OK, I should take a copywriting course! With Easter eggs all over the net, I decided to create my own line of freshly designed eggs. Maybe I’ll even put some up for sale here, too.

That way, when it comes to painting them on, you don’t need to paint and then rotate, as all options appear as thumbnails in the Brushes pallette.

Here’s what fmr had to say:
