I will use this installment in the Pack-O-Fun SeriesÂ to celebrate Easter. This year Easter falls on April Fools Day. I sure hope the Easter Bunny doesn’t play any funny business – were looking forward to our baskets and annual Easter egg hunt.Â this year we plan on modeling the Pak-O-Fun example for creating “Dressed Up Easter Eggs”
We have ourÂ constructionÂ paper ready, along with our scissors and tape. I will postÂ an update to share the outcomes. Happy Easter!

The kids got into Valentine’s Day this year by selecting small felted characters to be included in a mobile. Several of these we actually bought at the after Christmas sales. We added all of the hearts with cut felt. This mobile turned out pretty great. It was easy and the girls didn’t want to take it down after the holiday was over. I think that qualifies as a successful project.
I love Valentine’s Day. Not even for the romance and such but because I love the color combo of red and pink and IÂ love to decorate for Valentine’s Day. It helps me with the post-Christmas blues after I have had to tear down the winter wonderland. Admittedly I often put Valentine’s Day decor up in early January.
We found these red paper berry baskets at the after Christmas clearance sale. As soon as we spotted them we knew they would be perfect for hand-drawn Valentine’s Day gift baskets. We drew on them with white gel pens, filled them with treats and gave them to teachers and neighbors.
Why should Christmas be the only holiday connected to ornaments? I made or found several Valentine’sÂ ornaments to hang around the house this year. Each of these had a componentÂ from a Christmas ornament that I cut or clipped to make something new. More red and pink throughout – yes, please!
