I'm having the best time painting Easter eggs! I never concentrated much on them before now but almost every day I get an order or two online from either Etsy or Ebay. What I especially like is that some women are buying one, then when they receive them in the mail, they immediately order another one or even two, one for each of their children with their names printed on them.
I wrestled with painting Easter eggs because it's the holiest of our holidays, the cornerstone of our faith. But because it's so holy and reverential, there isn't much I can put on a wooden egg for Easter except a lovely cross or something similar, with a Scripture verse attached. I didn't want to trivialize the meaning of Easter so finally decided that no harm would be done by painting Easter eggs with the bunnies and baby chicks, etc. Children love these Easter eggs and so do their parents. I hope I'm not doing the wrong thing by painting and selling them, so if you have any opinion one way or another and want to share it, I'd like to hear it. It's no secret that I also paint Santa Clauses at Christmas on wooden eggs and people love them. I guess I figure God looks on the heart and He knows I'm grateful beyond words for the meaning of the cross, just as I am thrilled with the nativity.
It is cold, cold, cold here. John brought me home a box of Russell Stover chocolate covered pecans and I hugged his neck. What a sweetie! I've been craving them.
Back to my paint brush..... Love you guys and gals!
"O Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord, forgive me if I say
For very love, thy sacred name, a thousand times a day.
O Jesus, Lord, with me abide; I rest in Thee whate'er betide.
Thy gracious smile is my reward. I love, I love Thee, Lord.
