1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Glitter balls on: November 21, 2009 12:46:02 AM
I know, I know, but what do you call these other than glitter balls?

The glitter's on the inside, so they look nice and don't make a mess!

All you need is:
-clear glass ornaments
-adhesive spray glue

Take the hanger top off the ornament.
Hold the glue nozzle up to the opening and spray. Spray enough so there's a little liquid collecting in the ornament. Rotate the ornament to coat the inside.
Sprinkle glitter through the opening, via a funnel or a folded piece of paper. You can put one color on some sections, then pour another color in and rotate to coat the inside.
Let dry, then put the hanger back in!

Hope you enjoy my glitter balls Smiley

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / pie cherries? on: July 05, 2008 04:00:31 PM
We have two cherry trees that produce copious amounts of pie (not sweet) cherries each summer. I have no idea what to do with them. I supposed I could can and/or freeze them, but then what? Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm tired of the birds being the only ones who eat them!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / not exactly crafty... wood floors on: April 15, 2007 01:51:23 PM
Ok, this isn't exactly a craft project, but my hhusband and I are getting ready to install wood (actually, laminate) flooring. The issue is that our house has (real) wood paneling on the ceiling. It's kind of cabin-style. So what do we do: match the floor to the paneling, or go with something different so that it isn't too much of the same? Does anyone have any suggestions? I can post pictures if needed.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / favors... is this dorky? on: August 04, 2006 12:05:46 AM
For wedding favors, I wanted to come up with something
not very big (lots of people flying in)

So I was thinking... marble magnets. I was thinking of making sets of 6, in our wedding colors, and putting in little tins decorated with a custom label. Is that totally dorky? If you went to a wedding and got that, would you throw it away immediately?
Thanks for your help!
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Garage to bedroom to craft room (image heavy!!) on: April 30, 2006 01:29:23 PM
This is the story of a room that lived three very different lives...

In its first life, the room was just a part of the garage that had been semi-walled in. It had a concrete floor, no insulation, lots of dust and lots of junk being stored in it.
after being partially cleaned:

the ceiling:

the fruit cellar/closet:

After A LOT of work, the room was reborn as a bedroom with aqua walls and "Carolina parakeet" trim:

note the ceiling! the carpet! the lack of cobwebs! To compare, the window is the same window that is covered by a bamboo shade inthe first pic.

Finally, the room is no longer needed as a primary bedroom. Lucky for me, it is now a guestroom/craft room!

See the closet? No longer a fruit cellar!
And that is the story of the three lives of the garage room.

[Edit: I don't know why this posted twice. Sorry.]

These are the first things I've ever stenciled. I used freezer paper, and it worked great! I x-posted on the baby board, but I wanted to post them here since this is where I got the freezer paper tut Smiley

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / etched goodness for new parents on: September 17, 2005 03:19:37 PM
I made these for a friend of mine who had a baby (their first) recently. This was my first attempt at doing words, and it'll probably be awhile before I do it again! But I like how these turned out.
