Aloha, all! When it comes to celebratory events, I try to find out how one would send greetings using 'Olelo Hawaiian, or the Hawaiian language. As I don't speak the language, I have to rely on internet explanations of the meaning of words so I don't commit a faux pas. And, when it comes to wishing, "Happy Easter," I wasn't certain what I should say without stumbling. So, "Happy Easter" it … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
Handmade Easter Cards
Aloha, all! With all that's been going on in the world, with all the events being canceled or postponed, there are some things that are written in concrete on the calendar. This week will bring two such events - Passover and Easter. I definitely have participated in seders on many occasions with my Jewish friends. But I grew up in a home where we celebrated Easter. My favorite memories of … [Read more...] about It’s Easter Week!
Aloha, all! I really did do more Easter Cards than I've posted, but this one, my last one made using the set, Everybunny, makes me smile every time I look at it. I made it for my youngest grandson who, with this two sisters, has a flock of egg-laying chickens. And they love those chickens! Now, granted, their chickens are … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
Aloha, all! As long as I had the stamp set, Spring Sampler, out on my work table for yesterday's Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, I decided that I should use some of the Easter images in the set for my next set of Easter cards. I'm sending two of these to my older almost-teenage grandsons on the west coast Somehow I don't think that they'd … [Read more...] about Easter Sampler!
Aloha, all! I was so very happy to see my favorite Easter Stamp set from last year - Everybunny - carry forward into the current Stampin' Up! Catalog. There are so many darling images in it, and I didn't get to use it nearly enough last year. So this year I'm starting early - and easy! Isn't thiis little girt bunny … [Read more...] about My First Easter Card of the Year!
Aloha, all! Once I started to work play with the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Everybunny, I just could not put it down - especially since it is nearly 90% an Easter stamp set! That is, 7 of the 8 stamps in the set are bunnies and chicks with an Easter theme. The 8th stamp - not entirely. Now that I think about it, I may have to go make a card with the … [Read more...] about Happy Easter, Everybunny!
Aloha, all! As I shared with you yesterday, I held a Stamp-a-Stack just for myself earlier this week in an effort to make AND send out a nice number of Easter Cards. In a Stamp-a-Stack, at least the way I do them, I have two or three basic layouts and papers and card stock cut to the size of a sketch that I've made for myself. Then I stamp and mix and … [Read more...] about This Really was a Stamp-a-Stack!
Aloha, all! I was bound and determined that Easter was not going to get by without my having made - AND SENT OUT! - Easter cards! Yes, I made lots of Valentine and St. Patty's Day cards. But most of them are still sitting in my stash of unsent greeting cards. I am very pleased to say that every Easter card I made this year has been put into the … [Read more...] about Cute Bunny for a Little Girl!
Aloha, all! I spent most of the early part of this week making cards that highlight Spring or Easter! For these few days of blog posts, I'm going to focus on the cards that I made from the Easter Stamp Set, Everybunny. It is SUCH a cute set, and I especially like it because it's one of those sets that I can play like I'm a child again and really … [Read more...] about Think Spring!
Aloha, all! Would you believe that my first Easter card of 2012 would be to enter a color challenge? Moi, who is deathly afraid of color challenges? Well, believe it. The fact of the matter is that I've been having a week where I've just been piddling around trying to figure out what I'm going to do next. Well, it's not been quite … [Read more...] about My First Easter Card of the Year!
Aloha, all! I mentioned that last week I participated in a fund-raiser garage sale for my Family & Community Education (FCE) group. I knew that, as soon as that was over, I'd have time to get back into my craft room. And I could tell I was focusing on that as I kept seeing things for sale that gave me crafting ideas. Take this little floral … [Read more...] about Garage Sale Finds
