~Welcome Spring & Sad News~

Good morning and happy Friday! :)

I shared this project recently on the Buttons Galore & More blog
and wanted to share it with you. The BGM blog has full instructions.
I had alot of fun making this with my Clear Scraps acrylic-
Tally Scrapper April Kit, Silhouette Cameo, and
some of the Samantha Walker SVG files.
I love making little wall hangings for the season.
I usually end up making 3 or 4.
I am so ready for spring. Bring on the garden!

On a sad note, night before last we lost every chicken we had.
3 years of work and love down the drain, a coyote busted into the pen
and dragged out over 20 chickens including the new baby chicks.
Only one chicken survived the ordeal.
It was a heart wrenching morning for us all as a family.
I understand it is life on the farm but it was painful nonetheless.

We have 4 babies in the shed that were untouched...they were too
young to put out. Thanks goodness for that but still...heart breaking news.

Happy Friday my friends, see you tomorrow~

It is sad, but like you said a part of farm life. Being surrounded by farms where I am, and lot of open field, we have lot of coyotes. I have seen and heard them. Pretty project.

So sorry to read about your chickens- it is so hard to accept.I know when a neighbors dog came and did this to all of ours, it was so hard to explain to my children.
Sending you a big hug

So sorry--a coyote killed our baby goat last year and we have had raccoons attack and kill our chickens--it is heartbreaking.
