Eggtastic Mailing

Easter 2011_0207_edited-1
I got this idea from AmberLee at Giverslog to mail Easter eggs! So, I hunted all over town for big eggs. All I found were these at KMart. I didn't like the fact that they had a clear top because I wanted the inside to be a secret, but big eggs aren't very easy to find so you take what you can get!

I stuffed them with candy, a peep, and a note. Next, I added postage and took them over to the sweet lady at the post office across the street from my office. She usually cringes when I come in. She says I challenge her with these crazy mailings!

She laughed when I set the bag on the counter and said, "I need to mail some eggs." She said, "You can't mail real eggs." I said, "No, these eggs (handing them to her)." She laughed and said, "I want to see if they make it to their destination. You better let me know!"

So, hopefully they will arrive in one piece to everyone!

You'll have to be sure and post again when you hear that they arrived so we know! They look adorable--I love all the fun colors.
