I'm goin' in...


We're about to color Easter eggs.

This is one of those projects that conjures visions of happy, cooperative, well-behaved children that don't spill a single drop or mutter a single cross word.

In reality, this is one of those projects in which I constantly break up fights ("No, it's E. Dub's turn to have the orange."), wipe up colorful spills, pull out my hair and mutter a few "bad words" under my breath.

Sigh.

Wish me luck...I'm goin' in.

(PS...I will be announcing the winner of the "Blogoversary Giveaway" tomorrow! And, I will be answering the Q & A questions on my 1,000th post, which is coming up soon!)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
