Natural Dye Colored Easter Egg Project Recreated for Country Living Magazine

March 12, 2011

Country Living Magazine April 2011 Issue

Do the eggs on the Country Living Magazine's April, 2011 cover look familiar?

Do you remember this Natural Dye Colored Easter Egg post that I did for Easter last year?

Natural Dye Colored Easter Eggs

Now that the April issue of Country Living Magazine is officially on the newsstand, we can finally announce this exciting news!

We were contacted by an Editor from Country Living Magazine back in January to see if I would be interested in recreating this Natural Dye Colored Egg Project for the April issue of their magazine. And, of course, I said yes! 🙂

Natural Dye Colored Easter Eggs

It's true; the eggs beautifully displayed on this pedestal were made by me, in my kitchen in Southern California, and were carefully packaged and shipped overnight to County Living in New York City for their photo shoot!

The Editor had originally planned on the project being featured in the craft section of the magazine, but we were thrilled when we received the news that the Editors decided to feature the project on the cover. And the project is also featured on their website in the 10 Adorable Easter Craft Projects section.

We don’t claim to be experts in any one thing, but what we do know is what women care about and like to talk about.  That’s what we love to share with you here on BigSisLilSis.

To celebrate this project making the cover of Country Living Magazine and to welcome our new readers, we decided to give away a Country Living book. And since the Editor at Country Living was so kind to donate FOUR books to us, we'll be having a Country Living Book Giveaway each week for the next four weeks.

To kick-start this series of giveaways, the first book we'll be giving away to one lucky reader is this gorgeous book!

Restore. Recycle. Repurpose. Create a Beautiful Home

(A Country Living Book)
