my all time favorite Twine choice so 
this is a big deal for me!

I decided to showcase a couple of 
awesome colors called

I filled two Hillbilly Wine Glasses with
White and Orange candies.
I cut the faces in vinyl  
from the Silhouette Studio,
Trendy Twine to wrap around the top
of the jar just under the lid.
I changed out the regular lids to black ones.

It was such an easy and cute project that
I plan to do again for maybe a Christmas project.

I used the Vampire file from 
Miss Kate Cuttables, put it on
a cute tag and attached it to a
skinny treat bag full of gumballs.
The sentiment is from
the Jaded Blossom stamp set called

Halloween Mummy

Hello Everyone!

I LOVE Halloween and I'm getting
kind of sad that it's almost here and gone.

Since there are only a couple more days to
post Halloween projects, I thought I would 
share this cute little card I made.

Here it is...

Isn't this adorable?  I love it!

I used the Cute Mummy from 
Miss Kate Cuttables.
I created this shape card from 
one of the Tags from Miss Kate's 
Tags and Backgrounds set and created
an inset shadow layer.  Then I used 
the spider web border from Miss Kate's 
Spider Borders set. Once it was all 
together, I added the sentiment from
the Goosebumps! stamp set from 
Scrappy Mom's and
finished it off with a fun Action Wobble
that I got from the Queen's 
Royal Castle Shoppe.  

Hope you like my little card I made...

love to read them all :)

Happy Halloween!

Playing with my
Air Eraser...

Hi Everyone!
Playing with my Air Eraser again.

I made these cute little gifts.  I think they 
turned out pretty good.  I wanted to try out
the new Rub & Buff that I just got.

Here they are...
(Click on the pic to enlarge)
Starbucks coffee jar cleaned out and reused
Used White Rub & Buff on the candycane

Christmas Ornament from Michaels
Used Pewter Rub & Buff on the snowflake 

Little spice jar from Michaels
Used White Rub & Buff on the snowflake

All you do is Rub the wax paint (Rub & Buff) over the etched
image and it adheres to it.  It won't adhere to the
smooth glass.  I left it sit for less than a minute
and "Rubbed and Buffed" off the excess.  It really makes 
the etching pop.  This is just for decorative purposes.  It 
won't do well on something that is washed often.

I sure love this Air Eraser.

Hope you enjoyed my projects today :)

Have a GREAT Day!

Breast Cancer
Etched Glasses

Hello Everyone!

Well, I finally made the switch
from Etching Cream to an
Air Eraser...

WHY didn't I do this a looooong time ago?

This is my first project using 
my new toy.

Close Up


I etched this ribbon onto a couple
of champagne glasses to
send to a friend of mine. I used my new 
Air Eraser that I got 
at Harbor Freight this weekend.

What an amazing difference it was 
from using cream.  
It was so fast and easy and the 
design came out so clear.  If you 
are using cream, I urge you to 
invest in an Air Eraser.

I can't wait to make more etched glass
gifts.  For now, I have to get these
in the mail :)

Hope you liked my post today.  Please
leave me a comment.  You know how I love
to read them !

Have a GREAT Day!

Lollipop Holders

Hello Everyone!

It's Fall and I'm loving it...
My favorite time of year.

I have been working on some 
Lollipop Holders for your 
Fall Festivities...

Last year, I made a cute little Mayflower
3D Place card holder for my Thanksgiving table.
Click HERE to see it and get all the details. 

So, to go along with last year's theme, 
I decided to make a Mayflower
Lollipop Holder along with a
Pumpkin and a Pilgrim Hat.

They turned out really cute
