Hi Guys! Remember Me??? LOL!
I've suffered a serious case of blogger withdrawal while away and missed everyone!
My computer is still down, ....been too busy to try and fix it. But I realized today, that I could post and blog from Ashley's laptop! :) ...Don't know why I didn't think of that before.
Anyhow, I have an abundance of material backlogged, so I have tons to share! Now I just have to figure out where to start, LOL........
How about with a "Martha~inspired" project!
Remember a few Christmas' ago, when Martha "glittered" inexpensive dime store birds and they looked amazing, like a million bucks??? ....okay, maybe a half a million! :)
They were super cute!
I gathered feathered birds from the dollar store and glitter in all colors, the finest that Wal-mart had to offer. (I'm limited on craft materials in our small town.) Unfortunately, my birds turned out really gaudy and cheap looking, due in large to the "school~project" quality glitter.
Wal-mart now offers a new line of Martha Stewart Glitter in many glorious colors!
I am in glitter~bling heaven!!!
My first (good) Glitter~Project....
Step 1: Glue the "tops" back on the acorns....
Found a glass canister in the pantry, hot~glued a Dollar Tree Candle Holder to the bottom....
Step 3: Filled the container with a mixture of glittered and "natural" acorns....
I think Martha would be much more impressed with the acorns than my sad attempt at the Christmas birds! LOL!
(Maybe I will try the feathered friends again with the new glitter!)
