Never mind the groundhog’s shadow or the year’s first robin sighting; the arrival of spring magazines in my mailbox is always my favorite harbinger of good things to come. Even if the sky is overcast and snow is still falling outside, the flowers, color, and freshness held within the next season’s glossies are always enough to help me power through the final days of winter. This winter has been especially brutal, so when our advance copy of Sweet Paul’s Spring ’15 edition arrived in the mail, I burrowed into it in near rapturous glee. As is typical with Mr. Paul Lowe’s beautiful quarterly, it did not disappoint. From delicious-looking recipes with spring’s best flavors to a wonderful Cakes-n-Cocktails celebration of the magazine’s fifth year, each page is filled with HELL-YES doses of color. (There’s even a little peek at one of my favorite upstate attractions: The Phoenicia Flea!) The issue hits newsstands Friday, but to help get y’all in the spring mood early, Paul was kind enough to share one of the glorious Easter egg DIYs from the upcoming issue. Continue after the jump for all of the tutorial! —Max
