Winter Blues Perk Up

If Winter grays are making you blue – here’s something that might help.  EASTER…

I spent a wonderful couple of hours in my craft room making this cute little Easter basket but it was a real twofer – not only did I come out with an adorable little Easter treat, but I came out with a much improved attitude.

It seems pretty much anything to do with Easter makes you smile and/or gives you warmth.  All those sweet pastels, cuddly critters and the promise of Spring – well, what’s not to love.

Time to dig through your craft supplies and see what you’ve got to play with, or check out these goodies I have available in my shop, Old Raven on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/OldRaven?ref=seller-platform-mcnav&section_id=18446942


These little wire baskets have a white wash finish.  They’re very sturdy and a perfect size for tucking in Easter grass, a colored egg or a curious chick.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/513160007/miniature-easter-basket-wire-easter?ref=shop_home_active_9

And speaking of eggs – these are an Old Raven shop specialty.  They start out as those plain white plastic pull-apart eggs but end up these beautiful jewel toned beauties.  You can fill them with Kisses, jewelry (now that’s an Easter surprise) – or flower petals or bird seed for a wedding favor.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/227834680/easter-eggs-faux-marble-eggs-pull-apart?ref=shop_home_active_6


And these were a Vintage find.  These are the cutest little pink flower pots!  They have fuzzy pink flocking and the rims are edged with silk cherry blossoms.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/588014282/vintage-spring-flower-pot-pink-flocked?ref=shop_home_active_4


A new take on ‘egg cups’.  But of course you could fill them with a huge variety of Easter goodies or incorporate them into a larger Easter display.


And what would Easter be without a few carrots.  This is a nice variety pack of carrots that I just listed – lots of possibilities here!  https://www.etsy.com/listing/677794271/easter-carrots-faux-carrots-plastic?ref=shop_home_active_1

Go ahead, give yourself a Spring break, just a quick hop down the Bunny Trail, and life will look just a little bit sweeter (especially if you treat yourself to a bag of Hershey’s Kisses while you craft).

  1. There’s nothing like some craft time to get you back in the swing of things…and a little chocolate! Easter is my favorite time of year, my birthday is in March. I love springtime! Fantastic finds, I need to thrift shop with you!
