An Easter Surprise!

Leave a comment

I admit it. I ran away last month. For all the girly-foofoo you see me do, another equally important part of me craves woodlands and wilderness, but now I’m back, relaxed and ready to share once more.

Speaking of sharing, my wonderful friend Peggy Fowler sent me the most wonderful Easter surprise: carrot furniture for my 24 carrot bank – another one of my adopted dollhouse finds.

I arrived home one Friday to find a letter from Peggy and inside a most fabulous kit! I immediately sat down with my alcohol markers and stained my pieces then assembled them. I’ve since learned that you can deepen the color by coloring over the area more than once. If you’ve never heard of alcohol markers, they usually go by the brand name Copics. Lots of companies now ride the bandwagon and produce their own alcohol markers, Close to My Heart being one of them.

I’ll probably finish my bunny bank next year sometime, right now I am working on swaps for the Quarter Connection Convention and planning a mini house party at my house for the NAME Gazette Convention. I’m also trying to plan a state day…so any suggestions would be appreciated!
