Silk Tie Easter Eggs

When I was a little girl, my favorite thing to do at Easter was color eggs with my sister.
Even then I would try to create something unique by drawing with markers, my own design.

We would sit for hours thinking about how "cool" the next one would be.

Last week she said I have an idea for decorating Easter eggs this year

and she handed me some directions to look at

these are going to be so "cool" to do! You should do them and put them on your blog



She was my inspiration for this creation


A more mature look than our scribbled designs of our youth



with patterns of whimsy and bursting colors




Funny.....we never cared about cracking them open and eating them.

....we never hid them to hunt later

....we did them to ewww and ahhhhh over

whether it was markers, food coloring, stickers or mod podge in later years, we wanted to be in awe of what we created

we were proud of our little eggs

I was blessed to have my sister to make things with. Someone to understand me. No judging, no competing, just cheering each other on.

And then we built our Easter display for all to see



Aren't they so "cool" and colorful?

of course I will give you the tutorial.......
