I'm Already Thinking About Christmas
As crazy as it is I have already started thinking about Christmas. This year I want to try to make a good portion of the Christmas gifts we give away. You can imagine how long it is going to take to complete all those gifts, so I figured that I better get started now.
The funny thing is that as soon as I decided that I needed to start on Christmas gifts I became distracted by the next exciting craft I am going to try - Glass Fusing!!! I already have most of the supplies because I can use my PMC kiln for fusing and I used to do stained glass so I have all of the glass cutters, griders, etc. All I really needed was some kiln paper and glass, which I ordered today online.
Here is a link to the Etsy shop that inspired me to actually start a glass fusing project. I have been thinking about it a long time but this was the motivation I needed.
The other project that will probably be distracting me from making Christmas present is that I have always admired Luly Bugs jewelry but I have never tried to make anything similar because I didn't want to have to deal with concrete. Well I was talking to a friend about it last night and he suggested that I just use grout because you can buy small amounts, it is cheap, and it comes in a ton of colors! I don't know why I didn't think of that. I am so excited to try something like that out!!!
