More Easter Bonnets



Aaah, Thanks Jojoebi! I tried resizing this morning, and there was no trouble uploading! ( I love the idea of a disc jockey costume!)
So, here are the missing bonnet pictures! The kids all had a pony Easter egg hunt to go to over the holidays, with an Easter Bonnet competition. Needless to say, only extrovert middle daughter wanted to wear one, and she spent a whole day carefully constructing and decorating two enormous hats, one for her, and one for her long suffering pony Foggy. She had her sights firmly set on the prize, a large chocolate egg, especially as I had announced that we were going to have a low chocolate Easter, and she was feeling rather hard done by. Her effort paid off, and she came home with said chocolate egg.

I also had a new delivery of cards. I finally bit the bullet, and ordered a large batch of these from a professional printers. I could only afford to print three designs in bulk, so I chose my bestsellers - The Botanist, Hanging out With The Chooks, and The Ancient Cross. I now have a couple of hundred of each, so I can try wholesaling some to local venues ( at least, that is the plan!). I'm really pleased with the way they came out. No more putting stickers on the back!

Sounds like your children had fun over the Easter weekend with the pony egg hunt and Easter bonnet competition. It brings back good memories when I had my pony over 30years ago now. I do hope you had a good weekend aswell? The cards look fantastic, I hope you sell them all!
Look forward to your next post.
Warm wishes
Julie
