A Sneak Peek Into Next Week...

Well, I'm jus' givin' you a lil' look into what I will be doing over the weekend. Yes, it's salt dough time again. These are some pics from last year - but this year I'm gonna be adding some carrots and lil' yellow chicks (if I can get them to shape up right that is). And I also think I'll go a lil' non-traditional and maybe do some bright colored eggs - like red and bright yellow, turquoise blue and hot pink - what do you think?



A simple Easter tree...
-branches from a tree - spray painted a pretty color
-old coffee can painted to your liking
-some sand
and you are good to go.



And when I show you my simple "how-to" with the ornaments - I'll let you join in the fun because I'm gonna give a bag full away.

So be sure and hop back in on Monday! (hopefully - it's gonna be 70 this weekend - so it'll be hard for me to stay in and work!!)

Thank you all so much for all the kind comments this week - I've had lots of fun sharing with you! Now, be gettin' your Easter tree ready because somebody is gonna win a lil' basket full of goodies!

See Ya Monday!
Cathy
