More Christmas cards and glass etchings.....

Hello my Crafty friends!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend!!  I am!  We had an early Christmas dinner with some friends last night and today was very low key! I finally put my tree up and some other decorations around the house.  I really was not feeling it for some reason this year, but after going to my friends house and seeing all her beautiful decor and the joyous atmosphere, I was inspired to do mine!  I tried to upload a video of some of my decor, but it wouldn't cooperate. Maybe I'll post pics tomorrow.......anyway.......
Here is my daughter Brandi with her friend Nikka who also acts and sings!  She will be in 2 movies coming out next year!!  So proud of her.
I hate to go to someone's house empty handed, even though I was told NOT to bring anything, I just had to take them gifts and a card.  Since Nikka sings, I put a microphone on her glass and her initial.
Her brother, Andrei, plays tennis very well, so I found a stick figure tennis player for his glass and his initial.
And their Mom, Manuelita, who is one of the sweetest people I have known, likes to drink coffee...so I made her a set of coffee mugs.  So after dinner last night she and I enjoyed a cup of coffee in her new mugs!
I placed gold foil paper in the mugs so you can see the designs.  I also made a few more cards too.
I love the look with the different backgrounds and borders.
That's it for me today....thanks for stopping by!  I hope to see you soon!  And may you be blessed over this Christmas season!!  Be safe and come back by soon!

Hello Friend......

Hello my Crafty friends!  One of my long time friends, Joyce, who is like a sister to me, wasn't feeling well, so I made her a card to cheer her up! She loved it!  It brought a smile to her face!!  Glad she's feeling better. I used a Tim Holtz die  for the typewriter and a MCT teeny tags tag for the bottom sentiment.
I embossed the card with an Anna Griffin folder.
The sentiment inside was a sticker from Anna Griffin.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the borders.
       The lower pic is not blurred.....it's on a wobble!!  I love wobbles!!  Wobble baby, Wobble baby!  LOL
Well, that's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you come back soon...and I would love for you to leave some feed back!  I love reading your comments!

More glass etching!!

Hello my Crafty friends!   I think I am in love with my air eraser tool!!  I have been etching glasses like crazy!!  I so enjoy it!!  It gives me such a natural high to look at the things that I make.....then I think, WOW!! I did that?  It feels so good!  So here are a few more glasses I did this week!

My youngest daughter Brandi is in a sorority at church called EKO.  For their Christmas party they had a White Elephant, so I made a glass with their Greek letters on it and the year 2013. I decorated a gift bag also.  She told me that every one wanted the glass!  It was swapped 3 times in the first 5 minutes!!  LOL  I got 3 orders too!  :-)

Well, this is what I have been up to this past week!  I hope you like my glasses I etched!  It was so much fun!  Thanks for coming by!  I hope you come by again soon!
