S is for Spring and Sheep!

Hello my friends,
I was inside all day crafting with a group of fun and very talented ladies.
 
It wasn't until I walked outside at the end of the day that I realized that we were having beautiful Spring weather.
 
Perfect for sharing our spring time crafts!
 
My friend, Joanne was the instructor for our sweet little peat pot Easter baskets.
 
When I glittered the letter 'S', I had the word Spring in mind.  After wards I realized that it also stood for Sheep.
 
 Spring+Sheep= Sweet!
 
My mama sheep has a party hat to celebrate Spring.
 
 
Each basket hi-lighted their creators style.
 
Ever single one was just delightful!


I just knew you would want to see each of them up close and personal.  :)

(Paula's)
 
Aren't they the sweetest?
and
That's not all.  Afterwards Paula (Pollyanna Reinvents) showed us how to make a sheep using sculpty clay.
 


This is my little fella.  So fun, I want to make an entire herd!
 
We gave him matchbook legs, baked him in the oven at 150 for about 30 minutes then covered him with warm and natural.
 

 
I am loving this baaaad boy!  (hee-hee)
 
Looking forward to next months craft day!
 
hugs,
Jann
 
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

What a fun project. I need to find some classes or groups like yours. But for now, I am letting my hand rest and not doing any crafts.

And, I just finished visiting everyone who linked up - just in time for another party tomorrow!

Each one of those baskets is darling, screaming all things pretty and Spring. I can just see, in my mind's eye all you ladies having so much fun crafting these. Your sheep is very sweet. Now 'she' is a sculptor as well as a stylist extraordinaire!! =)
