Luck of the Irish!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day! I forgot just how much I love wearing green! I have my 3.00 bargain bin green glasses on at work, and feel like a pot of gold! :-)
Above is my Shamrock egg. I had forgotten about this design and am glad to resurrect it. Hopefully a Celtic design is in my future.
Today I received a call about goose eggs! I am excited that a friend of mine was kind enough to mention my egg passion to another person who raises chickens and geese. The barter system is amazing! I will get gorgeous goose eggs in exchange for an etched goose egg! That is a perfect trade in my opinion.
After talking with the lovely lady, I very much want to raise my own hens with colored egg shells. I think I need to embrace the fact I cannot do everything and be content in meeting new people, building eggs related friendships, and acquiring eggs that way.
I worked on a new goose egg design last night ironically enough. It turned out very well if I do say so myself. I have not had a chance to shade it yet, but when I do, I will post it here. I like it enough that I already outlined a second, and I will outline a third. That way, if my mom wants it (which she usually does when it has to do with Lithuanian designs), she can have her pick and I still will have two for craft shows.
This weekend there will be no craft show. Although I am a little bummed about it, I am excited that I will have a weekend to stay home, clean up the house after Snowmageddon, etch eggs, and all around relax. I want to drink an entire pit of tea while making earrings in front of the fire, and watch a musical. Maybe "Hello Dolly." Yes, I am a real party animal.
The corned beef is in the crockpot, I will head home for lunch to have a bowl of potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and corned beef. Then when the day is done, Carol (sister), Jess (friend) and I will go see Beauty and the Beast. We cannot wait, and I am sure the experience will be magical!
