I don't have littles anymore. My boys are 20 and 22. I miss the giggling and squeals. I am NOT, however, ready for grandbabies.
I was searching of other ways to help people and I found Hero Network. There are simple wishes (a get-well or birthday card, or small gift) and there are really big wishes.
I made this for a little girl whose family fell on hard times and can't afford much for her birthday. Every little girl deserves something special and fun, especially on their birthday. So I knitted this hat. I like it so much, I may make one for myself next!
Don't know how to knit? No worries, it is an easy pattern.
I wasn't quite satisfied with my glue gun snowflakes. They needed a little...well, a lot of pizzazz. So I got out the Extra Fine Glitter, some glue, a piece of paper (to catch the glitter dust) and a small paint brush.
I placed the snowflake on the piece of paper with the flat (or bottom) side up. I then dabbed glue on the snowflake and sprinkled the glitter dust onto the snowflake. I let it dry completely, tapped the extra glitter off and now my glue gun snowflakes have pizzazz.
I believe I'll be using glitter glue sticks for those I give away as gifts or I'll be glittering the kitchen table again.
Sorry, your food sparkles honey.
A friend gave me several glass bead snowflakes for my tree last year. They are very fragile, ornate and gorgeous. I love them. Unfortunately...one has already been broken. It got me thinking about how to replicate their intricacy without the delicacy. So I played around with my glue gun, making dots and dashes mostly and then eventually coming up with snowflake designs.
