Easter Basket Swappers Craftiness

Springtime is starting to show her beautiful face here on the Oregon Coast, along with the endless rain and even the occasional snow squall.  The blooming daffodils are a gorgeous reminder that Easter is just around the corner and our Easter Basket Swap is coming to a close with the mailing date of April 1st only a few days away. 

I hope everyone is having a great time putting your baskets together.  I've been out of town for a short vacation, then to be with family when my Grandma passed, and then a week down the coast for work.  Finally home and perched on the couch with my laptop this evening allowed for some much needed blogging time and visiting all of your blogs.  There is such Spring and Easter cuteness happening at your houses that I almost couldn't stand myself.  You guys are awesome!

Here's a list of what you've all been doing.  If I've missed anyone's springtime craftiness, please leave a message so I can share it here~

Connie's beautiful baskets at Pearls and Precious Stones - woven and felt baskets that are just beautiful!
Debbie's Spring Owl Tags at Gumdrop Mama - Adorable!
Donna's Spring and Easter Banners at Tea Loving Lady - made from beautiful scrapbook papers!
Jennifer Robin at Jennifer's Creations sent her basket out right away - You can see the beautiful contents and all of her handiwork here at Paige's Funny Magic.
Kerry's oh so cute Pincushions at Tales of a Needle and Thread - an Easter bunny and a gnome.  You have to check these out!
Laura's adorable Easter Bunny Rug Mugs at Tara Court - I've never heard of Rug Mug's and am in love!
Mary Lea's Easter Bunny Wreath at Mumsie's Musings - Shhhh!  I think I may be the reciepient of this gorgeous wreath and I'm SOOO excited!  Shhh now~

The basket for my partner is almost done.  I have a little bit to finish up on one of the handmade projects and a couple of other tuck-ins to add, then it will be off.  This has really been fun.  Thank you all for joining in and I hope you can find a minute or two to visit with the other Easter Basket Swappers.
