    How well do you know your family?

    Posted 8:00 PM 4/29/2014 by My719Mommy Blogger - Jessica

    Eggs lend themselves to be decorated nicely. They are naturally ornamental. Every year we usually make some eggs that can be used as decoration for years to come. When we pull them out every year it's easy to see which ones stand the test of time, and make the cut to be used for decoration.

    I was about to embark a long road trip from California to Colorado. I try to have projects on hand that are easy, portable and be done anywhere.
