Good News and Crafty Goodness-Egg #1

Let me start out by saying typing that NONE of this is an April Fool’s Day prank… Shall I continue?

Ok so maybe by “was going thru an emotional time”  I should have said “was, AND STILL AM…”

Since my experimental, self-medication to stop my hemorrhaging, and further self-med to give me a more regulated cycle, I have ovulated 3 times!!!  I am so excited! (and scared!)  So let’s celebrate: (I hope I’m not premature in my celebrations…)

So as a celebratory act, I decided to make a dozen “Easter” eggs!  Doesn’t sound like much, huh?  Well, I’m not simply dying them.  I’m giving them a more creative wardrobe!  I got the idea from a project in Family Fun Magazine. They had a project similar to today’s egg. (Which I named “Scuba Steve!”)

Of course, as usual for me, I didn’t follow the tutorial.  I just looked at the end result and made it my way.  In the end, the only real difference is that I gave mine a swim cap, more colorful goggles, and mine is filled with California Giant Zinnia seeds that were handed out at a local event!

Yup!  Ya see—I’m not Christian, therefore, to me, “Easter” is more a day of celebrating spring with a planting frenzy!  But half of our family is Christian, so I end up doing the fabulous egg hunt with them.  So here’s my mix of the two.

BTW—I am not affiliated in any way with Family Fun Magazine!  I just really like it!  If you DO decide to subscribe, here’s some words of advice:

DO NOT PRE-PAY!!!

I liked their mag so much I bought both of my sisters gift subscriptions for Christmas last year.  For the first time ever, I pre-paid!  Neither ever got a single issue!  And when I emailed them, they sent me a robot message stating that in order to help me, I had to give them the blah, blah, blah number from the back of my sisters’ magazines!  How can I get a number from a magazine that they never got?

I love your "scuba Steve".
The name immediately made me giggle(loved the movie).
I will keep my finges crossed for your possible good luck!

Yeah, I loved the movie, too! That's where we got the name from.

And thanks! We got a ton of emails about what color baby dust we are wanting, but we don't care which we get. We would like to have one boy and one girl, but which ever we are blessed with will be simply perfect! :)
