Hanukkah Painted Jars

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Crafts and Parties | Comments Off on Hanukkah Painted Jars

This was my first time using glass paint, and now I’m completely hooked.  It’s fairly quick and easy to do.  Unfortunately I found the instructions on the glass paint (and online) to be a bit lacking and so I kind of just monkeyed my way through it.  This produced a few minor failures but I’m in love with the painting method on these jars that I’m going to share with you.  It looks like sea glass.

Thanksgivukkah Printables

I am excited and nervous to share these with you.  This is my first set of printables that I made for public consumption.  Let me be clear, I am not a graphic designer.  I have taught myself everything I know about photoshop and illustrator.  These aren’t professional quality.  There are a lot of small errors.  But they’re cute and they were fun to make, and if you want them, they’re yours.

I have to say I think I like that Hanukkah’s so early this year.  I feel like December is usually a mad scramble to get gifts done for my family, my coworkers, and my friends.  This year, I just have to get my family’s gifts taken care of by the end of November, and then I have all of december for everyone else.  Plus, the malls are a lot less busy in November.

Glow-in-the-dark Spooky Eyes for Halloweeen

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  What can I say, I love any opportunity to wear a costume.  I was the child who never grew out of playing dress-up.  I can’t say that I’m the type who always has fantastically elaborate or super-creative costumes, but I do enjoy getting the chance to make my own costume every year.  The last few years I’ve also enjoyed making my daughter’s costumes.  Last year I even made my husband’s.  I’m usually scrambling to get them done in time, because I never start early enough, but this year I wanted an excuse to finish a historical garment that was already mostly done (my 1910s dress), so I had some extra time.  I’m not the sort of person that likes extra time so I decided I should throw a Halloween party.
