Happy Easter! :)

Hi everyone :) 

This year I decided to make the kids Easter Baskets :) 

Not an easy task I discovered as I did them both free-hand - with no pattern or die cutting machine :) 

I used lots of different Nikki Sivils collections on these :) 

Ohhhh and PS ... there is a FUNNY story at the end of this post about these baskets :) 

I think it would be obvious ... but in case it isn't ... Brookie's is on the left and Adam's is on the right :) 














And here is the story :) 

I posted this on Facebook ... but in case you missed it ... 

I wrote this .... 

"I made Brookie and Adam's Easter baskets this year ... and she says, "You didn't put a lot of details on these, but I really like them both!" ...lol...from the mouth of babes" 

 
LOL!! I was laughing so hard when she said this!! I love that she notices these type of things :)  Even though there isn't a lot of details ... oy! If she only knew HOW LONG it took me to make these baskets totally free hand!! LOL!!

I love my baby girl :)

PS ... my work is having a "Earth Day Contest"  -- they want anyone who wants to play along to make a USEFUL PROJECT out of RECYCLED ITEMS ... ummmmmm if you have been following me for awhile ... I think you know that I am going to enter!!!  I can't THROW anything away without thinking first what I can make with it! LOL!! Wish me luck ... and you know I will share with you what I create :) 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
