1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: First try at etching glass... on: December 28, 2011 07:32:15 AM
Nice work on the jar.  Crooked?  It's handmade - it's not stamped out on a machine?!
A  tip on the etching cream...  You can scrape it off and re-use it! I used to do that before graduating to a blasting cabinet and my gun...

Nice work Krista!  I too have a Cricut, but I also have the dreaded MTC which make my Cricut the bomb!  Are you using a transfer tape to transfer your images to the glassware?  also I know how difficult it is to place the vinyl on a curved area...

I was thinking of the solid colored coffee mugs - etching on the outside - Mom's Sippy Cup - I talked to a fell at Home Depot yesterday and he suggested penetrating grout sealer (two coats) which will keep it from absorbing too much water... I'm just playin' while I a have a few days off...

I have a sand blaster and love the look on my wine glasses (redneck wine glasses) Nothing fancy just words, but it is turning out pretty profitable for me. I want to etch on eramic plate - - not to eat from, but to protect it.  Any ideas?
5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stencils for Etching on: June 24, 2011 08:21:11 PM
I have ben etching on glass for a few months now and use my Cricut to make the stencils on contact paper (the old fashioned kind that has adhesive on the back) I then etch with my sand blaster... I starte out using armour etching crem, but the redneck wine glases that I etch are starting to fly soI opted for the sand blaster... So much fun... Here's  few pics of my glasses and other things...

I use a small santa hat as a topper to my tree - the splash of red might be fun and I am all about fun with my two grands living with us...

There is no such thing as white ink (only the absence of ink/color on a white shirt. ) HTH
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: brother sewing machine on: August 28, 2008 08:30:55 PM
My Janome went on the fritz AGAIN so I just bought myself a Brother machine for $139 at Wal-Mart.  It has the drop in bobbin - a MUST for me... There are 50 buiilt in statches.  It is the CE-5000PRW computerized.  I really abuse my machines so I did a lot of checking and this one has a 25 yr warranty.  Sew nice and looks liek ti will work fine - I sew at least two hours a day and tons more when I need to make a bunh of things for upcoming craft shows...  I also have a Juki serger which gets a workout daily.  I treat my machine with tender loving care weekly and change needles monthly unless I notice skipping.  Hope this helps.

Ok - ya'll have to remember my name is Grandma Bonnie and I earned it...  I make Wienie Washers, Willy Warmers, Exotic Rubber Plants, Redneck Viagra.  I would be happy to give anyone the directions and poems I use to embelish them.  I sell items at the Farmer's Market and people won't let me stop making the gag gifts.  I love to make people laugh and it works! Oh I also have poems to attach for toilet paper - Cowby TP, You've Been Bad TP etc. etc...
