About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Snow Globes and a Winner...

Hey Cuties! I am here to answer the call of the Snow Globe! Doesn't that sound MIGHTY?>:) They are really quite easy to make, you just have to be careful with the adhesives that you choose....

1) Get some baby food jars, jam jars, etc. I have used both and they both work well.

2) Find a cute item as your feature piece. Be sure that it will fit as you don't want something too puny (been there, done that) or something too large. I used trees from Hobby Lobby (40% this week in the Christmas craft aisle).

3) Rough up your inside lid with some sandpaper.

4) Glue your item to the lid with epoxy, Liquid Nails or Super Glue. Let dry for a couple of hours.

5) Fill your jar with distilled water and 2 drops of glycerin. Do not use too much glycerin or your glitter will stick to the bottom of the jar.

6) Shake in your glitter. We used the white glitter with big flakes as it looks like real snow.

7) Use caulk to seal the lid of your snow globe. Let dry overnight before turning snow globe over.

**Have FUN!**
