Big eye birds

Last week I had a very busy week......I had a friend here visiting so we spent every day out and about exploring Almaty.......while that was GREAT fun it was nice to spend some down-time this week and draw some big-eyed birds!!!!

Easter eggs

 but not chocolate ones!!! Here in Kazakhstan you can buy chocolate eggs but they are no where near as common as they are in the UK. For the last couple of weeks the supermarkets here have been selling kits to make these egg stands

 you get a cardboard stand that you slot together.......

 and plastic sleeves......

 you take the plastic sleeve and insert an egg.....a real egg

 place in hot water......

 and the plastic sleeve shrinks onto the egg!!!

 Place eggs on stand!!!

 I bought this more colourful version too!!! HAPPY EASTER!!!

If only I knew

what to say!!

 I like to have words on my pages......not neccesarily deep and meaningful ones and certainly not anything very personal......but words of some sort......... I had no idea what to put on this one so saying just that became the perfect words to use!!
