What’s new? How are you doing? Ready for Easter? It just doesn’t seem like Easter should be in 3 days. But alas, it will be here before we know it! Do any of you have an Easter Tree? When I was a kid we had a tiny tree by our front door and we used to hang plastic eggs on it. Then when I was in my mid twenties and living on my own my mom gifted me a tree to decorate my home with. I have kept that tree and added egg decorations to it every year. One year I made Tattoo eggs . Another year I made photo eggs …which I didn’t end up hanging on the tree but decorating around the tree. This little tree has been a special tradition and fun to add to every year!
Today I have a craft you can do at anytime. As a matter of fact, we went on WSBT tv last month and made little shamrock ornaments and shamrock dishes to share as a craft to do for St. Patrick’s day. I have seen a lot of people making Salt dough ornaments. These are very similar but I think these are WAY easier to make! But… you be the judge! Let me know what you think!
