Review quote

Eggs are not just for Easter you know. I've been inspired to look at my baking staple again in a whole new light. With so many beautiful egg designs I couldn't wait to get started.



I love books like this as a source of inspiration, to flick through from time to time. Sparking my creativity. I am looking forward to developing my egg decorating technique and I can't wait to make some of the projects that showcase my newly learnt techniques. A great resource for my craft room. -- Ruth Cartwright * Craft with Cartwright *
