Easter came a little early at our house tonight, just for fun. Impulsive me decided to make a decorated egg with a message inside for Mr Crafty. A bit of a comedy of errors but in the end it was lots of fun and all turned out quite nicely.
Here's how it went down.....
I used a drawing pin to put a little hole in this egg.
And a bigger one in the other end. Then I blew the yolk and white out from the egg.
Having no idea how to colour eggs, I just went ahead with my usual lack of planning and rolled it around in water and food dye.
It came out looking hideous. Not to mention my hands.
So I decided to paint over the top of that atrocity. Ok, still extremely unattractive.
So I moved on for a bit, to give my brain some breathing space. I found an old envelope, (looks like it has Vegemite on it) and wrote a little love note to Mr Crafty.
Cut it out, rolled it up like a scroll, and popped it inside the egg.
I'd had some time to regroup, so I dragged out some little golden book pages and chopped them up into tiny pieces and then glued them onto the egg.
Starting to look a bit better. Phew! Decided on a glass of red to calm the nerves a bit.
Ready to gift.
Mr crafty was intrigued.
And then he was a little bit chuffed.
I think I just made a tough day for someone I love just a little bit more joyous, and that fills my little heart with joy too. If you are having a break over Easter, I hope you have a wonderful rest and relax.
