A "HANDMADE" EASTER ~ Happy Easter to all!


There is nothing sweeter than a handmade gift.
When I was growing up my mother (and father) always made the majority of our gifts.
From the outfits we wore to the homemade treats.
It was always such a happy time.
I carried on that tradition with my children. 
When they were little I made their outfits and as many of their gifts as possible.
Now I have two little nieces that I like to fuss over.
These are some of my handmade pretties.

I bought two straw hats and two felt bags. 
I added vintage lace, ribbon and hand crocheted flowers.
I filled them with color books, crayons, flash cards, and sweet treats.
I found these cute polka dot treat bags. 
I loved the pastel colors.
Although pretty.....  they needed to be "dressed up".
I made hand punched paper lace bag toppers and tied them with pink and white lace ribbons.
I added Easter chick gift tags with lots of glitter.
I wanted to fill the bottoms with Easter grass..... but, I hate the "plastic" grass you buy at the store.
So....  I cut green crepe paper into 1/4" strips.  It makes great grass!
added a few colorful eggs filled with chocolate treats
you have a....

Rejoice in the LORD.
Happy EASTER to All!
