I love pinterest!
But sometimes I let myself
because I don’t have time to do
that I love.
Not only time
I just finished putting my husband
(i was willing cause I am a nurse as well)
This year, i did what I could.
sharpie doodle easter eggs!
Can I just say that sharpie doodling
was the most favorite activity
adult and small ones alike!
Please know that all kids had
sharpie on them!
My super cute and awesome hubby
was great at collecting
sharpies when kids were done
sharpie did not end up
on any of my furniture.
but I am sure i could have
to help me get sharpie
off of couches 🙂
i thought the eggs would look
And boy did they look FabUloUs!!!!
This is my favorite pic of
He is a pretty great guy!
notice there are baseball bats, homeplates
and other baseball paraphernalia
(i had to look up how to spell that…it was hard)
this year we decided to
try dying the eggs
i don’t know…
it looked neat!
we thought that the colors
were much brighter with the koolaid.
here is a link to the
blog post about making
hehehe…kool-eggs, she is very clever!
with so many kids…we had tons of color.
seriously, if i didn’t have a ton of colors,
this would have taken
oh, and by the way
the small ikea cups (all the colored ones in my pic)
were the best for coloring eggs.
They were perfect sized
and I could use them after
(well actually, I already own them)
instead of those containers you buy
and then they either get trashed
or put in the giant easter bin
that goes into storage
til next year.
This is my little man!
Isn’t he so cute with his striped egg!
that was his fav!
one day, i was trimming his hair
and he was watching in the bathroom mirror
and he started to giggle.
he then said…
i look like justin beiber.
i didn’t even know he knew who that was.
it was pretty cute!
here are some of our fun creations!
my bro made this really cool pirates map.
having colored sharpies
really made for neat designs on the eggs.
my bro put the egg
in a couple different colors until
he made a perfect
“old map brown”.
Another project was
i pinned so many cute
with peeps and jellybeans.
on my tighter budget
i found some fun
vases at walmart…
the photo I was trying to recreate
had yellow bunny peeps
and all orange jelly beans.
I love it!
Orange is the
i didn’t have time
nor the money
to search out just orange jelly bean’s
or to buy
bags of jelly bean’s
until I had enough
orange ones to fill the bottom of my jar!
can you imagine what it would
be like to have all the other
left over colors
at my house.
I would have eaten them all!
so here is what I got!
the flowers were $2 for the purple
and $2 for the orange.
the candy wasn’t too expensive
and we did eat it after easter!
normally I would have given up
because I couldn’t have it
exactly like the pic!
But guess what…
I love what I made!
here is my table when all was finished!
what a wonderful easter we had!
she still hadn’t seen it at this point :)!!
that tricky easter bunny!
