Wow.. another few days of icky weather... ahhh..but finally .. today we had some sunshine. (still freezing cold..but at lease.. sunshine). I did get caught up on some things around here while I was "inside", so that felt good. For a while there, I was so deep in CHA projects I had to put other things on the back burner. Now I'm playing catch up. Speaking of projects, I can finally share some.
I've been wanting to show you more about how fun Tattered Angels .. Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze are on Glass. When I knew one of my assignments would be working with glass, I started keeping my eyes open for something "glass" to alter. While I was at my favorite little treasure place I found this vase for $1. It was clear glass.
I liked it because it was such an unusual shape. AND the fact that the tag on it actually said... "Weird Vase"
lol, I don't know why I found that so funny .. but I did :)
I used "Organic Garden" Glimmer Glam and "Mellow Yellow" Glimmer Glam on the clear glass vase. I did a couple of layers of the Green Glam , added some random brush strokes of the Yellow Glaze. The Chain and charm piece I found at Precious Treasures. I punched out that funky little numbered paper for the center of the charm.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I like it when what you imagined in your head ... turns out just that way. yippee.
Well, I told you we had some icky weather the past few days. I STAYED IN! Which worked out well actually because I had planned to take a few days this week to catch up on "house things", and just enjoy home! ( outside of my craft room).
I did exciting stuff like... dusted , vacuumed, did laundry, tore apart and organized the closet, you know .. fun stuff like that. ha
But I did enjoy doing some things I really do like to do.. like bake...
and spend some with my sweetest pups. (Aly wasn't as excited about getting her photo taken)
Today, the snow stopped , and the sun even came out. I left my cave and went and got groceries. A little sunshine and some time in the car, with a good CD!
As my sis and I were just talking about yesterday, sometimes you just have to look a bit harder to find the "beauty" ... come February in Nebraska. But it's there.....
This tree is on the county road as you turn off to our house. I don't know what it is about it..but I'm always just drawn to it. It's beautiful ... Winter, Summer, Spring or Fall. I wonder how many times I've photographed it? I think alot.
Have a happy day!
