Pre Easter Week!

Happy Tuesday!! 
It's pre-Easter week!! 
I started getting a few fun and cute things together for some Easter baskets this morning! 
I can't wait to give them!! Unfortunately I can't show them yet.
My mom always did, still does such sweet and thoughtful baskets for us! When my sis and I were little we would always wake up (a little extra) early to see what the Easter bunny had brought us! It was always so exciting!! Of course we would have some candy before breakfast and then usually get ready and go to church with grandma. Such sweet memories, that I cherish so much! 

This fun jar of hand stamped spoons and butter knives went into my booth this past Sunday, I hope they can find some happy families!! 

 I thought they would be so cute in a sticking out of a small plant in the kitchen window! 
Soon as our winter weather passes again, and warms up this week, I'm going to be stamping some more! 
CAUTION: 
These are addicting if you start!! :) I really had fun blinging them out with vintage jewelry pieces!


 And can you guess what I'm going to be doing with these??? 
Fun stuff is happening! te he....you'll have to wait!! 

Sending Easter hugs!!

Peter Rabbit Peat Pots!

Hi sweet friends, hoping you had a lovely weekend!!
 If you remember back a few posts ago, I was just starting to work on some peat pots well here they are finished! I gave one to Dorothy my swap partner and put one in my booth, and these two are with me still :) 




And here's a peak of what I sent to my sweet swap partner Dorothy!! 
Here's her sweet blog if you haven't visited yet! 
(these are actually the pictures she took, I only took a few before I sent it off and they didn't turn out very good, probably because I took them at night! lol)

 I had so much fun packaging everything up and making some frilly tissue paper! :) 


Happy new week to you!!

Spring Crafting

Hello there! Happy weekend!! 
I've been crafting up a storm and making lots of messes!!
  A little here on the table, some by the hot glue gun, oh and Holly don't forget craft supplies that are sitting on the ironing board! 

Such sweet little things to play with! 
I'm hoping to find some vintage Easter to craft with, maybe over the weekend?? :) 
 I painted a few of these pea pots and printed on tissue paper those cute little images!
Is it bad that I was so proud of myself that they came out!? I was pretty nervous printing on the tissue paper and was just hoping it didn't get all jammed up in my printer. And ta da.....it came out! 
 I googled images of "Peter Rabbit" and found these, I taped the white tissue paper to the back side of a piece of card stock very well and put it in the printer! 
Then I Modge Podged these right on! 
I'm almost done making them into little baskets now, I'll have to show you those next time!

And of course my Jerry has to be helping at all times 
these are all Jerry Approved!! :) 

Wishing you all a lovely and crafty weekend!! 
*Tomorrow is suppose to be nice (mid 50s and I think some sunshine!) 
Hoping to get outside and enjoy it!
Blessings,  Holly
