I can't remember the last time I sat down and decorated Easter eggs. It has to be at least 10 years! While we visited my in-laws, I found out that it's a family tradition. After a dozen eggs were boiled, we sat down for a few hours and decorated eggs with food coloring and q-tips. I had a rough start (and made a mess) but overall I'm happy with my eggs. (the stripped egg is mine - of course!) Enjoy!
