11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 100 Facts About Me Swap Round 2 (Signups 12/28/09 - 01/10/10; sendout 02/10/10) on: January 06, 2010 11:43:13 AM
I googled "100 facts about me" to see some people who had done the same thing on their blogs.

I also did groupings of things that lead into more and more facts.  Like:
1. I like movies.
2. My favourite movies are romantic comedies.
3. My favourite romcom actress is Sandra Bullock. etc.

I don't really know! Just kinda stopped participating 'round here altogether: school and life got nutty and all that.   Undecided

Yay! I finished my list this morning and signed up for my first swap on Craftster since 2004!  Shocked

Awesome project!

My mom weeps when she reads or even thinks about that book.  My pre-school gave a copy to all of the parents on the first day of school.

That is beautiful!  I am jealous of the unsuspecting public who may have been surprised by one of these boxes!

 Angry I really wish you hadn't shared this recipe.  I made a batch and DH and I have eaten most of it this afternoon.  This stuff should be a controlled substance.

I really like the blue one and the tiger eye one because they show a really great way to use different shapes and sizes of beads.  Nice work!

I made that same fish design last year!  It was a lot of fun to write.
20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: More onion eggs on: March 31, 2007 01:11:18 PM
Those "Romanian" eggs in the first link above are not painted.  They are decorated with a wax-resist dying technique.  Wax is applied to the egg, sealing the covered portions from dyes.  The eggs starts white/brown and goes through successively darker colours, ending with black or another dark colour as a background.  The eggs shown are done by multiple Slavic cultures, primarily Ukrainians and Russians.

If I had more time before Easter, I was planning on doing a tutorial on this wax-resist technique.  I still might, but I have lots of eggs to finish decorating before next weekend!

I've found that the brine/juice from pickled beets works quite well to dye eggs a vibrant magenta colour.  Straw also gives a nice yellow colour.
