Print your own Easter and Easter Bunny stickers. The black and white stickers are "color-your-own" stickers. Both can be printed on Avery 5164/8164 labels, six to a sheet, or on the full label sheets, then cut out. They're PDF's, so just click to open.
You could also just print on regular paper and glue to onto hollowed-out eggs for decoration. (Ink could bleed into hard-boiled eggs.)
Happy Palm Sunday! Getting ready for Easter? Here are some Easter Egg decorating tips:
Cooked method: Put eggs in 1 inch water & add white
vinegar (approx 2 Tbsp per quart water); add natural dye ingredients &
bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer 20-30 min. This will create intense, even
colors that permeate shell.
Cold dipping method: Combine 1 qt water, 2 Tbsp vinegar &
natural dye ingredients in large pot, simmer 20-30 min, strain & cool
liquid. Dip hard-boiled eggs in cold dye until desired color is achieved. Dry
on paper towels. This method will create softer, more translucent colors.
beets: Boil 4 cups chopped
beets with eggs for a deep pink color. Rinse eggs immediately for a pale, beige
coffee: Boil eggs in 1 qt of
brewed coffee for a deep mocha color
blueberries: Boil 4 cups fresh or
frozen berries with eggs, or use as cold dye. This will create a rich lavender
cranberries: Boil a 12 ounce bag
of berries. Use as a hot or cold dye. This will create a pale pink color.
onion skin: Boil eggs with 4
packed cups of onion skins. This will create sienna tones.
red cabbage: Coarsely chop 2 heads
of red cabbage, add 2 quarts water & 6 Tbsp white vinegar; boil, then
strain. Use as a cold dye. Dipped eggs will turn pale blue. Eggs soaked overnight
will turn a deep royal blue.
turmeric: Boil eggs with 3 Tbsp
turmeric. This will create a bright golden color. If you boil eggs in turmeric
first, then cold dip them in the red cabbage dye, you will get a soft
Make half an egg 1 color, other ½ another color.
Sienna: Rub egg with white
vinegar, wrap in onion skin, secure with kitchen twine, and boil in water
Tie-dye: wrap rubber bands
around egg before boil-dying, or try on a previously dyed egg to double dip,
creating color contrast.
So I've started a small online-only advertising magazine, and am looking to feature other home businesses and authors. This one's for the little guy or gal.
The An Enchanted Holiday Magazine is an online
advertising magazine with holiday content, available free, and free to
distribute on your own website. It's intended to give home businesses a
reasonable place to advertise, and a means to "spread the word."
Interested in seeing your home business or book featured? All
I ask in return is that you offer the magazine free on your website or blog,
and contribute something to the magazine, such as a book blurb or short
excerpt, holiday memory, or original craft or recipe or illustration. (None of
which would be exclusive; you're free to also post on your own blog, etc. You
retain all copyright.)
Also interested in reciprocal links with other home
businesses/authors. No affiliates links, please, and family-friendly. Would
consider a separate magazine for writers, including spicy romance, if there's
enough interest. (I write women's/children's fic, as well as some creative
I'm interpreting "holiday" very broadly, as any
holiday (standard or not, ex. National Pie Day), or seasonal tie-in. Questions?
Interest? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, I'll also post the magazine on my blog, where back
issues will remain archived.
Here's the code to put the graphic for the ad magazine itself
onto your website. No need to download the banner image; it's all in the code.
If you do post it, let me know, and I'll offer a reciprocal link to your site.
I'm the owner of An Enchanted Letter, and since late last year, I've gone digital, and have been adding printable PDF letters to my storefront over on Lulu. The Valentine letters are up, if you're looking for a unique gift, or an alternative to the traditional Valentine card. Some are for adults, and some are for children. (Most of the letters I've written over the years are geared toward children.)
My mom always made kind of a big deal about holidays, so I have fond memories. Red Hots candies and those little candy hearts with the sayings imprinted on them.
Here's a sample of what the letters look like. You can read the letters before you buy by using Lulu's "preview" button.
While you're there, grab the An Enchanted Holiday coloring book and the story book (they're both free downloads. There is a coloring page for Valentine's Day in there, and a classic story for Valentine's Day. Who doesn't love "Beauty and the Beast?")
