Ladybird Easter Eggs

Almost didn’t make it this year. Too much to do, not enough tentacles with which to do it.

I’m bushed, well and truly, but I’m also chuffed with the result. No more chit-chat for me. Going to bed.

Happy Easter everyone!Mini Jeztyr Logo

Easter Eggs -Triumphs and Failures

Running with the purple and gold theme, I made up a few more eggs and painted them blue, graduating to white at the bottom. Then came the white vine squiggles, with round balls on the ends of white flicks.

Finally, the balls were filled with white, gold and rose gold, just to mix things up again. Gloss up with several coats of polyurethane and we’re ready for Easter.

Almost.

There are two big rules that go with making Easter Eggs.

  1. Always make more eggs than you will need and
  2. Never let little boys with curious fingers anywhere near your eggs otherwise:
