Easter Eggs

Greetings friends!

I've been busy revamping the look for Dragonfly Dusk Designs, and so far I'm very happy with the progress! My goal by the end of the month is to have the new look completed and to get some new items up for sale in the shop.

I've also been working on completely redoing my craft room. The layout just wasn't working for me anymore, and this total overhaul has really helped me organize my crafty life. I do believe I'm in the final stages of it now, and I can't wait for it to be done and ready to go.

In the meantime though, I have lots of craftiness that I haven't posted here yet, so let's back track all the way to Easter.

We have secret sisters at work (SHH! It's a secret...), and as an Easter present for mine, I hollowed out an egg:

...Something I'm surprised I did successfully on the first try. Then I got out my box-o-flowery things and glue gun and went to town:

The flowers on the inside of the egg are glued to a packing peanut. It made a perfect little Styrofoam block. ^_^

I actually bought an egg stand to display it on (not the lovely cardboard tube in the picture) and tucked it down in a little box with some candy.

The egg is actually much stronger than I ever would have thought. I cut the hole in it with my Dremel and even sanded it down and it held up perfectly. This was a really fun little project, and my secret sis seemed to really enjoy it too. <3
