Sitting Pretty

Can you just imagine how eggs-cited I got when I stumbled upon these adorable chocolate hens for Easter??? Picture me in World market looking for a little candy egg to fill a tiny chicken shaped basket and spotting these bright gorgeous foil wrapped girls sitting pretty on a shelf....*squeal*  OK maybe you are wondering what all the hub bub is about chickens??? I along with several other ladies belong to a group call the "hen house crafters" we are a close knit group that meets once a week to craft ,eat lunch, and do fun things! So now you see why I flipped.....I knew I had found the perfect Easter gift for the hens!

You may recognize these pretty little berry baskets, aren't they super cute in shades of berry?? I love how perfectly the chickens fit, and still have plenty of room for the truffle eggs that came in the package. Of course I did sample one  {or two} to make sure the chocolate was yummy....and trust me it was gift worthy! :D

I used the Teresa Collins Craft Room Exclusive Easter basket cartridge To cut out these little egg shaped tags, I inked the edges and stamped a greeting in a berry shade and coated the entire egg with crystal effects and let the glitter flow! I love the vintage feel of a glitter covered tag! So darling!

The hens were thrilled with these little baskets, and it was a joy for me to make them smile...the way they make me smile all the time, it's another small way for me to express how much they mean to me...and I always relish the chance to give a gift, especially at Easter!! {Oh the love of packaging and giving a gift.....its my weakness! }

I may never find these adorable chicks again, but for this Easter I'm pretty happy I did! If you still need to whip up some quick Easter treat baskets the berry basket is fast and easy, or give these
carrot patch boxes a try, maybe even one of these tomato containers!
