How to Make a Mini Easter Basket

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in crafts, easter | 9 comments

I haven’t been around much for the past couple of days.

My sweet mama had surgery on Monday.

4 1/2 hours of surgery.

She’s going to be ok.

She’s a trooper.

But more than that…the Lord is good.

And if you want to add someone to your prayer list…her name is Gloria.

I shared their home a while back…and shared how my parents were a lot like the Cleavers…and we look forward to her being about her normal “June” ways soon! 🙂

You can see their home HERE.

But for today I will share a super quick, fun Easter project.

  1. That is a really cute project, Melissa. I am saying a prayer for your Mom and a full and complete recovery for her. God’s blessing on all of you- xo Diana

  2. Hoping your Mom will recover and be her usual self in good time. Having surgery no matter how minimal or serious can be hard on anybody. Think your Dad will be taking exceptionally good care of her. What a pair those two must be.
    Love your cute little basket. Where did you get cupcake liners like those? Never seen any before. Maybe not looking in right places. As always you made such an adorable wonderful project. Will you be making those for the girl’s classes? Hope it’s gorgeous Spring weather there. Happy Spring days

  3. Melissa, I just said a prayer for your mom and I’ll continue to pray for her speedy recovery. I miss my mamma and papa — they are the only relatives I had nearby. But I do still talk to them throughout the day. I believe they give me courage and guidance. The baskets are really sweet — you have the cutest projects.
