A Crafty Soiree #134

Hi Friends!  I had such a great time hopping around to see all the Easter projects last week!  A lot of us seem to have bunnies, baskets, and peeps on the brain.  It was so inspiring to see how many different ways you all manage to turn iconic symbols into delightful projects, so unique and creative!
At Little Treasures, Maya has been crocheting up the sweetest itty bitty baskets, they look great as egg holders and on an Easter tree. 
These days I am all about EASY and these washi tape Easter eggs from Your Homebased Mom are a quick way use, what is probably everyone's favorite new crafting supply, and fancy up inexpensive plastic eggs.  So many of us have at least a roll or two...or twenty on hand!  This would also be a good project for the kids to help with, without the mess of dyes.
This frame gives an unexpected twist and change from the normal wreath shape and I like how the eggs are incorporated into the design of this front door decoration at A Creative Princess.  The eggs were part of a garland last year, so it's also a good example of how you can take what you've already got on hand and switch things up for a completely different look.
I have the same problem that Meghan does from Make Something Daily.  My kiddo loves egg hunts and goes to a few year each year, ending up with way too much candy!  She's got a great idea for including puzzle pieces into eggs so that the kids can work on a cooperative puzzle afterward.  What makes hers really unique is she actually paints the puzzle!  I love her cute pictures!
I picked our last feature because Christine from I Dig Pinterest and I Did it Too, made these as examples for a ladies crafting night she recently hosted.  Her guests also added a layer of decoupaged patterned paper under their vinyl letters, cute!  This is a fun project for a group, that everyone can be successful at.

I have so much fun virtually crafting with each of you every week, and it was nice to hear how some of you are taking your mad crafty skills and converting other to our shared obsession!  Have you hosted a crafting session with your friends?  I'd love to hear what projects have worked for you!

Before we get to the features, don't forget to enter the Secret Recipe for Super Mom ebook giveaway from last week!  You still have one more day!  I've also got a giveaway from Shutterfly that's ending soon.  Don't miss your chance to win one of these awesome prizes!
