I'm glad Easter is late this year.
It gives me more time to craft before Easter.
(This isn't the cloche for my swap)
My only enemy is the hot glue gun.
I end up with third degree burns on my finger every time I get near one.
I finished making my Cloche for the swap today.
And decorated my hutch with Easter decorations, some made by me
and some from past swaps with blogging friends.
I'm working on these paper mache eggs next.
I had plenty of help from my little Wing Man, Bam Bam.
I hope you have a warm and sunny week.
Hugs from me and Ms. Wilma and Bam Bam.

Ha! I love your little wing-man!
And your Easter décor looks great! I spy my all time favorite book "The Golden Egg"...given to me by Grandma Dorothy of course. :)
I had to smile about the glue gun. Well, I do feel bad for your poor fingers! Isn't it just the worst kind of burn? But anyway, I gave in and let my 5 year old niece use my hot glue gun when we were x-mas crafting. She was a total pro! I couldn't believe it. Not a single burn. So that's what I got her for Christmas! A pink glue (low temp) gun and glue sticks plus a bunch of crafty stuff. She was so surprised! lol
This summer I'm going to bring her to the flea market for the first time. My brother (her Dad) isn't thrilled about that! Too bad! lol
I'm happy to see that you're making cute things and doing well Dorothy!

The background for your blog is so beautiful! You always manage to find such pretty pictures and patterns to decorate your blog.
I hope we'll be able to have Easter Sunday in the garden; it should be warm and sunny enough, but one never knows with April!

I just bought a new hot glue gun, my old one wore me out using it. It was a mini-mini!

Such cuteness!! Some days the hot glue gun and I get along ...and some we don't! Lol. ~They're tricky sometimes! Love your cute wing man!! :) Happy new week!! xo Holly

I bet if you try the dual temp glue gun you might have less burns its gets hot enough on the lower temp. Have fun Creating~

I hear you on the glue gun. I think there is something wrong with my last batch of glue sticks. They are so "stringy"! I love all your Easter crafting and your hutch decorations are adorable.

Like all above I too have had finger burns from the glue gun! Love your Easter decor, but I'm especially interested in the spray painted tins! Can't wait to see what you do with those!!

Everything looks so cute. Tell Ms. Wilma, and Bam Bam, hello from Coco. We love you all.

Oh yeah, I always keep a small container of water nearby, it does help to immediately stick the burnt finger into it :) ...
What a sweet wing man you have double the love now.

I just love Ms. Wilma and Bam Bam! When our grand fur babies come to visit we have a total of 5 doxies running around! Oh the noise they can make! So much fun! I just love your Easter crafting!
Happy Spring,
Love and hugs,
Lynn and the wienee ranch gang


I usually burn a finger or two also! Love your spring wreath. The yellow flowers are so happy. I just saw the cloche you made for Holly and it's Awesome! It was a great swap.

Looks like you've been busy. So many pretty decorations. Your wingman looks happy to be part of it all. Your wreath very fetching.
