Dollar Store Personalized Easter Baskets!!!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Guys, I am seriously over the moon excited about these cute little Easter baskets I made for the kiddos this year. 
And you’ll never in a million years believe where it all started. 
Okay….so, yea, maybe you will…
Because somehow tons of amazing projects stem from this store. 
But seriously, it all went down at the Dollar Store. 
They had some way cute organization buckets on an end cap that caught my eye. 
I didn’t actually buy any of them when I first saw them but I kept thinking about them. 
And thinking about them.
Like, I think they may have appeared in a couple dreams. 
But nonetheless, I went back with visions of Easter cute-ness dancing in my crafty/weird brain. 
Check out these 1$ adorable Easter baskets I was able to create: 
Aren’t they the cutest?? 
I had way too much fun making a girly one & then a more boy-ish one :)
Here’s the cute bins I picked up at the Dollar Store: 
I got green for little man and blue was the girl-iest color they had. 
Complete supply list: 
*Dollar Store Buckets
*Scraps of ribbon/fabric
*Vinyl (I used white) but stickers would work too 
*Washi Tape
*White Eggs (.99 cents at Hobby Lobby) 
Besides the buckets & white eggs (which were not technically necessary), I had everything on hand which led me to my $1 Easter baskets. 
First things first, they needed a little more personality. 
I pulled out my Cricut and some white vinyl and added some fun monograms. 
I used a scallop frame for sweet girl & an oval for little man. 
Then I just cut out various sized circles to add some dots around the rest of the bucket.
Easy peasy. 
Look how much cuter they are with a fun mongram!!
But it couldn’t stop there!!
I took scrap ribbon & fabric and tied them around the handles of the bucket. 
Sweet girl got pops of pink and little man got more yellows & greens. 
Now for something cute to go inside. 
I loved the white eggs from Hobby Lobby because they were 1. cheap and 2. a blank canvas. 
All they needed were some fun colors of washi tape which just so happened to have gone on sale over at Pick your Plum & I had the perfect colors on hand!!
I did stripes on a few and then completely covered others. 
Just until I had plenty to fill those cute baskets. 
I added some raffia to the bucket & popped the eggs in. 
Instant gorgeousness :)  
Here’s the sweet kiddos finished baskets, complete with washi-taped eggs!!
Ready for some easter eye candy? 
I know it’s your favorite part :)  

What do you think?? 
Are you as in love with these cheap & way-fun versions of easter baskets?

Do you have some little ones in your life that would love a colorful easter bucket too? 
I hope you guys are having a fabulous week!!

It’s spring break around here for my little family but not for me :/ 

But we’re still managing to have lots of fun… just wait until I show you what we did in our garden this weekend!!! 
Happy Monday, friends :)

      It’s April the 12th, 2015 (by Pope’s calendar). Pope celebrates April 5th,2015 (by Pope’s calendar). Jewish Passover is from April 3rd until April 11th, 2015 (Pope’s calendar).
      I celebrate “(Orthodox) Christ’s Resurrection (Pascha)”. Do you know what happened to Arius for preaching against the truth?
      His intestines fell out.
      1st day celebrates Resurrection.
      7th day celebrates Creation.
      Resurrection > Creation. Resurrection should always be celebrated after Jewish Passover.
      Christ was resurrected on April 1st.
      That’s why Jews came up with April fool’s day to discredit it. John the Baptist was beheaded on 9/11.
      That’s why the Twins were “pulled” on 911.
      Holy Tradition of Orthodox Church says that Christmas is on 25th of January by old calendar.
      Pope moved the calendar.
      Orthodox celebrate on 7th of January (Pope’s calendar),
      but 25 by Old Calendar (Orthodox Church’s calendar).
      Jesus created the world in March.
      March = 1
      April = 2
      May = 3
      June = 4
      July = 5
      Aug = 6
      Sept = 7
      Oct = 8
      Nov = 9
      Dec = 10
      Jesus incarnated in March.
      Add 9 months.
      And you get Christmas date.
      Pope is a heretic. Don’t follow him.
      Ecumenism has 263 heresies.
      Each heresy leads to hell.
      Jesus said that you have to drink His blood.
      All people have soul, body, and spirit.
      In animals, blood substitutes soul.
      That’s why you’re forbidden to drink animal blood.
      Animals don’t have spirit.
      You’re forbidden to drink human blood (like during blood transfusion) because sins transfer.
      You’re told to drink blood of Jesus (because He’s sinless) so that your sins are forgiven.
      Dogs are not allowed in your home and your church because the Holy Spirit will leave.
      One can receive mark of the beast because of cats; so, stay away from cats.
      Give to charity in the name of Archangel Michael; he rescues people from hell twice a year (or brings them up a level, that is, to a level with less punishment; eventually, people are freed). Feed the pigeons; when pigeons bow down, people are saved from hell.
      JW’s messiah is Yosef who was crucified on a pole in 1066.
      JW’s leaders are Freemasons. Freemasonry was created by Sionists.
      JW’s await a king aka antichrist. Why? Because Jesus will come back to end the flying antichrist’s rule when this antichrist conceives a thought in his evil mind that he 666-isotope-ray-lasered everyone.
      So, when antichrist comes (in a few years), JW’s will welcome him. 666 is not forgivable; it leads to permanent hell. 666 is given with World Passport with no name on it (grey plastic card). Police 666 people on highways. Food stores and prisoners 666 people too. Reject vaccines. Don’t go into UFO to be healed by demons. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666. Forgive me.
      Jesus is 176 cm tall!
