Whenever we walk by the paint chip aisle, it is hard not to love all the colors we see! It justs make us smile to see all the variety of colors we have to enjoy. We almost wish we could have every color somewhere in our home because they are so beautiful!
With this egg garland you can! Grab paint strips in the colors you love and use an egg shaped template to cut eggs out and put the garland up in your home!
Another craft to do with kids! It’s rewarding for them to create and be involved in making decorations for your home! AND - it gets them away from screens of any type!!

One of the reasons we love considering Easter in February is because part of Easter is about new starts, celebrating life, feeling joy and renewal, and gratitude for the ultimate gift ever given.
Those are great things to fill your life and heart with!
Start now and let those feelings grow within you near the beginning of this year and leading into the middle of this year! What we give out is what we will receive. We hear that over and over again!
We don’t know about you, but we believe we can make a difference in this world one person at a time in a world where so many want to add contention!
Let’s all show we are done with contention by adding the giving, caring and sharing that makes this world a great place to live!
