The Easter Bunny Called, He Wants His Eggs Back

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!
Love, Nikita

 

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?
