In our region, we are told that if the month of March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. This prophesy tells us that the opposite is also true. Today is March 2nd. Yesterday, March arrived with cold, windy, rainy weather. This leads me to believe that March will leave us on a warm, sunny day.
March is fun for me at my little art shop. I enjoy making items with a theme. March has celebrations. Folks certainly enjoy sporting green colors for Saint Patrick’s Day events.
My Saint Pat’s jewelry features shamrocks amidst a variety of pretty green beads. There is also an abundance of lovely green jewelry that that looks great year round. My fun comes in the making of these creations. These are one of a kind originals. My customers will not see themselves coming and going. For each special occasion, I also make a little something special for myself. I like to wear seasonal jewelry. I often forget that I am wearing my art until I get a compliment from the people I encounter. I guess I need to carry business cards when I go out, so that I can be a walking, talking ad. My Saint Patrick’s items are always available, however I will stop promoting these goodies after next week. This will give the post office plenty of time to get purchases where they need to be.
The remainder of March will focus on Easter in my shop. The Easter jewelry is whimsical and cheerful. The Easter animals are enjoyed by critter lovers during all seasons. I love return customers. Repeat customers mean that I am doing a good job. Last week, I sent this little Easter lamb set to a lovely return customer. We have grown to know each other via Instagram. I am happy that this sweet set has found a home with her. She notified me that she loves it. I offer more than jewelry during Easter season. There is a handmade dream catcher with Easter egg beads and a long Macaw feather. I have a similar one hanging in my home. I also offer my framed original abstract painting of the Easter Bunny. Rabbit lovers admire this one, especially during spring. The painting is another creation that is nice for all seasons. I will stop promoting Easter as we begin the last week of March.
Moving from the Lion days of March to the Lamb days of March keeps me aware of how much our seasons bring us. I feel grateful for these symbols of spring and I enjoy passing some of my joys along to others.
