Egg-cellent Easter.jpg 
Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays.  Growing up my favorite thing to do was run around the yard and gather up all of the Easter eggs.  Now as I am older, it is just as fun to hide them for others to find!This year I decided to make an Easter Egg Banner project that I discovered on Michael's website.  I may not be a craft guru, but I still had a blast making it... even though some of my eggs look more like squished blobs of yarn. Materials:Disposable CupsPaper PlateGlue GunGlue [Read More...]
