For some winter is over when the snow is gone. For me, it’s when I see the daffodils popping up. I’m like a kid when I see the little green tips emerging. Time to start celebrating, then the moment comes and they are in bloom- I’m in pure bliss. Then I’m off to get the scissors, find the vases and fill the studio and house with delicious smelling daffodils. I could fill every room and sometimes I do. Don’t ask me how many daffodils I have…..way too many to count. Besides, is there such a thing as too many daffodils; I think not. Even growing up I remember cutting baskets of daffodils at my house. Daffodils don’t last long so when the blossoms are done I cut and dry them. Once completely dried, I grind the petals and combine them with a transparent polymer/resin. I roll it into thin sheets and make each pen one at a time. Each individual pen is different; you can actually see the crushed daffodil petals. The unique texture and color comes directly from the blossoms. The pen uses a standard cross refill, easy how to instructions and a story card are included.
