Chigiri-e Lanterns

I made these Chigiri-e Lanterns for a swap on OSA last month. The returns should be mailed out soon, so I thought I would share my submisison. I kept it simple as this was around when we returned back to Taiwan, and I was suffering from that terrible flu. I’ve heard that some of the entries were quite elaborate so I hope I don’t disappoint anyone.

Our official easter egg hunt was postponed to next week because of weather. We had friends over for an impromptu hunt (plastic eggs filled with stickers in our community room) and I had a chance to try out my new Japanese egg molds. They are the coolest things, we ate bunny shaped eggs! My skills are still developing so no pictures. Perhaps for the picnic next weekend.
