DIY EASTER CANDY JAR

There are certain holidays that we are used to celebrating back in the States that just don't feel the same here in Korea. Holidays are definitely less commercial in Korea, which I can apppreciate. But it is also nice to have a touch of "home" during the holidays. So when Appah was in the States a few months ago I asked him to pick up some Easter candy that I could give to the boys for Easter. Well, he sure he did bring me some candy, bags and bags of it. I thought I would share the candy with some of our American friends who might also be missing a taste of home. Using the Happy Easter Gift Band printable, I put together a simple and cute Easter Candy Jar. After the recipient eats the sweet treats they can remove the Happy Easter Gift Band and reuse the jar.

HAPPY EASTER PRINTABLES TRIO

Easter is right around the corner and if you are looking to put together some last minute Easter treats for friends and loved ones I have a Happy Easter Printables Trio for you! Inspired by last year's Happy Easter bunny card printable, I designed a new Happy Easter bunny card, gift tag/label and gift band. All you need is some white cardstock, printer paper or sticker paper and a few simple tools and you are good to go!

The Happy Easter gift band can be printed on to white sticker paper and used to seal up glassine bags of sweet treats. If you don't have sticker paper handy then you can print onto white copy paper and use a glue stick to adhere the band to the bag.

The Happy Easter gift card/gift labels can be printed onto white cardstock or white sticker paper and used to top off boxes or bags.

If you are having an Easter celebration you can also cut the Happy Easter gift labels and stick them onto white paper cups (and even make a Paper Cup Easter Basket).

And if you just want to jot down a simple Easter greeting you can print out the Happy Easter bunny card printable onto white cardstock.

PAPER CUP EASTER BASKET DIY FOR OH HAPPY DAY

I love miniature versions of everything so I created a small version of a traditional Easter basket using a pretty patterned paper cup and a few simple supplies. You can fill the Paper Cup Easter Basket with sweet treats or fun little Easter themed trinkets. 

Swap out the HAPPY EASTER message handle with a personalized message or name and these paper cup baskets can be used as a party favor.

CUSTOM WATERCOLOR PORTRAIT BY JENNIFER VALLEZ 

You've probably seen my friend Jennifer Vallez's work before, she is the genius behind Sophie + Lili. Jennifer and I have been friends for a long time and I've blogged about her custom dolls (still love my Sally doll), custom valentines, original illustrations, and amazing collaborations. Today I wanted to share about her latest and greatest project: Custom Watercolor Portraits! Her watercolor illustrations are absolutely beautiful and I know many of us having been requesting family portraits and now she is offering them right here. We just received our family watercolor portrait and it is perfection. Our family was lucky enough to be one of her first test families and I could not be more thrilled. We haven't had a proper family portrait in years. I sent Jennifer a photo from our Rome trip last year and she captured it perfectly (just picture the Colosseum in the background). I think a custom watercolor portrait is the perfect unique and memorable gift to give any friend or loved one. I know our portrait is going to be a family keepsake.

YOU ARE A "WON"DERFUL FRIEND VALENTINE PRINTABLES

Along the theme of play money valentines, I designed valentine printables for Korean play money. The currency in South Korea is the won and hence the You Are A "Won"derful Friend Valentine printables.

I'm pretty sure the majority of you will not be able to put these valentine printables to good use, but I couldn't resist!

I CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON YOU VALENTINE PRINTABLES

One of my boys' favorite toys growing up was a toy cash register full of toy money. Although they don't use the toy cash register as much as before, they still use the play money. Play money is not only fun for kids to play with it but it also helps them learn how to count, add, and subtract money. So as another non-candy valentine alternative (see other non-candy alternatives here and here and here) I thought it would be fun to design "I Can Count On You" Valentine printables and attach a set of play money.

You can purchase play money online or at your local educational supply store. If you cannot locate play money try packaging a set of number magnets or number cards.
