I love Easter – chocolate, bunnies, green grass, pretty pastel-coloured eggs – what’s not to love? Despite being 34 years old, I still enjoy dying and decorating Easter eggs (I’m a kid at heart and always will be).

One of my lovely backyard chickens, Liesl, is an Ameracauna, and she has the “blue egg” gene.  She lays a beautiful, pale green egg.  (I’ve had her since last June, and I still marvel at the miracle of her perfect eggs – every single time!  It’s amazing!)

I’m taking a pysanka workshop this weekend – Ukrainian Easter eggs.  I’m looking forward to doing something crafty.  It’s been years since I made a Ukrainian Easter egg.  Any tips or secrets I should know?
