Resurrection Eggs {tutorial}

Good morning! Easter week is here. Yay! I love this time of year. We have a chance to really focus on our Savior and all he did for me & you! One of our favorite Easter traditions is sharing the Easter story using our Resurrection Eggs set. I am not the one that made this one up. I made our first set when my oldest was just a little guy when I was serving in the Young Women’s organization at church. We all made a set for our families at one of our activities. We’ve used it every year since. Let me show you how to make your own set. :)

This week’s party is still going on so feel free to swing by. :) If you are a blogger, I’d love to see what you are up to. You can do all of that right here.

Good morning! All the Christmas décor is down, and I’m feeling like I have a fresh start! How about you? Which part of your house are you tackling first? The entry way is a great place to start because the entry way is the very first thing people see when they come into your home. It is also the place where your family is coming and going.

I know. ;) Let me show you how you can tackle this area in our home with this easy shelf & hooks DIY project. Let’s get started! :)
