Swirly Ornaments

Happy Friday, everyone! In honor of the Spirit of Christmas I thought I would share some ornaments that I made last year. Yes, it has taken me a year to finally post about these. Procrastination - get me EVERY time. These ornaments are so cheap and easy to make! I wasn't going to do a tutorial buuuuuuttttt WHAT THE HECK, right? I'm on my lunchbreak and have nothing else to do or anywhere to go. 
1. Clear Glass Ornaments (Michael's or Hobby Lobby)
2. Multi Purpose Paint (You have to make sure it is approved for glass!)
3. Embellishments (I didn't embellish mine but you can put ribbons & feathers at the top to make extra pretty)

How To
1. Take top off of ornament and squeeze paint into bulb and swirl around
2. Add in another color (I would say you can add up to three colors because any more than that would look like something threw up in your ornament...LOL)
3. Keep swirling until all of the ornament is covered and turn the ornament upside down to drain the excess paint. (You should probably do this overnight)
4. Replace top and emellish ornament to your liking
5. Hang on tree or give to friends and family as gifts!

See? How easy is that? I would love to see your ornaments that you created! Leave a link in to your blog in my comments field so I can take a look.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

Tile Coasters

Happy Saturday! I haven't blogged in a while. Sometimes, I just feel like it's just a waste of time because no one seems to comment or read anything that I write. I guess I'll keep on typing anyway because it's a mild distraction from what I really have to do today and that's cleaning. Ugh. I wanted to share something new that I made with everyone out there in cyberspace. Take a look at these little beauties. COASTERS! These are tile coasters. You can get them at Lowe's for .16 cents a piece. It's a pretty cheap little creation. Please take a look at StyleMePretty's website. She gives you the full tutorial on how to make these. It's so easy and they are really fun to make. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

She sells seashells...

I love these glass ornaments. You can paint them, put plants in them or you can add sand and seashells like I did. Unfortunately, I didn't collect these shells at the beach. The shells and the sand came from my local craft store. I added a sliver of a stick that I found in my yard and put it in there as driftwood.

So cute. It's just a little bit of paradise when its cold and snowy outside at Christmas time!

Pretty as a Rose...

I am seriously in love with cabochons. I got them from Michael's and you can do pretty much anything with these little things.

My new found favorite thing to do with! How cute is this pendant and earrings set? I can't wait to get more colors! They are definitely on my "things to buy because I have to make something right now" list. I can't wait to actually make myself one but I really want to stock up on some inventory because I'm thinking about doing a Christmas bazaar this year. I really need to get my butt in gear and make stuff.

Scrabble Tile to Pendant

Aren't these the cutest little things you've ever seen? These current creations of mine are Scrabble tile pendants. They are so easy to make. So go get some Scrabble tiles - probably not from your board game because then it would be a little difficult to spell that one word you need to score double points - and create! I'll tell you how.

1. Scrabble tiles
2. Mod Podge or Elmer's School Glue
3. Patterned Paper or whatever your want to use to make your pendant
4. Loopy Pendant Thing - I forget what it's called and you can find them in the jewelry section of your local craft store
5. Glaze
6. Strong adhesive - E6000 is what I recommend

1. Find a section of your patterned paper that you want to design your tile with.
2. Place your tile on that section of the paper and cut around the tile leaving an edge
3. Brush glue onto the blank side of the tile and apply paper
4. Press firmly and cut the excess paper to the edge of the tile
5. Apply glaze - be sure to get rid of any bubbles - let dry
6. Apply E6000 to both surfaces - Loopy Silver Pendant thing and the tile - let it bond for at least 10 minutes for a strong hold
7. Wear your new pendant proud!

I would love to see your pendants! Please post your links to your blog in the comments section!

These little beauties are a product of yours truly. I don't know if anyone else has thought of something like this and I'm sure they have but I haven't seen it so I take credit until I'm told otherwise.

These are what I call HairMarks. Yes, I should trademark that name. Don't ya think? They are felt flower embellies w/ buttons sewn on to them and then they are glued on to a bobby pin. You can put these in your or your child's hair for a cute accessory or use them as a bookmark. 

Get the name HairMark?? Hair accessory. Bookmark. Clever, eh?

Right now I'm working on a plethora of things. Scrabble tile pendants. A Halloween wreath that is completely blowing my mind (that's a whole different ballgame and a whole other blog entry), cards, magnets, shrinky dink buttons...

Once I get all of these wonderful projects completed you will be able to see them for yourself. I know you are so excited! Me too!

I hope you are staying dry if you are on the East Coast. It's a little damp where I am and I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day Weekend!

I think I have a problem. Okay, it's probably not a problem but I think I have an unhealthy obsession with pumpkins. That sounds like a problem doesn't it? Oh well, call it what you want. Now that I have my own house and I'm excited to decorate for Halloween. Yes, I know, it's over a month away but for some reason I just can't wait to decorate for the holiday.

So, while I'm wallerin' in boredom, I thought I would share some neat ideas for decorating your punkins this season. Enjoy!

Something Borrowed, Something Blue

In honor of my cousin getting married on Saturday, I thought that I would just have a post of beautiful blue photos. I hope that you get inspired to make something with this array of photos. I guess this could be taken as a challenge. If you make something...I would love to see it!
