Valentine's Day and Easter Crafts

2 Spring chick Boxes for my etsy shop that I made this weekend!

I just adore these pictures, the hydrangea on the left, I picked up at one of my favorite local stores 55 west(their blog is listed under my Favorite PLaces) and the silohouette I picked up at a local antique mall- I am loving these silohouette pictures right now!!!

This is one of my mom's NEW felted purses, now available on my etsy shop!
I can't believe how talented and PATIENT she is to knit these by hand! I tried to knit a scarf once and I couldn't stand how long it took to get the final result! These purses are like 2 to 3 times this size beofre she felts them~ AMAZING!

SO many beautiful and inspirational photos~ I had my whole house redecorated by the time I finished my first issue!

This is the Valentine's Day box I made "for the love of supplies" swap.
The swap was hosted by artsymama.
I tried to capture a vintage Valentine's Day feel since my partner~ like me~ loves all things vintage and cute!

The inside was filled with goodies for making Valentine's Day crafts!

This is the BUNCH of stuff that Michelle sent me, she was an AMAZING swap partner!!! She really spoiled me!!! So many NEAT vintage pieces! I was in awe of how much great stuff she sent to me~ what a sweetheart! I really ADORE doing swaps, they really get my mind going with NEW craft ideas. Right now I am searching for a Easter swap...if you hear of any~ leave me a comment with info!

New Easter and Spring themed wands for my etsy shop! I just LOVe these old images of ducks and bunnies! I got some really pretty pale pink tinsel ribbon at my local craft store~ I tried experimenting with it on the bunny wand~ The possibilies are endless~!

Hi Jenelle, you have been quite busy! I like what you have made. Speckled egg is organizing a 'nest' swap. Not entirely Eatern but...perhaps it is something for you.
(eham cough cough) I have to confess that I have borrowed your valentine card, made it into a very little sticker and added the word swap. I organized a Valentine swap for 92 women of my internet forum. I will publish my presents with a link to you after the 14th. Hope you won't mind and you will be honoured. Thanks in advance and thanks for inspiration! Love LiLi

Your Spring Chick ornament is super cute!! I adore it! Just wanted to tell you that some of us bloggers have started a group "The Easter Bunny's Chicks" over at my blog and on Flickr and we'd love it if you would consider joining us :-) The idea is to showcase our work, and create a network of easter inspiration ;-)
