Instead of Easter Baskets ...

 Instead of sending Easter baskets full of chocolate and jelly beans
to the grand kids in California I decided to do something completely
different this year.  We sent the kids two cardboard houses to color, paint
 and play in.  Kaitlyn has a house and Cole has a castle.  I
do think this will keep them busy while Mommy Sarah has a little
down time to hopefully put her feet up and relax.
This is Clair who is the grand daughter of a FB friend.  I sent
Clair a few Easter/spring dresses for her American Girl doll.
I think the doll in the front is a Bitty Baby also made by
American Girl.  I have two patterns that fit this size doll but
haven't had time to make anything yet.  Kaitlyn also
got an Bitty Baby from Santa this year ... so I better
find time to make them both a few outfits for 
this size doll before they are on to something else.


  1. what a great idea. I bet they'll have a lot of fun with those

  2. Those are just fabulous and what a cool idea. We bet they were a hit. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I bet Sarah preferred this then the candies.

  4. K.,
    Love those boxes--great idea. For their next surprise I suggest sending them unmarked boxes and see if they can get creative and design something on their own. It might be interesting to see what they come up with!
