When I was a kid, I used to love decorating Easter eggs.

We had a neighbour, Ann, who was so kind and generous with her time, who taught us how to blow out eggs and make pysanka. Beautiful, intricate designs that you masked with wax and dipped over and over, slowly bringing your vision to life.

As an adult, I’ve let that art fall by the wayside, but there isn’t a single Easter that passes that my heart doesn’t ache a little to dye eggs.

I love the idea of decorating Easter eggs into something more than just an egg. And I got to thinking, what if I could turn eggs into dogs?

And even more fun – what if I could make those dogs look like some of my favourite dogs of the internet? 😍 Um, SQUEEEEEE. Yeah, I knew I had to try.
