Welcome!


I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Little Easter Baskets

Hi All! Hope everyone is doing well. There was a post about a week ago on the Circle Blog where the designer had a little chocolate bunny in a cupcake wrapper at each place setting. I thought that was so cute, I decided to make something like that. Instead of using a cupcake wrapper, I cut the basket from Easter -seasonal. I cut it at 6". I then used my gypsy and sized the pointed doily from the cart so it would fit on the front of the basket. It's about .89". I then cut the bunny and its layer at 1.8"
The Handle has a flower and leaves as part of it, but there is no layer to it, so I created one. I used Mother's Day - seasonal cart and cut the flower on the 5th button. I used my Gypsy to hide the center of the flower and then I cut it 2.06". I had sized it up to fit over the flower on the handle. I then cut it in white and again in a green. I hand-trimmed the flower and leaves apart and glued them onto the handle. The tiny flower in the center is from a mini punch I have.


I bought Little chocolate bunnies to put in the baskets as well as the colored egg that my daughter's made for everyone.

I hope everyone has a Great Easter!
(and maybe some Crafty time too!)
