Mornin' bloggy friends! If you haven't already, pop over to the review for Devil's Cape and enter my giveaway? Ends tomorrow, so hurry over!
I've been busy all week working on Christmas ornaments. Not normally given to crafts or Christmas things, this has been something I justify as artistic rather than crafty, and gifts rather than decorating. So there. But I talked about it awhile back and am nearing completion of the project (Yes! It's a project!), so I thought I'd share pictures now, while Christmas is still two weeks away. Yipe! Is Christmas really only two weeks off? Make it stop!!!
My Evil Sister came for Thanksgiving and helped me blow the center out of a bunch of eggs. For proof I offer pictures.
See? She's holding an egg. That's proof, right? And check out our Hunnies being total geeks:
I think they were looking for a movie to see and wound up going to Appaloosa. They liked it.
So the Evil Sister was blowing out eggs, as I said:
First you poke the holes, making sure to poke a tiny hole in the pointy top with a straight pin (two or three pokes close together), and a larger hole in the bottom, about the size of a pencil eraser,
then you blow,
That's my favorite part. See her little chipmunk cheeks? She was having so much fun.
I wasn't letting her have all the fun just so I could take pictures, even though she's not much of a photographer. Here she proves herself a decent picture taker. And I prove I suck at egg blowing.
Yeah, I cracked every one I attempted. Something about my big "man hands". Dang it. Look at the ones I attempted:
Then Maybelline had to give it a shot:
Isn't she cute? And I love it when Maybelline and the Evil Sister get together because they're always laughing:
Anyway, here are the results of the egg blowing:
Meaning I very gently rinsed each egg under a tiny stream of water from the faucet, making sure to run the water through the eggs, cleaning out and off any trace of the innards (that's a technical term). Then let them dry.
Tomorrow I hope to show you what I've done with the eggs. It's been a busy week. I'm not sure I'm happy with the results, but it is what it is.
Until I write again ... (IT'S ONLY TWO WEEKS TILL CHRISTMAS, PEOPLE!!!!)
