In our home holidays always have a slight twist from the traditional American family. We are a interracial couple: Mexican-Puertorican and Southern roots living in Ecuador. Lots of culture to choose from!
How to Make Cascarones:
Before your celebration, dye empty and clean shells and decorate them with paint or markers. When the design is dry, fill the egg with confetti. A hole punch can be used to make a lot of confetti very quickly. Paper is then glued over the hole to keep the confetti inside. I actually bought my confetti, sooo much easier.
It's an EGG-xellent tradition! Sorry couldn't help myself :).
I love to have fun with paper, food, paint, music and events and just being creative in all of it. However, I don't feel the need to be a perfectionist nor a professional in any of my creations. I wish I could have a blog JUST about the art of cooking, photography, sewing, art, mothering, jewelry making, card making, dancing, gardening, deep spiritual thoughts, decorating, poetry, party planning, baking.... and the list goes on but I can't. I don't think I was created with the ability to focus on one task. I like all of these hobbies layed out before me and the freedom to pick whatever I choose depending on the mood or time I have.
