...I PAINTED an EGG!!

S.T.I.L.L. playing catch-up from our time 'recharging' - you know the scenario...

Oh well. I know that the pile of laundry won't go anywhere without me! ...and for now, it can wait ~ more important things to do ~ like saling and egg 'painting'!! Vintage jet black glass beads... only purchase Sat morning from Rummage Sale...



Wednesday I was perusing the ads and found them rather sparse, with the only things sparking my interest being a Rummage Sale Sat. morning and a PYSANKY workshop Sat. afternoon.

After recently viewing some Ukranian decorated eggs, they have really piqued my interest, and for about the last month I have been chanting/pouting "I want to PAINT an EGG!" (though, it's not a method of 'painting' at all!).

The workshop was 3hrs.


A Perfect way to spend a rainy, dreary & windy afternoon


I completed 1 egg.


This egg is FAR FROM PERFECT!


I adore this little egg!

We were sent home with all the tools, wax and 5 packs of special dye - everything to continue on our way to make more eggs... Will I?A friend even loaned me her stash of books for ideas of patterns...
I think that I will just enjoy my little imperfect egg for a while.

And your "chanting" made me giggle. :)

Your egg is beautiful! I've always wanted to try that, just once. Are you going to make any more?
