Today Candace and I were busy working on our projects for
our new online craft group
We are so excited and we hope you guys are too!
We think it's going to be soooo much fun
to not only do together but to see the twists
that everyone will do to personalize their projects!
The crafting begins March 7th~~~that's Monday folks!!!
So I've been a little busy making Easter baskets this week.
I teach classes here locally, so I'm always looking for a fun
project to make that is usually seasonal.
Well I've always wanted to make a sturdy
basket that would last throughout the years for my little girl.
A couple of years ago I made some of these up for a client
who wanted to follow the tradition her Mom had created
with wooden baskets she had hand painted for each of her kids.
I love traditions like that, keepsakes to hand down.
Here's my egg basket I created.
I thought it turned out pretty fun!
I had originally started with the bunny here,
I rubbed off the edges a bit and I totally loved it but I wanted a bit more color
even though the little cotton bunny tail just about had me....
I love modge podging paper onto stuff,
it makes everything seem so much brighter and fun!
Do you guys have "heirloom" baskets or other fun Easter traditions?
