Happy Egg Hunt!

To be honest, I do not celebrate Easter (besides, I am not a Christian), but I color the eggs with my 6 year old daughter. It's kind of fun for her. Moreover, she likes the idea of the Egg Hunt.
When I was a child, every summer I spend 2-3 weeks in the summer camps, where our leaders (вожатый) made Treasure Hunt for us. It was fun! The idea is to find one treasure (usually it was a bag with candies and cookies). The leader gave us a note where we could find...another note ...After finding this note we knew  where was ...another note...and the next note...one more note...may be one more note...and the last note with location of the Treasure!
So, tomorrow is Easter, and Anya will go for Easter hunt in our house. I will hide 11 eggs (it's how many we dyed today) with a note on each egg:

I will give Anya a note where the first egg is hidden (it will be, for example, my bathroom). In my bathroom she will find egg#1 with a note "In dad's bathroom". She has to go there now to find an egg with "in Anya's closet" note, and etc.The last egg does not have to have a note (or, may be it can have "The Last Egg" note)
This game does not last long (well, it depends of the kid's age and how well the eggs are hidden).

But I know for sure, you and your child will have fun hunting!

Happy Easter (or Sunday at least)!

Ear Cuffs

Ear cuff jewelry is great for folks who do not have pierced ears or who want the look of multiple piercings without having to have any additional ear piercings. An Ear Cuff clips to the cartilage at the edge of the ear.Ear cuffs are large and fit on the middle of the ear over the cartilage. Whether they are plain or with dangles, Ear cuffs go on the same way. 
Start at the top of the ear and slide down and push in over the cartilage. Then adjust them once, if needed so they barely fit over the cartilage at the middle of the ear. Just make sure they feel snug and secure...

Little Suns for Good Mood

I got new gold tone brass wire a couple weeks ago from Wire-Sculpture.com. It really looks like real gold filled wire, not like yellow brass. I love to play with it! I want to show you the result :)
First, I made Sunny Earrings on golden chains (yes, it's the same pattern for my North Star Earrings).

April 1st :)

April Fool's Day is a "for-fun-only" observance. Nobody is expected to buy gifts or to take their "significant other" out to eat in a fancy restaurant. Nobody gets off work or school. It's simply a fun little holiday:)
Today I just wanted to share with you some of my daughter's "pearls".

Anya (2years 10 months), who has a 'secret' pet-name 'froggy',  lies between me and her dad. Peter kisses her and they lie hugging each other. Then he asks her:
-Anya, are you my little 'froggy'?
-No, I am your skunk!( and let off)
