Easter Wrap-up and a New Challenge Hop Starts Monday

Another hanging banner that you inspired. Once I saw your wonderful work I realized that I could just quickly sew things down without having to worry about frayed edges. Makes sewing so much more fun!

I was so excited to get this email on Monday from one of my readers.
Mary V. made this super adorable Easter banner. There is no better compliment, than reading this email!
Thanks so much Mary for allowing me to share your banner with everyone.
I LOVE it!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We had a beautiful spring day here and took full advantage of not having to pile on the coats to enjoy the outdoors. 

We may not have had quite that big of an outdoor adventure, but we did spend the day at the Aquarium. They have the best brunch in town and it's such a fun place to take kids. The little guy really enjoyed seeing things, as well. His little legs were kicking up a storm as we walked through the exhibits.

Seeing the "real" Easter Bunny was the hit of the day, for this little one!

We planted a "Magic Bean" garden on Friday and Easter Sunday it bloomed.
It's a fun project for little ones, that my friend started with her grandchildren, years ago.

 Monday starts our "Say What?" challenge and we have a great line-up of bloggers, who can't wait to share what they have to say! Mark your calendars, because this promises to be loads of fun!
