Hi!! Remember me??? Yeah, I know! I know! It’s been a while! I do however have legitimate excuses for the absence in blogland! My Lara has been quite ill and was in hospital for a week. We are also in the process of selling our house and buying another one! Crazy chaotic hectic life!! Just imagine how much crap err I mean stuff that a family of 6 can accumulate!! We’ve been madly de-cluttering and getting ourselves sorted. I had an immaculate craft room (Megan, it’s true!!) but the kids and I have been crafting away making some Easter Baskets. I had misplaced my camera so I couldn’t take pictures of the room, but we’ve another open home next weekend so when it’s all beautiful again, i’ll take some photos and show you what i’m leaving (sob sob).
Ok, so the baskets! Sorry I get a little chatty when i’ve been away from you for a while! So without further ado, the plethora of baskets we’ve been making!
First up the little mini baskets for some children we’ll be seeing at a bbq on Easter Monday. They are just made from a 6×6″ piece of card stock. I’ve also added a little insert with a hole punched out so they don’t wobble about in there!
Then the basket I’ll be giving my next door neighbours. Claire doesn’t eat chocolate (I know! A sin!) but David does. So there are some jubes for Claire and some Chocolate for David!
I’ve used the new Window Sheets from SU! to make the base of the box. You can get them in the NEW MINI CATALOGUE!
The next two baskets are for the children next door.
And these little beauties, well! They are the fantastic creations of three of my munchkins!! We have from left to right: Alexandra, Katelin & Thomas. All a little different, just like the kids themselves.
And below are all the baskets on the end of my table! I’ve actually still got a couple more to make but after this lot should find the next couple a doddle to whip up!
All of the Designer series papers used in the above baskets are retired. I’m trying very hard to use up some of my stash. It’s actually a bit embarrassing how much stuff I really do have!
I hope that you have a happy & safe Easter break!
Until next time,
