YA...it is Spring!

I thought I would add a new Spring feel to my blog with a cute new banner...


Now I can move on to the new season. :)

Easter is coming fast. I literally do not know where the time is going. I have been the busiest I have ever been in about a year and a half of merchandising so economically speaking, I hope that is a good sign of things to come. I wanted to start to get to a litte Easter decorating so I thought I would drop by and give an Easter egg project.

Last year I did a little Mod Podge on some eggs and have seen other versions of this project, and they turned out really well...so here I am to share my take. :)

I love all of the pretty fancy paper napkins that are on the market. Whenever I see them and see a print or pattern that strikes my fancy, I pick them up. At just a few dollars a package and all of the great prints for paper crafts ~ they are a good investment.

Pretty for Spring...

I try to pick patterns that have nice objects for cutting and pasting. Anything goes really...so no rules. I cut out the shape as close as possible for the look I was going for.

You can see I chose the butterfly here....

I did take real eggs and blow out the centers, rinse them out and dry. The better paper napkins such as these, will be 2~ply (at least). Just pull apart the top layer with the print and cut out. This is all you need. These can then be stored and made keepsakes. Decorated eggs to keep ~~ I like it! :)

Garden eggs for you ~~ Have a wonderful Easter. :)
