liebschien received her package yesterday, but hasn't been feeling too well. So I told her I'd post a couple of the pictures I took.

I sent an etched glass dog treat jar for her pup, filled with baked dog treats. Unfortunately, it's really tough to photograph etched glass with my crappy work camera (you'd think I would have remembered to take them at home with my good camera, but I realised as I was boxing it up that I hadn't)



It's got tiny dog bones etched all over, and a couple of big bones and fire hydrants etched along the top. And just because I'm a dork...



I also included some people treats -- Canadian chocolate! Hopefully it will help you feel better!  Kiss And feel free to post better pictures when you're well. Let's see if you have any luck snapping the design!

Well, originally I picked it up from my dad who built a giant sand-blaster to etch glass and mirror (it's literally a giant contraption hooked up to an air compressor that blasts sand at your glass/vase/mirror/etc scratching the surface and leaving a design). He's actually done some really cool things with it. But dragging it into the back yard and hooking it up is a pain, especially in the winter. Plus you have to be increadably attentive and patient.

Glass etching cream, on the other hand, is way easier! Although it doesn't have the same "craftsmen-ship" to it, it tends to run if you don't watch it, and leaving it on for x amount of time will have different results under x number of circumstances... it's soooo much faster and convenient.

So essentially, the cream is easier but the results are less reliable, I guess. I certainly recommend it though, and be sure to check out the various boards on the matter.

I hope that answered your question, rosali. If not, feel free to ask more!  Cheesy

After a few days of worrying, thinking this was lost (it took foreeeeeeever), my package from reneecarol has now arrived!

She sent me a really cute little tote bag, a scarf in gorgeous colors and a 'girly' notepad.
