Whew, been busy again! My In Laws came up for a visit on Friday, and I had a good time showing stamping stores and such to my mother in law. We don't get to see them too often because of how busy life gets, and the fact that they are about 12 hours away by car. So, always nice being able to spend some time together. I was showing her copics, stamping techniques, and where to find things she couldn't find in her home town.
We were out and about seeing some fun projects and decided to try our hands at one yesterday. We saw a glittered pumpkin at AC Moore in Martha's crafting section. We were in love when we saw it. We grabbed some pumpkins, and glitter at Michael's, cuz they were on sale there. She found a kit at Michael's with the glue, I had the glue before from a kit I found at Christmas time in Michael's. My MIL made the orange pumpkin, and I made the red one. I started the half glitteritized one in the back, but the glue kept drying too fast. So, I had to stop working on it. I had decided that I want to use a spray adhesive to see if it would cover better. For my red pumpkin, I just stuck my hand in the bottle of glue, and spread it around. My MIL dumped the glitter on it. It did cover very nicely this way, but what a mess! LOL! Totally a fun project. Gabi's dying to make the big one with me. I have a bronze glitter for it!
Side note, some happy mail today! I won some fun blog candy off Danni's Dream! It arrived today! Such great stuff in there! Thanks, Danni! Can't wait to use the angel wings shimmerz! Hopefully, I'll be playing soon! I also had ordered some new Magnolias! They arrived today. Last week was some new TAC stuff, so I'm dying to play with that stuff too! So much stuff, too little time!
