Can't Win 'em All

Sometimes you hit upon a project idea where everything clicks...and sometimes, in spite of your best efforts, you just lay an egg :-) The collages I worked on yesterday, while I was home with my son, came out rather nicely. The eggs, which I have been working on for a week...not so much! The problem with the eggs, I think, is I should have stopped while I was ahead. With each step, they just didn't seem I kept adding different elements. Now, as my son pointed out, they look like rotten eggs with warts on the ends. I put so much work into them, however, that I am still displaying them on my fireplace mantle...until I am fully prepared to admit defeat.
These pictures are particularly off, as I'm rushing to get ready to play nursemaid this morning, then am off to the shop for the afternoon!


  1. You are too cute! I am SURE we all have those 'Rotten Eggs' lying around...I know I do:) Brillance comes in all shapes!

    Have a fun day!
    Hugs, Lynn

  2. Love the collages!
    They are of a perfect shade!;)
    As for the eggs... you are quite right- the best is knowing when to stop!!!! But they are a cute Easter decoration anyway, and the loveliest thing with eggs is... you can easily try again after a scumptious 'frittata'!!!!!!
