Designer Line Up for March!

Welcome to Craft Project Central for March 2017!!

 

Hope you’re having a great year so far!  Can’t believe that it’s already March!!  March is known as the month that “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” 

 

March came to have the idiom of the lion and lamb associated with it because of its tumultuous weather. It straddles winter and spring and tends to display characteristics of both. The weather may fluctuate between snow and warm spring-like weather. Although either weather pattern happens throughout the month, generally its considered that the beginning of the month sees the end of winter with milder weather toward the end of month.  Living in Hawaii I don’t get to experience the extreme weather changes, like I know a lot of you do!

 

For March, we have one new guest designer, Karen Hallam!  Karen has designed a really beautiful Easter project for us!  Make sure you check back on the 6th when Karen’s project debuts!  We also have a great line up of returning designers that have created awesome projects that you’ll want to check out as well! Without further ado, here they are!
