Easter fun

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter we've been very busy here the best part of Good Friday and bank holiday Monday were spent working on the garden digging up the old path and building a vegetable plot poor Steven has not stopped! Every spare bit of time we have is spent trying to finish what we have started at least we'll be able to enjoy our efforts this summer. We did take a break on Easter Sunday and had a nice day spent with family.

These baskets are what I did with the children from playgroup this one is Emilys they made the baskets and then decorated a cupcake to take home.

Heres Emilys Easter bonnet she really did do most of it herself apart from the daffs I just stuck on lots of doubled up sellotape and let her with help from Elliot stick on what they wanted from the bag of Easter bits.
As you can see she really enjoyed wearing it.
These are Emilys latest colouring in by numbers pictures she's got through a whole book of pictures in one week I just had to put them on here I'm really impressed with how shes coming on. I'll have to look out for another book for her.

Easter Sunday after dinner we had a egg hunt around the house, lots excitement and chocolate was eaten.

I got some more egg decorations this year so I'm quite pleased with how my Easter tree looks.
This cute little bunny was 99p from the charity shop.

Can't believe that the end of term break is nearly over it seems to have flown by so going to make the most of the last few days we have . Hope you enjoy whats left of it if your children are off.

Lucky me!

It was a beautiful sunny day in Derbyshire yesterday and my day just got better when the postman knocked at my door with my heart swap goodies from Molly Cupcakes who also organised the heart swap. Just look at all this Miss Cupcakes has spoilt me rotten with not 6 but 13 beautifully wrapped parcels well I could barely contain my excitement!!!!

There was lots of oohing and awing going on believe me whilst opening this lot! Here's what I got a handmade pincushion you can't see in the photo it has the teenyest tiniest cutest buttons pinned loose on that you ever did see! I love the heart tumbler can't wait to start using that! A vintage cotton reel with heart ribbon and card with a lovely message inside from Catherine.
Look at this lot, by this time I was really excited everything is just so pretty can't wait to start putting things here and there around the house..... Above is a handmade picture with painted frame. A Mollycupcakes wooden spoon which I LOVE! It had the recipe for the heart dessert wrapped around it and a lovely heart card which I will be keeping for one self far too nice to giveaway me thinks!

And there's more!!!!! I was dancing a little jig at this point! A painted polka dot heart photo frame, a painted peg for notes will be very handy that! Heart stickers and heart cinnamon flavoured biscuits baked by Catherine decorated with hundred and thousands which taste yummy!

No that's not it! Look at these all handmade, a hanging heart, a heart brooch and two wooden heart gift tags is there no end to this girls talents?!!

Everything is sooooooo gorgeous it's like you know me just the sort of thing I love THANK YOU SO MUCH Catherine I really appreciate all the love and effort you put into making my swap and everything will be treasured and much loved. I really hope you liked mine!

And also thank you for organising this heart swap I think you've done a superb job of it all and I've really enjoyed taking part this being the first swap I've done! Looking forward to seeing everyone elses swaps!
