Colorful Eggs

I've always loved decorating eggs. I mean, who doesn't? Normally I just decorate them the "normal" way by dying them. This year, however I tried something new: Drawing with sharpies on eggs.

Shaylynn gave me the idea (check out her eggs, they are gorgeous!!). So, Easter Sunday I blew some eggs and grabbed some sharpies. Let me tell you, it is addicting.

The eggs I decorated are mixed in with our Ukrainian eggs.

Be careful though...They are delicate. As I was drawing on this one I dropped it and I grabbed it so hard I smashed it. Ain't I smart?













This one is my favorite. It took me over an hour. I smeared the marker a lot to create a marbled look. Here are some work in progress shots:









Well, that's all folks!
