Egg #2-Rovi

Tonight’s egg is named Rovi.  I named it after one of my fav phone games.  The game is made by Rovio, and I think you can see why I picked that game.  (Angry Birds)


Rovi has some “battle wounds.”  After all, an empty eggshell is easy to break.  But she is still solid enough to last until Easter.

If you want to know why she is so angry, it is because little eggy, green pigs destroyed her egg babies!  (The nest above was destroyed by the wind and the 5 eggs that were in it came crashing down.) Sad smile

So after that, she followed the 3 little pigs example and left her straw home for a wooden one.


But that home was taken over by a wasps nest (from last year.)

Now, Rovi flies in-between the living room and dining room of a brick home.  (A home with evil cats that are keeping their eyes on her.)  I wonder where she’ll fly off to next?!

Of course, inside her are seeds that birds love…sunflower seeds!


If only you could see how silly I look with her!  The feathers flap in the wind.  So when I brought her in, I was running around the house like a little kid helping her fly!  LOL

The feathers came from a boa I used to wrap golf clubs to make pink flamingos for my un-birthday party.  The eyes were from the pack I bought to put eyes on silk flowers for the same party. Smile

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:


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?

Like what you see? Let us know! :)
