Every Easter, as long as I can remember, my Grandma dyed the prettiest leaf and floral imprinted Easter eggs!

Imprinted Easter Eggs

They were so natural and lovely, but produced with nothing more than an easily concocted natural dyestock and little bits of flora. We lost my Grandma last year and for the first time, Jaydin and I recreated her dye with spanish onion skins, water and a few tablespoons of vinegar. We also purchased a few pair of cheap panty hose and elastic hair bands. Jaydin went on a walk and came back with some leaves and flower petals for our imprints – we also used some herbs in the refrigerator.

We first skinned about 10 spanish onions and placed the skins into a medium sauce pan along with about 4.5 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar. We placed our leaf and/or flower petals onto the raw eggs and wrapped them tightly in a small piece of nylon securing both ends with elastic pony tails. We removed them to reveal our pretty natural looking eggs. Bubble Art. Hand me a paintbrush and a piece of paper, and I’ll start to hyperventilate.

By Jeromina Juan Ever wonder about the possibilities of designing your own stamps without having to carve anything?

With no carving to do at all, this task cannot be simpler. And the result?

Directions Step 1: Sketch your designs on paper. Step 2: Hold the caulk tube vertical and tap it against a flat surface 8-10 times to remove any air bubbles.

Step 3: Let the caulking cure for 24 hours, and then your stamp is ready. About the Author: Stamps. Eraser Stamp. Faux Stone Concrete. Polka Dot Template. Water Colors. By Michelle Vackar of Hi Mamma With all of the daily activities of running your business it can be difficult at times to relax, decompress and enjoy life.

Water Colors

Some people will find their escape in cooking, walking, yoga, reading a good book …really the list can go on and on because we each enjoy different forms of relaxation. Back in my mid-to late twenties, I was working at an advertising/public relations agency and putting in an average of 50-60 hour work weeks. I was not married, no children and my career was my life, but one thing was missing: a time where I pampered myself, doing something that I enjoyed.

As a birthday gift, my parents surprised me with a watercolor class at our local art center. So I was rather quite excited to take the class, although I must admit, at first, it seemed a little odd to be leaving work at 6 p.m. to go take a watercolor class, when I was so much in the habit of working late or taking work home to do.
