Now that the Christmas Holiday Season is coming to an end, it's time to start thanking all those wonderful people for the FAB gifts you received. I hand stamped these Thank You cards using a new stamp - Beautifully Baroque- from Stampin' Up for the peeps I need to thank!
It's a clean and simple card~
The best kind in my book!
Hop on over to my Facebook page to win your own set. A winner will be chosen at 5:00 p.m.(EST) tomorrow!
Friday was my last day of school until the end of January- Woot Woot~ Words can't begin to describe the exhaustion my body is feeling at the moment. Since Thanksgiving, I've suffered from a sinus infection, the seasonal flu, and a bad, bad, bad cold. My body is yelling, "STOP and REST, Girl.! I'm tired! I need to heal! Chill Out a while!" So, the only gift I'm asking for this year from Jolly Ole' St. Nick is a lot of R&R. In the midst of all the madness that comes with preparing for the Winter Break with 47 second graders, I managed to create a little Holiday Cheer for my colleagues with a simple gift- a roll of wrapping paper with handmade ornament tags.
I made a luminary Advent calendar using glassware rescued from local thrift stores. It was easy to make. Those of you who have been following me for some time know that I love "easy peasy lemon squeezy" projects, but it has to be visually appealing - aka cute! This project is no different.
Gather 25 uniquely shaped pieces of glassware. Or not so unique. Whatever flats your fancy. Do a quick cycle in the dishwasher.
You'll also need number stickers and spray paint. I chose silver metallic and frosted glass.
Carefully peel and stick the numbers on the glassware.
I took the glasses outside to my handy dandy paint shop, aka garage. I divided the glasses into two groups- metallic and frosted. After a few thin coats (allowing the paint to dry 30 minutes between each coat), I peeled off the numbers and allowed the paint to dry for 48 hours. (It took longer for the metallic paint.)
Add tealight candles, and let the countdown begin...
