98 Happy Hippity Hop!

1

We're taking a long weekend off here for the Easter break (we're working on a new website with hopes of getting a bit more done with the extra day tucked in there). So we're bidding you farewell early with a few links and this cute little picture tutorial (see more below) sent to our e-mail from the folks at Present&Correct. Happy wishes for your Easter and Passover break. 





We're heading over here later to learn how to make some marshmallow peeps! Care to join us?

High/low Easter party. Which one do you like?

West coast applications close Friday at Renegade.

Loving this free (April calendar) desktop wallpaper from the Free People blog.

And I saw lots of rabbits hopping around here.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Karey said...

so, the first time reading this post, i noticed the polka-dots looked awkward. the second time through, i noticed there's no dots in the last picture. cute, but photo-shopped. :)

this is GREAT!

Cheryl Oz said...

P&C said...

Make sure you dry out your egg overnight, the rest is pretty straightforward.
We had to do a spot of retouching but only on request from the eggs agent. We took out a few pimples, wrinkles and we thinned the egg down a bit. She was at least a day past her sell by date.
Happy Easter!

what a brilliant idea

Kim Carney said...

I didn't go down the "real egg" road on my egg invitation, way back when. One plastic egg. The invitation is made of one very long strip of accordian folded paper, 3 pieces that I pieced together and glued on the inside of the plastic egg. Very fun, but a little expensive to mail. ;)

She was at least a day past her sell by date.

BWAA HA HA!

You crack me up! What an eggscellent idea you've given us here. I just love it - that's no yolk! I guess I will have to show my peeps - I know they will cackle at how cute this is.

Okay, I am completely sick of egg humo(u)r. This is really a super neat project.

Love it!

debbye @ The Baby Sleep Site said...

great idea!!!! My dad made eggs like this for us when we were kids. I can picture him straining as he tried to blow the yolk out of the egg! Hilarious! We never had noted inside, and tried to keep from cracking them as long as we could. I still have one egg from chilhood 30 years ago!

Hi Jan,

It's Crystal from Raincoast Books and Lilikoi Lane! I started my own blog a few months ago. I wrote a Weekly Inspiration: Easter Projects post this week and new right away that I had to include your secret message egg project. The image has stuck with me forever.

If you have a chance I'd love for you to pop by and take a look:
