Eggstra Fun Egg Swap Revealed!

We're back! I have a bunch of pictures I want to share, and some great stuff we found at the antique shops. We got in about 2:45 Saturday morning. It would have been about 12:20, but those darn antique shops were too tempting. When I got home, I found my Eggstra Fun Egg Swap package waiting for me! Everyone did such a great job on their eggs! Since I think everyone has probably gotten theirs, I thought I would go ahead and post about the ones I made.

Yep, I wrapped all of those eggs with thread. I used DMC Pearl Cotton. I started with blue, but ran out and had to go with purple. I kind of like the purple better! Underneath is just a regular old plastic egg. I primed them white just incase any color peeked through. I glued the thread down with tacky glue.

The flowers are Prima flowers I painted pink, and I found the birds in the bridal section at Joanns. The lace is vintage stuff I thrifted. Pardon my fingers, I took these in the car at the post office before I mailed them out!

I am sorry that some popped off in transit, I hope you were able to fix them. I didnt even think about wrapping them individually. I hope you all have a happy Easter!

I love my egg, and when I got it I knew you had glued all that thread down by hand, and that it must have taken you hours!! Please know that your hard work & time is appreciated--they're beautiful! :)
