Monogrammed Pencil Holder

What do you do to cheer yourself up? Do you splurge on ice cream? Go to the mall? Read a book? Knock out a glass, or two, or three of wine? Not that I'm speaking on experience on that last one.

I want to know how do you turn that frown upside down?

You wanna know how I make it through a rough day? I craft. My MIL cleans. Like ALOT. Like as in she may or may not vaccuum the same room five times in one night. I suppose that habit would be alot more beneficial than bombing your house with glitter & glue guns.

To me there's something so therapeutic about crafting.

I especially love the challenge of taking something & giving it a whole new life.

Like this little blue ceramic canister the hubby picked up the other day because he "figured I could do something with it". You bet your bottom dollar I had just the idea for this little thingamajig.

Mercury Glass Planters

I still had some of that Looking Glass spray paint left over from my DIY mercury project.

I thought it would be cool to have some silver mirrored stripes on the jar along with the initial of our last name. All I did was tape off my stripes AND then I allowed my Silhouette machine to come back into my life. Oh. I didn't tell you! Yeah, the two of us have been on a trial separation after I almost threw her out my office window a few months ago while trying to make some favor tags for my grandma's surprise party. It didn't end well. Luckily, this time she cooperated & cut a vinyl circle & "B" for me.
