March Crafternoon

Yesterday was my March Crafternoon, and since Easter is approaching I went the easy route, and we dyed eggs instead of making anything. I covered the tables in brown craft paper, so any drips or spills wouldn’t matter. Easter is one of my most favorite holidays because I love Spring, the colors, and the really vintage Easter decorations you can some times find.

We always do a white elephant swap, but this month I thought it would be a lot of fun to have every one make an Easter basket for the swap instead. I kind of went overboard filling up a basket I found at a thrift shop, but it was so much fun! All the baskets looked so cute on the table together. This photo actually wasn’t even all the baskets, a few arrived a little later.

Katie wore a really cute Easter dress & dainty vintage gloves, so cute. Jessee brought a bunch of beautiful macarons, including some marbleized ones that I wish I got a better photos of. I always have so much fun with these ladies, and it was a great way to kick off Spring (slightly early) in my mind. We had really lovely 60 degree weather yesterday and it’s supposed to get just as warm today. This week I’ve got lots going on again. My guy’s birthday is this week, and then his party is on Saturday, so lots to do. Of course I also got it in my head that I might like to switch around two of the rooms in our house, so we shall see what happens with that.

    wow this looks like so much fun! do you just leave the eggs to dye? I’ve always done it where I’ve boiled the eggs in the dye or with something natural like beetroot or onion leaves

    Thanks for hosting another successful crafternoon! I had fun and hope you still love me even though I stole your basket. I was trying to be competitive:) See you this weekend.

    Helen, food coloring will dye the eggs in cold water as long as you use an acid like vinegar to help the color set. You can also use unsweetened kool-aid to dye eggs just like wool yarn/fiber because it has citric acid in in :)
