Happy Wednesday !! :) I have been having fun working on Easter stuff this week and will be listing those items on my Etsy and Ebay in a few days. I am working on a few favorites from last year, as well as some new designs. I will give you all a heads up when I list them. :)
These sweet eggs are made from REAL eggs and is an original design of mine. It came out of a love for the old sugared eggs that we recieved as children. I did a tutorial last year on how to make REAL sugar Easter eggs, you can go HERE to see it. I sold over a hundred of these faux ones last year and was almost sick from blowing out all of the raw egg !! lol !!! This year I have done a few at a time so that it wouldn't be so overwhelming. :) Aren't they sweet ?????I even put a few on boxes. I LOVE these. :) Easter has the BEST colors I think. So Happy and light. My home is decorated in soft Easterly colors year round. I am a lighthearted person for the most part and love light, soft, sweet colors. :)
I also am making a few more of my Nesting Baskets. These are one of my favorite designs ever !! I Love Robin's egg blue, and have touches of it throughout the house.
More Cross cookies, and other sweet treats.
And I will be listing a few of my Sweet Bake Shoppe Girls.
This one is "Marie, Queen of the Roses"Look at her sweet scalloped dress.
Roses on her crown, and pretty glass glitter.
These are truly a labor of love. I have handmade their dresses, hairdo's, crowns and mini cakes. I think I just needed to justify time spent playing with dolls, lol !!! :)
I found this beauty last Saturday when we were out thrifting. Isn't it gorgeous ??? I think I will put it on Ebay this weekend for sale. I REALLY have too much stuff !! :)
And lastly, I thought I would share a craft project I did this week. I have been trying to recycle more and since my Hubby is a Chili-Oholic, I have lots of cans. So, I pasted a bit of Vintage wallpaper on them, added bows, a few jewelry trinkets and now they are handy storage catch-alls for my craft room. You could make them very elaborate, or very simple like mine. Also, you can spray paint them first if you want the insides colored. I kinda liked the silver, so I left them alone. I am working on my craft room this week, and hoping that my Hubby is up to painting it for me this weekend. :) I am doing the walls in a soft white. With Aqua and roses fabric curtains. I bought all of the fabric and paint six months ago, but you know how that goes right ? lol !! I seem to be losing more time as I age. :)
Well, That is all of my hump-day stuff :) I am feeling better this week can you tell ? :) lol !!! I hope that each of you are Happily excited and getting geared up for this most Wonderful of Holidays too. :) After all, He Arose on Easter , and with that , He gave us all Hope. Hope that what He said was truth, Hope that He is everlasting and His love for us is everlasting and Hope that we too can spend eternity with The One that loves us most. :) There is a lot of meaning in that word, H O P E, Now, who wouldn't be Joyous about that in these most uncertain times ?
