Do You Realize That Easter......

is only about a week and a half away?! This came as a shock to this morning. It always kinda sneaks up on me. But, fortunately there are so many great projects over on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog for a lovely, handmade Easter. Like these fabric eggs.

We can't go near the real thing as Kaiya is sooo allergic and I hate those crappy plastic ones. I'll definately be making some of these. They come from Retro Mama's blog. And a couple of these from Molly Chicken.

How cute!
This morning I made a new game for the girls, got the idea from here, who got it from here. And now you, gentle reader are finding it here!
A sweet little Montessori inspired button learning game. The girls love matching the colorful felt squares and trying to work the buttons through. I decided to make a little bag to keep the pieces in.

I just cut a rectangle from another piece of felt and sewed up the sides. Then I cut five holes on each side, cut 2 pieces of ribbon (enough to go all the way around and have have extra for the handle). I then threaded one through each hole, ends coming out of the same side and did the same for the other except they came out the opposite side. Tie the ends and pull closed. Took just a couple of extra minutes. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Adorable. I have got to get started on my Easter/Passover celebration stuff. I really dislike buying commercial things and prefer to make my own.

So hard trying to do all this without my wee ones finding their suprises:P

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
