Nothing like waiting til the last minute... (pic heavy)

Merry Christmas Eve girls!

I FINALLY am done with my crafts and gifts! I started this morning and planned on finishing by lunch. Well I wrapped a gift and went to put it under the tree and it all went downhill after that. I didn't realize or even think about that all the gifts under the tree were tagged with Isaiah's name on them too. Sad So, not my best day to say the least. I thought about just leaving them and probably would have saved some tears but I didn't want anyone to be upset when they went to open their gift, so I busted out some new tags and with that behind me I just needed to recoop b/4 finishing presents.

Here's my finished projects complete with comments!!!! ROFL

For my friend (they are Saints fans). DH wanted me to put Saints on there but I liked their names instead. He says it not "sporty" enough now. WHATEVER!!!

I had trouble with etching glass blocks. I think it was the brush I used b/c I've since been more happy with some glasses I etched. So, they have scrapped fronts and etched backs Lol Guess they can decide which side to display :dontknow:
My big sis:

Little sis: (initials, sorry the pic isn't great, no scrap, I liked her etch Lol

Niece: She's 15 & truly thinks she's all that!!! What teen doesn't?

Nephew's:

OK, finally for mom. Greg is going to bust a gut when he sees this!!!! He doesn't even let me buy orange soda at the store for crying out loud!!! ROFL She will love it though b/c for some ridiculous reason she's a UT fan.

I'm done!

After looking at your glass blocks, I'm so gonna try them! They are awesome! I really love how you did the front and back...that gives the recipients a "change" if they want it. So cool!

I'm sorry you had a bad day though sweetie. Sad Love ya!

Those projects are awesome! (Well, except for the Vols one, it's hideous! LOL) Everyone will appreciate the amount of time you spent and they really do look lovely.

I've only ever used frosting spray and vinyl on the glass blocks. I am wanting to try and etch sometime this next year. What brushes were you using and which ones gave you issues?

HaHa! I got a little green :puke: when I was making the UT one Nancy :lol:. I'm making Greg a Bama one soon! ROLL TIDE

I used a paintbrush and it made strokes. A foam brush works better but honestly I may try the frosting spray on a block if I do one again. The etching works great on small designs & applied with a q-tip. It's much harder to cover large areas. I did read on the cricut board to clean the glass blocks with rubbing alcohol first. That may be helpful.

i'm sorry about Isaiah's gifts Sad That must've been very hard for you. You are so strong, you know that? You amaze me and from what I know of you on here, I love you to bits.

Those gifts are terrific! All of them! My fave is the scrapped part of the first glass block cuz it's stunning Biggrin

Awesome gifts! Did you get the idea for the name one from the Cricut board? I did ones because of seeing one on there.
