Make It A Fun-Filled Easter

Those of you who know me will be familiar with my many phrases and sayings.  Well, I am about to unleash some now – Oh My Word! (that’s one) Where has this year disappeared to!? (two) I just cannot believe that the time for Easter posts are upon us.  Yikes! (three – thus far)

Okay – since tomorrow is Good Friday, there is plenty of Easter-related stuff around the net right now.  As I sit here wondering what angle to take for this Easter post, I realised that actually like Christmas, Easter is really a fun time for the kids.  My grandchildren, regardless of their age – absolutely live and die for the Sunday Easter Egg Hunt.  In fact, I am sure that you will agree that it is fun all round.  My daughters have great fun hiding the eggs.  As for myself, watching the kids run around and shriek with delight at their plentiful chocolate finds – that is such a thrill for me. I stand in the background making all sorts of remarks about the Easter Bunny and his weird and wonderful habits.  Get such a kick outta that.

So, these memories of fun times on Easter Sundays have set the tone for this post.  All we want to do is present you with some fun and quirky Easter images. Just because we can! (and that’s four).

That is what Marica and I would like to wish for all our readers, friends and family – a fun-filled Easter Weekend.  Since the underlying essence of Easter is about renewal and fresh starts – make your break away from work, filled with fun times – it’s one of the quickest ways to feel revitalised.

Trawling for an Easter greetings, I found the video below – just in case you ever wondered how Easter chocolates are made – seems hard work! I love it – find it funny and hope you do to.  It sets the tone for my week end.

Love you all and speak soon again.

10 Dreamy DIY Easter Eggs

I can vaguely remember decorating some Easter eggs in my early pre-school years. I haven’t painted an egg since. It’s a little sad that as we grow older we leave some fun traditions behind. However, after finding some inspirational images of beautiful and very grown-up looking Easter Eggs I realised that you don’t have to be 8 years old to enjoy painting an egg. In fact these lovely images has set my DIY hands a-twitching.

If you would like to try your hand at creating some Easter Egg awesomeness be sure follow the link in each image caption to its original source for DIY instructions. With dreamy decorated eggs like we have below, the sole pity is that Easter comes around only once a year!

Sunshine Lemons

By Marica

I was browsing through Etsy searching for some Easter inspiration when I stumbled upon these adorable digital designs by Sunshine Lemons (adorable name too)! The brainchild of Louise Sanders, Sunshine Lemons specializes in digital scrapbooking paper sets and party printables that range anything from labels, gift tags and greeting cards, to cake toppers, coaster designs and paper bunting (you just need a little imagination).

Super pretty Shabby Chic bunting printables! This set can be purchased through the Sunshine Lemons' Etsy shop.

This is an excellent resource if you are one of those crafty DIY humans. Furthermore, the extreme cuteness-factor in Louise’s designs makes for perfect kids party decorations and invites.

Another exciting little fact about Sunshine Lemons – she’s from Durban. And you know how I LOVE to find new South African creatives – especially on Etsy!
