hello! i hope all is well with everyone. 'tis the season when we start wishin' for a few extra hours in a day. i will be adding an extra 8 hours to my list, santa did you hear that? i'm lookin' for TIME, wrap it up pretty with a big pink bow. while i'm waiting for that jolly 'ole elf to slide down my chimney with that new present i have to do the best i can with what i'm workin with. i returned to a non-nursing 35 hour per week job. this positon seems more my speed right now. i'm just looking to help with household extras and tuck some $$ away for my booth space and the BIG plan...save towards a brick & mortar place of my own. i'd like to share a quick project with you all just in case you're lookin for santa to bring you the same gift as i've asked for. utility/worship candle from the dollar store all decked out in holiday rub-on's this took 10 minutes to do. i had a little trouble getting the rub-on to "melt" to the glass, but i solved the problem by using a blow dryer on the glass to heat it up. i added the little ribbon just to dress it up some. very cute & easy. well, i need to catch up on blog reading. take care.

i think snow globes are magical. i remember doing a craft project in grammar school or it could have been brownies. it's been a long time since i was in either one. we used baby food jars, oil, glitter and plastic objects like prizes from the gum ball machine or cracker jack box. i remember loving the time we spent working on the project. we made them as christmas gifts for our parents. i was thrilled when my mom opened it and made a fuss. crafting was fun 38 years ago and i'm still enjoying it. these two snow globes were designed using vintage candle stick holders the base the angels are sitting on. the domes i picked up from michael's, snow flakes and a banner wishing winter blessings, a little glitter and glam. today i took them over to my booth i sure hope they find a home quick they're really cute!
