Easter Egg Swap Reveal

Today is REVEAL day!

Briefly, the way the Easter Egg Swap worked involved creating two Easter-themed eggs which were then packaged and sent to Viv, the swap hostess-with-the-mostess. Upon receipt, she opened each package and decided who received which eggs, then sent two eggs from a different source to each of the swap participants.

Today's date was selected for each of us to post a photo of the eggs we created and Viv would post a link on her blog to all of the blogs of those who created the eggs. This would allow us to blog hop to find who made the eggs that we each received.

As you can well imagine, Viv had a lot of work to do. First she had to receive the eggs. Then she had to open all the packages...35 in all I believe, and then store the packages til all had arrived and were accounted for. She then had to open all the packages, take photos of the eggs, decide who was getting what, repackage them and then send them off to their final destinations. Whew!

When I signed up for this my first swap, I was greener than green when it came to blogging. I really had no knowledge of swap protocol, but was told to take photos of the eggs that I had made in order that I could post them to my blog on REVEAL day.

Here are the eggs I made...


I hope that my swap partners enjoy my creations.

Thanks, Viv, for hosting this my first swap experience!

Your eggs are going to be on everyone wish list. They are so unique, I love them. Please tell us all about them, what they are made of, looks like silk, and the wool leaves, LOVE that part. And is there a little eye so you can hang them. I know, just do a tutorial.......hee hee...now that's just an idea!!
Nice job, Kaaren!!

Those eggs are really different. I like them a lot. Did you go around a foam egg with thread of some sort?
