easter baskets easter swaps!

another happy easter post.. lots of pictures.. I thought I would take the time to post from a couple of swaps.. The first one is from the easter basket swap hosted by Genevieve Olsen of Bella Enchanted. Genevieve was my partner and I had mor fun filling a basket for her. Then I recieved her wonderful basket for me! I was so excieted and I love everything in it including the awesome basket itself. I took this picture which does not do it justice because you cant see whats in it! So Sweet ! I love it all! Thank you Genevieve! the next picture is of a little nest that was in the basket.. I stuck it in a plant.

this picture is of the basket I sent to Genevieve... ( i feel like this is all show and tell on blogland.. I think my next post needs more substance.. hmmm...) anyways.. She loved her basket! I'm so glad. I really did have fun making this basket up for her.

this next basket is the basket I recieved from my secret pal at work.. so cute isnt it? she even made the basket and cross stitched the eggs.. LOVE IT!

OK, the next pics are from the hippity hop easter swap hosted by heather Bluhm

Vivian, I loved your "show and tell", it looked like a really fun swap! - You have inspired me to try one, so I am participating in a banner swap.

My favorite photo was the pies! - yum.
