This is Shawna. Shawna is our new roommate (well, "newer," since she's lived with us for almost a month). Shawna is Jewish and confessed to Christina and me that she had never dyed Easter eggs. We immediately decided to rectify this situation.

After a quick trip to CVS for supplies, Shawna boiled some eggs and the three of us crammed into our tiny kitchen to dye us some eggs! It was very exciting, since Christina and I hadn't dyed eggs for years, and the kits have become much more interesting. We couldn't find a Paas kit and instead got one that involved mixing color packets with water. (Christina was a little bummed; she missed dropping the tablet in the vinegar and watching it fizz. Also: NO WHITE CRAYON. That was a little upsetting, since every Easter egg-dying session should involve a white crayon.) The dyes were very oily, which created a swirly effect on the eggs.

Here are some pictures of our exciting afternoon teaching our new Jewish friend about how to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ:

Look at those eggs! BEAUTIFUL!Also, Shawna was quite taken with how pretty the paper towels we used to dry the eggs came out. She even put them on display!
Clearly, the way to convert others to your correct religion is through art projects incorporating Pagan symbolism. Drop kick me, Jesus, through that goal post of life!

Also, I don't know if you noticed Shawna's necklace (WHICH SHE MADE). Or, as she calls it, her negglace!And I'm sure you're wondering if we had some bitchin' Easter jamz playing on the stereo. DUUUH!!Happy Easter, everyone!
