These pretty string wrapped eggs are perfect for Easter decorations and are quick and easy to make without having to use messy glue. Use baker’s twine to add a trendy look to your eggs. First, dab a fast-grab tacky glue to the bottom of a paper mache egg and coil the string around. To change colors, trim the first color and glue the end of the second color. For a seamless finish, coil the string around the top, trim and dab on some glue.

         4. Doodled Eggs

Calling all artists for this one. Freehand your favorite patterns, designs and words onto plain or dyed eggs for a one-of-a-kind look. Here, trendy floral designs provide a sophisticated look in metallic gold. First, pick up a few coloring books to use as a reference. Then sketch out simplified versions of a few floral motifs onto a piece of paper to use as a guide. Pick up 1-2 dozen jumbo white eggs, and hard-boil them carefully and get creative.

5. Washi-Taped Eggs

Washi tape can be used for both decorative and everyday uses, but now, it’s being used on Easter eggs, too. To get the look pictured, simply use a standard roll of washi tape in the color or pattern of your choice and begin cutting small pieces at a diagonal. Adhere the pieces to form a mosaic effect. You can also use strips of washi tape and overlap them vertically at the top and bottom.

6. Jewelled Eggs

Take a less traditional approach for dying Easter eggs this year and dazzle them instead! Add some glitz and glam to your Easter eggs with sparkling rhinestones. First, if you want, paint your eggs with acrylic paint and let dry. Then place stick-on rhinestones in various colors and sizes to create the pattern of your choice. These classic egg designs will make your decorations stand out.

             7. Speckled Eggs

Create natural and classic-looking faux eggs by applying a splatter effect to paper-mache eggs. Use an artist’s brush to apply beige acrylic paint to paper-mache eggs. Mix dark brown acrylic paint with a water-based faux glaze. While wearing gloves, dip a toothbrush into the mixture and run your thumb through the bristles to splatter the dark glaze onto the eggs.

              8. Glue-Strip Dyed Eggs

Use plain hard-boiled eggs and stick on glue strips where desired. You can create a planned pattern or stick them in unexpected places for a surprising finish. Dye your eggs, then peel off strips when cool and dry to reveal overlapping white lines. You could also make stunning designs out of intricate-designed stencils. This one is an easy yet impressive decoration idea.

No power adapter with iPhone 12? WHAAAAT?

Apple has no plans to include a power adapter or EarPods in the box with the iPhone 12 models, letting the company cut down on production costs and packaging. Instead, Apple may offer a 20W power adapter that can be purchased separately. The USB-C to Lightning cable could get an upgrade, though, with rumours indicating Apple plans to offer a new braided cable design.

Delays due to COVID-19

iPhone 12 models will not ship out in September as usual due to delays caused by the global health crisis this year. Apple instead plans to introduce the iPhones in October, perhaps on October 13, and start shipping them out later that month. Rumours have suggested we can expect a staggered release, and some models might not come out until November.

Keeping all the excitement aside, we know that the difference with this iPhone and the rest won’t be that much. But we will still buy it because it’s a style statement. How else will all the tik-tokers and our beloved celebrities take mirror selfies?

But there’s one thing we are darn happy about- THE PRICE!

Marijuana: How It Effects Your Mind & Body

Published

on

By

Marijuana, weed, pot, dope, grass. They’re different names for the same drug that comes from the cannabis plant. You can smoke it, vape it, drink it, or eat it. Most folks use marijuana for pleasure and recreation. But a growing number of doctors prescribe it for specific medical conditions and symptoms.

Marijuana has mind-altering compounds that affect both your brain and body. It can be addictive, and it may be harmful to some people’s health. Here’s what can happen when you use marijuana:

 

It May Affect Your Mental Health

Not everyone’s experience with marijuana is pleasant. It often can leave you anxious, afraid, or panicked. Using pot may raise your chances for clinical depression or worsen the symptoms of any mental disorders you already have. Scientists aren’t yet sure exactly why. In high doses, it can make you paranoid or lose touch with reality so you hear or see things that aren’t there.

 

Your Thinking May Get Distorted

Marijuana can cloud your senses and judgment. The effects can differ depending on things like how potent your pot was, how you took it, and much marijuana you’ve used in the past. It might:

  • Heighten your senses (colors might seem brighter and sounds might seem louder)
  • Distort your sense of time
  • Hurt your motor skills and make driving more dangerous

 

You May Get Hooked

About 1 in 10 people who use pot will become addicted. That means you can’t stop using it even if it harms your relationships, job, health, or finances. The risk is greater the younger you start marijuana and the more heavily you use it. For instance, the odds of addiction are 1 in 6 if you use pot in your teens. It might be as high as 1 in 2 among those who use it every day.

You could also grow physically dependent on marijuana. Your body could go into withdrawal, leaving you irritable, restless, unable to sleep, and uninterested in eating.

 

It May Impair Your Brain

Marijuana can make it harder for you to focus, learn, and remember things. This seems to be a short-term effect that lasts for 24 hours or longer after you stop smoking.

But using pot heavily, especially in your teen years, may leave more permanent effects. Imaging tests with some — but not all — adolescents found that marijuana may physically change their brains. Specifically, they had fewer connections in parts of the brain linked to alertness, learning, and memory, and tests show lower IQ scores in some people.

 

Your Lungs May Hurt

How Smoking Marijuana Affects Your Lungs

Pot smoke can inflame and irritate your lungs. If you use it regularly, you could have the same breathing problems as someone who smokes cigarettes. That could mean ongoing cough with colored mucus. Your lungs may more easily pick up infections. That’s partly because THC seems to weaken some users’ immune systems.

 

Though some might also say, that Marijuana has ZERO deaths recorded directly linked to it. Which is true. Some may also suggest that alcohol is more dangerous. Which may only seem fair to say. But do you really want to take the gamble?
