Easter Basket Alternatives to Candy

It's been awhile since I posted here, but I've been busy crafting!
We are responsible for bringing 12 filled Easter eggs for the classroom egg hunt.
But no chocolate and no nuts, and oh my it's hard to find candy that is safe for the little ones.
So, I did a little sewing instead :).

These make great candy alternatives for filling those plastic Easter eggs.
Each is about 2.25 inches tall by 1.25 inches wide and fits perfectly into a standard egg.
I had so much fun, I made a few extra and tucked them into my shop.

Easter Baskets for Teachers

We always struggle with teacher gifts around the holidays, wanting to balance both pretty and practical, without cluttering up their homes with unnecessary little 'treasures'.  I whipped up these cute little Easter baskets from some scrap fabric, loosely following this great fabric basket tutorial and filled them with goodies that hopefully our teachers will appreciate:

-- microwave popcorn
-- burt's bees lip balm
-- a package of flower seeds for planting
-- a spring-themed nail file
-- a little chocolate chick

and of course a sweet note of thanks for taking such good care of our little one.

EtsyGreetings Valentine Blog Hop

Our little Etsy team is hosting another great blog hop and I'm so happy to be able to participate again. This time around we're pairing a Valentine card from our shop with a gift item from Etsy. This one was easy for me. My valentine and I are both a little nerdy, quantitative methods folks (he: statistics in education, me: statistics in health). So this print from le petit elefant is a perfect gift for him. I just love it!

From my shop, I paired it with one of my "you are my favorite" valentines:
