Easter Crafts - Rain

I was thumbing through the online version of Good Housekeeping and came across these cute decorating ideas.

They have printable templates and directions at the article: Easter Paper Crafts .

There was also this video on how to make Tissue Paper Daffodils. They show them being used as a napkin holder. I think they would look lovely as the finishing touch on a gift package.


It is raining buckets here right now. That means more flash flooding in some of our area. Our home is on high ground. Many of our county and city streets / roads will have water across them. People will go around the barricades that block these areas and get stuck in the waters. In the 500 Year Flood we had back in 1994 a man decided to disregard signs and barricades and he and his family perished in the waters. Four lives unnecessarily lost. I pray that people will listen to the warnings. It only takes six inches of rushing water to sweep a car away. Tomorrow they say will be severe weather again in our area. So more flash flooding.


I'm off to have my endoscopy in a bit. I may be a bit loopy when I get home. Frank was that way for about 4 days after his endoscopy last year. It was funny... every day he asked me what the doctor said. On the third day I gave him the summary sheet the doctor gave me, so maybe I wouldn't get asked again... but the fourth day I was still asked. This was very unusual for Frank. He is usually back to normal by the afternoon. When he sorta had his colonoscopy a few months later he talked to the anesthetist and told her what happened last time, so she didn't give him as much of "the good stuff" that time.

Between being loopy and thunderstorms I may not be online for a couple of days... we'll see :-)

  1. I love the video clip...I'm going to try to make them. We have been getting some rain and with our snow starting to melt I know the river is going to rise. I pray that you all stay safe from the floods and that your test goes well.

  2. Praying that all goes well today.

  3. Oh I saw these crafts too! They are all so cute. Good luck with your endoscopy today, Zaroga. I'll be thinking of ya!

  4. Loved the little egg creatures for Easter. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow, hoping for a slow steady rain. We will see.

  5. Those are the cutest little crafts, Zaroga! Thanks for sharing!

    I hope all went well for you today. I'll miss seeing you online for a couple of days, though!

    Take care,

  6. I enjoyed the video. I too am praying all goes well and the rain subsides for your area. Take it easy and know we are all here for you.
