Continuing on with crafts, I finished this up after a marathon session one afternoon when the nipper showed up 6 weeks early and took everyone by surprise, especially the mother!!!
I'd done a bunch of paint-pour ornaments, one of which was pink, so I decided to add the puffy paint with her name. The back says '2014', and there are 2 heart shaped rhinestones on either side.
And of course I couldn't just take the easy way out and buy a card.
This is the inside of the card.
I saw a tutorial for a Pet Ghost in a Jar HERE, and decided to put one together. It took way less time than I expected it would and I had to fudge a few things but it came out so CUTE! I did use the battery operated tealight under the lid like in the instructions but it isn't very bright at all.
More steampunk keys. My craft shows are coming up soon so I thought I'd make some more. I forgot how time consuming it is to make them.
More paint-pour ornaments. They are still hard to get total coverage, despite multiple coats and drying them in the oven. Then of course I broke out the rhinestones, mostly to hide the flaws in the paint.
I saw a thumbprint reindeer ornament on Pinterest so decided to give it a try.
I'd also been wanting to try these chocolate kiss pumpkin cookies. I was underwhelmed by the results. For one, I had to cut the recipe in half because I didn't want 5 dozen cookies, so I think I may have screwed up on the measurements. They came out kind of bland and dry. I only had dark chocolate kisses instead of regular. I hate throwing them in the trash but I really don't think I'm going to eat them.
We're still having such nice weather that I'm back out there, eeking out as many walks as possible before winter sets in for good.
