Catching Up…

other crafts No Comments »

I always think I’m about to catch up on things in my craft room when another project comes along.

This week I made a Game of Thrones wine glass, a volleyball themed card and two personalized dog bandannas for a dog-lover client who wants to gift them to a fairly well-known husky in Canada – Nymeria.

Nymeria is walking across Canada with her owner, Bret Mavriik to raise awareness about children’s mental health (Follow Our Walk – I’d link it but the link I went to is dead and I don’t want to send you to the wrong place).

Here are the week’s results:

It might not seem like much production for a whole week but the wine glasses take 4 days and they get a lot of glitter everywhere so I had to completely finish that project before moving on to something else.

I had to wash the broadcloth before I could cut out and sew the bandannas so that took a little extra time as well. (I also forgot to flip the heat transfer vinyl before cutting it out so I wasted half a sheet…dummy!)

DH is away visiting his family so I’m a single dog parent at the moment.  That – and trying to master the snowblower because spring will never arrive in Newfoundland – is also keeping me pretty busy/tired during the week.

Hoping to deglitter the craft room tomorrow and play with a few new stamp sets…can’t remember the last time I made a card for fun.

Busy month so far but I haven’t had time to share my projects.

I’ve mostly been glittering wine glasses – I should have a few Paddy’s Day themed ones to share by week’s end.

In between painstakingly sealing wine glass stems, I made a couple of makeup brush holders.  I couldn’t find the shape that I’ve been seeing on Pinterest (other than the stemless wine glasses but I didn’t want to use those) so I bought a couple of small glass canisters and tossed the lids.

NOTE:  These things use a LOT of glitter…and a lot of sealer…and a lot of patience.  I doubt I’ll get into making them.

I don’t have much in the way of makeup brushes so I used paint brushes for the picture.  A cute project but not worth the time/supplies.
