DIY Gift Tags

These ornaments are so adorable...and super EASY I might add.
It gave me some inspiration to create personal name tags for gifts that double as Christmas ornaments. What a great way to save paper and create something that can be enjoyed year after year!
Using Concepts® Underglazes gives perfect coverage and is super easy to apply! However to give your project that brilliant shine you must use pure•brilliance™ Clear Glaze!!! You don't have a kiln you say...then create the project using OS™ Opaque Acrylics and seal your with any of our Spray Sealers!
The project photo above shows additional embellishments glued on with Aleene’s® Fabric Fusion™ Permanent Dry Cleanable Fabric Adhesive™...I might "jazz" mine up a bit by using Tulip® Glam-It-Up!™ Iron-On Crystals™...I just LOVE bling!!!
Once I finish up a couple of mine I will add the pics to my blog!
Create some gift tags, ornaments or a project...send it my way and I will feature you on my blog!

Happy Birthday!!!

Yes...30 happens.
Yesterday my husband turned 30 years old.
I know its just a number and its all about how you feel.
However, he took it better than I did...I was depressed to leave my 20's.
So...in honor of his birthday...we had a birthday weekend!
On Friday night we went to dinner with my mom at The Public House...
Which was absolutely FANTASTIC! Delicious food...great beer...and fun atmosphere!
Saturday he went with his friends to breakfast and then for target practice...
Sunday we went to breakfast with his family, shopping at Sears (so he can spend his birthday gift card), off to Costco to pick up our Christmas cards...then home to relax! For dinner we had one of his favorites...Spicy Chicken Nachos! Yum!
The birthday will still continue...this upcoming Saturday we are off to the Metallica concert!!!!
Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!

This year Thanksgiving was at my cousins house in Coarsegold! His house is the perfect house for entertaining! They have several acres of property, complete with horses and an adorable guest house! This is a picture of the back yard area...from the porch/screened patio!

We had several heaters out on the porch...got a little chilly!
The picture above is the adults table!

My cousin Ryan had to work...so he and his crew were able to break away for a little bite to eat!Yes, you guessed...he is a firefighter!

Hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
Now it's only 25 days until Christmas!!!
Better get started crafting!
