Anyone else make their own pysanky?  I started doing it this year and I'm really really enjoying the process and, of course, the finished product.  I very much look forward to doing this with my children someday.

You are truly a renaissance man.  Cheesy  I have a child but not the patience for it. I might add that kids have even less patience; however, that said, they are truly beautiful creations and if you've got the patience --- have at it!  Wink

Oh, while at my local Slavic foods store shopping for Easter Kolbasi, I  saw a pysanky kit that invloved shrinking a plastic wrap over the egg. Looks fake and it makes the egg hard to crack.

Patience in doing something is definitely one virtue I do possess.  If only I could have it when dealing with people! Wink

I remember using those shrink wrap pysanky kits when I was little.  My mother, who did pysanky the old fashioned way with her Christian Mothers group, thought it was a good way to get me started. 

Then she stopped doing it (she always had too much going on hobby-wise and had to give something up or my father and I just wouldn't get fed) and, as a result, I never got to learn.  She's very excited, though, to see what I've done and, as usual, I'm excited to show her, as well.

I'm the only one who got the craft gene, you see. Smiley
