Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love everything that goes along with the holiday. I like wearing fancy clothes, going to church and singing, creating silly gifts for Easter baskets, and making and eating delicious food. We also always take a yearly family photo together, which is a lot of fun, too! Bo will hopefully not be screaming in the photo this year. 🙂
We usually visit my parent’s house for Easter, which can be a lot of fun because there is often quite a large crowd there!
The past couple of years, I haven’t been up to my crafty self to create fun things for Easter. Two years ago, I think we were considering moving around that time, which prevented me from breaking out the craft supplies. Then last year, Bo was just a tiny baby, so I was quite busy just figuring out how to feed her!
This year, I feel like we are finally ready to celebrate the holiday like I want to.
So far, Monkey and I have 4 projects in the works. Our projects will include:
Decorated coffee bags
I’m not quite sure how to do the coaster thing. I really want to transfer an image to a tile, maybe, but I need to research more on the best way to do that. The vanilla was actually supposed to be in the stockings at Christmas, but I forgot to bring the bottles when we went down to visit our families.
We will share the results of our projects as we go through them! All of these should be pretty easy, so don’t think we have super-crafty ambitions or crazy-awesome crafting talents. Once you see the pictures, you will know. 🙂
I particularly wanted to focus on Easter gifts for adults this year, because we have more adults than anything in the family now- and some don’t even like candy (shocking, I know). That means we have to be a little more creative about what to put in the baskets.
Do you have any fun projects for Easter lined up?
