|The "name" side of this egg|
|The "year" side of this egg|
I wanted to make this egg personalized for her, so after I settled on a design (deer with Christmas trees, night stars, and pine branches and holly berries), I added in her name and the year. I've written about 18 pysanky now, and consider myself very much a beginner. So writing names and drawing semi-involved designs really challenged me. But none-the-less, I did it.
|The top of the egg. Since it is a Christmas exchange, I thought the Christmas star was an appropriate finisher.|
