dear friends, Julie and Jen, who were visiting all the way from sunny California left today and I immediately wanted to share some of the fun things we made this year. If you are a regular reader then you have probably heard about this flurry of crafting that comes along with any visits from my friends and fellow Etsians. I am pretty proud of us this year although I think it's safe to say that we never get as many projects done as we would like.
Vitrea paints. They can be heat set in your oven so they are dishwasher-safe. How Julie gets her handwriting so perfect is beyond me. I didn't even try. I opted for flowers (imagine that).
this tutorial which I had bookmarked ages ago but never honestly thought I would ever have an opportunity or reason to try it. When this precious new family member came into Julie and Jen's lives I threw the idea out there and was thrilled when they said they wanted to try it. I think we would all agree that this is a labor intensive project but well worth it.
And now, I'm off to check in with some blogs I have been missing, I can't wait to see what everyone else has been making!
