Festive Friday challenge we’re getting ready for spring too, with a First Day of Spring Inspo List!

(affiliate links are used in this post. When you click on them and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks for supporting my blog!)

Using the Inspo List, grab at least three items and create a project to link to the challenge. There’s a wide range of ideas to choose from, and your project doesn’t have to reflect the “first day of spring” part of the challenge – that’s just how we come up with a fun and interesting list!
