The Easter Basket Giveaway!
Yeah! The Easter baskets are done in plenty of time for people to get them before Easter. This is a first for me. I have a total of six. That is all there will be. Four will be available to sell in my Etsy store, one will be for me, and one will be given to some lucky GIVEAWAY WINNER! That's right we are on our second giveaway in the past few months. If you are interested in receiving the giveaway basket, complete with a hand sculpted chocolate bunny, a Happy Easter sign, sparkly Easter eggs, and a cute little chick, please leave your name below. I will randomly assign numbers to all participants, then select a number using a number generator. Participants can enter through March 9th. Winner will be announced March 10th and the basket will be mailed out March 12th.
Aren't they cute? The giveaway basket is located on the bottom shelf in the middle. It is the only basket with three eggs.
This is my personal basket. It is nicely wrapped in gift basket vacuum sealed plastic wrap. All baskets will be wrapped this way prior to being mailed out.
This is China's basket and balloon shop. Her little helper, Taylor is there. Sometimes she will spend a couple hours after school there with her mom. (This is not a permanent dio, so I didn't spend a lot of time putting in a lot of accessories or pictures).
A few weeks ago, my mom found a big bag of mini baskets at the Goodwill. They are perfect for doing different baskets. I have plans for the following baskets: baby shower, wine and cheese, spa, fruit, etc.
Adele's sister has stopped by after picking up the girls from school. She needs to order a basket for a coworker.
"I need to order a basket for a coworker. Do you have any great ideas in the $40 - $50 dollar range? (Mom)
"Sure, but what's the occassion? That will help me narrow it down." (China)
"Mom, can we get some balloons."
"Maybe. we'll see how well you behave until it's time to go." (Mom)
"Mommy, this is taking too long. I'm going to be late for riding lessons." (Nicole)
"Nicole, I have to get this basket ordered today. That horse isn't going anywhere." (Melanie)
"But mommy my instructor doesn't like it when I'm late." (Nicole, slightly agitated)
"Just calm down. I will talk to your instructor. You have definitely inherited your father's 'we can't be late or the sky is going to fall in' gene." (Melanie)
"What does that mean?" (Nicole)
"Never mind. Go sit on the bench and wait. It won't be much longer." (Melanie)
