When it comes to Easter what are some of your traditions? One of mine is painting eggs!
Do you paint eggs by hand or get the easy egg wrap kits?
Does your family do an Egg Hunt?  I personally love the hollow chocolate eggs that you can personalize.                                                                                            
Every year my mother would buy us those solid chocolate easter bunnies.  I thought they were tasty and enjoyed dipping them in peanut butter.

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays.
Whatever you plan on doing this Easter may you have a Wonderful day!

          Here are some Great Egg Decorating Ideas Made Easy

Rubber Band "Tye Dyed" Eggs 

Wrap several rubber bands around a hard-boiled egg (careful to not crack the egg!) Dip it into a bowl containing the mixture of food color, vinegar and water. Let it stay there for a while. Then remove the egg, pat it dry and take off the rubber bands. The areas covered by rubber bands will still have the original egg shell color and have a tye-dye effect.

You can dye the eggs a solid color before applying the rubber bands, or leave the eggs their original color.

Tape Designs 

Use tape, crayons, or nail polish to create fun egg designs.

Use simple shape paper punches to punch out shapes from masking tape (or cut out your own design), then stick tape to egg. Dye the eggs with the tape on, let them dry, then remove the tape to reveal great designs!

Other ways to get fun designs is to use white crayon or clear nail polish. Color designs, names or anything else, then dye the egg. Wherever you applied the crayon or polish the dye won't stick.


Marble Dyed Easter Eggs 

Use vegetable oil to create fancy looking Easter eggs!

To create a "Marbled" look to your Easter eggs, add 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to your cup of egg dye.

You can start with a white egg, or one that has already been dyed a base color.

Quickly dip your egg in and out of the dye. The oil causes only some areas of the egg to get the dye, creating the marble design. Keep dipping for more intense colors. You can also let the egg dry and re-dip in a second color. Repeat as many times as you wish. When the egg is dry, blot with a paper towel to remove the excess oil.

Different amounts of oil will result in more or less marbling. Experiment to find the mixture that you like best. Remember you can always add more, so start conservatively.

Society Against Child Abuse


" Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, these ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy

It is hard to believe that someone who has given birth to a child could harm them or even kill them.

    I seen on the news how a young teen mother had killed her infant.  I  could not believe how someone could do this and yet it happens on a day to day basis.  What is wrong with our world!

By watching this video you will be counted in support of standing against the Child Abuse 

                         This is such a touching video called "Dear Mr. Jesus"

Let's Stop Animal Abuse

I was sent an email about a dog , nearly one year old, almost starved to death and was found in a bag in a garbage chute.  This story touched my heart and at the same time was so annoyed that someone would do such a horrific thing to an animal. 
  What is wrong with the world today?  Do people not have a conscience?
I don't understand why someone did not give the dog away to someone, take it to a humane society, post a free ad and give the dog away to a good home, like Kijiji or Craigs list.

On a positive note Patrick is alive and is getting taken care of.
Through this incident the Mayor decided to build a facility for the animals and is asking for donations for the animals.

You can support the cause to stop animal abuse and read the rest of the story

What are your thoughts on this story?  My thoughts are that I hope they catch who did this and that they do jail time.
