gift for my daughter

My daughter had been leaving her fingernail polish on the kitchen table and the coffee table so I thought I would do with the nail polish what I have done with my re-inkers.  I used card-stock and made rows to hold the bottles.  In this case it is some, but not all, of her nail polish bottles.  I would need the other half of the Snapware container, that I just purchased for more re-inkers, to fit all of her nail polish bottles. There are about 75 in the container now and you can see from the bag on top of the container that there are plenty more to go.

The top snaps into place and multiple layers connect one layer could hold all the tools she uses, like files and cuticle clippers etc...
I have three layers for my re-inkers, my Stickles, my embossing powders etc...

Any way, I just thought I would share my little morning project.

Thanks for tuning in.

Merry Christmas one and all

My daughter chose a 4.5 foot tree and has 150 ornaments on it.  If it were up to me, I wouldn't have a tree.  I have 12 bins of ornaments up in the attic.  WAY TOO MUCH TROUBLE. 

Best wishes for 2013.

Thanks for tuning in.  Hope to have lots to share in the new year.

glue dots and gloobers

Hi all, sorry I haven't posted in awhile, been busy, sick or had no mojo.  I just posted this on facebook, but thought I would do a post here too.  Wanted to show off my glue dots.  I make my own using Aleene's TACK-IT over and over.  This is not an add for her product.  Just a helpful hint.  I use the "paper" that comes wrapped around my ATG tapes and just touch the tip of the bottle to it in rows, making some large, some small and even some tiny ones.  This takes about 30 minutes to an hour to dry.  Gloobers actually take about a day to dry, but this is so much more economical than buying them, if you can even find them - Gloobers, that is.  Are you asking yourself, "what are gloobers?"  They are the two inch round glue dots that you use to make a large flower with.  You get some ruffled ribbon or lace and glue it down in a spiral then top it off with a nice brad or button.  Wait a minute let me find one and get a photo.

Here's one.  Cool isn't it?  The camera washed out the yellow a little as this ribbon is a pretty and vibrant Clover Meadow green.  The button I love.  I found it among the buttons my aunt had been collecting.  After she passed away in May I was gifted with her collection -  Thank you, Aunt Ibby.  

Back to my glue dots, I use my paper piercer to pick them up and place them exactly where I want them.  They never dry out and only occasionally get a cat hair on them, no biggie.  Those of you who live with cats probably know what I am talking about.  Especially the cats who think when you aren't there they should be guarding your scrap desk.

Well, I hope I haven't bored you too badly.  I have to get back to gift making.  Got to get them in the mail soon.  It is the first of December - egads!!!!

Thanks for tuning in as always.  Comments and questions are appreciated.
