What a beautiful Easter day we had here in central Virginia. The sun was shining bright, there was a light breeze and temps in the high 60's - low 70's. Family at church what a blessing, the music was a blessing and the sermon was a blessing as well. Couldn't have asked for a better day for many reasons....
here. Hubby was very skeptical in eating this but he finally caved and guess what, he's still alive! :)
I made the following gift boxes thanks to Monique's blog at La Table de Nana. She is a very talented artist, photographer, baker, Grandmother, cook, etc.,). My boxes don't compare to hers but I had so much fun making them even though it took me most of this past week. Here they are:
Farm House (front side)
Farm House (back side)
Old Brick House
English Cottage I
English Cottage II
Beach Cottage (front side)
Beach Cottage (side)
Each house box had some treats inside, my Violet Shortbread Cookies (picture near top of this post).
These two pictures are of my new Beatrix Potter-Peter Rabbit collection. They arrived yesterday just in time for Easter. I will purchase two a year ;)
These are some cutie-patootie cupcakes my daughter made for our Easter meal. Green coconut held down by chocolate frosting. Peeps top them off. Cute and delicious!
I created this drawing (copycat from a Beatrix Potter painting*) on my Wacom art tablet and gave it to my granddaughter. It's supposed to be Grandma helping her put on her jacket. I added the wooden crate because I drew the little girl bunny too high.
This is another drawing (Beatrix Potter copy cat) that I made for my grandson. A grandmother hugging her grandson.
This third drawing is for both kids. The grandmother is a copycat from Beatrix Potter painting but the grandfather and the rest of the house I created. I wanted to draw a Grandpa and Grandmother with their precious grandchildren.
and here are my grandbabies and I (grandpa was inside taking a nap).
We are so blessed.
I pray you had a wonderful, blessed Easter.
*I create my drawings by hand using my Wacom art tablet. They are not traced, they are not photocopied in any way shape or form. Most of all, these are never, ever sold.
