Happy Easter!!

I know every one will get tons of Easter posts today so maybe we can make this one a little different with a special giveaway from our sponsor Hue Fielding.

Remember these Hue Fielding trousers you saw on Jax Friday?  Super cute with  little extra dash of unique boy-ness!

Herringbone Trousers from Hue Fielding

Best of all they’re versatile, I think they work both for fancy events as well as for more casual outfits.  But these aren’t the only cute creations Hue Fielding has in her shop (I wish we had been able to have her donate for little Deester instead of Jax – darn China!!).

Cupid's Arrow Dress from Hue Fielding

Ice Cream Social Dress and Skirt set from Hue Fielding

I just love the two little girl outfits above that were from her “sold” sections.  The red dress would be SO cute on Dee and I love that she put the little turquoise button in the middle – you really only find details like that on hand made items!   Hue Fielding focuses on the best materials, simple designs and attention to detail. Above all, Hue Fielding loves color in all the right places (if you couldn’t tell from they designs). That’s why tumblewee loves supporting such creative people on etsy!

Hue Fielding is based in Guelph Ontario (did I mention I almost went to graduate school in Guelph?).  They’re tag line is “making incredibly good things for good kids everywhere. Unexpected, brilliant color!” Perfect for them right?

She has such cute little spring inspired outfits right now . . . like these little jumper shorts.

Sweet Floral Overalls from Hue Fielding

If you’re in the Waterloo area next Saturday April 14th,  Hue Fielding will be at the Stitch n Kitsch Spring sale in Waterloo, so stop by and visit them!

DIY from the Blog World: Dying Easter Eggs

As a child one of my most favorite memories for Easter Sunday was dying the eggs the week before and then hunting for them in the house on Easter morning.  Our mom was always so creative when it came to the holidays and had the BEST Easter baskets, made fabulous oven baked french toast, and hid our Easter eggs in the most secretive of places (I remember finding one in our pool table pockets!).  So I decided that this weekend I’d post some DIY eggs from the blog world to reeve the kiddies up for a great and creative holiday.

Make Easter eggs using all natural ingredients.

Tutorial using nylon stockings and suggestions for small flat leaves to use at Family Fun. Photo from KurtFML’s Flickr Photostream.  To get the colors in this photo use all natural dyes.

Japanese paper Washi Eggs

French inspired decoupage eggs from Martha Stewart

These two egg decorating methods employ the same technique found at Martha Stewart but just different papers!  Or cut little pieces from paper that inspires you and don’t cover the entire egg.

No-dye easter eggs with double-sided tape and glitter!

Do the polka dots above or cool stripes like these!

Try out some of these no-dye egg decorating ideas from Better Homes I like the double-sided adhesive strips cut into pretty designs and then dipped in glitter!

Glitter eggs from Martha for decoration

Speaking of glitter – make these pretty decorative eggs from Martha Stewarts again.

Crayon art eggs!

Psyanky-eggs

These pretty as can be eggs also use similar techniques through creating designs with wax and then dying or leaving.  The top uses simple crayons on hot eggs to produce pretty colors on eggs (remember you can use a white crayon to draw pictures and also words on eggs before dying as well).  The bottom picture is an old Ukranian method using hot candle wax to draw designs before dying the egg.

Hand paint your already dyed eggs.

Chalkboard paint eggs

Hand paint eggs after dying with water-based acrylic colors special for eggs – I love the polka dot one!  Or redecorate again and again with  chalkboard paint eggs (use colored chalk too!).  You could also use these as place settings at an Easter party.

And the biggest trend to hit easter egg dying this year . . . silk tie-dye eggs. So pretty!

If you’ve been on pinterest at all you’ve probably seen these beauties around.  Silk tie -dying.  What a good way to reuse unwanted ties.

Real chocolate eggs!

And last but not least . . . why not make real chocolate filled eggs by following Martha’s directions?

Now that the creativity is flowing go and visit our pinterest Easter board for even more ideas on egg decorating!
