Holiday Nesting


© 2010 Cameron Blazer // Cottage Industrialist
Easter and Passover are nearly upon us, and I haven't dyed the first egg. But I don't feel bad because I have whipped up these sweet little birds' nests and filled them with candy eggs.

"Splendor in the Grass" Easter Placecards

"Early is just as bad as late," he spat.

Having committed the grave offense of arriving at a job interview 5 minutes early, I was quickly chastened by the funny little man's apparently boundless disgust for my pre-punctuality. And from there, the opportunity of a lifetime with one of my favorite writers quickly devolved into a comedy of errors I'll never forget. Needless to say, I didn't get the job.

So you'll understand if that experience solidified my commitment to procrastination. Look, I realize that Easter is, oh, 48 hours away, but you'd never know it at our house. No eggs, no chocolate bunnies, no Peeps, no baskets. It's not that I don't care. It's just...I'd rather get a B+ on a great paper (with a letter grade off for lateness) than a B on a decent paper turned in on time.

So here's my Easter project, offered here at the very last minute: placecards (or gift tags, if that suits you better) featuring a pair of sweet springtime friends. As usual, you can download this PDF for personal, non-commercial use. There are 8 cards per page, and they rely on the same template as the patterned calling cards I offered earlier in the week (though these are not fill-in-able; you'll have to write the names or messages by hand).

Happy Easter
