You are awsome!!!! Get you some bag balm for your hands and have a cosmo. You so deserve some serious recognition. Enter that gorgeous dress in some shows. It is inspriational and totally current in a classic and elegant way. Impressive!

Try taking some shots in heels to let the dress hang.

I wish I had your abilities!! Lets see some more!! --dana42
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: More onion eggs on: February 27, 2008 07:48:53 AM
I was cooking some black beans and found that if you drop an egg in the liquid, with or with out the beans, the eggs turn a deep purple, indigo color. The longer the better. Follow the dried beans directions and let the eggs go. Vinegar will keep the eggs from cracking.
Try other foods that color the water to see what you get. Refer to Native American dying materials for natural resources like your back yard, park or hikeing path.
Also try using old funky dried herbs. Glue the herbs to the egg. Stencil an area for a specific color or texture. Like you would do with glitter. Think of the rich reds of ground paprika, the browns of nutmeg and the greens of oregano, rosemary, or thyme. Go nutty!! Seal with a matte or if you prefer a gloss clear coat. They will last for many years. You could blow the eggs out and keep forever.
I have thoght to try using gorilla glue to fill the eggs with for weight and sturdiness. Haven't tried it. The point is that it foams up and fills the cavity. It will also break the egg if there is too much. Try a few before you get excited about decorating. The insulation is also an option,. but again I have not tried this stuff and it comes out in force.
Hope you enjoy my thoughts.
