    Default 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. 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!!!!

    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 Guess they can decide which side to display
    My big sis:



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


    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!!! 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. 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?

    they look great!!!! I got you beat, I still have one gift left to make (I haven't showered and just found another gift that I forgot to wrap last night. YIKES!!!)

    and I'm sad about Isaiah's gifts, I can't even imagine how you're feeling. ((HUGS))

    HaHa! I got a little green when I was making the UT one Nancy . 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.
