Easter eggs have become a favorite blank canvas for me recently. For years, they completely intimidated me. They were so small, so fragile, and I thought everything had been done. But after doing many an Easter egg craft story this year, I fell in love with the egg.

FamilyFun Magazine asked me to do this lovely story, teaching readers how to use beets, onion skins, and cabbage to create various egg dyes.
