11 Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

Easter is one of my favorite holidays because it's a celebration of life. Spring flowers poke their way out of their underground slumber and leafy buds start to emerge from the trees.

Eggs are the symbol of life and today I'm sharing 11 Easter egg decorating ideas to inspire … [Read more...]

Create a Quick Easter Mantel

When I decorate for the holidays, I tend to over-think things. In an effort to make holiday decor perfect, it seems like I end up over-doing and before you know it I have an unattractive mess on my hands. That's when I start editing and editing and undoing a lot of the work I've just done. For Easter, I decided not to think too much and just go with my gut instinct ... which led to lots of flowers for a quick Easter mantel. When I think of … [Read more...]

How to Make Speckled Eggs

Since the kids are grown and have all flown the coop, we no longer dye eggs for Easter. I do love the speckled eggs you get at home decor stores, but sometimes they can be ridiculously expensive. A small bag can be $10 or more and I just can't see paying that price for something that's gonna be out on display for a week or two. So I decided to make my own speckled eggs for a fraction of the cost. The best part of making your own speckled eggs is … [Read more...]

Sweet and Simple Easter Table Setting

I'm sitting here thinking of Easter as it's blowing snow outside. Every few years we get an April snow and I guess this is the year we're blessed with one last flurry of the white stuff. It promises to be in the 60's later this week so the snow will be gone soon, thankfully. I'm also sitting here thinking of how quickly Easter approached this year, with all its pastel beauty. I love the colors of Easter and sprinkled them across my Easter table … [Read more...]

My Passion for Book Page Crafts

Lately I'm becoming more and more drawn to anything made with book pages! Within minutes the words on a book's page take you to another place and time. The musty smell of an old book with an elegant cover is a sensory pleasure I'll always treasure. And when you're done with a book, you can transform it into a work of art. I've been collecting books for projects around the house and thanks to Pinterest, I'm finding an unending supply of crafts to … [Read more...]
