18 Easter #Fails to Distract You from Egg Decorating
Take a quick look around at your accomplishments: easter wreaths, intricately decorated eggs and curated gift baskets. When you think about it, Easter is a seriously crafty holiday. While that’s *totally* up your alley, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Once you factor in breakable Easter eggs and awkward Easter bunny photo ops, things are guaranteed to get a little interesting. Take a quick break from nailing those Easter decor DIYs and enjoy a few LOLs from these Easter mishaps!
1. Bunny at the Bar: After hours and hours of long lines, crying kids and flashing cameras, a little happy hour sesh is definitely just what this Easter bunny needs. You could also probably use a spring cocktail, come to think of it. (via @cynot)
2. Melted Bunny: One of the best and worst things about spring is the unpredictable weather. This poor chocolate bunny probably thought some time left alone in the car was a good idea. (via @kristimcallen)
3. Say Cheese?: Pet photo ops aren’t just for Santa Claus, and it turns out that those photos can also be just as uncomfortable. (via @gritcycle)
4. Deviled Chicks: When you’re working with eggs about a million different things can go wrong. This recipe doesn’t look exactly like the tutorial, but we’re sure they’re just as delicious. (via @vetdoc75)
5. Easter House Fail: Gingerbread houses during the holidays are serious business. It turns out working with marshmallow Peeps doesn’t make edible construction any easier. (via @leonardsandi)
6. Doggy Dress Up: Let’s be honest — our pets just aren’t as psyched to get dressed up as we are. But that doesn’t make those ‘grams any less adorable. (via @lizandchloe)
7. Janky Egg: One of the best things about hard-boiled eggs is that when they’re dropped, it only makes it easier to eat them. The cracks add character, right?! (via @andrea_schnei)
8. Bacon Salt Basket Fail: Creating Easter baskets is serious business. Just why this toddler received bacon salt from the Easter Bunny, we may never know. (via @0livebuddha)
9. Breaker Box Eggs: Hiding Easter eggs is no easy feat, but it’s a little shocking (pun intended) that someone thought these hiding places were a good idea for little hands. (via @navypilotnik)
10. Easter Dye Fail: Wearing something nice when you’re working with colorful dyes isn’t the best idea. Look at it as an opportunity to add some color to your eggs and your clothes! (via @ashleygayledownes)
11. Empty Shelves: Waiting until the last minute to score some holiday candy and decorations is never a good idea. Waiting until the day after to score some stuff on sale? That’s a different story. (via @lexistential)
12. Baby vs. Easter Chicks: Being a baby during a holiday is hard work. It looks like an adorable photo sesh just wasn’t in the cards that day. (via @thesatinsheets)
13. Egg Boil Fail: Decorating eggs is the most exciting part of getting your Easter game ready. Just don’t forget to boil the eggs first! (via @jharnett03)
14. Hot Car Bunnies: These bunnies may have lost their visual appeal, but they’re probably still delicious! This is definitely a pair that will be omitted from the baskets and left for the adults. (via @becberk)
15. Paintball Bunny Pancake: Every holiday should kick off with a seasonally appropriate breakfast. That said, this pancake is probably best left at the bottom of the stack. (via @jenniferleephotography)
16. Toddler 1, Chick 0: Kiddos definitely like to add their personal touch to everything. This poor chick never stood a chance. (via @clarehilszzzzz)
17. Dog Shaming Fail: Our pets may not want to partake in the seasonal costumes and photo ops with the Easter bunny, but they’re always down for some treats. It looks like the post-feast shaming isn’t working out so well with this proud pup. (via @shonnabeans)
18. Easter Bunny Fail: Paying the Easter bunny a visit can be a terrifying experience and this captured encounter is about as good as it gets. (via @squeaksandcheeks)

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
