They made etching cream illegal in my city (Philadelphia) this week. So anyone who wants to get their etch on has to order it online now.

Wow!  I was just in Philly this weekend & we were wondering why we couldn't find it anywhere, lol!

Of course, I have jumped on the glass etching bandwagon.  My pictures are really bad, but maybe if you squint... Smiley

I started with the idea of making my own Mikasa "Cheers" glasses that seem to be everywhere right now!  These wine glasses were on clearance for 50 cents each at the Target dollar spot.  I'm actually waiting for them to go to 25 cents so I can really load up Smiley

Anyway... the stripes didn't go so well, so I ended up with two polka dots (one has dots that are all the same size and the other has multiple sizes), a swirly and a skull and crossbones for my fiance (it's kind of hard to see, though).

I bought a big mug from the dollar store and put "The Best Boss in the World" on it as a x-mas present for my boss. Did I think to snap a quick pic of it before I gave it to him? Noooo. I am such an idiot sometimes. He got all misty eyed when I gave it to him and couldn't believe I did it myself.

Stupid Kills. But not enough to really help.

Etching cream is SOOOO fun!  I plan on "holiday-izing" a set of glasses for each upcoming holiday!!!  St Pattys,  Easter, Halloween (you get the picture)

Here's my Valentines glasses!

I also made a "valentines cookie plate" that's posted over on the valentine's holiday board.

Puddin,  I just cut out a heart from a piece of contact paper.  This is where I found the instructions for these glasses:

I jumped on the etching bandwagon...it's going ok but getting the Armour Etch required a top secret security clearance (anyone else have that problem?) the lady at Michael's had to walk it up to the cash register for me  Roll Eyes , i almost wondered if she was going to walk it home for me..heh

I tried a couple of glasses and some small jars, I dont reccomend celtic knot stencils for a beginner project though...stickers...lots and lots of stickers! I'm also really surprised at how cheap glass is...which probably makes up for the 25 dollar bottle of etching cream.
