I found a cute little pattern here. They are very quick and easy to make and she has a wonderful tutorial as well as a printable pattern! They are for size 6-9 months but you can do what I did and just cut them slightly larger if you need them bigger.
Have fun and enjoy!!

I know, second post in one day, I can hardly believe it myself!! I was so excited though about checking off a few more projects on my list as I finished them and I wanted to share them with you!! First, remember those chairs I posted about back in January? To paint or not to paint? Well, I decided to go ahead and paint them and boy am I glad that I did!! I like them soooo much better now! For those of you who didn't see the before photos back in January, here they are.
Here's how I did it:
Have a lovely day!!

Then, I wandered into the Dollar Store for some gift bags as well as a few goodies to fill them with for my kids' classroom Easter parties. While in there I found these adorable little marshmallow bunnies and chicks. I got a couple of bags for my candy/dessert buffet that I'm going to do for Easter. You see, hubby and I gave up all sweets/candy/desserts etc... for the Lenten Season. That means nothing sweet for me until Easter Sunday. I have been craving something sweet for so long!! I thought it would be fun to go all out on Easter Sunday with sweet little candies, cupcakes, and other pretty desserts on a buffet for everyone to enjoy.

Okay...some more fun stuff!! Remember the Sweet Little Nest swap I mentioned a while back? Well, I'm finally able to post what my swap partner Heather sent me! Isn't this such a sweet nest? I love it so much and look at all of the goodies she sent along with it!
Here is a beautiful box in a lovely shade of pale blue that I simply adore! On the box are the sweetest cherubs (which I also love) it is soooo me - just what I love! And guess what was inside the box??Yep...this oh so cute rabbit - which I also love!
And...check out this lovely tag with beautiful ribbon attached she made for me
Then, I got another package from sweet Deborah at Pictures, Pots and Pens for participating in her Pay It Forward!! She sent me an adorable bucket filled to the brim with all sorts of wonderful goodies!! The beautiful bucket is a lovely gift in itself!
She beautifully wrapped each gift in pretty pink rose covered paper. It was so pretty I took a picture of the wrapping first. It was driving my son nuts! He kept saying please, please can we just open it?? Why do you have to take a picture - LOL!
Inside were these lovelies...
A notepad that says "Both of us can't look good at the same time. It's either me or the house." Too funny! Also enclosed was a super cute magnet that says "It's so exhausting being fabulous." Love it!! Also packaged inside were adorable Mary Engelbreit dimensional stickers, a wonderful dark chocolate candy bar with a vintage postcard image as the wrapper. I just know I'm going to use that wrapper in a great art project after I've eaten the candy. The wrapper is so pretty! There is also a wonderful rose scented candle and a nice BIG bar of soap (which I love) that smells really yummy!!
Thank you sooo much Deborah! You are very sweet and very kind to send such a wonderful gift! I really appreciate your kindness and generosity!
I have one other goodie that I received in the mail that I want to post but I'm suddenly having trouble uploading photos to blogger. So...I'm going to keep you in suspense until tomorrow when I can hopefully upload the photos.
Have a good night all!

Just wanted to let you all know that I have been away due to a virus on my computer. I cannot get online and I am unable to access anything on my compter- emails, files, website, address book -nothing! I am currently at a friend's house using her computer to post this and I hope to get mine taken care of this weekend! By Monday morning, with any luck, I will be back up and running! Please bare with me -I know that there are a couple of you who I owe emails to and I am also trying to get my website orders out. I haven't forgotten anyone and I will get back to answering my emails very soon! I apologize but will be back!
Have a great weekend everyone! Hope to talk again Monday!
