Thanks to all the partygoers!! There are so many many wonderful ideas. Can I tell you it is excruciatingly hard to pick out features for this party because EVERYONE needs to be featured. I know how much thought (and work) goes into each blog post! We try to pin several links because every link deserves some love. Do you agree? Let's pin together!! Pin the person ahead of you in the party.
It's Easter basket-making time! My favorite time. I love making Easter baskets but I wanted to make some "baskets" that are a bit different. My granddaughter is 12 and she is so into everything Pinterest and DIY and so I had these old wooden drawers which I picked up last summer and thought they might work out very well for what I wanted. Believe it or not I actually took old drawers from broken bureaus on the side of the road. I did a blog post on Ways to Repurpose Old Drawers but this is the first time I actually DID something with one.
Here is the BEFORE picture of the drawer. It was taken from a dark pine bureau and had these small drawers on the top. I painted it white and then distressed it a little. I don't like things very distressed although I know it is quite popular. I like things lightly distressed.
A little bit of paint goes a long way to improve the looks of anything, don't you think?
Isn't he cute? Here's a ceramic bunny I take out each year.
I filled it with some cute things like a tiny bunny and a tissue paper flower. I'll have to add an ICard to this basket, too. :)
Her room is blue so I know she'll love the tissue paper flower. I did a post on those last week called How to Create Your Own Tissue Paper Wall Art and I now have lots and lots of all different colors of tissue paper now. Now I have tissue paper to wrap gifts in, too!
This was a lot more fun and creative to do than just fill an Easter basket. What do you think?
Happy Spring, everyone!!!
