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.

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.

SO, WANNA MAKE A PRETTY EGG? FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS AND YOU’LL BE WELL ON YOUR WAY!

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 :)

    Question. Would your dog be interested in breeding with a man (ME) to create a Mog, half man, half dog? I’ll be tender.

    Ingenious stuff here. I love the egg that appears to bursting with gold. The personified eggs are brilliant as well. I love hand painting and adorning them with costume jewelry like gaudy fake Faberge eggs. Several of my friends have gone so far as to order my Faux-berge eggs and on the hunt we just had the kids who found them went mad. Some of the smaller kids thought the eggs were precious. Where do you get your DIY art supplies, by the way?

    This is my first ever visit to your blog. I don’t know who you are. But I’m pretty sure we’re best friends and just don’t know about it. Sorry its hard to take back any creep factor that’s already happened. But hell I was laughing at your damn eggs. What really got me though “lol I’m just yolking”

    Alright take care!

    Cleopaatra iss assumed tto get liked the jewel and possessed her very own emerald mines in Egypt.
    Also, mak sure you make use of a jeweler who yoou trust and which will nnot pressure you to definitely choode the priciest bit of jewelry within the
    store. Because tthe diamonds are merely set through the face portion with the ring, half style diamond eternity rings are undeniably less of a challenge for making plus much more affordable than their full
    style counterparts.
