Who wouldn't want to be a part of some linky love and if you know me you know I love to give!! So, thanks heidi, not only for today, but for all of your humorous comments and fun posts. You crack me up and keep me coming back for more!

So, some of you might be asking? How do I get my hands on this?

You'll have multiple chances to enter...I'm in the mood to be generous.

First, leave me a comment with an answer to this question: What is your favorite Easter tradition?
Second, leave me a separate comment telling me that you blogged about today's Friday Freebie and link back to my site using my brand new button! (you'll find it on the left hand side at the top)
Third, leave me a comment telling me that you grabbed that cute new button and placed it on your blog's sidebar.

What a nice giveaway!

I am already a follower and my favorite Easter tradition is attending the Easter Services at my church with family on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. :) I also like getting my kids cute Easter outfits. :)

Kasey said...

OKAY her I go...my favorite easter tradition? Well every Easter after church my family along with some others from my parents church stay afterwards and we take family pictures of each other. It started out with my parents, my sister, brother, and me. It has grown to 16 of us now (spouses and 8 grandchildren). It's fun to look back and see how the family has grown and how we each have changed!

I would say my favorite Easter tradition is hiding Easter eggs. I did it as a little girl and now I get to watch my little girls find the eggs. Also, going to church with my family.

Our town hosts an Easter egg hunt for the kids on the grounds of a beautiful inn. It is so fun to see the kids running around gathering eggs. The Easter bunny visits and there is face painting and popcorn. It also gives parents to chat with people they may of not seem all winter. We do it every year no matter the weather, rain, shine or waist high snow!

I'm so happy that spring is here! This stuff is so cute, what a great Spring bonus!

I am a fairly new follower and think your blog is lots of fuN!

My favorite Easter tradition is going to the Egg hunt in my mom's small town. Everyone meets at the library and they have an Easter bunny in costume who leads them to the park for the hunt. After they hunt eggs everyone meets back at the library for cookies and juice and a Easter bonnet contest.

Dawn said...

My favorite Easter tradition is we go to my sister's for dinner. After dinner, we have a huge egg hunt outside for the kids. My husband and brother in law hide eggs everywhere and it's so funny to watch the kids find them. The older ones know the easy ones are for the little ones and they are so good in leaving them. The kids love it too and look forward to it.

Dawn said...

I'm a follower and forgot to add it's so nice of you to do this!

Heidi @ Tayterjaq's Rebels said...

I really enjoy when the kids do the egg hunts. We do separate ones for the older two and younger two. Each child knows how many eggs they have to find and what is on their eggs (letter or number to differentiate between children). We make the ones for the older two really hard. One year it took them over an hour to find them all. Lots of fun for all.

Lauren said...

My favorite Easter tradition is hunting easter eggs! We continued to do this in my family even as adults! My dad always hid one "money" egg for each of us so we were motivated to hunt even if just for a dollar!

I am a follower now...I didn't realize I wasn't before. I thought I had hit all the Heidi's.
I know you must have thought I forgot about the whole pay it forward thing but I did finally get something out in the mail. I just couldn't decide what to send that wouldn't be stupid. Hope you like it!

Katie said...

How fun Heidi, and thanks for linking back to your tutorial. I hadn't seen that post before. What a good idea, quick and inexpensive yet so cute.

Tammy Williams said...

Heidi, I decided to blog about your contest for the chance to win. Thanks for the opportunity. See you tomorrow.

Kelli said...

So far my favorite Easter tradition is creating my kids' Easter baskets. My mom always put fun stuff in there that I was into at the time (magazines, nail polish...etc) so I love doing that for them.

Kelli said...

I put your cute little button on my blog.

Heidi said...

I hope to win. I love all your crafty ideas!

Kameron said...

When we got to be old enough, my brother and I would go to sunrise Easter service with my mom and afterward we would go to my grandma's house and have to hunt for our Easter basket. It was always in a really creative place (my brother's was in the basketball hoop one year). Oh and we always got really dressed up. That was my favorite part!

Kim said...

My favorite Easter tradition as a kid was finding Easter eggs.
As a mom I am excited to begin an Easter egg hunt tratition after Easter service!

Kim said...

I am heading over to put the button on my blog and write about your giveaway.

He And Me + 3 said...

Easter Egg hunts at the church & our family picture in front of the cross at church.

Angela said...

Our church does a sixty hour prayer vigil (someone is praying at the church for the sixty hours before the sunrise service on Easter). I love praying during an early morning time slot. It is so peaceful and puts me in the right mindset for Easter. I have done this five years in a row, so now it is a tradition!

Tanya from Miller Racing Family said...

What a cute giveaway! My favorite Easter tradition is that my mom buys us the peeps candy each year. My brother gets yellow and I get pink. I really don't want to pass along the tradition because you know those things are pure sugar. Thanks again for the chance to win!Have a great Friday!

Dustmite said...

Favorite Easter tradition would be that my wife (you know, the one you are hosting for) and I have tried to keep one spiritual element in the gift giving for the girls. Not just eggs and candy and fake egg laying Easter bunnies, but something with a greater spiritual meaning. Usually this is/was a trip to the Christian book store, but could be anything really.

Tanya from Miller Racing Family said...

I just became a follower, can't wait to read more from your blog! Have a great Friday!

Rhonda said...

My fave Easter tradition is resurrection eggs...very cute giveaway!!

purplemoose said...

Hey, that looks like a neat basket! Our favorite tradition is Easter story cookies. . . I'll be posting about that in a few weeks.

Shelby, Patrick and Kids said...

My favorite Easter Tradition is to cut out the shape of the Easter Bunny's foot and then shake baby powder over it so that it leaves a "print" on the carpet. I do this randomly from the front door to the table where the kids find a group gift and a clue to help find their individual baskets. I also leave some black jelly beans near the footprints as "bunny droppings." The kids love it!

Shelby, Patrick and Kids said...

Just last year I started an Easter tradition with my friends where we made "Cones of Compassion". We made decorative cones out of ribbon and scrapbook paper and filled them with little goodies. We delivered the cones to the ladies at the Center for Women in Transition. They were mini Easter baskets. It is a special memory and something I would like to do again this year!

Katie, Kevin and kids said...

Your new button is so "tweet"! I just grabbed it...now I'm headed to put it on my spot!

Selima said...
