Glass Etching Cream (put it on thick & leave it on a loooong time):
My boys putting on the tiles:
We decided to do mosaic tiles on the edges of the blocks:
Yep, we're making 4 for his 4 sets of grandparents!
For this challenge, you DO NOT have to make these blocks! ANY altered art project that you are currently making (perhaps a Christmas gift?) will work just fine. Happy Crafting!

Oh and btw, the wreath does NOT have to be from that pattern I posted, pretty much just any wreath you make for this challenge will work (I'm easy that way)
Thursday, December 9, 2010
and I made the bells out of silver glitter paper from Making Memories, made them two-faced in case they get flipped over both sides are pretty :-) I went crazy with the spritzes and there are some "puddles" but there's nothing I can really do about that.
My wreath justs got BIG and I mean REALLY BIG! Here's the TUTORIAL I used and here are a few of my steps I took. All I can say is, I'm not good at rolling these things at all, lol
a center layer yet not a center.... wet glue!
I hope to be finished 100% tomorrow night & will post an update for you

Excuse: Monday night my 9yo son's Guinea Pig, Minos, died after being taken to the vet & on meds. So I convinced dh that ds needs a cat (ds wanted a cat so it worked out well), last night we went to the Animal Shelter to see what was available and, of course, he fell in love with a little girl tuxedo kitty named Checkers and we put in an application to adpot her. I'll find out today if we're approved or not. Here they are:

That sparkly stuff - Polymark Dimensional Fabric Paint that I got free from a swap table (nope, I didn't even leave anything behind)
Dh liked the bright red Santa better than the darker red which is a Sharpie on my desk at work, the darker red is a Copic marker on my desk at home
Please leave me a message after you post your creation!

As a child, my parents best friends were another couple, Sherry & Johnny. My very BEST memories of my childhood involve them. They had no children of their own, this made it easier to pretend I was theirs from time to time. They were an amazing couple! Cool cars, a canary yellow Corvette and a canary yellow Jeep Wrangler. I never got to ride in the 'Vette but spend many a day 4-wheeling around in the Jeep. Canoeing with them would mean I got beer even though I was only a kid this was permitted (it was the 70's!). Sherry had this beautiful long jet black hair, ultra hip clothes and jewelry. Johnny looked like a modern day mountain man but with the biggest heart and quick wit of any man I'd ever met. They had lion statues next to their front door since Lyon was their last name. My parents never fought when we were with Sherry & Johnny; these were the happiest days. Many years ago, we lost Johnny to breast cancer... yes, men can get breast cancer too.
A few months ago I met Mel on scrapbook.com since we're both from Arkansas, we chatted about scrapping together & made a play date for ourselves. Melody brought along her sister Dana. At first sight I thought, this lady scraps?! No way... she isn't plump, she's got some of the longest legs you've ever seen... just didn't fit what I had in my head as "one of us". Let the bonding being! We laughed, joked, got a little teary-eyed and became a little like sisters that day. Dana very recently was diagnosed and has begun going thur her options and making decisions. Her wonderful (real) sister, Melody, is organizing a Walk for Dana benefit on November 20 in Ft. Smith, Arkansas. I'm trying to help put together a silent auction item and maybe a few other things, plus work for them that day doing whatever they need me to do... Gopher? My card is dedicated to Dana
I used umWowStudio's Sketch Mania #16 for my basic card design.
using random number generator......
with a total of 17 entries......
it was #15 Heather! (just FYI if you count them, throw out the very first one as that is mine & I don't need to win my own stuff! lol)
So Heather, please email me with your mailing info & I'll get that out to you ASAP!
