Easter Wrap-up!

The Easter party at school is over and due to the 94 degree weather here in PA, the chocolate is melted.  I wasn't even thinking about it, but I left it out in the kitchen and being so crying that their crosses were puddles of creamy chocolate.  What a mess! 

I thought I'd show some family pictures of the kiddos. 

I'm so awful, but I forgot that to take pictures of Garnet on Easter day!  So, I included some from his Easter party.  I found this link with a cute daffodil project.  They turned out really cute.

Miss Rhea's Easter Basket Swap Unveiling - Happy Easter!

Yippee!  My first swap is officially done and today is the big unveiling day!  My swap partners were Taylor from MaryJanes and Galoshes and Jeannie from Eye Craft.  I have to say that I am totally in love with everything I received.  I really had wonderful swap partners!  Check out all the other swappers at Miss Rhea's.

First from Taylor~

I love all the taffy colors and sweet pastel ruffles!  Soft aqua, blue, sweet pink.  Love, Love.

The springtime sentiments on the bottom of this little cup is so nice.  A nice breath of spring air!  The wand has been embellished with aqua glitter and has adorable inserts.  The one shown says, "Make it pretty."  It is pretty!

Coordinating spring wrapped candle.

A handmade ribbon rose.  Perfect for hair or anywhere a little pretty is needed.  I believe she has the tutorial on her blog.

Chocolate, taffy colored bunny and glitter clad wand.  Is there anything better?

~Second, but not least....Jeannie.~

I LOVE the sweet cream thick ruffles.  This pretty beauty screams feminine!  The whole kit and caboodle! 

On the top is a Dept. 56 bunny pin with a glassy tinsel neckline.  Directly above is the sweetest little girl ever.  She is hopping all around!  I think this is so stinkin' cute!

I love this little fairy wand.  I will proudly display this year after year.  Above are some yummy embellishments.  I hate to use them because they are so dear.

Any guesses as to what it says?

~What I sent to Taylor and Jeannie~


Happy Easter to all!
{rejoice, again i say rejoice}
