Look at What I Made – DIY Etched Glass and Stained Glass Containers

I’m back at work today after my birthday vacation last week. Actually I was back to work over the weekend trying to get caught up. Vacation is fun and all, but not the getting behind on work part… While I was on vacation, Organic Authority shared a post I wrote for them that I thought … read more

Ikea <3

Well, I came across a pin to this project and I thought that’s the perfect thing. I also had some off that great Martha glitter … read more

The Origin of Buttons

Remember last week when I shared the buttons that peeps sent me? Well, here’s what I did with them. Not all of them, of course, but this is only my first button project.  I think it turned out really well and I’m quite pleased with it. I’m calling it “The Origin of Buttons” and I’m … read more
