The Easter Bunny brought me a new tripod for my camera! I am quite happy about this as I don't have the most steady of hands when it comes to taking pictures. My new camera has image stabilization in it, but it will be handy to be able to just leave my camera in one place and swap out "props" as needed. I gave Martijn a bug net because he's been having to hunt down and eradicate computer bugs at work. It's been a little stressful, so I thought maybe him having a net would make him laugh a little. It did, so mission accomplished. Martijn's Easter Bunny present is backordered and will be hippity-hopped here eventually.
I also silk tie dyed some more eggs. I'm having so much fun with this it's ridiculous. I'd like to get my grubby mits on some blown eggs and see if I could get that to work. I know I can blow the eggs myself, but the ones I find here have ugly pink date stamps on them that I haven't been able to get rid of. Plus, if I have to blow them myself, I might NEVER actually get around to it.
The two photos on the bottom are the front and backs of the same eggs. The wrinkles in the fabric make kindof a neat effect. I also tried a couple of brown eggs. I think they turned out neat, but I don't think they'd work terribly well with light colored ties. I think my favorite (besides the orange checked ones of course) is the one on the top right. It turned out so VIBRANTLY! I just love it.
These two found a nice little home in my awesome yellow and orange Pyrex dish.
