First, here's this week's sketch from The Outlawz:
I kinda didn't do a good job of following the sketch this week. I was trying to remember the elements instead of looking for the printed version. FAIL!
Here are some wine charms I made for my cousin's birthday using Flirty Anya from The Greeting Farm, a sheet of ShrinkyDinks, Staz-On ink, and my Staedlter colored pencils:
Sorry for the bad picture, but they're reflective. (I also didn't bother editing this picture...) And still aren't finished. You know how you're supposed to poke holes before you bake your ShrinkyDinks? Well, poke a real hole. Don't try to be cute like me and make little holes. It was my first time; I definitely learned the lesson. I have to find my monofilament to see if I can salvage the ones with teeny holes.
A big thank you to Linda at Lindy's Maid Wid Luv for sending me some seriously cute stick pens. Also, I've received a couple of blog awards that I have been meaning to get handled. As much as I love being awarded, it feels like homework when I have to go through all the steps some of these things have. But don't stop sending them!! :D So, first I have the Liebster Blog Award. I got this one from Gina and Chiffon - thanks ladies!! This blog is for smaller blogs (under 300 followers). It's a chance to share some blog love and introduce our readers to blogs that they might not have discovered yet.
As a recipient of this award I must share the love and pay it forward by:
1-Creating a post where you blog about the Liebster award & and reveal your 3-5 blog picks
2-Let them know you chose them
3-Copy & paste the blog award on your blog
4-Have faith that your followers will rally & show their crafty love back out to those you awarded
So here are some blogs I think you should visit: First, you should go to Gina and Chiffon's blogs. I know that's kinda like cheating, but I really don't know how they aren't over the limit for this award already... I'm also passing this over to Candy at Purple Card Lady and Alethea at LiLo Designs. Check them out!
I have another award I need to post, but I feel like this is too long already! Katrina (FlutterbyTrina), I'm coming! :)
