Ode to the egg....

It's a rainy day here in Minnesota, reminding me that with the spring rain comes flowers and new life in the coming weeks and months. Nothing is more symbolic of new life to me than an egg. I love the egg form and all the images that come to mind. I bought some large paper mache eggs at JoAnn fabrics last spring on clearance. I have been wanting to paint, glitter and embelish them ever since. With a weekend of craft binging I was able to alter the eggs you see here. Then I had a blast doing a little photo shoot with them. These make me smile. Enjoy!
