Happy Easter

Its good Friday here but there is nothing good about it. Its so cold and windy, with abit of snow chucked in as well. So miserable.

The boys are off school today so we did a bit of each painting. I bought polystyrene eggs for them to decorate. We decided we would make them all crackly with Tim Holtze crackle paint. Remember to not heat polystyrene eggs with a hot heat gun!!!!! Not a good result, looks like a shrunken alien.

So then i had to stand and blow eggs the traditional way, boy did my ears hurt afterwards. We did one each and a spare. A few hours later we have some funky eggs covered in stickles and tim holtze.

Now for some crafty news. Today is the launch of a year long competition over on sprinkles and the forumz. Here is all the information.
