~*Fun Egg Dying*~

Hello Dear Friends! Tonight we dyed our Easter eggs! Trinity and I made marbled eggs just like my father-in-law, Kenny, makes. He has been telling me for years how to do this, but it wasn't until now that Trinity and I gave it a try. We were both wishing that I had boiled more eggs because this was so much fun!!! They look more tie~dyed than marbled... but oh~so~pretty!

(One broke and Trinity ate it! We did have a full dozen.)

Would you like to know how to do it too? The materials needed are very easy to come by & the process is super simple! You just need a box of Paas tablets ~ very inexpensive & easy to find... vinegar, water, and vegetable oil. Dissolve your tablets in vinegar and water as directed on the box. Next, drop about a teaspoon full of vegetable oil into each dye color. Now the FUN part! Roll your eggs around in the colors ~ just in a sort of here~and~there manner. The oil keeps the dye from marking the entire egg at one time. We rolled in one color, then the next, then another, and another, and another until we thought there was enough color on the egg. After we were done, we just wiped the egg with a paper towel to dry. The vegetable oil leaves a nice shine on the eggs & makes them sparkle!

Now that Trinity and I have tackled the egg dying successfully, I am feeling more confident about dying the wool I mentioned yesterday. Thanks to those of you that left me wonderful suggestions, hints, and tips on what to do with it. I'll be using your instructions very soon & will post up what I come up with... good or bad!

Now... doesn't Trinity look PROUD?

(He had fun decorating his basket given to him tonight by Grandma Mary and Grandpa Richard too.) :)

Wishing you a warm & happy Easter!
