I love the colors on the baskets!  That project bag is great! I love that kind of drawstring bag.  The knitted eggs are so cute!  And that welcome sign is really beautiful! Great Easter package!

Goodness, the packages received so far are amazing!  The Star Trek marshmallow peeps are so freaking cute, I can't even stand it!

And the red & aqua baskets are gorgeous.

As is that lovely, lovely table runner!

Oh, my gosh.  I was ridiculously spoiled by handmadewithlove!  Seriously.  She sent not only a basket for my little guy, but also a bucket of awesome for me!  Here we go... beware, seriously picture heavy! 

Both boxes (yes, boxes, plural... she's amazing) came with this cute packaging: 



My bucket of goodies: 



The menagerie (and yes, some of it is glass!  Ha!)



The jars have these sweet little bunnies on the lids: 



And she made me these awesome glittered animals I've been lusting after on Pinterest for forever.  Two moose and a goat (I love goats in a kind of unhealthy way.)



And these amazing hoops, which she took the patterns I had posted on my Pinterest and reverse engineered to figure out the patterns!  Seriously!  I can't even imagine, but I have next to no patience for cross stitch, so always find it amazing. 



And finally, some extras: 



A beautiful orange journal, an awesome book mark, and some chevron note cards.

Part Two! 

She also sent a basket for my son who is 4 months old.  This was the requested basket (Can you believe that all the rest of that awesomeness was "extra"!?

So, here's the little guy with his basket of goodies: 



I swear he was impressed... getting the smile photo timed is next to impossible right now, since everything goes directly in his mouth. 

The awesome basket with little frog and carrot eggs, and an "A" for Ansel:





Here he's showing off his new Easter bib.  It passed his test, as it immediately went right into his mouth.  Yum. 



A close-up of the bunny: 



And the amazing bunting using the coordinating guitar fabric.  I love this so much.  It's going on his wall this weekend! 



And, finally, some sweet extras: 



Baby has just started enjoying bath time, so he'll get lots of use out of the bath toys and wash cloths.

Thank you so much, Donna!  Everything was so thoughtful and amazing!

I'm loving everybody's loot!  I hope my partner posts pics soon.  I know she's been sick and busy and life has gotten in the way.  Sad  But, I looked through all of my pics, and seeing as I couldn't find any of what I made, I guess that means I didn't take pics.  I could have sworn I did.  I probably started to, got interrupted, and never did.  That's what happens to me 9 times out of 10.

Sarahelise, I am so glad everything arrived safely! Despite all  the bubble wrap, I was afraid the bunny jars might not arrive in one piece.  You liked the chevron fabric you made the table runner with for me, so you bought some to make a project for yourself---I did the same thing with the bunny jars I made for you.  After I finished yours, I made a set for myself and a set for my mom.  Thank goodness I have been hoarding all my empty salsa, olive, and sundried tomato jars! What a difference a little paint can make! Lol! 

I had so much fun making everything for you and Ansel! I dont do a lot of painting, so making the bunny jars and painting the A got me out of my fabric comfort zone, which was great---as was having an excuse to use glitter for the animals!   I will cross stitch for you any ole time---I am one of the odd ducks who finds the tediousness of it very relaxing.

I am happy Ansel gave his stamp of approval for everything.  I hope he likes the guitar fabric! The color palette of that fabric was just too cute, which is why his Easter basket, bunny, and bunting are sewn in those colors.  He is such a sweetie and I hope his first Spring is a very special one!
