I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Spring Wabbit in a Daisy Basket!

Today I experienced one of those eureka moments...it occurred in Hancock Fabrics...I saw the cutest little rabbits, but I really need to speak to Hancock's management team...their prices are just so out of line!! Finished my mission there and traveled straight to $ Tree...now that's what I'm talking about!

Bunny Before...

Basket Before...

Bunny After...

Basket After...

What did I do?

Bunny: Unscrew bunny head and hot glue daisies all over the plastic container.
Clean container, add Cadbury eggs and replace head.

Glue on daisies, ribbons, etc. then add blush to cheeks and ears...love it!

Basket: Add daisies all around the rim of the basket. Add a few leaves.

Make polka dot bow and tie on. Add daisy and leaves to middle of bow.

Fill basket with yellow Easter grass.

Add pink and yellow bunny suckers.

Plop in Miss Bunny!!

Mucho Bang for your six bucks!!

I made the whole thing for less than the cost of the rabbit at the fabric store!

Cute little happy for somebody who needs some cheerfulness!

Linking to the Thrifty Home's Penny Pinching Party, Inspiration Friday At The Picket Fence, Beverly's Pink Saturday and Catch a Glimpse Thursday!

Blessings and Happy Almost Spring,

That is so pretty! Great job and I agree with you Hancock's prices are way out of line, even at 1/2 price they are still to high for me. Have a wonderful day, Vicky

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Angela. I am so glad you joined us, and I hope you will continue.

Your creation is wonderful. You were so clever, and the bunny basket offers a big smile.
