Glass Etching

I bought some glass etching creme last week.  I'm really excited to try it, but I think I have a problem.  I buy all of this craft crap, and then I'm afraid to use it!!  What if I mess it up?  Then I've wasted some perfectly good material, or a good glass!!  I DID get my glasses from Dollar Tree, so they were only $1, but I'm so scared!!  It's so dumb.  I don't know why I have such a fear.

Anyway......  I bought some etching creme for my glasses, and I can't WAIT to try it!!  If I can get it figured out, I'm going to make some up for the drinkers in Danny's family.  I've been trying to think of some phrases that go with drinking and Danny's family!  Do you have any suggestions? 

Something else to be etched with the glass creme?  A teeny tiny bottle with a cork, for 'fairy dust'!  I'm planning on etching the word 'wish' onto my tiny bottle!  I'm really looking forward to trying this stuff out!  I tried it last week on the tiny bottle, but I couldn't get the word 'wish' cut out of my vinyl.  I'm going to try to get some words printed on paper to help me with cutting out the template for my glasses.  Anyway...what would you put on a wine glass, if you didn't really KNOW the recipient, but you knew that she liked to drink?  I thought about YUM, but then I thought that maybe sounded silly.  What should I do??  I guess it would be really nice to get a neat fact about them, or a favorite quote of theirs, to put on the glasses!!!  I just thought about something else....a drinking quote from Marilyn Monroe or another really cool actress!  I've got it!!  =)  Have a great day!!

Chinese Toddler Hit and Run

So, I just read an article on Yahoo!, about a two year old girl in China who was hit by a van, and instead of helping, several vehicles drove right past the girl, not even slowing down.  A second truck actually hit the girl AGAIN!!  Finally, a woman stepped in and helped the girl out of the street to where her mother had just arrived.  Apparently, in China, people are afraid to help, for fear of being blamed and possibly prosecuted!!  Are you kidding me?  You can't help a BABY off of the street, because you are afraid to get blamed??  How disgusting is that?! 

What would you do?  If you feared that you would be blamed for a horrendous crime if you helped a child, would you NOT help?  Would you let a poor baby lay there, dying, so you didn't possibly get in trouble?  I don't care what the consequences are, if I see a child in trouble, I'm going to help!!  No matter what!!  I couldn't live with myself if I didn't help.  The Bible says, whatever you do to the least of these, you've done to me.

It's been a while....

So, I haven't been on here in a couple weeks.  Sadly, it's because I hurt my stupid knee.  I have NO clue what I did, but I could hardly walk on it, I couldn't drive (because I drive a standard), and I was off work for two weeks.  Not fun.  I am still waiting on someone to call me to schedule an MRI, that should be either today or tomorrow.  Fun stuff.  I've been laying around, sleeping a LOT.  I told my boss that I would work from home, but he didn't want me to, said he didn't have the authority to let me do that.  Whatever.  So, I did nothing.  I watched a LOT of TV, I didn't do many crafts, because I have to be moving to do those.  I haven't used my sewing machine in about three weeks, that's terrible!!  On the plus side though....I have a fun new crafting obsession!!  Polymer Clay!!!  I've been working with it for about a week now, while hanging on the couch, and it's fun!!  I've made a couple charms so far, and that's really it.  I made a candy corn charm, a cupcake charm, a halloween lollipop charm, and a couple glow in the dark star charms.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do with this stuff, the possibilities are endless!!  I was on YouTube almost all day last week, watching tutorials for the clay!  I learned how to make a Pacman charm bracelet, ice cream charms, and several other charms!!  I'm hoping to start crafting for Christmas soon, and I think this will help me with gifts for the small girls in my husband's family!  Yay!!  I think the next post I write will be about Christmas crafting, so stay tuned!!  =)
