Finding My Inner Martha (Yeah Right)

I have come across many blogs in my day where bloggers post about all their creative ventures or post a yummy new recipe. I am not that woman. I normally leave the creativity to a creative friend, normally Yolanda. Anyhow, I was at Walgreens buying tube socks for my daughter's field trip and I passed the Easter isle. I looked at the usual $20 Easter Baskets and after looking closely at them I realized, these baskets have a lot of crap in them. I should make my own. So I grabbed a cart and started grabbing little items here and there. Before you knew it I spent $110 on those socks for my daughter and they came with all this fun Easter stuff! lol
I put together small baskets for my co-workers/friends!
I love that I found the walking/pooping (gumball) chicken.
Here is the basket for the boy, some finishing touches will be added this weekend. For some reason I loved that I found CORN ON THE COB carmel corn. Too cute.

Basket for the girl.

The fun thing is that they can actually use the 'baskets' for other items once all the candy and toys are used up. I had fun making these. I have made stuff before but for the first time in a LONG time I think I truly put these together with a sparkle in my eye. Maybe I've just had the holiday blues for too long and I am finally getting over it. Bring on the next holiday.
Happy Birthday to my Grandpa Felix (May he rest in peace) and to my sweet cousin Doe.
