easterween

leff and i were in a funk. (it always happens when it's the first day we're off daylight savings time.) so i says to myself i says "self, wouldn't it be fun to make some easter eggs?" to which my self replied "it's october, stupid."

i'm so mean.

anyway, i decided to bounce the idea off leff. "leff" i said "do you want to celebrate easterween this year?"

"easterween?" he queried (er, but not on google)"what's that?"

"it's when we decorate easter eggs as halloween monsters." (i made this up on the spot. amazingly, he didn't notice.)

"oh, sure then!" leff is always game for things.

here, dear reader, are our first ever easterween eggs!

we both made pumpkins




leff's is on the left. mine is on the right. (i tried to make it look like a hillbilly.) (materials: acrylic, sharpie, eggs.)

i made a bat with flappy paper wings.



(materials: acrylic, sharpie, paper, egg)

leff went transylvannian with a dracula egg.



(materials: acrylic, sharpie, egg)

i countered with a frankenegg.



(materials: acrylic, sharpie, paper, egg)

and then leff blew all of the other eggs out of the water with this, the most awesome mummy egg!



(materils: acrylic, sharpie, medical tape, egg)

i mean, how incredible IS that? leff is awesome!

here are all the eggs hanging out.



look! almost four cups!

drac and the bat are now all humpty dumpty. (leff was hungry)



happy easterween!

i think there should be eggs for every holiday. but i think i'm only saying that because we have two dozen in the fridge that we need to use! haha!
