melissajm: Cover for Between Worlds, by Melissa Mead, from Double Dragon Publishing (Default)
Tomorrow marks the 30th year of an odd personal tradition.

Every Easter since I leared how to make 2-color eggs, I've colored and saved a hollow egg with my name on it.
The earliest are always pink and yellow. Remember the Ronco device that turned eggs and drew on them with markers? There's one done that way. Eggs from "my religious phase" have crosses on them, and later, descending doves. I decorated some using masking tape and Q-tips. One commemorates the writing of "The Giant Novel" with hand-drawn beanstalks. One egg is brown, dyed to look golden.

These aren't works of art. They're smudged, chipped and fingerprinty. But...30 years. I just had to commemorate it.

And then there's the other collection, started when my husband and I got married. We've filled up our first dozen with that one. ;)

Happy Easter!
