Yep, another posting for today....

My niece and nephew slept over last night and we got to make a bunch of projects together.  Here's what we came up with for St. Patrick's Day:

Valentine's Day Projects 2013

Finally getting a chance to update the blog with new projects I completed with my niece and nephew (Kait and Nic).

We made some Valentine's Day shadow boxes:

Kait decided she liked this one better -- so this is the one her family has.

You can't see the ornaments too well but they are such pretty glass ornaments.  I was kind of glad Kait preferred the other one so I could keep this for our decoration.
It was fun making these together and teaching the kids how to cut and weed vinyl.  They got lots of practice over the last couple of days (more projects to be posted).
Thanks for looking!

Christmas 2012 Projects

It's been a while since my first post. Too much going on in life to get a chance to post on the blog.

I wanted to share some projects my niece and nephew (Kaitlin and Nicholas) helped me make.

These are ornaments we made for family and friends.  The kids had fun picking out the glitter colors for each person.

We also made Santa Ornaments for gifts for family and friends:
You can't tell from the picture but we used two different colors for the ornaments and the belts were either smooth or satin.  So much fun making these with the kids!
We also made several Christmas shadow boxes for family and friends.  The kids got to pick out what color ornaments they wanted for inside the shadow boxes and what color vinyl for the lettering.  They took a while to cut and weed out and get placed on the glass but they were so pretty!

There were more but I didn't get pictures before they were given out as gifts.
We also made a glass block.  Kait and Nic picked out their design and put it on one side of the glass block. 

Here is the glass block all lit up -- looks so much better than the pictures show.
That's it for the Christmas projects!  Thank you for looking.
