A Little Behind the Scenes How Did you Do That?

Since It is an Official 3 Day Holiday Weekend
I took full advantage of being off work.
No disruptions all PLAY TIME

So I have been busy In my Studio getting
some new Creations ready for my Shop

During The Summer I found a bag of these
plastic Christmas reindeer. I really
thought they needed a bit of Holiday Sparkle!
I painted them with white Glue and then
dusted them with glitter. I will show
you the whole flock when I get them completed.

And this is an overview of some of
my completed projects.

I have made some new Vintage Inspired
Cupcake Picks I sell them by the Dozen
Each one is dusted with glitter accents
and I add a little satin bow, and then
I paint some pink dots on the backs, so they
are pretty no matter which way you are
looking at them.

And then I am also working on my vintage jello mold
Party Favor Cups. If you remember I had a slew
of these and painted the lot all at once. Now I add
a personal touch! The Pipe cleaners are used for the
handles and I love adding a few vintage mercury
glass beads to each!

You see I use the same technique brush on some
white glue and then dust with sparkle!

Then I let the sugared molds dry
and then the fun begins.
Each one hand made with Love!

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to this
Holiday weekend. I'm also working on just a few
Halloween projects, let's see if I can get those completed by
midweek. We have our flag flying and meat cooking
and a big batch of our famous homemade Potato salad
a celebration to all of us hard working Americans. (:
