Hello, my name is Kathy Grimm. I am an artist, a former art teacher, and an archivist living in St. Louis, Mo. Easter Egg Crafts is my online journal dedicated to the arts, history and literature of those Christians who practice both the customs of Easter and who also believe in the divinity of Christ.
      Although not all of the content found here is unique or original, it is sometimes necessary for art teachers to adapt the contents of a web journal for easy access by their students and colleagues. Teachers may feel free to utilize these resources in their classrooms as they wish. However, I ask that you not propagate the jpgs. on alternative public websites because many of these are either my own original materials or have been significantly restored by myself for the expressed purpose of resourcing the materials to teachers. This does not limit, however, the number of copies that artists and crafters may produce apart from of the internet for their own private or creative interests.
Where do the materials come from and how may these be used?
      Some of the articles, all of the craft instructions and those original materials by Kathy Grimm are copyrighted. Make sure that you know what is what before presuming it to be public domain resource. All of the coloring pages, worksheets, puzzles, cartoons and illustrated poems are either cleaned and restored here or are created entirely by myself or my family members.
      The photography with copyright notices used in the craft articles is the sole property of Kathy Grimm and may not be used elsewhere on the web unless, you use the blogs' "reblog" software button located beneath the post. Google also sometimes uses our photos to link to our site through images or by maintaining web history through their archive.org searches. By submitting our content to Google we agree with the practice, however, this does not mean that we have similar agreements with webmasters who claim to have search pages that do not provide a direct link to our blog with every image or post listed. Search pages at pinterest.com do provide direct image linking to our blog, so this search software is a good example of a company software using a correct and ethical linking practice.
      The videos posted on this blog belong to their prospective owners and are not in the public domain! These videos are provided by the youtube.com services freely in order to promote viral searches that are related under the category of education on this blog. When you upload a video at youtube, you agree to this practice.
      Some of the content redistributed on this blog comes from the generous people at wikipedia.org. Wikipedia freely distributes both encyclopedia articles or current articles that have been both dedicated to the public domain or have passed into the public domain by default. These articles may be freely printed by all school teachers. However, the articles should not be misrepresented as belonging to people who have not actually written them. If you include these in a publishing hard copy, you must reference their original authors in the back of the book, assignment, or report as you would for any resource used or quoted when compiling a book or turning in a paper.
      All poetry transcribed on the blog is in the public domain. If the author is not listed with the poem then I do not know who wrote it. I am, however, certain that the poetry is in the public domain. If I know the author of the poem, I note him or her with the poem.
