We’ve got eggciting news today and two Easter Specials! Here’s a quick rundown:

– Purchase any pail from our regular line (we used the WHITE pail), and receive a free packet of our Junior stickers. This will help you create the adorable bunnies that we’ve posted this week! Just type in “EASTER” in the comment section at check-out and tell us if you would like the Junior Girl (pink) stickers or the Junior Boy (brown) stickers (a $4.50 value). Special ends April 15th.

– AND, be among the first five to place an order and we will GIVE YOU the bunny eggcessory props from our photo shoot (limit one per order). That includes the bunny ears, hand-made nose & whiskers, and the bunny tail. We put magnets on the back of the nose & tail, so they attach right to the pail.

If you’d like to make your own “Peter Cotton Pail” to use as an Easter decoration or Easter basket, here’s what you need to do:

1) Create a child’s face using the Junior sticker pack which is included free with your order (between now and April 15th).

2) Be one of the first five to place an order and we will include a pack of Bunny Eggcessories (limit one per order). Or, you can easily make them yourself – we purchased our bunny ears at Joann’s, but we’ve also seen them in the dollar section at Target.

3) For the nose, take a white pipe cleaner and cut it into three pieces. Gather the pipe cleaners in the center and hot glue them onto a pom-pom. While the glue is still hot, attach a small magnet to the backside.

4) For the tail, just hot glue a magnet to a white pom-pom and attach to the pail (you can also use a large cotton ball).

That’s it! This also makes a simple and fun DIY craft to do with your kids. After Easter is over, just take off your bunny eggcessories and use your Persona Pail throughout the year!

As you can tell from the photographs, we continue to find FUN new ways to use the Persona Pail! Not sure if you can see through our clever disguise, but underneath those cute whiskers and bunny eggcessories, you’ll discover our very own Persona Gift Pail. These adorable bunnies make great Easter decorations and perhaps you can even start a new tradition and fill an Easter Pail instead of an Easter Basket!

On Wednesday, not only will we show you how to create your own Peter Cotton Pail, we’ll also offer a fantastic Easter special AND provide you with free Easter printables! Hope the pics below put a little hop in your step this Monday morning!

HAPPY FRIDAY! We’ve pulled together a few good luck fillers for you!

1) Turn your pail into a Pot ‘O Gold! Just add some gold-foiled chocolate coins and luck will surely be on your side! Pick them up at your local candy store or purchase on-line at Nifty Nut House.

2) Everyone loves a GOOD FORTUNE in a fortune cookie! 

3) These shamrock cookies taste as good as they look! From the amazingly talented Renee Arwood, owner of Bees Knees Creative. You must check out her website to see more designer desserts!

4) Start saving pennies and use the Persona Pail to hold your fortune!

Although we think of “the luck of the Irish” every year in March with the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day (and its a very good excuse to celebrate!), you can also wish a colleague, friend or loved one good luck throughout the year. With a new job, promotion, new home, graduation…you name it! That was the idea behind the creation of our O’ Lucky Day Persona…what would be a good name for her…maybe Lady Luck Lucy? (Whether she’s playing cards, Bunko or shopping a great sale, Lady Luck Lucy collects 4 leaf clovers and always has a little luck on her side.)

We used the GREEN pail kit to create LUCY; but you can also use the ORANGE pail to get a true Leprechaun/Irish feel. Just download the free printable note card and add a fun hair accessory or hat. Melinda found a cute jeweled bauble and pinned it on top of a green bow.  Check back later in the week for LUCKY pail filling ideas!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so we’ve found 6 ways to say “I Love You” AND satisfy your sweet tooth!

1) Beautiful cake pops by Cocoa Confections in your choice of cake flavor. Order comes in a dozen cake pops, each wrapped in a cello bag with a twist tie.

2) Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie Blog has come up with this brilliant idea to serve hot chocolate and convey Valentine’s wishes at the same time. With baker’s twine, edible markers and of course, marshmallows, you can easily make these special edition “tea bags.” Our favorite sentiment is “You’re Hot” – very clever!

3) These “sweet eats” by Better Homes and Garden are so simple and we love the fact that the recipe requires no baking!

4) Everyone LOVES Rice Krispie treats! Here’s a new twist on an old favorite by Skip to my Lou.

5) Love these Crescent Hearts using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and red sugar! See recipe here.

6) Last but not least, this Valentine’s Gumball Necklace is to DIY for! Created by One Charming Party, we found it through InkSpot Workshop’s post last week. Perfect to give to the sweet girls in your life or hand them out at a Valentine’s Party!
