I was late on Valentine's Day here, so I thought I'd share some Easter early - just in case I blink and discover it's suddenly June. One of the reasons I've been so busy lately is that I've been producing photo shoots, not just making things and shipping them off for someone else to interpret visually. It's been deeply satisfying for me, despite the amount of work it takes. I don't think I realized how much I like having control over my own work (of course anyone who knows me would wonder why it's taken so long for me to come to this realization).
At any rate, this is one of the photo shoots I recently produced, in the March issue of Better Homes and Gardens. We shot this late in December, and while everyone else was dreaming of a white Christmas, I was basking in the pure happiness of a manufactured spring. Granted, it was a little weird dyeing Easter eggs four days before Christmas, but that didn't stop me from having a really good time - in fact, I can't wait to make these eggs again for my real Easter.
Regular visitors to this blog may remember this technique from last year, but I reinterpreted it in a more traditional color palette and tried some new materials, like eyelet, which yielded a soft, watercolor like effect. I find them gloriously feminine and I think they make a lovely addition to a holiday table.
