Taking the Plunge!

Well ~ am taking the plunge into the blogwaters…wish me luck! 

 I’m not sure why I started an online journal…maybe because all my friends have one.  I usually post all my pictures up on webshots ~I’m nv_michelle, by the way ~ but thought I like to be able to describe more about them and what was going on at the time.

 Today started out bright and early at Dr. Jane’s office…she had to poke me with lots of little needles as I killed my hand over the weekend making Panoramic Sugar Easter Eggs.  She is “putting a band-aid” on me until I suck it up and go get my carpal tunnel fixed via surgery.  Just had my gall bladder taken out in October and I really don’t want to see the inside of a hospital for a long time.

 As I said above, the reason for the doctor’s visit was due to the opening of the Sugar Egg Factory last Friday.  I took the day off and headed to my Mom’s house to make sugar eggs.  It’s been 4 years since I’ve made them last ~ it has been exactly 4 years since I adopted Leo-Monster, my bengal kitty.  🙂  Dr. Destructo.  (I’ll post pictures of the critters later).

 Friday we made shells for 31 large eggs and 13 small eggs.  Along with flowers, swans, bunnies, chicks, suns, crosses, and fences.  Spent the whole day up to my elbows in sugar and merengue powder!  Sticky, Sticky, Sticky!

Saturday was putting all the critters inside and putting the tops on ~ left early (12:30 pm) as it started to snow big ole wet snowflakes.  Big sigh.  So tired of it snowing down in the valley…it needs to stay up in the mountains for the skiers and our water reservoirs, dang it!

Sunday morning I skipped church and went back to mom’s house to finish up the eggs. 

Soooo…what do you think?  Pretty, eh?!   Selling them for $15/large and $7/small ~ check out my Sleepy Cat Hollow etsy site.

    Welcome to the world of blogging! 🙂

    Those are beautiful Easter eggs! I made some of those one time in a craft class at church. That was a fun class. 😀

  2. Thank you Belinda! You and Sue looked like you were having fun at blogging, had to give it a try.

    My mom learned to make the eggs at Y-Wives, which I think is a church group…long time ago. She passed on the torch and I think we’ll have a third generation egg maker soon in Hannah.

    Hehe, I found ya! 🙂

    Get that hand fixed so you can keep hold of the torch. It wouldn’t be a good idea to drop before Hannah can hold it herself. I’ve got my eye on those eggs. Just as well I have to stay off things like that or I might just drop in and gobble them up.

    Yum-yum, and they look so pretty as well. Don’t let that Quilty near them. She might just forget to behave and disgrace herself around them! 😉

  5. Good Day Kiwi! 🙂 I know…I should go have my hand fixed sometime this year. I think I still have your address somewhere…

    Hey, stop picking on me! I know that Quilty. She can be quite disgraceful if not held in check. 😀

  7. Judah says:

    OK, I have a serious suggestion for ya…

    How about adding a link over on your left-hand navigational sidebar, or below each post, which will take the reader back to “home” where they presumably started from – https://sleepycathollow.wordpress.com/ – as to go back there presently, if commenting on a post, one needs to hit the back button instead. If you look at “Judah’s Journal” you will see a link button called “Journal” at the bottom along with others linking to other pages of my site. It is handy to have such a button/link as a navigational aid.

  8. Thank you for the suggestion! I was getting flustered about that last night. Will go try to figure out how to do that. Thanks!
