Tuesday - Handmade Easter

Happy Tuesday!

I put my little Leprechaun pin away until next year. He is so cute.

Now we are on to Easter items!

I had someone buy a lot of items from my ArtFire shop to make up their kids Easter baskets.

Her little girls will have tea party napkins and her son will have a turtle bath mitt, along with many other items.

When I look at the Easter baskets Walmart sells, they are junt junk! Stuffed with newspaper and a little Easter grass. The cheapest toys they could find and then they are shipped to America to be sold.

This year, why not make up your kids Easter baskets! Give them things they can use, that will last. Sure, buy some toys to put in them and the candy and a stuffed animal, but buy "handmade" items too.

You could even make the basket itself!


Here's some items from one of my shops.
