Friday Egg

Owl Pysanka on Brown Egg

We're late! We're late! For a very important date!

JoJo decided for the first time in her short life that she wanted to stay up playing and/or crying and/or screaming until 10 p.m. Her normal bedtime is 7:00, so you understand that this put a mighty big crimp in my blogging style. She finally collapsed exhausted at her door and went to sleep on the floor. I went in a few minutes later to try to gently put her in bed without waking her and wouldn't you know it, she had gotten into bed and tucked herself in all by herself. Funny kid. I live in hope that she will sleep in tomorrow morning.

Today's egg is a stylized owl done on a brown chicken egg. A woman at one of my Easter shows saw an egg with the same type of placement of lines and thought it looked like owls, so I decided to try it. I like how it worked out, and will be trying a more advanced version next time with more details. Please forgive the funky photos (see above!)

Happy Friday to everyone, and I hope your bedtimes go more smoothly than ours did today.

I still don't get how you make ordinary eggs look so cool! :) Ahhh...the bedtime blues. We've had a few of those at our house over the last five years. In fact, I still have my two-plus year old in a crib so that she can't get out of bed by herself. :)

Planning, planning, planning. And then letting things happen that are unplanned! It went a bit better tonight on the bedtime front, thank goodness.
