Big Easter Website Update!

Hippity Hoppity....Easter is certainly on its way! And I also realized that the Easter section of my website needed some fun new additions! Most of the characters I put on my website are for sale as open edition pieces, made to order.

It was tough figuring which ones to add! To decide, I gathered up a bunch of the designs I recently completed and then decided which ones I would be able to make again (many pieces are on of kind). Then I decided which ones were my favorites, and that's how I make the cut! Whenever I post new items on my website, I also retire a lot of designs. Sometimes it's because I'm running out of a certain supply I need to make them (the bunny with the giant character will fall into that category sooner rather than later!), or it might be that I decided that I'm tired of making a certain design, or sometimes it's because I decide that a certain item is too time consuming to make at its current price and I would rather retire it than raise the price.

So, I'll quit blabbering on and introduce the new additions now!

These Easter girls love their bunnies!

Flower girls are a constant favorite! And I just love making them! Best of all...my little sister collects the forgotten and outcast flowers from the floors of the local craft store. She just bats her cute little lashes and the people at the store just can't refuse her! Of course she keeps her favorites to herself. :)

This chickie girl is what I want to look like once we move to upstate NY next year, when I can finally get a flock of my very own chickens!

The rose cat girl is potentially my favorite cat girl to date!

These pretty ladies are up for entertaining with their juggling skills or with their adorable Easter pets!

All of these characters and more are available on my website at www.vintagebycrystal.com. :)

Your little bunnies are so sweet! The whole process seems simple, but your special touch makes them truly unique! What a special edition to Easter they are. ....perhaps a little flock of sheep might join the party? and Congratulations on the nationwide engagement!

Oh my goodness, those are absolutely adorable. Congratulations on your show with Martha Stewart--how wonderful!

I found you through Google Analytics. Someone came from your site to my Etsy shop, where I sell recycled clothes.

Best wishes to you. I love your products and I'm going to visit your shop.
