My apologies in advance to my vegan readers; we used a lot of eggs in this crafting session. Please see my previous post for more on the egg issue. A small consolation is that no factory-farmed eggs were used: Sally bought duck eggs and was given chicken eggs by a neighbour who keeps her own birds. Also, after writing the previous post I went out and bought a vegan egg substitute. It won’t be any good for Easter crafting but hopefully I can now make cruelty-free cakes and so on. 🙂
Sally’s daughter supplied us with two kits from the States; thank you Erin. I haven’t seen this kind of kit in Ireland. There were all sorts of ways of decorating the eggs. My favourite was the wax crayon used to create “resist” designs with the dyes. I hope you enjoy the photos. You might remember the bunny ears from last year; my daughter has inherited the hoarder gene from someone (not me, obviously 😉 ).
We just had the most fabulous afternoon of crafting at Sally‘s. My daughter hasn’t taken her bunny ears off since they were made. She’s been running around outside with them on, and now she has her headphones on over the top of them.
Sally had some wonderful projects set up for us. I brought some eggs that I had managed to blow successfully for the first time ever. Sally also had some boiled eggs ready to decorate. Last week Sally and I made bases for our moss gardens out of woven willow. Today we went gathering all different kind of moss and natural objects to pile onto the bases. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed the crafting.
