  1. These look so great! Love the canvas!

  2. Very pretty. Love the springy feel of such a cool project.

  3. Such a great idea and just wonderful colors used onhere, looks really gorgeous.
    We have lots of traditions for Easter as well as the other holidays here, and all my grandkids will certainly make sure,. we don´t forget any of them ha ha ha ha ha. We always decorate our house the week before EAster and they loves to come and help, so they can make sure, we get all in their right places, but we alspo always make a couple of new things every year too.

  4. When my boys and nieces and nephews were younger we always had an egg hunt. We filled plastic eggs with candy and numbers, each number co-insided with a "treat" - usually something from the dollar store or some change. One lucky person would get a $2.00 bill! Now we continue that tradition with my great nieces and nephews!

  5. I decorate my table, but don't usually make anything. This year you have inspired me to do so...

  6. My family goes out to brunch for Easter, and then comes to my house to play games. I'm thinking that I'm going to make a cute centerpiece this year with ribbons and paper.

  7. This year I'm going to Hawaii for Easter, but usually I go out with my family. We pig out, and then don't eat for the rest of the day.

  8. Gorgeous flowers!! What a cute idea!

    Since our kids are grown, we don't do much for Easter aymore...but we still make deviled eggs!!

  9. I usually give my husband a surprise of some kind of chocolates on Easter, and we also celebrate the birthday of the Buddha with food, tea (including cleaning the buddha statues with tea to get all the dust out :)) and happy rememberances of our friends and family who have passed on. It's a fun time of year!

  10. Those look exactly like the ones I made last weekend except I used baby wipes and a heat gun. I went crazy and made up about 30 of them--all in a few different colors and then embellished them with bling in the middle. Cute though!

  11. Great flowers. I don't make things to decorate inside the house, but I do make spring scrapbooking pages.

  12. Fabulous! Love the colors!

  13. Leslie, look forward to seeing you in Kitchener! Can hardly wait, my first event ever... And that looks like an awesome prize.

  14. What gorgeous flowers making up these napkin rings!
    I usually try to do some Easter crafts with my two young nieces.

  15. Great napkin holder idea!
    After church, my Granddaughter and I color eggs and I do a special Easter Egg Hunt for her. After her egg hunt we have to practice her egg hunting skills over and over until one of us says "I need a snack and something to drink". Dinner is always prepared ahead of time, no cooking on Easter, it is a help yourself day.
    When I prepare a recipe that I have prepared many times, I don't measure things, so I can't give you a deviled egg recipe. I just use egg yolks (about twice as many as I have eggs), Miracle Whip, a little spicy brown mustard, some pickle relish, S&P, and a good dose of paprika on top. My deviled egg taker from Tupperware is over 20 years old. Happy Spring. For many of us, Easter is a time for praise and counting our blessings for our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the great opportunity he gave us.

  16. wow you ladies are always so creative...I always learn great new techniques from this it.

  17. The floral sachet and floral tote are both wonderful projects. Well done ladies!
    Not sure yet what I'll make for Easter -- hopefully some cards!

  18. I don't do to much anymore. My boys are all grown up. I do a little bit of decorating inside and outside my home. If I ever get some grandkids I will do lots !! I love your canvas flowers.
