No Bunny Knows Easter Like Nikita Bunny!

It’s a Bunny Palooza over here!  Everywhere I turn, I see bunnies!  Easter must be near to see this much Pink, but since I love Pink, I am loving it!  The only thing I was no so happy about was Mommy trying on these pink bunny ears on… ME!  That’s ok though, as we have to go through this every holiday to make them feel good as they think we are soooo cute when they play dress up on us. 

Daddy & Mommy found a really neat Easter egg decorating kit – 24k Eggs!  How cool is that?  And, it kinda goes along with how Mommy painted those plastic eggs a Metallic Gold.  Definitely a different way to dye your eggs!  I can’t wait to see how they turn out!  I think we are going to do our regular colored Easter eggs too, but we thought that we would try these neat 24k eggs out too.  It will be interesting to see which ones turn out better. 

DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that you can also personalize your Easter eggs too?  All you need are some “sticky letters” from a craft store that usually come in a sheet, and just peel the letter off the sheet, adhere it to the cooled cooked egg, then dip it in the dye.  After the egg dries, just peel off the letter and you will have a neat personalized Easter egg.  Simple enough, right? 

The neat wood bunnies that Mommy made seemed to need some additional flare, so she decided to paint the sides of the bunnies black to give it dimension, and that worked perfectly!  She is so happy with what she has done and Daddy agrees that painting the sides black makes the bunny “pop”! 

I hope that I get a new stuffed bunny as a present for Easter this year, as last year I kinda (accidentally) ripped open my EB and I might need a new one.  I still have the old EB, but his ears have seen better days.  Hopefully I can get a new one in my Easter basket since I have been a really good girl. 

As you can see, we have been really busy over here getting ready for Easter and it has been a lot of fun.  Whenever I get the chance to wear Pink, I jump at the chance, except I could do without those fluffy ears.  Who needs a second set of ears anyways? 

 

The Chicken That Laid The Golden Eggs

It has been a really great week here in Cleveland, OH as we have had the best weather you could only dream of for March, and since the weather has been cooperating with temps in the high 70’s to 80’s, Mommy decided to pull out her Evolv Jigsaw and some wood and made some Easter crafts. 

First, she had an idea to create some “different” Easter eggs for decoration and bought a bag of those plastic eggs that you would fill with jelly beans for $1.99, and then she picked up a can of Rust-oleum Metallic Gold spray paint.  She opened them up and lightly sprayed each egg gold and after they were dry, she placed them in a nice decorative container with some moss.  Instant Easter charm for the table! 

 

Next, she took out some wood and cutout two different bunny shapes that she drew by hand and traced them on the wood.  Since her Evolv Jigsaw works beautifully and cuts through the wood like butter, she was able to make a stack of these bunnies with ease.  She then sanded them and spray painted them with Rust-Oleum Candy Pink.  The one bunny design actually stands on its own, so it was a perfect addition to a table top or bookshelf, the bunny face will hang on the front door adorned with a pink bow. 

So what do you think of Mommy’s Easter crafts?  As you can see, it has been a very crafty week over here and since the creativity has been flowing, Mommy decided to have some fun with some of my photographs too. 

I will be heading back outside later to soak up the sun and play with my toys!  How will you be spending your weekend?  What plans do you have?
