Easter Eggs

Happy Sunday
Today, I worked on some Easter eggs. I had a few wooden eggs and a few paper mache. I enjoyed decorating my eggs and thinking about Easters from my past. My Mom always made us Easter eggs. We always dyed them and decorated them and then.....we hunted for them.! We also had candy eggs and easter baskets with Easter grass. As we got older, she always sent us (and still does) a chocolate Easter Bunny.

My mom (MaMa) was like that....every holiday...she would do some kind of craft and decorations. I remember making countless Ghost Trees for Halloween. We used old branches and made "Kleenix" ghosts and hung them from the tree. She made wreaths for Christmas out of some kind of receipt cards. She decorated the house to the max for Christmas. She always helped us with our Valentines boxes for school and all those Valentines! My Mom....she was a good Mom and still is...No wonder I'm so crafty.....that is the environment I grew up in. Love you Mama and Thank You!

I like to reuse and recycle everything people discards.
I see something "new" and creative.
I see beauty.

Your MaMa rocks. She helped make you the creative person you are today. I wish somebody would send me a chocolate Easter bunny!

Hey Mom and Rhea,
Do you remember the fuzzy Easter Bunnies in the back of my mustang full of jelly beans and what happened to them? Heehee

You eggs are EGGCEPTIONAL! Sorry, couldn't help myself. I have fond memories of creating with Mom too, when I was a kid. And now, I try to pass them along to my children. Happy Tuesday!
