Spring! Bunnies! Chicks! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

It's Spring!!

I’m so ready, we’ve had a cold and unusually wet winter here.
Yes, when I say cold I mean in the 50s, but still.

But, cold outside means staying home and getting some crafting done!

I love making these exploding boxes,
really a scrapbook in a box!
When you lift the lid off, the sides fall open to reveal the pics inside!
They're such great gifts, I've given them with the pics already pasted inside,
and also with the insides empty for the giftee to paste in.
My BFF Brenda's daughter recently had a baby girl, Emma,
and I made this box for  her:

Hope she likes it! :)

Altered egg cartons are so much fun for Easter!
I made a few last year,
and again this year for a swap I was in.
I decided to go with a garden theme:

I used burlap, moss, a minature garden glove, a bit of fencing,
paper flowers and butterflies, crepe paper,
and a small clay pot that I painted white and then sanded down.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside :(
I had so much fun making this!

And I am in a Fairy/Children Tag Swap
hosted by JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly.

I've also been making some Easter Whimsies and Collage Sheets
for my Etsy shop:

Hop on over and take a peek!  :)
Also want to leave you with some freebies for your Easter crafting:

First of all, these are adorable vintage cards and thank you for the share.

The tags are terrific. What a fun swap!

I wonder if we're doing the same egg carton swap? I have two names (neither are you!) I wish I was on the receiving end of yours --it's beautiful! This is my first swap like that and I'm having a huge ton of fun with it!
