Baskets, Shakers, and Laughs!

Over the weekend, I was able to finally meet some wonderful and very crafty ladies at a small gathering.   Although this was my first time meeting most of them, it felt as if I've known these girls for a really long time!  We ate, we talked, and we crafted!  Everyone brought a little goodie to share and I'd like to share them with you!

Here is what I made for the small gathering . . .

I got the template from {HERE}.  With all the scraps and leftover papers, I made paper flowers.  My gf Kim Yu of Kimbee's Creations inspired me to make these!  Thanks Kim!  :)

This one is from Michelle of Mushi's Creative Inspirations.  She made a cute Easter basket with Hello Kitty dressed in an Easter costume attached to the front.

Joni of Crafty Hula Hands surprised me with this . . . when I pulled the ribbon tab, a rubber stamp of Baby Bunny hopped out!  What a sweetie you are!

Joy U. of A Place To Be Me made this adorable popcorn box basket.  She stuffed the inside with goodies!  :)

Jodi of INKED INSPIRATIONS made this super cute basket.  Not only that, she made this card for my birthday!  Jodi ~ Thank you and you know how much I appreciate you!

Joy D. of Tamiko's put together this Easter basket!  I couldn't believe she stitched some the the basket handles with her sewing machine!

Teri of big Ideas From A Little Girl created this Easter basket.  I just luv those felt flowers!  Teri also did a make 'n take that day . . . a double shaker picture frame!

Here's mine . . . don't look too closely at some of my mistakes!

Thanks girls!  That was a fun day and I can't wait to spend the day with you again!  Needing "adult" conversation is good for my soul!  :)
