• You are looking at the Side of Fries 3D Pop-Up Box Card I made for a birthday card. This card is very colorful and is a lot of fun. It actually looks like a box of french fries that you would get from a fast food restaurant! For the box base I used red paper, with a blue layer going across the front of it. With a yellow layer on top of that. I also stamped "birthday wishes" in a label. That sits on top of the yellow layer. The french fries inside the box are a light yellow color. That I inked around with a light brown ink. The fries are also 3D that stand upright in the fry box.

    Maple Tapping On Leap Day

    We started maple tapping on Leap Day. I’ll take it as good luck sign! This sapping season is much earlier than usual for me thanks to the warm up we’re experiencing at the end of February. This made for perfect conditions to start sugaring. I usually don’t begin tapping until mid March. This year is a little different, which is fine by me. Early tapping helps to keep the collected and stored sap cooler so it lasts longer. There’s lots of snow still on the ground which I can use it to insulate my sap buckets and keep them cold. It’s very exciting when it’s time to tap the trees…
