Hoppy Easter

Hello Bloggers,

I hope your family has a blessed Easter....

John 11:25-26
King James Version (KJV)
 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
I Love Easter so much it's my favorite time of the year. Most people love Christmas but not me I love Easter. I love Easter because it is spring and Easter represents -new beginnings-. We are having a nice family get together I am hoping it won't rain, it's been so very very rainy the whole month of March and so far April has  been rain and a little sun. The weather has been in the 50's and 60's. I am hoping it will be at least 70 for Easter but we will see. I just went to the grocery store today and I had a big grocery bill of $298.00 for everything I am fixing plus the foods Steve and I eat. This all will last until next month except we will need fruit and veggies and fresh milk. Now I didn't think that was that bad of a food bill actually because I bought ham, turkey, cheeses, breads, rolls, produce, pantry,  my cart was full. Now the lady in line behind me wondered why I had so much food in my cart. Ha did she not know it was Easter? how much do you spend for holiday meals on your family gatherings? we are having about 10 people. 
Monday is my birthday, everyone is working except my mom and I so I am going out with mom, she always spoils me so I can't wait till my birthday! 
Okay it was a very busy week for me. My daughter and grandson spent last weekend with me and then everyday after that I was running. I finally had a tiny window of time yesterday and I made Morgan and Kayla a cute hand stamped necklace with my stamping supplies. I Love tools and I mean I really do love tools all kinds of tools, hand stamping tools, hammers, engravers, metal stamping tools of all kinds, scrapbooking tools, althouth I do not enjoy scrapbooking I love the supplies because I can make other things with them such as cards and all kinds of cool things. Of course I Love beads and supplies, sewing machines and all the tools one needs for that.
I made a few Easter cards... I don't yet have many stamps anymore so for my birthday I have requested several I have been wanting from Hero Arts. I placed an order with Simon Says Stamp for the stamps. They really have a lot of cute ones now a days that don't take up a lot of space because they are the clear stamps that lay flat, that is so awesome and easy to store.  

 I need a cloud stamp, I love clouds so I just painted some on. I have only a few stamps so I used what I had and I was able to find a tiny bird, flower.
They are just kind of simple really. I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut the images another tool I love.
Here is the hand-stamped jewelry I made this week. I am not a pro at this yet, but I am learning. It's a lot of fun but not as easy as one would think.  
For Morgan, yes a bird you know I love them!
for Kayla
The scratches don't show with the naked eye all that much it's silver filled findings. I have a hard time photographing the hand stamped jewelry I have to learn how to do that.

  3. Hi Kat! Glad you enjoyed your Easter. We had an Easter brunch of Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. :) April is a really nice month and I like it when Easter falls in April rather than March. I'm sure April is also nice for you since it's your birthday month. :) I like April's birthstone, too! :D Have a great rest of the week!

  4. Hi Kat,
    I am sorry I missed your birthday. I hope you had a wonderful day and a happy Easter. What a great job you did on the hand-stamped jewelry. You always have such wonderful and inspiring ideas.


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
