Easter Traditions

Hi, everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful Easter weekend! I would like to share a part of mine with you.

Several years ago, we started a tradition of a family weekend at the farm on Easter. The yard would have motorhomes and we'd pull out the sleeping bags and ALWAYS hope for nice weather. We would line up two or three long tables in the garage so that we could all be together. A couple of times we had to add some extra heaters, but no one complained. Although some of the faces have changed (well, guess all if you count ageing!), and some of the faces are missed, we still continue the tradition.

Most of us would arrive on Friday night and start the visit. Saturday morning brought breakfast for those up and wanting to enjoy it, then time to cover the tables with newspaper for the Easter Egg coloring. Young and young-at-heart joined in with some just offering advise and ideas. Then the wonderfully decorated eggs would be put aside to dry and wait for hiding/hunting on Sunday morning. Next came a fun lunch with more visiting.

THEN it was time for the really fun stuff. :) STAMPING! When my Aunt could join us, her and I would basically bring our craft room and it was so worth it. We would share the fun we had created and the fun we had purchased through out the year and start another year of fun projects. Of course, a lot of our supplies are Stampin' Up (okay, most), so we had fun sharing new ideas on how to use them.

This past weekend was no exception to the fun. There were new faces and faces we missed so much, but a lot of fun was had, too. Here is just a small part of my weekend:

Our crafting bunch:




The Enjoy the Little Things Project Kit on page 33 of the Occasions catalog was used to make the following projects, with more supplies to create a lot more!





All we had to do was add our own adhesive, stamps, ink, and a few extra embellishments, if we wanted! We also used our cardstock for the card bases as this kit is actually for a home d├ęcor piece. We had a new stamper and there was a lot of laughing and just plain fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget you can still purchase this kit and other supplies by clicking on the ONLINE SHOPPING in the right hand column. And I would really appreciate it if you would list my name as your demonstrator when ordering UNLESS you already have one!

Have a GREAT day!
