Baby chicks, bunny ears and egg shaped treats - this is a little mixed media canvas that I'll be giving to my very special niece in lieu of chocolate this Easter....I'm sure her hippity-hoppity friend will be leaving plenty of chocolate treasures, so I decided to make her something to keep beyond the last of the tinsel wrappings.
In addition to visiting my family later this weekend, sharing in precious cuddles, catch ups and adventures, I've been blessed with two days of 'simply me' time.
You see Captain V and the Gifts have departed for various sporting and social endeavours, leaving Luke and I to enjoy two days of uninterrupted peace....sigh, it's been bliss and I'm truly grateful for the break.
As much as I love Captain V and the kids, I've come to realise just how much of an introvert I really am.
This time alone has been truly recharging, I haven't once been lonely or felt the need for company, in fact the solitude sparked my creativity this afternoon, resulting in this gift for my niece.
So this weekend as my days have unfolded I've been able to count my blessings, and the gift of solitude.
No matter where you are over this Easter break, I hope that you are blessed to share a warm hug and a giggle with someone you love, some quiet time for reflection...and perhaps a treat or two as well.
This post will be added to the big basket of 'gratefuls' over at my friend Bronwyn's place, she's gathering them there just for us - thanks Bron.
I've also shared this at Kirsty's 'Our Creative Spaces' link up, if you've popped over for a peek- welcome!
