Easter Preparation on Organizing and DIY party
Organizing and making DIY projects can be common practice for many people before a holiday.
We always make Easter eggs. I’m going to share some of our Easter pictures from 2005. The triplets were five years old and Tim & Drew were 13 and 14 yrs old. They still enjoyed coloring eggs too. Can you tell which one I did? lol
The dates on the pictures aren’t right, not sure what happened with my camera back then.
Easter morning – the kids did an Easter egg hunt outside in the yard and then had to find their hidden Easter baskets.

Easter Ideas from Pinterest!
I love finding fun things on pinterest!
There are some of the cutest ideas for Easter floating around out there! Who doesn’t love bunnies and all the spring colors. I saw this idea from Pinterest and thought it was SO cute!
Make a Peep S’More.. at home! You use your typical graham crackers and Hershey chocolate bars – but you add a Peep for the Marshmallow (after all it is marshmallow). You put just the bottom half (1 cracker, chocolate and Peep) in the microwave for about 8-12 seconds I think. I know marshmallows really puff up huge in the microwave. I can’t wait to try this with the kids!

Lori found the Peep S’mores on Pinterest and she put another spin on them. What a neat idea this is! She made up Peep S’More packs for her kids parties at school. She got the little bags and then she printed up the instructions and put on the back. Hopefully the kids will wait until they get home to open and make them, rather than opening and just eating all the ingredients out first! I LOVE this idea!
You can find this darling idea at My Wood Spoon
Isn’t this cupcake darling? So simple, yet looks so awesome! I first saw just the backside shot of the bunny in the cupcake. When I went to the post I found this pic with the front of the bunny done up too. It is a blog written in spanish, but some awesome recipe. Worth hitting the translator for.
You can find this idea at Cupcake Perfecto.

Holiday Decoration Storage
Is Your House A Mess At Holiday Time?
Storing Holiday Decorations
What do you do with all those Thanksgiving, Christmas decorations, Halloween ghost and goblins, Easter baskets, New Years Eve and 4th of July decorations? They can take up a lot of storage space (especially Christmas if you are anything like me). But stores are gearing up and selling a lot more decorations for all holidays and it is easy to jump into the decorating phase. I saw a house this Halloween that had more decorations and blow up characters and lights than you usually see at Christmas.
**You need to make sure you have the room to store them if you buy them.
Clear Colored Plastic Containers work best.
I suggest that you look for the clear colored containers they have out for that holiday. I think these are great!! I can go down and immediately find my Halloween decorations because they are the ones in the orange and black (clear orange) containers. Of course they are still labeled..but it makes it so easy. My Easter containers are pink and Christmas is red and green. Again I still go for the clear over solid non-see through bins. So if you can’t find the colored clear ones, then just get clear. Being able to see what is in the at a glance is time saving!
So before you buy any more decoration, make sure you have the room to store them, then find clear colored bins to store each separate holiday in. Still label it and getting out decorations will become a very simple thing!
If you realize that you do not have the storage space for the decorations, that you have decorations in many different areas of your home (due to lack of adequate storage)… then what you more than likely need to do is to sort out your holiday decorations into what you really need each year and what you haven’t used in several years.
