And don't forget to link up what you've been up to this week!!!



Easter Crochet

Lots of Easter themed crocheting has been happening at my house recently. 




First up, some mini candy Easter bunnies. And of course the bunnies needed a carrot. 




Here's the mini pink bunny next to the regular size pink candy bunny. (The regular bunny is about seven inches tall.)






While I've been on a bunny kick this year, I did also make a few crochet Easter eggs. These cuties will be my yarn bombing supplies for April. I made a goal this year to do a little public yarning each month. You can see previous months here, here, and here



Bunny Kids Craft

One final Easter craft with the kids this week. And continuing our bunny theme this year.




I cut out lots of strips of spring patterned paper and let the kids glue them down onto a piece of manilla paper. 






Once we had all of our strips glued down we found a bunny outline online. I cut the bunny shape out of the paper and then we put it on top of our paper strips to reveal a colorful bunny. 




We also tried it in reverse. Tracing the bunny shape onto our paper strips and cutting the colorful bunny out.




I think both ways turned out cute. And now we have several bunnies hanging up around the house.


I am also excited to be the April Texas Women's Bloggers Blogger of the month! Yesterday on their blog I shared a fun dessert recipe, Cream Cheese Clouds, that you can see here.

Main St. 2014

Over the weekend was one of the biggest art shows that Fort Worth puts on, the Main Street Arts Festival. It's also one of my favorite art events.

This is a massive show. Main Street in Fort Worth (hence Main Street Arts Festival) is closed down for four days and is filled with white tents, fabulous artwork, live music, and festival food. Artists from all over the country (and some international) come to participate in this event.

On Saturday my youngest sister and her husband came over and we walked down and enjoyed some of the art together.
