This is a special ‘Things That Make Me Smile’ post for this wonderful Easter Sunday. Even though I’m an atheist it’s my favourite holiday to go all out on (beside Halloween but that’s a given). I mentioned it every year how I grew up with quiet an extravagant amount of Easter festivities and tradition. My grandmother on my father’s side of the family grew up in a farming community that mostly consisted of Polish/Ukrainian families so her Germany family adopted their traditions. Easter to them is big holiday. So even though I don’t celebrate the religious side of it like Lent I do enjoy decorating my house with bunnies, having an Easter tree made of pussywillows, dying eggs, and displaying my array of handmade designed Easter eggs, plus chocolate (who could forget the chocolate). It’s all rather strange, but then again I’m rather strange.
My favourite tattoo Easter eggs. The second one is a swimming horse, it’s hard to see but it has bubbles on it’s body and all around. (DIY here, and most of them here)
The top of my shelf, which happens to be filled wtih My Little Pony’s and Pysanky eggs.
Making bracelets! One for my friend’s little girl and one for me. Kit Kat is a nickname that one of my co-worker calls me and I think it’s adorable.
My Easter themed nail designs.
Butter cleaning herself on her cat palace. She doesn’t sit there very much right now but I have a feeling when it starts getting sunnier she will not be able to resist sunbathing there.
This year’s Easter display. I didn’t end up getting an Easter tree this year because of health issues related to my concussion which meant I was home bound for the last week. Instead I have my coffee table which has been decorated all month with our Easter goodies, and various decor. I love these giant Easter eggs I found at Dollarama.
My rainbow collection of jump rings which are for April’s DIY project.
A bowl of crazy, some glow in the dark plastic Easter eggs I decorated.
Trying out something new and being blown away by the results. These are stunning, I honestly had to stop myself from doing more (I already decorated 2 dozen). They are really fun and the natural dye is surprisingly fun to experiment with.
DIY of them here.
Holiday snail mail! Made these postcards myself with Easter transfers and plenty of stickers.
Easter weekend suffered the same fate as the last month which doesn’t make me smile but I always find it pretty to find a fresh white blanket of snow in the morning.
Oh also these cute St. Patrick Day postards. Wrong holiday but aren’t these stickers adorable?
