Wooden Mosiac Eggs

If you're like me, then Easter Eggs have stayed in your fridge uneaten for a length of time far exceeding their expiration point. Now what to do with them? Here's a project idea for the shells.

You Need
colored eggshells
wooden egg

Peel your eggs and save the shells, grouping them by color in separate compartments (the compartments of the eggs' carton will work fine).

Take your wooden egg and squirt glue onto the top half of the egg. Use the paint brush to spread the glue evenly. You can find wooden eggs at craft stores or order online from wood craft sites. Ours came from Hobby Lobby.

Once your glue is evenly spread, begin adding bits of shell. Once you have covered al the glue areas, allow the egg to dry and then repeat with the bottom half of the egg. Working on only one half at a time allows you to have a good spot to hold on to the egg. That's it!

Of course your child's will look more like this.

A heap of silky softness. . . look close and you might find a baby somewhere in there.

Yup, there he is!

It's the first photo we've gotten of him smiling-- oh that grin!

Thanks to the generousity of a friend who works at a computer recycling center, I have been given a new (new to me at least) computer. I am extremely grateful for there is much to be grateful for.

A big hug of thanks goes out to my dear friend Ashley for taking wonderful family photos of us (without a protest from June Bug!) These are some of my favorites.
