Easter Treats

Happy Hump Day! How are all of you doing? Me? Oh, so glad you asked! Let's see if YOU'RE glad you asked...better yet; glad I'm controlling this conversation - I have a captive audience, if you didn't just click out. HA!

We leave today for vacation - seriously, have you ever noticed how much work it is to get ready to GO on vacation? Sheesh - I'm tired and we haven't left the house!! Packing for myself and 3 kids (thank goodness DH can handle himself) is torture...particularly when you have a pre-tweener. LOL

I've had these treats done since Sunday night, but I've had other orders that had to be done before we left, so I finished those up last night and am finally getting a chance to post these. Did I mention when I entered my craft room today I saw our youngest daughter had made a beautiful treat for me and glued it to my desk with my E*X*T*R*A sticky glue??? Nice!!!

Then I find embossing powder scattered here and there, but hey, the sign is great. THEN I begin using my copic markers on a card I'm doing and I uncap my colorless blending copic and the majority of the brush end is now BLUE...so much for colorless! Thank goodness, I was able to work the blue out...but man, oh man. Due to their extra creativity, we've set some limits in my craft room - we had limits, but I guess they decided an extra special treat (and a tiny bit of exploring) would be a nice thing for mom...NOT!!!

OK, seriously, I'm done whining; on to some fun pictures!! The little criss-cross treat basket is 2 inches wide and holds 3 Reese's Peanut Butter eggs - ooooo, YUMMY! The other treat opens up to a little window which shows 1 Reese's Peanut Butter egg peeking through.

The criss-cross basket is a tutorial from Paper Smiles, she does outstanding work; be sure to visit her blog and leave her some love.

The other item is a Peek-A-Boo treat by Beate at Splitcoaststampers; check it out too if you're looking for a neat little treat.

Isn't that little chick adorable? She's from Melanie Muenchinger's "Just So Hoppy" set; colored with Copics. I used the black Spica Glitter Pen for her lashes and her eyes; she's extra sparkly!

OK, on to my next post before I sign off for a week or so. Have a superb week and may your Easter be a special blessing to you and your loved ones.

Thanks for peeking in - you KNOW you're one of my favorite peeps!!! ~M.



  1. Soooo cute! Great job on the basket and the treat box....omg, that little chick is darling!! Glad you were able to use the CC basket design. I have 21 on my workbench I need finish up tonight. I know what you mean about vacation...getting ready to go can be exhausting! Hope you have a great time. BTW, your blog is awesome...I'll be back to visit = ) !!!

  2. I love the little chicks. Too cute! The bunny is cute too! Hope you have a "Hoppy" Easter and a great mini vaca. You should check out Lambert's. It's on the highway between Springfield and Branson. They were on food network and we went there - FABULOUS! My kids loved the rolls the best!


  3. Ooooh, you HAVE been busy! Yes, I appreciate how incredibly stressful it is to get away on holiday... and always, at the 11th hour, I will remember to check if DH has organised someone to have to dog for us. NO. Never. Hmm. That's a great way to start a holiday. NOT!! Anyway - always, once we all get there and unpack, it's just so much fun. Until we get home again, and everyone is tired, and doesn't want to unpack the car. Holidays. Can't beat 'em.
    You have a fantastic one though - it really IS worthwhile.
    Take care
