Last night we dyed our Easter eggs, like everyone else probably did. We used the traditional Paas pastel egg dye and we also used a new 24K Gold dye set. We made 18 colored Easter eggs for the family, 9 in the pastel color and 9 in the 24K Gold. To our amazement, the pastel ones came out so rich and beautiful in color when we took them out of the dye, but they dried differently. They did not look as nice as when we first took them out, we were bummed. We were also doing the 24K Gold kit at the same time which came with a red, yellow, and blue dye that you painted on the eggs, so you did not have to dip them. The colors were really bright and vibrant, but these are not done yet. We had to wait a little bit and give them time to dry because we still had to brush the 24K gold dye over the top of eggs. The results were outstanding! Now, I don’t even want to eat these eggs because they look so pretty, but I am sure we will today with Easter dinner. So, after looking at the 24K Gold eggs, we decided to paint the gold dye over the pastel ones too so all of our eggs would look equally beautiful. What a difference that made! All of our eggs are now shimmering (yes, shimmering) from the gold glaze. The Easter Bunny would be proud of these for sure!
Mommy also made Grandma an Easter Bunny out of wood and boy oh boy did she like it! Mommy noticed that she did not have many Easter decorations, so what did Mommy do? She made her own! She went out to the garage, pulled out the wood and designed some bunnies. Boy that Mommy is sure creative, eh? Grandma’s bunny even has a beautiful script “R” for her last name too! Just the perfect embellishment for this rabbit!
We hope all of you have the nicest Easter ever!
