Hippity-Hoppity Happity Easter!

24 Apr

Happy Easter one and all! I hope you have a lovely Sunday, whether you’re celebrating the holiday or not.

Wanna know how I got in the Easter mood? Arts and crafts, o’ course!

I made Easter egg cakes:

But since the only food colorings in the cupboard were blue and green, some of them ended up resembling alien eggs. Oh well.

I made a book-page egg wreath, inspired by the one found on Away With Words:

Whew! I happen to consider myself something of a savvy crafter, but this was one HARD project. I’ve already announced that this decoration will be enjoyed for a little while after the Big E-Day–I worked too hard to only enjoy it for one day of the year!

I hope you’re refueling with some family time or sunshine time or lazy Sunday time! Don’t forget–today, your chocolate consumption should increase like bunnies.

    I will certainly take your advice and increase my chocolate consumption! I do also hope that my thesis proposal writing production increases… yup! Working on Easter Sunday 🙂 Not so bad really, distracts from the lack of family, sunshine, and a peaceful pick-nick type lifestyle that others enjoy!

    Love your wreathe! You should be proud 🙂

    I so admire your energy with crafts. I have little time for it. Ah but someday maybe.

    Your wreath looks great. I’m glad my post inspired you, but I was surprised to hear it was so hard to make. Was it because of the shape of the eggs? I love the wreath and hope to try one myself sometime soon. ~ Olivia

      Thanks! I’m pretty proud of it!
      Well, I couldn’t seem to grasp the technique for gluing the paper on the eggs that Lemon Tree Creations used. It looked fairly straight-forward but I couldn’t make an egg their way that wasn’t grotesquely bumpy. In desperation, I ended up doing most of my eggs by individually gluing strips of paper. As you can imagine, it took a looooong time and a lot of patience. I was really bummed that I seemed to be the only crafter who attempted this and had problems, but all’s well that ends well–I love how it turned out!
      Glad you stopped by! I love your blog!

    Hi! I tried the technique from lemon tree creations as well and had a hard time with it, but got the hand of it eventually. It took a LONG time, but I am SO happy with the end result!! Hopefully no family members ask for one for themselves, I don’t know if I have the energy for another one! Here’s my post about it: http://aristocraftgirls.com/book-page-egg-wreath-great-alternative-to-a-typical-easter-decoration/
