Easter Bunny Hugs And Kisses
That cute little bunny has hopped all day,
delivering baskets for the holiday.
His paws are so tired and his nose how it itches,
He left you something special to fulfill all your wishes-
Lots of cute little Easter bunny hugs and kisses.

Dyeing for a new way to decorate Easter eggs? Here's a recipe for fun that's hard to beat: With basic crafts supplies -- crepe paper, pipe cleaners, felt, yarn, thread, and glue -- kids can make cows, pigs, and lots of other eggs-traordinary creations from plain white eggs. Quail eggs (look for them at specialty grocers) are the right size for smaller animals (paint works better than dye to color their spotted shells). And brown eggs are a natural choice for creatures with dark fur or feathers.
Basic Egg Preparation
Blowing: Emptying eggs lets you save your creations. An adult should pierce egg at both ends with a utility knife, widening one hole a bit. Poke a straightened paper clip through wide hole; stir yolk. Place ear syringe in smaller hole; squeeze. Contents will pour out. (Wash hands well.)
Dyeing: It's easy to make dye: Cover the work area with paper towels. In a jar, mix 1 teaspoon vinegar, 20 drops food coloring, and 1 cup warm water. Submerge the egg (keep it down with a paper cup containing water). Soak 5 minutes for light colors and 10 minutes for darker shades. Remove the egg with tongs. A homemade rack of pins and foam board makes for even drying and quick cleanup.
Decorating: Dye or paint should be fully dry before beginning. Affix features with white glue (on crepe paper, use tiny dots of glue); let dry at least 20 minutes. Glue on feet or legs first so egg will stand. For ears and combs, dab glue on edge of felt or crepe paper, affix piece, let dry, then fold up. Add small details like eyes with tempera paint or a marker.
Ladybugs who lunch don painted-on faces and construction-paper attire (dots are made using a hole punch). Each pair of legs is one piece of yarn glued underneath; antennae are embroidery floss dipped in glue and dried to stiffen.
Why is this bunny so chubby? From munching crepe paper-topped carrots! He's a bit harebrained but has fine felt ears, teeth, and feet (a hole cut in the center of his feet keeps his body standing up). Twitching a pom-pom nose and embroidery-floss whiskers, he finishes his snack. All these and more are on MarthaStewart.com... If I was only this creative!
This is a shout out to all my girls down in Texas!!! Whoot Whoot! I don't know what it is (or maybe I do), but they love my signs =) About every other day I have an order from Texas. LOVE IT! Ladies, if you have a favorite shop that you would like to see my items in...send me their address. I would love to send them something!

Spring Break for the kids! We shipped them off to visit Grandma & Auntie for the week. After a few days of doing our own thing... my husband wanted to go get our kids. We took a quick trip back to Spokane and while we were there we went to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Visited some of our old shops~ I use to sell out of =) Wiggett's Marketplace looked as great as ever... checking out all of my old friend's booths. Foxglove Antiques which is owned by Jewell Schrang is located in Wiggett's. She is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. I could just look at all her goodies all day long! Her and her friend Ann have a whole Paris thing going on that I just love. Jewell and I would buy off of each other whenever we needed something for one of our displays.. Hint~ the red table was mine at one time =)
Well, I couldn't leave Wiggett's without spending some money on a few things! I love visiting Coeur d'Alene whenever we are home.
