Beaded Easter Eggs!

Easter is a time of new beginnings, Spring, pastels and warmer weather.  It is also a time for bunnies, baskets, and jellybeans! And who can forget those colorful eggs! The Red Hat Society ladies love any reason to play, have fun and add sparkle to everything we touch.  So for this Easter we decided to put our own RHS spin to the classic Easter egg decoration.


Materials:
Small beads
Plastic eggs
Tacky glue
Tape
Paper bowl








Start with taping the top and bottom of the egg so another color can be added later.


 Add tacky glue to a small section in the middle of the egg.  Working one small section at a time pour, roll or pack beads to the area of the egg that has glue on it.  Be sure to use a paper bowl underneath your egg to keep the falling beads contained in one area.  Continue until the whole egg is covered in beads.  Allow to dry for 24 hours.



To add another color to the egg.  Remove tape from the top and bottom of the egg.  Add glue and beads of a different color to both top and bottom until all areas are covered. Allow to dry.



Place your beautiful sparkle eggs in a basket and display on your table!

New Column!!!! “We’re All Sisters Here!”

Telling Your Story

Ladies, have you ever considered telling your story? Your stories are the experiences in your life that brought you through adversities or sorrows and you're still sober and sane. Telling your story just might help someone overcome an addiction to drugs, alcohol, food, or some other inappropriate behavior patterns. Telling your story could free someone from an abusive relationship or a physical infirmary that saps their strength, drains their mental energy, or robs them of their peace of mind. Hearing your story they might think if you made it over and through, perhaps they can too, and they can gather information on the situation and formulate a solution.

Believe it or not people want to know their problem is not unique to them, somebody else went through the same thing or a similar thing. When you are telling your story, you are freeing someone from bondage, helping them possibly see a way out of an unpleasant situation and into a new attitude about life and loving themselves.

Speak up and strive to make a difference even if you don't think what you say counts, it really does!!! Having Red Hat Society sisters creates a unique and supporting role in a woman's life.  They are about Fun, Friendship, Freedom, Fulfillment, and Fitness. Within this combo package they strive to exude everything that is 'Simply Fun' for enjoying the essence of life, and remember everyone has a story to tell!
