the one about eggs
Savannah is up on the calendar this weekend :) I wish it were a more religious photo today, but that's all I've got. We always make sure our kids know the true meaning of Easter (and Christmas). That it's not all about the candy. This year we colored the eggs after church instead of the day before, since we don't let the EB hide the real eggs the night before anyway. I liked the change.
Last night after baths, Amelia and Savannah got their nails done in light pink, and Amelia slept with a head full of rollers.
I got this from a friend about ten years ago and we do it every year. Its such a cool idea.
I just remembered I had all the materials scanned, or I would have posted it sooner. Each photo can be enlarged for better viewing. Each of the 11 items in the scan are put into 11 different plastic Easter eggs, each with its corresponding number written in marker on the outside. The twelfth egg is left empty, to represent the empty tomb. Follow the instructions of the pages above.

The one about the Beautiful Scraps
Fresh macaroons, pink berries, blue bird songs, brides, and cupcake sprinkles....These newest additions to my shop have been in the works for a month now.
I get creative goosebumps looking at all the goodies I have amassed and assembled together. They are like works of art---small, wrapped works of art on a tag!
I have just a few of each set, so get them while you can. :)
Oh....I got tired of trying to find real vintage millinery flowers...the beautifully imperfect ones that are faded, maybe a little ragged, and slightly smashed......so I made some of my own! They are included on most of my Beautiful Scraps sets.

the one about this and that
here's whats been going on:
Amelia turned five and we took her to Build-a-Bear. She picked out an orange cat just like Savannah's.
She also got a bike, which she LOVES.
I am a guest artist for Teresa on her Bellatoria e-zine! My project was up today. Can't really show my project here, (wish i could!) you'll have to sub to her e-zine to see all that's been going on. I have had a peek and you won't be disappointed! Teresa is full of amazing projects and ideas. whew!
Always working on the Etsy shop. I know it doesn't always look like it---wish there were more hours in a day! I have been shopping and making and thinking and hope to get more new things listed soon!
I got a present in the mail from Kim a few weeks ago! (has it been that long??) fun stuff just out of the blue! She's the best :) I've already used about half of the ledger papers!
That's all for now! :)

The one about Winter's End
Around here it thinks it wants to be warm, but then goes back to the tired cold snow flurries that don't stick and blustery wind. But you can tell spring is on its way!
I have just one more Winter Whites Collection of artistic goodies for sale. This will be the last one as winter is winding down.
