My friends tease me for saying "I can make that" whenever we go shopping anywhere (or out to eat!)but they love that I can craft things that I would otherwise buy for more money. If you like what you see, check out some of my other projects at Monzanita's. Leave me a comment if you have any questions or suggestions!

    Thanks for great inspiration for Easter egg fillers. We have girls here, but this definitely has got me thinking about what we could do. Yay for less candy!
