One of my favorite things to do with my kids was to decorate Easter eggs. As the boys grew older, I confess that I was slow to give it up. What I really need is an excuse to try out some new egg-stylings.
Cruising around the blog-o-sphere, I've seen so many cool ideas that I'm having a hard time focusing on just a few - but here it goes:

How did I not think of this? I love chalkboard paint. These eggs and a basket of colored chalk would keep any kid on the planet entertained all day. This is pure brilliance.
Besides, Juggernaut loves black. This may win me some Easter brownie points.
2. Watercolored Eggs
Once again...I have enough watercolor paint to do a life sized painting of Rhode Island and yet I never considered just painting the eggs. Why, you ask? I do be stoopid sum times. The folks at Better Homes & Gardens - not so much. They're bringing their "A" game to egg decor.
In spite of those personal mental shortcomings, I'm wondering if I have time to recreate famous paintings on eggs before Easter. Every great idea deserves an upgrade and modifications.
If you've never used Washi tape, you are already missing out. I've always loved all the Duck Tape patterns and crafts, but Washi tape is even more functional with its smaller width. Much easier to handle! My Art kids used Washi tap to mark all their books and brushes; everyone had their own "design". It's perfect for giving all your supplies a personal style and an easy way to mark your territory (in an office supply sense of the word).
So, here I sit in a world of Washi tape and there are my eggs...and the two never met. But all that will change, thanks to Lovely Indeed, a fantastic blog for the creative spirits. If you love crafting, visit Lovely Indeed. The non-crafters, visit anyhow - you'll see how it's done right!
Wonder what I could do with a dozen eggs?
