Easter Swap Eggs-citement!
Viv's Easter Basket Swap!
Easter is such a lovely time for crafting. The images are so sweet and filled with meaning...many are symbolic of Christ and the Resurrection. Colors are softer...like those in our memories. We have had a very early spring in Utah. Trees are leafing and blossoming...it seems more like the end of April rather than the last day of March.
I had the pleasure to participate in an Easter swap hosted by Vivian of Viv's Whimsy. I am so happy that she takes the time to organize holiday swaps...I would be so nervous to even try to do such a thing. I hope she knows how much she is adored by her followers. The theme of this swap was simple...a small Easter basket filled with treats and trinkets. My swap partner was Debbie of My Vintage Daydreams. I have been lucky to have been paired with new partners for my last few swaps. It's lovely to get acquainted with new friends from around the country.

I had planned to do a whole theme with Bambi and Thumper...like I did with Snow White.
But I got derailed by a very busy month...next year for sure!

I've had this for years.
