Better late than never?

Last year I somehow stumbled on a cool egg decorating idea. It was too close to Easter to pull it off last year, but I filed the idea away and worked on gathering the necessary supplies so we could try it this year.

Even with all that lead time, somehow I still didn't get a blog post put together until now. Blame it on tax season and my determination to get our taxes taken care of before worrying about blogging. Oh, and the purchase of a new computer somewhere in there because Turbo Tax wouldn't even load on the old one. Not that they're filed yet-but they are done, at least, so now I can share our eggs guilt-free.

We followed the instructions here. We used blown eggs and boiled them in the bottom of a pasta pot that has a strainer insert, using the insert to hold the eggs in the water. Ours aren't as pretty as theirs, but we'll keep looking for ties and try it again next year.

  1. I saw this a few years ago too.

    We have been doing natural dyes, but this year I just let my Mom have at it with the store bought dyes etc, because I was so busy with the store!

    They had fun which is the whole point, anyway!

    Happy that your taxes are done and that you blogged!

    I miss you when you don't blog....


  2. I agree with Mrs Rabe, I miss it when you don't blog! The eggs are so cool and I'm glad I got a chance to see them, thnks for the post. I think they turned out really well and who knows what great patterns you'll find for next year!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
