It's almost Easter!

Easter is definitely one of my favorite times of year. Not only is it a great holiday, but it also marks a pivotal point in the changing of the seasons. After Easter, cold and dreary winter days are replaced with warm and sunny spring afternoons; heavy jackets and socks turn to cardigans and brightly-colored flats...Easter weekend marks that spring is finally here! To top it off, all of my favorite spring flowers are in bloom - tulips, daffodils, peonies, pansies...

For this upcoming Easter, I went a little crazy with buying fabrics. It seemed as if every store I went, a new pattern or pastel fabric was right in front of me - inspiring me and waiting to be purchased. Right before spring break, I made about 100 headbands, barrettes, and magnets. Yikes! Luckily, I had an event at my friend Angela's church and was able to sell some of my pieces to some of the lovely women of C3 church. But...I still have 20+ flowers left!

Here's a sample of my Easter collection:

I love the pattern one here - it looks like a dyed Easter egg!

Bows are quickly becoming one of my favorite new accessories

Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but the yellow one is actually yellow and white checkers

I just wanted to share what I have been working on. Later this week I need to make two white flowers for a friend's daughters to match their white eyelet Easter dresses and will post pictures once I do so!

If you're interested in any of the above, please email me! (flowersarelovely{@}gmail{dot}com) I will hopefully be uploading most of these in my Etsy shop by the end of this weekend.

Now off to celebrate my birthday!
