Wood You Like to Craft - Candlestick Rabbits

First of all let me say I SO wish this post was announcing the birth of our new baby. But alas, here it is only one day from my due date and still no baby. It really doesn't seem fair that I still have to go all the way to my due date (or later! GRR!) with my 5th baby. I guess since this is my last pregnancy, I should just enjoy it, right? Yeah right! I've been 'enjoying' it for 9 months now. This is ridiculous!!

Last month (although it seems like yesterday) I made the "No Soliciting" sign for the craft group "Wood You Like to Craft?". I don't think I did a very good job explaining it all, so here's a little about it from their site -

"Wood you like to Craft? is a bloggers craft group.  We have gathered four fun blogs that have a love for wood crafts.  Each month we will be creating one project selected by the "host."  Then each of the other bloggers will take a turn showing their variation of the same craft."

I love it because as much as I dream about being able to sew, it's still so intimidating to me, and wood, paint, and tools are tons of fun to work with and there's so many ways to change things up a little. Plus it actually motivates me to make things. I have a list a mile long of all the crafts I'd like to make someday, but this forces me to get it done. And I love that!!

This post shows the fabulous original plus the variations all the others made. You really should take a quick peak. It's amazing what they all did!

Here's what I came up with. It was a lot cuter in my mind but I'm still pretty proud of it. ;)

Easter Bunny with Eggs

Didn't realize when I was making them that my piano would now be covered in candlesticks... I think I have some rearranging/new decorations to come up with.

Maybe one day I'll learn how to take good pictures. You know with the right lighting, angles, etc. Until then. Oh well.

First, my 5th waited until exactly her due date too. I think it's their way of saying "I'm the end, remember?" Good luck with the new little one, hope it all goes very smooth and healthy.

Second, super cute rabbit! I love that you did one rabbit and eggs for all the rest. SO cute, what a fun display. Thanks for playing along...

I love your Bunny and eggs! I'm glad you explained the competition, I've heard about it, but wasn't sure exactly what it was. I'm like you, I prefer wood crafts over sewing as well!

How exciting to have a new baby in your home soon. Hang in there! :)

Very cute! Love the little eggs with ribbons. I hope you are home holding your baby by now. I see you have four boys, what did you have? I have four boys too. :)
