“Snow” and Tell Easter

Greetings Kids!
I’m so glad you stopped by today. I have some great photos to show you!

Kelly sent pictures of what’s been happening in her neighborhood this past week! πŸ™‚


It may be Spring, but Mother Nature still had a surprise up her sleeve. Kelly said they had one of those beautiful snowfalls that softly coats everything in white frosting!

Isn’t it gorgeous?

Kelly’s puppy, Artie, just loved it!

He and Kelly even went sledding!

Last weekend, it was “Pet Day” at the Harley Dealer and he won a grooming gift certificate!

And at the Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs, he met the Bunny!!!

Thanks so much to Kelly for sharing her photos!!!

(If YOU have any to show us, don’t be shy! I’d love to post them here on the blog. (Send them to crystal at beadhappilyeverafter dot com)

For those who celebrate Easter, I wish you wonderful day! Take it easy on those chocolate eggs and jelly beans.
No, wait! It’s a holiday – eat whatever you like. πŸ™‚

Happy Weekend to all . . .



I’d love to hear your thoughts!

What Weekend?

Is it Monday already?

The weekend certainly flew by. I wish I could report we were having fun – but we were immersed in our taxes. I’m sure if you look in a thesaurus for the opposite of “fun”, you’ll see the word “taxes”. πŸ˜‰ But I won’t whine. A weekend is a weekend, after all!

Easter will be arriving towards the end of the month, so how about a holiday-related weekly question?

Do you have (or have you had) any particular Easter traditions?

While my kids were growing up, I loved to hide eggs for them. I used those colorful plastic eggs that open easily. I’d fill them with candy, tiny toys, and coins (pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters). I always placed one in their slippers so they’d find it as soon as they got out of bed. The rest were spread all over the house.

When the girls were really young, we left Easter Bunny footprints for them to discover on Easter morning. Sir Beads and I could make some pretty impressive paw prints by dipping a few fingers in flour, and then pressing them here and there on a dark carpet or even the floor. The kids were enchanted to find “bunny tracks” in the living room and leading down the stairs.

Good times, for sure! πŸ˜€



Mrs. Cottontail, I Presume

What’s 5 inches tall, sewn entirely by hand, and wearing a purple vest?

That would be “Pamela Cottontail” – a little bunny I just finished. πŸ˜‰


Years ago, I used to make a lot of these for craft fairs. Lately, I’ve been having a yen to sew something, and since it’s almost Easter, I decided to pull out my old design.

My sewing machine is currently packed away, but no matter because I especially love to sew small items by hand. What fun I had making this cutie, again!


Her buttons are vintage Swarovski crystals in a beautiful multi-color effect called “Vitrail Medium”.

“Pamela” could use a brother or a sister, but I’m afraid I’m out of time to provide one by Easter.

However, after this short spell of sewing, I’m inspired to make another one (or three) for next year! πŸ˜€

Is there something that you used to enjoy that you’ve been meaning to do again?
