If it's worth doing, it's worth doing abundantly!

I just got a bunch of projects back from a book I wrote about glue, and thought you guys might like to see these.  They are just melamine cups that I found at a thrift store in San Francisco last year, glued to the tops of black painted candlesticks.  Then as you can see, I glued little black buttons all around and wrote my name with a black sharpie.  Added the ribbons, and now they are perfect to hold candies, or what not.  Too fun, and way easy.

My motto: "Have FUN with it!"
There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Those are fantastical!  I want to drink cocktails out of them and pretend it's happy hour in Wonderland.  Now where did that cat disappear to?
