My Instagram round-up last year, was one of my most viewed NSS posts in 2012. I’ll be putting FANCY THIS FRIDAY on hold for the next four Fridays to bring you more NSS+IG love! Be sure to follow me at @crowandcanary for a glimpse into our show prep, as well. See you back here Monday with a sneak peek from a very talented first time exhibitor with some insanely brilliant hand lettering skills.

bunnies + crafty time

Easter eggs 2013
We’re a bit bunny obsessed in my casa. Did you know that we adopted a sweet Holland Lop rabbit back in November? Yep, Sherman is our new buddy and our pug/beagle mix, Ula thinks she is the bee’s knees (yup, you read ‘she’ correctly, her gender was misidentified twice – c’est la vie!). My Instagram feed is littered with photos of our two sweet fuzzy buddies, if you’re interested in getting a glimpse, or two.
Last year, the mister and I experimented with coloring eggs, we had a ton of fun, but the results were a bit… blah. This year, we were delighted with the results, though I have no clue how to really explain the process! We bought a super cheap gold paint kit and mostly just made up our own rules. We also experimented with marbling with food dye and shaving cream, which you probably saw on Pinterest, just like I did. We layered the two techniques and came up with some mighty fine egg art, if I do say so myself. Brian grew up crafting with his mom, she’s an expert quilter amongst other talents and I love that B knows his way around a hot glue gun. He always comes up with clever costumes, gifts and is game for whatever hare-brained DIY I have in mind for us. I feel perpetually lucky to have such a fun partner.
