A Tisket, A Tasket.....

After being inspired by Diane of Saturday Finds and others who have used peat pots in their crafting, I decided to give it a try. It was so fun to make these cute little Easter baskets, especially since I found matching eggs and chicks at HL. I added satin ribbon and paper flowers from my stash. When I was almost done, I found the framed Easter images I made in an online class by Lisa Pace. They were just what I wanted to finish the baskets.

 

 
I've taken the day off from work to give my injured wrist a rest, but there are a lot of things I want to get done. I want to straighten my craft room, get out the Spring/Easter stuff, buy groceries....so I had better get started.

Oh, last night my husband and I just happened upon a pbs show about the folk singers of the 50's and 60's. We both had older sisters who turned us on to this great music when we kids. It brought back such good memories. I'm thinking I'll be buying some songs today!
