Black isn't a colour you'd normally think of when you think of Easter colours. But mixed in with pastels, it can give you a modern look for your crafts. And for this years Easter cards, I did just that.

I am super excited to have partnered up with Kamik and am giving away a pair of Kamik Jennifer Rainboots!

I absolutely adore mine so I can't wait for someone else to have their own pair. Enter and please share with any friends that may need a pair of boots too!  And come check out some of Kamik's Spring Collection too!

Lots of upcycling going on in my home. Take a guess as to what I made this Easter Basket out of?

Did I mention there are also 11 other talented Canadian bloggers showcasing their Easter crafts in the post too?

DIY Veggie wash!  

Just Fill a sink halfway with lukewarm water.
Add 1 cup of white vinegar.
Mix.
Add your fruit. Don’t over fill your sink with fruit.
Soak for about 10 minutes (shorter for berries – about 2 – 5 minutes).
Rinse well.

The Result: Clean.  Fruit.

Let's talk about my endless love for this pendant lamp...
DIY Copper Pipe Icosahedron Pendant Light
http://www.thegatheredhome.com/2014/03/diy-copper-pipe-icosahedron-light.html

Based on a $2111 inspiration piece, I was able to pull off this spinoff/knockoff for just around $50 using an Ikea pendant light and copper plumbing pipe!

Stop by the blog for a detailed tutorial journey of my step by step process!

Last year I made some Easter cards using #IKEA  fabric scraps. Thought I'd share them again just in case anyone needed some crafting inspiration. +IKEA USA +IKEA Canada

It's quite amazing that I did not drink the wine before I wrapped it.

I've been using #IKEA  MALM art easel paper to wrap presents and used it for this wine bottle wrap. +IKEA USA

+SheBlogs Media Challenged 3 bloggers to Welcome Spring into their home today. So I raided the local #SheridanNurseries  and +Target and got my home ready for Spring, despite the 5 feet of snow still on the ground.
