News in my life includes me going back to school. I start this Tuesday. I am so excited about that. I never thought at my age I would want to go back to school.
I am also going to be a first time Grandmother sometime in January. My daughter-in-law, Kim, is actually due January 15, 2016.
Also on life events, my daughter, Bree, starts Cosmetology School on January 4, 2016.
We have been a busy family.
On a crafting note, I have been doing a lot of crafting and thought I would share a couple of the things that I have been making.
Today I am sharing the snowmen.
These are constructed out of a dinner sized plate for a base. I turned the plate upside down. Then the body of these snowmen are either round fishbowls or vases. The hats are a pillar candle base and a drinking glass. The top hat is accented with half-marbles to form the scarf on the hat.
ALL of the painting or snow effects are done inside the bowl.
They are glued with a CLEAR water resistant/heat resistant glue.
I was very pleased with my end result. When the sunlight hits them there are rainbows on the walls. I sold everyone that I made with the exception of the 4 that I have held back as gifts.
I love making things from things that people discard.
