Out of my Funk

It's amazing. You spent so many days cooped up in your house, no contact with the outside world. And do you know what happened to me? I'm bored, uninspired, and uninterested. In pretty much everything.

So, I'm pulling myself out of this pinkeye-induced funk and getting back out in the world. I'm reorganizing my "office" space and looking for inspiration anywhere I can. This is what I've found.

Now, I have been more than motivated and I'm ready to kick some crafty butt!

Happy (Yesterday Was) Easter to you!

Pink eye be damned, we had a great Easter.

Everyone woke up early and searched for baskets, then got dressed and went to Mamaw and Papaw's house for breakfast and an egg hunt. The kids were so tired; they fell asleep in the car. At 2.75 and 4.5, that doesn't happen very often! The rest of the day was just family time...the best part!

I did do some Easter crafting this year, of course. And, of course, I did all of it the night before.

Lacey and Piper were the sweetest little bunnies I've ever seen.

Now, I know you want details. The cami tops and skirts came from the "big girl" section at Target. Actually, so did the "leggings". They are adult knee hi's that I made into legwarmers. SO easy! I'll show you sometime.

And, yes, that is a fuzzy bunny tail you see, too! Quick and easy, made of the same felt as the ears.

Finally, the ears: Super simple! I cut a pattern out of card stock, traced it on the felt, cut, and hot glued. When the ears were finished, I made the bows, and glued them on. The project took longer than I expected, but was definitely worth the time!

I'll be back tomorrow, I swear! We're finally on the mend.
