It’s that time of the year again! LET’S MAKE S**T OUT OF EGGS.
First a Bambino update tho..
So for this post I set out to find the best stuff you can do to an egg besides eat it. And boy, oh boy, did I find a lot of things. This post is the *best* of those things I found. Pretty much whatever didn’t sustain the GIANT EYE ROLL that was happening on my face the entire time I filtered through egg projects.
I also set out to do my own design projects. I planned to complete all of them, and not die in the process from boredom. This is my story.
Ok so I didn’t get around to doing all the things I originally wanted to do with the eggs, because at a certain point you’re like “FUCK EGGS” and really can’t be bothered to look at another egg until you’ve cooled down with some overdue time on the toilet and a child’s serving of vodka. It feels like I’ve been painting and messing with eggs for 72 continuous hours (continuous because I don’t recall having a single dream during this time) and I’m seriously pooped. That said, I completed a handful of what I think are some pretty neat ways to decorate your eggs without a) breaking the bank, or b) needing to go through too many steps. (I hate lots of steps; very short attention span.)
Before I get to the eggs I just have to say– have you guys seen what’s out there as far as egg decorating goes? because you should, it’s funny. Thanks, but I’ll pass on your Jesus Rising from the insides of a cracked egg, my gosh. And no thanks, painting-an-egg-on-your-pregnant-belly. *I get it, I get it* but why not let some things end in the having of the idea, instead? Not everything has to be acted upon. Honey and I often joke about adopting a litter of abandoned female Frenchies and then raising them as our own in the backyard. The dream is we slooowly, carefully ween them off of their cigarette addictions, love for baguettes and willingness to surrender easily. <== World War II joke
There are zombie eggs in this post, btw.

About this next egg, hobbyist artisan crafter Electricocomics comments, “ This makes me feel bad about eating stuff now.”
Don’t be sad we’re not done yet. There’s this:
Any favorites? I’m loving the gold foil ones, personally..
And I’m wondering… do you think any of these decor ideas could work as centerpieces for a wedding? One around Easter time, of course, but still. Wedding appropriate? Or am I out of my mind and need to get some much needed sleep as it’s 7 in the morning on Saturday and I’ve been working through the night on an egg post.
>>Much love and happy holidays to your faces!
..of course, there’s always *eating them* instead. Did I mention all of the above projects – including mine – render the eggs inedible? What kind of shit is that? That’s some shit. If you’re feeling faint probably don’t cover your eggs in chalkboard pen and nail varnish. If you are hungry don’t wrap your available eggs in washi tape and fuzzy silk ribbon, be sensible. Love you guys :)
