Quick Treat Bags

If I can't do something at the last minute then I just won't do it at all apparently. There was no time to make elaborate goodies for the little ones this Easter. The plumbing upheaval was not resolved until Friday when 2 guys were here filling in holes and patching the foundation with cement. Now we have major work to do: replace the carpet in the master bedroom and the floor in the guest bath along with all the baseboards and woodwork in the master bedroom and bath. Life is good!

I had about 10 minutes on Sunday to assemble some candy in cello bags, tie them with ribbon, stuff them into white paper bags with a chocolate bunny and create little name tags for my grandson, Uriah and my sister's 2 grandkids, Reece and Gavin. They turned out pretty cute I think.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn- Happy Easter; Hero Arts- Serendipity Letters (from 1998); Other supplies: Lawn Fawn Daphne's Closet paper, Lemon Lawn Trimmings; May Arts Ribbon; Office Depot tags; Creative Memories circle punch; Copic markers.

As soon as these were done, I packed them up along with the Carrot Cake and Strawberry Cupcakes I made, put them all in the car with the 2 dogs and headed off to the family gathering at my nephew's house.

There is just something special about celebrating holidays with little children! I had a wonderful time, so wonderful in fact that I forgot to take photos (bad grammy!). Here's a picture taken the day before Easter of my little Uriah:

I don't know how Uriah stayed so calm sitting with that giant bunny, it kind of freaks me out. 
He is 19 months old today!



  1. Hi Nancy! They certainly turned out pretty cute! Good job!! Blessings

  2. Nancy your Easter treats look fabulous, I am sure the grand kids loved them!

  3. Oh, just look at that sweet face! I can't believe all that hair - he is so handsome, Nancy!

    I love your treat bags - they're more than just "pretty cute," they're adorable! Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter - so glad! Good luck with the rest of the work around the house - sending hugs! :)
