When I shared my “Picks of the Week” last week I was so surprised at how much you loved it so I guess I will share some of my favorites posts this week again.

Looking for a fun craft to do with Easter candy? Anna at Doll-It-Up.com shows you how to make mini candy Easter baskets. Yum!

Maxine at My Doll Best Friend has a Paper Mache Easter Basket craft you can probably do this afternoon.

Simply Ivy & Always Arizona did a beautiful photo shoot with Ivy in the excitement of Easter.

Isn’t this owl pillow from adollable dolls adorable?

If you have Maplelea dolls, the 2013 photo contest is now open – see the Maplelea site for details.
