This time of year, after snow and cold, there's nothing like adorable to warm your heart.
While Easter is a religious holiday on the Christian calendar, the secondary aspect exemplifies all that's perfect about spring. Spring takes us away from the bleak into sunny warmth and rebirth. Rather than stark and barren, we begin to think of vitality and life.
Though for me it doesn't quite have the magic of Christmas, there's something enduringly cheerful about Easter. Unlike that earlier celebration, where crisp and cool, lushly Victorian, or playful but traditional are the decorations and illustrations of choice, at Easter we are all drawn to breezy images of spring. Who doesn't smile at fluffy bunnies, petal soft baby chicks,
wicker baskets of decorated eggs in soft pastels and colourfully wrapped
chocolate in a variety of appropriate shapes?
When looking for graphics to use in Easter projects, whether it's for cards or invitations, completing a scrapbook, or advertising an egg hunt, I've always been partial to those "Aw... -inspiring" ones. So, if adorable is your thing too, here are some great collections.
