Easter is a big day for our family...not because were religious and go to church, not because we believe that Christ wad resurrected this day, not even because we worship the goddess Eostre!

No No, Easter is all about the Eggs in my family...

But no ORDINARY egg painting ceremony will do..none of that PAAS crap...no handy manufactured stickers of bunnys and chicks, crayons hardly do anything, and food colouring is only about 1/16 of what makes up a good egg.

It started in 2000, when my grandma decided to save the eggs we made (which fail in comparison of the quality and standards of todays egg), they all kept surprisingly well, with only a few smelly accidents. This became a running joke in our family, and now every year we attempt to top last years dozen (or two), my grandma saves them in her display cabinet and we have a jolly good time making them. This year has really topped the bill however...we went all out, and the creativity was flowing like the mighty amazon (piranhas not included).

Here's a look into this years Easter Egg Art-a-thon....Hope you enjoy!

Past year eggs, and blank eggs ready for decoration
