Here comes Peter Cottontail!

Hippity hoppity..Easter is almost here. Let the egg hunts begin! I wonder if the Easter Bunny would fill some plastic eggs with overdyed floss for me instead of chocolate. I could really use the floss more. Chocolate is great but I need to lose pounds not gain them. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter. If you need a new project to work on after the holiday, check out these new and coming soon ideas.

You will not be able to purchase online so look around and make a list and let the shop order for you. Go to and click on "general" viewing to start your shopping. Remember, this show does not start until the 19th so anything listed now is from the last show and will not have the most current releases.
